New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
35 Again the next day John was standing with two of his disciples, 35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples.
36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God !" 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"
37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.
38 And Jesus turned and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek ?" They said to Him, "Rabbi (which translated means 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 said to them, "Come, and you will see." So they came and saw where He was staying ; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. 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 who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus.
41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah " (which translated means 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 brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon the son of John ; you shall 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 He purposed to go into Galilee, and He found Philip. And Jesus said to him, "Follow Me." 43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, "Follow me."
44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city 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 Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote -Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." 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 said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth ?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." 46 "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?" Nathanael asked. "Come and see," said Philip.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, 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 said to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 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 answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God ; 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 and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe ? 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 And He said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man." 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."
