John 1:42 King James Version (KJV)

42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

John 1:42 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

42 and he brought Simon to Jesus.

When Jesus saw him, He said, “You are Simon, son of John.[a] You will be called Cephas” (which means “Rock”).


  1. John 1:42 Other mss read Simon, son of Jonah

John 1:42 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

42 Then he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John;[a] you will be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).


  1. 1:42 Simon, the son of John: in Mt 16:17, Simon is called Bariōna, “son of Jonah,” a different tradition for the name of Simon’s father. Cephas: in Aramaic = the Rock; cf. Mt 16:18. Neither the Greek equivalent Petros nor, with one isolated exception, Cephas is attested as a personal name before Christian times.
