They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. 40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 40 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, The hrist. . . 42 And he brought him to Jesus.

the water-pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he said unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bore it. 9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servants which drew the water knew,) the goversior of the feast called the bridegroom, to And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set so good wine; and when men nave well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. 12 || After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples; and they continued there not many days. 13 || And the Jews' passover was at hand ; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 And found in the temple

CHAP. III. The necessity of regeneration. HERE was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered, and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he

time into his mother’s womb, and be born ? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water, and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. 9 Nicodemus answered, and said unto him, How can these things be 1O Jesus answered, and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things : 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things : 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man, which is in heaven. 14 is And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up; 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have etcrual life. 16 is For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
