English Standard Version (ESV) 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 in the beginning with God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, 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 came to bear witness about the light. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
