Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
4 through the Word was life, and the life was the light for all people. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness doesn't extinguish the light. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
6 A man named John 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 concerning the light, so that through him everyone would believe in the light. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.
8 He himself wasn't the light, but his mission was to testify concerning the light. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that shines on all people was coming into the world. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
10 The light was in the world, and the world came into being through the light, but the world didn't recognize the light. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
11 The light came to his own people, and his own people didn't welcome him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 But those who did welcome him, those who believed in his name, he authorized to become God's children, 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--
13 born not from blood nor from human desire or passion, but born from 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 made his home among us. We have seen his glory, glory like that of a father's only son, 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.
