Some of the people therefore, when they heard these words, were saying, "This certainly is the Prophet."
When the crowds heard him say this, some of them declared, "This man surely is the Prophet."
Those in the crowd who heard these words were saying, "This has to be the Prophet."
When these words came to their ears, some of the people said, This is certainly the prophet.
When they heard these words, some in the crowd said, "This is really the prophet."
Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet."
