Original text and translations
3:14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up:
3:15 That whosoever believeth in him Should not perish but have eternal life.
12:32 I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me.
3:16 For God, so lov’d the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
