New International Version
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
King James Bible
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Darby Bible Translation
He that believes on him is not judged: but he that believes not has been already judged, because he has not believed on the name of the only-begotten Son of God.

John 3:18 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that believeth - As stated before on John 3:16.
Is not condemned - For past sin, that being forgiven on his believing in Christ.
But he that believeth not - When the Gospel is preached to him, and the way of salvation made plain.
Is condemned already - Continues under the condemnation which Divine justice has passed upon all sinners; and has this superadded, He hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God, and therefore is guilty of the grossest insult to the Divine majesty, in neglecting, slighting, and despising the salvation which the infinite mercy of God had provided for him.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
1 John 3:23
And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.
