In thoseG1565 daysG2250 cameG3854 JohnG2491 the Baptist,G910 preachingG2784 in the wildernessG2048 of Judaea,G2449
And saying,G3004 RepentG3340 you: for the kingdomG932 of heavenG3772 is atG1448 hand.G1448
For thisG3778 is he that was spokenG4483 of by the prophetG4396 Esaias,G2268 saying,G3004 The voiceG5456 of one cryingG994 in the wilderness,G2048 PrepareG2090 you the wayG3598 of the Lord,G2962 makeG4160 his pathsG5147 straight.G2117
And the sameG846 JohnG2491 hadG2192 his raimentG1742 of camel'sG2574 hair,G2359 and a leatherG1193 girdleG2223 aboutG4012 his loins;G3751 and his meatG5160 was locustsG200 and wildG66 honey.G3192
ThenG5119 wentG1607 out to him Jerusalem,G2414 and allG3956 Judaea,G2449 and allG3956 the regionG4066 roundG4066 aboutG4066 Jordan,G2446
And were baptizedG907 of him in Jordan,G2446 confessingG1843 their sins.G266
But when he sawG1492 manyG4183 of the PhariseesG5330 and SadduceesG4523 comeG2064 to his baptism,G908 he saidG2036 to them, O generationG1081 of vipers,G2191 whoG5101 has warnedG5263 you to fleeG5343 from the wrathG3709 to come?G3195
BringG4160 forthG4160 thereforeG3767 fruitsG2590 meetG514 for repentance:G3341
And thinkG1380 not to sayG3004 withinG1722 yourselves,G1438 We haveG2192 AbrahamG11 to our father:G3962 for I sayG3004 to you, that GodG2316 is ableG1410 of theseG5130 stonesG3037 to raiseG1453 up childrenG5043 to Abraham.G11
And nowG2235 alsoG2532 the axG513 is laidG2749 to the rootG4491 of the trees:G1186 thereforeG3767 everyG3956 treeG1186 which bringsG4160 not forthG4160 goodG2570 fruitG2590 is hewnG1581 down,G1581 and castG906 intoG1519 the fire.G4442
I indeedG3303 baptizeG907 you with waterG5204 to repentance.G3341 but he that comesG2064 afterG3694 me is mightierG2478 than I, whoseG3739 shoesG5266 I amG1510 not worthyG2425 to bear:G941 he shall baptizeG907 you with the HolyG40 Ghost,G4151 and with fire:G4442
WhoseG3739 fanG4425 is in his hand,G5495 and he will thoroughlyG1245 purgeG1245 his floor,G257 and gatherG4863 his wheatG4621 intoG1519 the garner;G596 but he will burnG2618 up the chaffG892 with unquenchableG762 fire.G4442
ThenG5119 comesG3854 JesusG2424 from GalileeG1056 to JordanG2446 to John,G2491 to be baptizedG907 of him.
But JohnG2491 forbadeG1254 him, saying,G3004 I haveG2192 needG5532 to be baptizedG907 of you, and comeG2064 you to me?
And JesusG2424 answeringG611 saidG2036 to him, SufferG863 it to be so now:G737 for thusG3779 it becomesG4241 us to fulfillG4137 allG3956 righteousness.G1343 ThenG5119 he sufferedG863 him.
And Jesus,G2424 when he was baptized,G907 wentG305 up straightwayG2117 out of the water:G5204 and, see,G2400 the heavensG3772 were openedG455 to him, and he sawG1492 the SpiritG4151 of GodG2316 descendingG2597 likeG5616 a dove,G4058 and lightingG2064 on him:
And seeG2400 a voiceG5456 from heaven,G3772 saying,G3004 ThisG3778 is my belovedG27 Son,G5207 in whomG3739 I am wellG2106 pleased.G2106
