This translation was made with only one idea in mind – to make the message of this book understood by all people who read and listen to its message in the English language. Westcott and Hort, with occasional references to Nestle’s, is the Greek text used. References have been made to the United Bible Society Text since it has been published. The translator was Don Klingensmith.
The text is in prose form, using paragraphs instead of verses. There are no verse numbers, except at the top of each page.
John 1: 1 – 3

And the Logos was with God.
And God was the Logos.
This one was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him and without him was not one thing made.
