Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. And 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 Beth-sa'ida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.
45 Philip found Nathan'a-el, and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, 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 Nathan'a-el 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 Nathan'a-el coming to him, and said 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 Nathan'a-el said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered 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 Nathan'a-el 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 him, "Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall 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 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."
