5And the lightshinethindarkness;and the darknesscomprehendedaitnot.6
There was a mansentfromGod,whosename was John.7
The samecamefor a witness,to bear witnessof the Light,thatall men throughhim might believe .
He wasnotthatLight,but was sent to bear witnessof that Light.9
That was the trueLight,whichlighteth every manthatcomethinto the world.10
He wasin the world,and the world was madebyhim,and the worldknewhimnot.11
He cameunto his own,and his ownreceivedhimnot.12But as many asreceivedhim, to them gave hepowerb to become the sons of God, even to them that believeonhisname:13Which were born , notofblood,norof the will of the flesh,norof the will of man,butofGod.14And the Word was madeflesh,anddweltamongus, (and we beheldhisglory, the gloryas of the only begottenof the Father,) full of graceandtruth.15John bare witnessofhim,andcried , saying , This was he of whom I spake , He that comethafterme is preferredbeforeme:for he wasbeforeme.
