King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto 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 of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write , 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 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto 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 saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, "Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false."
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 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 and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art 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 unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou ? thou shalt 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 saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open , and the angels of God ascending and descending upon 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."
