New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and 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 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 about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, 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 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 When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, "Here is truly an Israelite 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 asked him, "Where did you get to know me?" Jesus answered, "I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called 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 replied, "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, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? 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, "Very truly, I tell 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."
