Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
43 On the next day he wanted to depart for 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, the town 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] whom Moses wrote [about] in the law, and the prophets wrote [about]--Jesus son of Joseph 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 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good 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 toward him and said about him, "Look! {A true Israelite} in whom 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, "From where 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 all of you, you will see heaven opened 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."
