A man was sent from God, to whom the name was John.
This man came into witnessing, that he should bear witnessing of the light, that all men should believe by him.
He was not that light, but that he should bear witnessing of the light.
There was a very light, which lighteneth each man that cometh into this world [that lighteth each man coming into this world].
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
He came into his own things, and his received him not.
But how many ever received him, he gave to them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name;
the which not of bloods [which not of bloods], neither of the will of flesh, neither of the will of man, but be born of God.
And the word was made man, and dwelled among us, and we have seen the glory of him, as the glory of the one begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and of truth. [And the word, that is, God's Son, is made flesh, or man, and hath dwelled in us, and we have seen the glory of him, the glory as of the one begotten of the Father, the Son full of grace and truth.]
John beareth witnessing of him, and crieth, and saith, This is he of whom I said, He that shall come after me, is made before me [saying, This it was, whom I said, He that cometh after me, is made before me], for he was before me;
and of the plenty of him we all have taken, and grace for grace.
