John 3:20-21

New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)

20 Everyone who does ‘evil’ [bliya’al: worthless(-ness), ung-dly (to be unlike YHWH ‘elohiym), etc.] deeds ‘hates’ [satam: persecute(s), (is personally against), etc..] the ‘light’ [nhiyr: illumination, wisdom, etc..]. They will not come into the ‘light’ [nhiyr: illumination, wisdom, etc..]. They are afraid that what they do will be seen. 21 But anyone who lives by the truth comes into the ‘light’ [nhiyr: illumination, wisdom, etc..]. They live by the truth with ‘God’s’ [YHWH ‘Elohiym’s] help. They come into the ‘light’ [nhiyr: illumination, wisdom, etc..] so that it will be easy to see their good deeds.’

Paraphrasing ‘YH’shua’ (YH’s salvation), ” ‘Your will’ (YHWH ‘Elohiym’s Word and Works) be done ‘on earth’ (IN US) as it is in heaven.”

More on the Name of Israel’s ‘Elohiym:

YHWH (YH): “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”,[3] an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h),[4] with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14[ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel, YHWH] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh),I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”[5](in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).[6][7][8]
