John 1:1-5Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Prologue

In the beginning was the Word,[a]
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
All things were created through Him,
and apart from Him not one thing was created
that has been created.
Life was in Him,[b]
and that life was the light of men.
That light shines in the darkness,
yet the darkness did not overcome[c] it.
