Insert value of object into span tag

I have an object:

message: {
text: Here is some text
}


I want to insert it into a span tag like this:

<span>message.text</span>


This won't print 'Here is some text', instead it will just show 'message.text' on the webpage. How can I get it to show the actual contents of the object?

Answer

Give something id to span

<span id="span"></span>
$("#span").text(message.text);
