In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God;
this one was in the beginning with God;
all things through him did happen, and without him happened not even one thing that hath happened.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men,
and the light in the darkness did shine, and the darkness did not perceive it.
There came a man -- having been sent from God -- whose name [is] John,
this one came for testimony, that he might testify about the Light, that all might believe through him;
that one was not the Light, but -- that he might testify about the Light.
He was the true Light, which doth enlighten every man, coming to the world;
in the world he was, and the world through him was made, and the world did not know him:
to his own things he came, and his own people did not receive him;
but as many as did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God -- to those believing in his name,
who -- not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but -- of God were begotten.
And the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth.
John doth testify concerning him, and hath cried, saying, `This was he of whom I said, He who after me is coming, hath come before me, for he was before me;'
and out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace;
for the law through Moses was given, the grace and the truth through Jesus Christ did come;
God no one hath ever seen; the only begotten Son, who is on the bosom of the Father -- he did declare.
