John 1:1-18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 In the beginning[b] was the Word,
6 [e]A man named John was sent from God. 7 He came for testimony,[f] to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. 9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world,
12 But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, 13 [h]who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh[i]
15 [j]John testified to him and cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’” 16 From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace,[k] 17 because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God. The only Son, God,[l] who is at the Father’s side, has revealed him.
