For no man coulde do suche miracles as thou doest/ except God were with him. The same cam to Iesus by nyght/ & sayde vnto him. Rabbi/ we knowe that thou arte a teacher whiche arte come from God.

3:6 That whych is boren of the flesshe/ is flesshe. And that which is boren of the sprete/ is sprete. That which is boren of the flesshe/ is flesshe: & that which is boren of the sprete/ is sprete. That which is boren of the flesshe/ is fiesshe: and that which is boren of the sprete/ is sprete. That which is borne of flesh, is flesh: & that which is borne of the sprete, is sprete.
3:7 Marvayle nott that I sayd to the/ ye must be boren a newe. Marvayle not that I sayd to the/ ye must be boren a newe. Maruayle not that I sayd to the/ ye must be boren a newe. Maruell not, that I sayde vnto ye: Ye must be borne of new.
3:8 The wynde bloweth where he listeth/ and thou hearest his sounde: butt thou canst nott tell whence he commeth and whether he goeth. So is every man that is boren of the sprete. The wynde bloweth where he listeth/ & thou hearest his sounde: but canst not tell whence he cometh and whether he goeth. So is every man that is boren of the sprete. The wynde bloweth where he lysteth/ and thou hearest his sounde: but canst not tell whence he cometh and whether he goeth. So is euery man that is boren of the sprete. The wynde bloweth where he wyl, and thou hearest his sounde: but thou canst not tell whēce he commeth, and whither he goeth. So is euery one, that is borne of the sprete.

3:12 Yff I have tolde you erthely thyngſ and ye have not beleved: Howe shulde ye beleve if I shall tell you of hevenly thyngſ? Yf when I tell you erthely thinges/ ye beleve not: how shuld ye beleve/ yf I shall tell you of hevenly thinges? If when I tell you erthly thinges/ ye beleue not: how shuld ye beleue yf I shall tell you of heuenly thinges? Yf ye beleue not whan I tell you of earthly thinges, how shulde ye beleue, whā I speake vnto you of heauenly thinges?
3:13 And noo man hath ascended vppe to heven/ butt he that cam doune from heven/ that ys to saye the sonne of man/ which is in heven. And no man ascendeth vp to heaven/ but he that came doune from heaven/ that is to saye/ the sonne of man which is in heaven. And no man ascendeth vp to heauen/ but he that came doune from heauen/ that is to saye/ the sonne of man which is in heauen. And noman ascendeth vp in to heauen, but he that is come downe from heauē, (namely) the sonne of man which is in heauen.
3:14 And as Moses lifte vppe the serpent in wyldernes/ even soo must the sonne off man be lifte vppe/ And as Moses lifte vp the serpent in the wyldernes/ even so must the sonne of man be lifte vp/ And as Moses lyfte vp the serpent in the wildernes/ euen so must the sonne of man be lyfte vp/ And like as Moses lift vp the serpent in the wyldernes, euen so must the sonne of man be lift vp,
3:15 that noo man which beleveth in hym perisshe: but have eternall lyfe. that none that beleveth in him perisshe: but have eternall lyfe. that none that beleueth in him perisshe: but haue eternall lyfe. that who so euer beleueth in him, shulde not perish, but haue euerlastinge life.
3:16 God soo loved the worlde/ that he gave his ōly sonne for the entent/ that none that beleve in hym/ shulde perisshe: Butt shulde have everlastynge lyfe. For God so loveth the worlde/ yt he hath geven his only sonne/ that none that beleve in him/ shuld perisshe: but shuld have everlastinge lyfe. For God so loueth the worlde/ that he hath geuen his only sonne/ that none that beleue in him/ shuld perisshe: but shuld haue euerlastinge lyfe.

3:18 He that beleveth on hym shall not be condempned. But he that beleveth nott/ is condempned all redy/ be cause he beleveth nott in the name off the only sonne off God. He that beleveth on him/ shall not be condēpned. But he that beleveth not/ is condempned all redy/ be cause he beleveth not in the name of the only sonne of God. He that beleueth on him/ shall not be condempned. But he that beleueth not/ is condempned all redy/ because he beleueth not in the name of the only sonne of God. He that beleueth on him, shal not be cōdemned. But he that beleueth not, is cōdemned allready: because he beleueth not on the name of the onely sonne of God.
3:19 And this is the condempnacion: Light is come into the worlde/ and the men have loved darcknes more then light/ be cause their dedes were evyll. And this is the condempnacion: that light is come into the worlde/ & the mē loved darcknes more then light/ because their dedes were evill. And this is the condempnacion/ that lyght is come into the worlde/ and the men loued darcknes more then lyght/ because their dedes were euyll. But this is ye cōdempnacion, that the light is come in to the worlde, and men loued the darknesse more thē ye light: for their workes were euell.
3:20 For every man that evyll doeth/ hateth the light: nether commeth to light/ lest his dedes shulde be reproved. For every man that evyll doeth/ hateth the light: nether commeth to light/ lest his dedes shuld be reproved. For euery man that euyll doeth/ hateth the lyght: nether commeth to lyght/ lest his dedes shuld be reproued. Whosoeuer doth euell, hateth the light, and cōmeth not to the light, that his dedes shulde not be reproued.
3:21 Butt he that doth the trueth/ cōmeth to the light/ that his dedes myght be knowē/ howe that they are wroght in God. But he that doth truth/ commeth to the light/ that his dedes might be knowen/ how that they are wrought in God. But he that doth trueth/ commeth to the lyght that his dedes myght be knowē/ how that they are wrought in God. But he that doth the trueth, commeth to the light, that his workes maye be knowne: for they are done in God.
