New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
40 When the crowds heard him say this, some of them declared, "This man surely is the Prophet." 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet."
41 Others said, "He is the Messiah." Still others said, "But he can't be! Will the Messiah come from Galilee? 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee?
42 For the Scriptures clearly state that the Messiah will be born of the royal line of David, in Bethlehem, the village where King David was born." 42 Does not the Scripture say that the Christ will come from David's family and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?"
