|Kara na kara Kigambo akaba aroho, Kigambo akaba ali hamu na Ruhanga kandi Kigambo akaba ali Ruhanga. Okurugirra kimu ha kubanza akaba ali hamu na Ruhanga. Ebintu byona bikahangwa nibiraba omuli uwe, kandi uwe haatali busaho kintu kyona ekyahangirwe. Omuli uwe obwomeezi numwo bukaba buli, kandi obwomeezi obu nugwo gwali musana gw'abantu. Omusana ogu gujwera omu mwirima, kandi omwirima tigukaguraazaaga. Hakaba karoho omuntu ayatumirwe Ruhanga, ibara lye nuwe Yohaana. Ogu akaija kuba kaiso ow'okumanyisa eby'omusana, abantu boona nukwo baikirize habwe. Uwe akaba atali musana, baitu akaija kuba kaiso w'eby'omusana.||In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.|
