This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
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. [Isa. 5:20.](AMP)
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
