Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
35 The next day John was standing again with two of his disciples. 35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples.
36 When he saw Jesus walking along he said, "Look! The Lamb of God!" 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"
37 The two disciples heard what he said, and they followed Jesus. 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.
38 When Jesus turned and saw them following, he asked, "What are you looking for?" They said, "Rabbi (which is translated Teacher), where are you staying?" 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
39 He replied, "Come and see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. 39 "Come," he replied, "and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.
40 One of the two disciples who heard what John said and followed Jesus was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus.
41 He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Christ ). 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ).
42 He led him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which, when translated, is Peter ).
43 The next day Jesus wanted to go into Galilee, and he found Philip. Jesus said to him, 43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, "Follow me."
44 "Follow me."Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.
45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law and the Prophets: Jesus, Joseph's son, from Nazareth." 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
46 Nathanael responded, "Can anything from Nazareth be good?" Philip said, "Come and see." 46 "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?" Nathanael asked. "Come and see," said Philip.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said about him, "Here is a genuine Israelite in whom there is no deceit." 47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, "Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false."
48 Nathanael asked him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered, "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree." 48 "How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you."
49 Nathanael replied, "Rabbi, you are God's Son. You are the king of Israel." 49 Then Nathanael declared, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
50 Jesus answered, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these! 50 Jesus said, "You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that."
51 I assure you that you will see heaven open and God's angels going up to heaven and down to earth on the Human One." 51 He then added, "I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
