||In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God; |
||The same was in the beginning with God.
||this one was in the beginning with God; |
||All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
||all things through him did happen, and without him happened not even one thing that hath happened. |
||In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
||In him was life, and the life was the light of men, |

||He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
||that one was not the Light, but -- that he might testify about the Light. |
||That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
||He was the true Light, which doth enlighten every man, coming to the world; |
||He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
||in the world he was, and the world through him was made, and the world did not know him: |
||He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
||to his own things he came, and his own people did not receive him; |
||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 did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God -- to those believing in his name, |
||Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
||who -- not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but -- of God were begotten. |

||And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
||and out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace; |
