“I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
(a) Repent. To repent means to change your mind. In context, it means putting your faith in Jesus (John 3:15). God is not willing that any perish but all come to repentance (2 Pet. 3:9). See entry for Repentance.
(b) Perish. Those who reject the author of life have no lasting life in them (John 3:16).
