Loving the Light: the Lovers, the Haters, Life and Death
The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this:
the Light has come into the world,
and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light,
for their works (deeds) were evil.
For every wrongdoer hates (loathes, detests) the Light,
and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it,
lest his works (his deeds, his activities, his conduct) be exposed and reproved.
But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light;
so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are—
wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him].
