12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

Read John 1:12 Using Other Translations

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
