14 And (A)the Word (B)became flesh and (C)dwelt among us, (D)and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[a] from the Father, full of (E)grace and (F)truth. 15 ((G)John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, (H)‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 For from (I)his fullness we have all received, (J)grace upon grace.[b] 17 For (K)the law was given through Moses; (L)grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 (M)No one has ever seen God; (N)the only God,[c] who is at the Father's side,[d] (O)he has made him known.
