Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning. 2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 Life was in Him, and that life was the light of men. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
5 That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
6 There was a man named John who was sent from God. 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.
8 He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was created through Him, yet the world did not recognize Him. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
11 He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 But to all who did receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in His name, 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--
13 who were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God. 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning Him and exclaimed, "This was the One of whom I said, 'The One coming after me has surpassed me, because He existed before me.' ") 15 John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' "
16 Indeed, we have all received grace after grace from His fullness, 16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.
17 for although the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
18 No one has ever seen God. The One and Only Son- the One who is at the Father's side- He has revealed Him. 18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known.
