John 3:16


The Most Famous Quote Ever

This single quote from the Bible is probably the best known quote ever. In the King James Version, it reads:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

In this lens, I will also include verse 17 at times:

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

This particular verse might be explained as follows:

For God the Father so loved the world, that He gave His one and only God the Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not be deprived of God's presence, but spend eternity with God in perfect joy and happiness.

This particular verse has been translated into over 4000 languages. It is published in the most widely published book ever.

This verse often shows up at ball games, and in other unexpected places. Here is an example Eye Black Messages on Squidoo.

It summarizes the entire Bible in one sentence.

I have spent many hours looking for this verse in as many languages as I could find. In this Lens, I will share with you what took me a long time to gather: this verse in as many languages as possible.

Read on. You may find this verse in your favorite language. The more languages I find, the more I will post.

The Story Behind This Project

For years, I knew a woman named Hildegard Winter. She spoke English and German. I would take the children over to her house and we would read the Bible in German and pray in English, and I did this fairly regularly for awhile. She was a dear sweet lady who lived into her 90's and eventually went home to be with the Lord. She would go into nursing homes and sing and read the Bible to the people there, in either English or German. She befriended my mother-in-law, who has also gone Home. At some point, Hildegard asked me to take over her work when she went Home. That was the most wonderful inheritance I ever received from anybody! Going to nursing homes wasn't something I could readily do, but what I COULD do is present parts of the Bible in many languages, on the internet.

After awhile, Hildegard went to live in a nursing home herself. One day, I took copies of some of my language pages and showed her how I was carrying out her legacy. It made her very happy.

More About This Project

Languages have long been a passion of mine. I grew up hearing German being spoken whenever we visited relatives, but nobody bothered to teach me German. This led to an insatiable hunger to learn other languages. Eventually, I was able to start to learn other languages, but as a general rule, since I don't have a native speaker to practice with, I end up learning to read and not much else. I currently read 15 languages.

I have over 140 languages on my family web site. This Bible verse and others can be accessed in one of these languages, here: Seghea Bible Verses in Many Languages

On my site, I do a lot of VISUAL indexing because many of my visitors do not read English. I have a visual index that leads to pages where there is art work, which can be enjoyed by all, and to pages that have links in other languages, on various topics. On the page above, I used the images of national flags to help people locate their own language. I have not seen a visual index on any other web site. You can find my visual index to things people can enjoy in other languages: Seghea. I am not particularly a supporter of the United Nations, but the flag has a universally understood meaning, so I use it in that context.

Before getting into the alphabet, I want to mention some things. First, I give the name of the language either in English, or in that language, so if you don't find it under one, look under the other.

Fonts are often a problem, particularly since the world hasn't totally shifted to the new standard Unicode yet, and when I first did pages in Korean, for example, it was before the change. In such cases, I will present images. On my web site, I was often able to overcome this problem by specifying a character set, but as the changes are taking place, some of the pages are broken. :( As I have the time, I'm fixing the problem.

In a few places in this Lens, I have had to use a Roman transliteration because I don't have anything else. I apologize for this, and will replace them when I find the original.

As time permits, I will also be adding photos of folk art from the region where the language is spoken.

Thank you to the Summer Institute of Linguistics in Catalina, Arizona, for their generous support, particularly in giving me access to print Bibles in many languages. Thank you also to Roger Doriot, missionary to Irian Jaya, and Wolfgang Kuhl of Germany for supplying some Bible verses.

I have many more languages to add, so if you don't see the one you want, please come back soon.


This material has been compiled from a number of different sources. All of the sources are listed in the Links List. In many cases, the verse or verses were hand copied from actual copies of the Bible. Some of these were placed in a context of a number of other verses, on web pages.

There are other pages with collections of John 3:16 (all listed below). This collection will undoubtedly be the most complete collection on the internet, when all of the languages I have are added.

When I have time, I will add some short descriptions that show the difficulties that Bible translators have, when trying to translate a verse in such a way that it MEANS the same thing as it does to English-speakers. Here is just one example of many that I hope to add. When trying to translate a verse that says our sins will be white as snow, what do you do in a country where the inhabitants have never seen snow? You look for a word that means something white, and purity. Often a problem is much more complex than that.

About the Folk Art

As time permits, I will be adding folk art from the region where a particular language is spoken.

About the dragons: there are dragon myths from all over the world. Some cultures have pursued dragons as sculpture and other visual arts. There are those who hold (I am one of them) that the dragons are representations of dinosaurs that the people used to see, and that the images are passed down through the generations in stylized form, something like oral tradition, until the present day.

The sculpture of the bird was carved from ironwood, one of the hardest woods known. The Seris carve many different figures and sell them for a living. How they do it is a total mystery to me.

All photos, except the one of the Bird of Paradise from Iriyan Jaya, are mine. That photo was taken by Roger Doriot, and is used with permission.

Copyright for the Bible passages belongs to God, with some secondary copyright holders. Using a single verse from a Bible translation is permitted under all applicable laws. This applies also to images of verses.

Letter T


Sapagka't gayon inibig ng Diyos ang sanlibutan, na ipinagkaloob niya ang kaniyang bugtong na isinilang na Anak, upang ang sinumang sumampalataya sa kaniya ay hindi dapat mapahamak, kundi magkaroon ng walang-hanggang buhay.

Gayon na lamang ang pag-ibig ng Diyos sa sanlibutan, kaya ibinigay niya ang kanyang bugtong na Anak, upang ang sumampalataya sa kanya ay hindi mapahamak, kundi magkaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan. Sapagkat sinugo ng Diyos ang kanyang Anak, hindi upang hatalang maparusahan ang sanlibutan, kundi upang iligtas ito sa pamamagitan niya.

Tagalog (Filipino):
