16  Sic [enim] Deus dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret: ut
omnis qui credit in eum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam æternam.
[Alleluia.]
17  Non enim misit Deus Filium suum in mundum ut judicet mundum
sed ut salvetur mundus per ipsum.
[Alleluia.]

16  Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt, daß er seinen eingebornen Sohn gab, auf daß alle,
die an ihn glauben, nicht verloren werden, sondern das ewige Leben haben.

16  God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
[Alleluia]
17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through him might be saved.
[Alleluia.] [Amen].

16  Úgy szerette Isten a világot, hogy egyszülött Fiát adta, hogy
mindaz aki őbenne hisz, el ne vesszen, hanem örök élete legyen.
