14  Sicut Moses exaltavit serpentem in deserto,
ita exaltari oportet filium hominis
15  Ut omnis qui credit in eum, non pereat
sed habeat vitam aeternam.

14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must that Son of man be lifted up
15  That whosoever believeth in him
should not perish but have eternal life.

(trans. Geneva Bible)

14  Comme Moses a enlevé le serpent dans le desert,
il faut enlever le fils de l'homme
15  Afin que tous ce qui croient en lui
ne perissent pas et aient la vie éternelle.
