1 Timothy 3:16

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

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.
New King James Version

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.
New American Standard Bible

And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who (God) was revealed in the flesh, was vindicated (justified) in the Spirit, beheld by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
New International Version

Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He (or, God) appeared in a body (or, in the flesh), was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
The Amplified Bible

And great and important and weighty, we confess, is the hidden truth (the mystic secret) of godliness. He [God] was made visible in human flesh, justified and vindicated in the [Holy] Spirit, was seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, [and] taken up in glory.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness; who [Christ Jesus, v. 13] was made visible in the sphere of flesh [His humanity], vindicated in the sphere of spirit [as to His deity], seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
Phillips’ Modern English

No one would deny that this religion of ours is a tremendous mystery, resting as it does on the One who appeared in human flesh, was vindicated in the spirit, seen by angels; proclaimed among the nations, believed in throughout the world, taken back to Heaven in glory.
Williams’ Language of the People

Undoubtedly the mystery of our religion is a great wonder: “He was made visible in human form, He was vindicated by the Spirit, He was seen by angels, He was proclaimed among the heathen, He was trusted in throughout the world, He was taken up to glory.”
