1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was at God, and God was the word. In the beginning was that word, and that word was with god: and god was that word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and that Word was God. In the beginning was the Word, & the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

1:3 All things were made by him, and without him was made nought, that thing that was made. All things were made by it, and without it, was made nothing, that made was. All things were made by it, & without it was made nothing that was made. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

1:5 and the light shineth in darknesses, and the darknesses comprehended not it. And the light shineth in the darkness, and darkness comprehended it not. And the light shineth in the darkness, & the darkness comprehended it not. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.

1:9 There was a very light, that lighteth each man coming into this world. That was a true light, which lighteneth all men that come into the world. That was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. That was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He was in the world, and the world by him was made: and the world knew him not.

1:12 But how many ever received him, he gave to them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name; unto as many as received him, gave he power to be the sons of god: in that they believed on his name: But as many as received him, to them he gave power to be the sons of God, even to them that believe in his Name, But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his Name:
1:13 which not of bloods, neither of the will of flesh, neither of the will of man, but be born of God. which were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh, nor yet of the will of men: but of god. Which are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14 And the word is made flesh, and hath dwelled in us, and we have seen the glory of him, the glory as of the one begotten of the Father, the Son full of grace and truth. And that word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw the glory of it, as the glory of the only begotten son of the father, which word was full of grace, and verity. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw the glory thereof, as the glory of the only begotten Son of the Father) full of grace and truth.

1:18 No man ever saw God, but the one begotten Son, that is in the bosom of the Father, he hath told out. No man saw god at any time. The only begotten son, which is in the father’s bosom, hath declared him. No man hath seen God at any time: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. No man hath seen God at any time: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
