1 Timothy 3:16

English Standard Version

16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He[1] was manifested in the flesh, vindicated[2] by the Spirit,[3] seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. (Lu 2:13; Lu 24:4; Joh 1:14; Ac 1:2; Ga 2:2; 2Th 1:10; 1Pe 1:20)

New International Version

16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit,[1] was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.

New International Reader’s Version

16 There is no doubt that true godliness comes from this great mystery. Jesus came as a human being. The Holy Spirit proved that he was the Son of God. He was seen by angels. He was preached among the nations. People in the world believed in him. He was taken up to heaven in glory.

King James Version

16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
