John 1:14-18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

14 The Word became flesh[a]
and took up residence[b] among us.
We observed His glory,
the glory as the One and Only Son[c] from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning Him and exclaimed,
“This was the One of whom I said,
‘The One coming after me has surpassed me,
because He existed before me.’”)
16 Indeed, we have all received grace after grace
from His fullness,
17 for the law was given through Moses,
grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
18 No one has ever seen God.[d]
The One and Only Son[e]
the One who is at the Father’s side[f]
He has revealed Him.
