John

Chap. 1



1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God. 
*He* was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 
All things received being through him, and without him not one thing received being which has received being.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 
And the light appears in darkness, and the darkness apprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 
There was a man sent from God, his name John.

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 
He came for witness, that he might witness concerning the light, that all might believe through him.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 
*He* was not the light, but that he might witness concerning the light.

9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 
The true light was that which, coming into the world, lightens every man.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 
He was in the world, and the world had its being through him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 
He came to his own, and his own received him not;

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 
but as many as received him, to them gave he the right to be children of God, to those that believe on his name;

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 
who have been born, not of blood, nor of flesh's will, nor of man's will, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we have contemplated his glory, a glory as of an only-begotten with a father), full of grace and truth;

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 
(John bears witness of him, and he has cried, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me;)

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 
for of his fulness we all have received, and grace upon grace.

17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 
For the law was given by Moses: grace and truth subsists through Jesus Christ.

18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. 
No one has seen God at any time; the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, *he* hath declared him .

19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? 
And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites that they might ask him, Thou, who art thou?

20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 
And he acknowledged and denied not, and acknowledged, I am not the Christ.

21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. 
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he says, I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No.

22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 
They said therefore to him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to those who sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. 
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the path of the Lord, as said Esaias the prophet.

24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 
And they were sent from among the Pharisees.

25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 
And they asked him and said to him, Why baptisest thou then, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elias, nor the prophet?

26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 
John answered them saying, I baptise with water. In the midst of you stands, whom ye do not know,

27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 
he who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to unloose.

28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 
These things took place in Bethany, across the Jordan, where John was baptising.

29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 
On the morrow he sees Jesus coming to him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.

30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 
He it is of whom I said, A man comes after me who takes a place before me, because he *was* before me;

31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 
and I knew him not; but that he might be manifested to Israel, therefore have I come baptising with water.

32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 
And John bore witness, saying, I beheld the Spirit descending as a dove from heaven, and it abode upon him.

33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 
And I knew him not; but he who sent me to baptise with water, *he* said to me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending and abiding on him, he it is who baptises with the Holy Spirit.

34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. 
And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of God.

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; 
Again, on the morrow, there stood John and two of his disciples.

36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! 
And, looking at Jesus as he walked, he says, Behold the Lamb of God.

37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 
And the two disciples heard him speaking, and followed Jesus.

38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? 
But Jesus having turned, and seeing them following, says to them, What seek ye? And *they* said to him, Rabbi (which, being interpreted, signifies Teacher), where abidest thou?

39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. 
He says to them, Come and see. They went therefore, and saw where he abode; and they abode with him that day. It was about the tenth hour.

40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard this from John and followed him.

41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. 
He first finds his own brother Simon, and says to him, We have found the Messias (which being interpreted is Christ).

42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone. 
And he led him to Jesus. Jesus looking at him said, Thou art Simon, the son of Jonas; thou shalt be called Cephas (which interpreted is stone).

43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 
On the morrow he would go forth into Galilee, and Jesus finds Philip, and says to him, Follow me.

44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 
And Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.

45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 
Philip finds Nathanael, and says to him, We have found him of whom Moses wrote in the law, and the prophets, Jesus, the son of Joseph, who is from Nazareth.

46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. 
And Nathanael said to him, Can anything good come out of Nazareth? Philip says to him, Come and see.

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and says of him, Behold one truly an Israelite, in whom there is no guile.

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 
Nathanael says to him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig-tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 
Nathanael answered and said to him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the King of Israel.

50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 
Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, believest thou? Thou shalt see greater things than these.

51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. 
And he says to him, Verily, verily, I say to you, Henceforth ye shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of man.
