John 1:29-34

NIRV 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him. John said, "Look! The Lamb of God! He takes away the sin of the world! NIV 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! NIRV 30 This is the One I was talking about. I said, 'A man who comes after me is more important than I am. That's because he existed before I was born.' NIV 30 This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' NIRV 31 I did not know him. But God wants to make it clear to Israel who this person is. That's the reason I came baptizing with water." NIV 31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel." NIRV 32 Then John told them, "I saw the Holy Spirit come down from heaven like a dove. The Spirit remained on Jesus. NIV 32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. NIRV 33 I would not have known him. But the One who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'You will see the Spirit come down and remain on someone. He is the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.' NIV 33 I would not have known him, except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.' NIRV 34 I have seen it happen. I give witness that this is the Son of God." NIV 34 I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God."
