19 And this is the judgment: light comes into the cosmos, and men love darkness rather than light because their works are evil. 20 For everyone doing evil hates the light; and comes not to the light lest his works be reproved: 21 but whoever does truth comes to the light, to manifest that his works are worked in Elohim.
