John 3:16-17

For God so loved the world that he gave[a] his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn[b] the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

About the NAB

The New American Bible is the first complete American Catholic Bible that was translated from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages. Every edition includes the Apocryphal books. It was translated by a team of 55 scholars, including some Protestants, with the focus being on a word-for-word translation that also reads well. Since 2002, the NAB is the only English Bible that can be used at Mass in dioceses of the United States.
