John 1:13-15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor yet of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the 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 truth. 15 John bore witness of him and cried out, saying, This was he of whom I spoke, who, though he came after me, went before me, because he was before me.
