[14] καθω̣ς̣ μ̣ωυσης υψωσεν τον οφιν ε̣ν̣ τη ερη̣μω ουτως υψωθηναι δει τον υιον του ανθ̣ρ̣ω̣πο̣υ̣ [15] ι̣ν̣[α] π̣α̣ς̣ ο̣ π̣[ιστευ]ω̣ν̣ ε̣ι̣ς̣ α̣υτον μ̣η απολη̣[τα]ι̣ α̣λ̣λ̣ εχ̣η̣ ζωην αιωνιον

[16] ουτως γαρ ηγ̣απ̣η̣σεν ο θεο̣ς τον κοσμον ωσ̣τ̣[ε] τ̣ο̣ν υιο̣ν αυτου τον̣ μ̣ο̣ν̣[ο]γ̣ε̣ν̣η̣ εδωκεν εις τον̣ [κοσμ]ον ι̣να̣ ο̣ π̣ιστευων εις [αυ]τ̣ο̣ν̣ μ̣η αποληται α̣λ̣λ εχ̣η̣ ζω̣[ην] α̣ιωνιον [17] ο̣υ̣ γ̣α̣ρ̣ [α]π̣[εσ]τ̣[ειλε]ν̣ ο̣ θ̣εος τ̣ον υιον̣ αυτ̣ου εις το̣[ν] [κ]ο̣σμ[ον] αλλ ινα σ̣ωθ̣η̣ [ο] κοσ̣μ̣ο̣ς̣ δ̣ι αυτου [18] ο πιστ̣ε̣υ̣ων εις αυ̣τον ου̣ κρινετ̣α̣ι̣ ο δ̣ε μη πιστευων ηδ̣η και κ̣ρ̣[ι]νεται̣ οτι μη πε̣πιστ̣[ε]υ̣κεν ε̣ις το ονομα το̣υ̣ μονογενου̣ς̣ υιου του θυ̅
