Et habitavit in nobis
et vidimus gloriam ejus [or cuius gloriam vidimus]

plenum gratiae et veritatis.

1:14  And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
full of grace and truth. (KJV)

1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
full of grace and truth,
of whose fullness we have all received,
and grace for grace, Alleluia

1:14  Az Ige testté lett
és miköztünk lakozott
és mi láttuk dicsőségét
mint az Atya egyszülöttjének dicsőségét
telve kegyelemmel és igazsággal.

1:14  Das Wort ist Fleisch geworden
und wohnte unter uns,
und wir sahen seine Herrlichkeit,
eine Herrlichkeit gleich der des einzigen Sohnes des Vaters,
voller Gnade und Wahrheit.
