For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, andwill call him Immanuel.
