Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
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 hasn't overcome it. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
6 There came a man, sent from God, whose name was Yochanan. 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
7 The same came as a witness, that he might testify 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 was sent that he might testify about the light. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that enlightens 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 made through him, and the world didn't 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 those who were his own didn't receive him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God's children, 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, nor of the will of the flesh, nor 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 lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of 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.
