1 G1722 And in G1161 G3588 G2250 those days G1565 G3854 came G* John G3588 the G910 Baptist, G2784 proclaiming G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness G3588 G* of Judea,
2 G2532 and G3004 saying, G3340 Repent! G1448 [6approaches G1063 1for G3588 2the G932 3kingdom G3588 4of the G3772 5heavens].
3 G3778 For this G1063 G1510.2.3 is G3588 the thing G4483 having been spoken G5259 by G* Isaiah G3588 the G4396 prophet, G3004 saying, G5456 A voice G994 yelling G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness; G2090 Prepare G3588 the G3598 way G2962 of the Lord! G2117 [2straight G4160 1Make] G3588 G5147 his roads! G1473
4 G1473 And he, G1161 G3588 G* John, G2192 had G3588 G1742 his garment G1473 G575 from G2359 [2hair G2574 1camel's], G2532 and G2223 a belt G1193 made of skin G4012 around G3588 G3751 his loin. G1473 G3588 G1161 And G5160 his nourishment G1473 G1510.7.3 was G200 locusts G2532 and G3192 [2honey G66 1wild].
5 G5119 Then G1607 came forth G4314 to G1473 him G* Jerusalem, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 G* Judea, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G4066 place round about G3588 the G* Jordan.
6 G2532 And G907 they were immersed G1722 in G3588 the G* Jordan G5259 by G1473 him, G1843 acknowledging G3588 G266 their sins. G1473
7 G1492 And beholding G1161 G4183 many G3588 of the G* Pharisees G2532 and G* Sadducees G2064 coming G1909 upon G3588 G908 his immersion, G1473 G2036 he said G1473 to them, G1081 Offspring G2191 of vipers, G5100 who G5263 showed plainly G1473 to you G5343 to flee G575 from G3588 the G3195 about to come G3709 anger?
9 G2532 For G3361 you should not G1380 seem G3004 to say G1722 in G1438 yourselves, G3962 [2father G2192 1We have] G3588 G* Abraham. G3004 For I say G1063 G1473 to you, G3754 that G1410 God is able G3588 G2316 G1537 [4from out of G3588 G3037 5these stones G3778 G1453 1to raise up G5043 2children G3588 G* 3to Abraham].
10 G2235 And already G1161 G2532 even G3588 the G513 axe G4314 to G3588 the G4491 root G3588 of the G1186 trees G2749 is situated. G3956 For every G3767 G1186 tree G3361 not G4160 producing G2590 [2fruit G2570 1good], G1581 is cut down G2532 and G1519 [2into G4442 3fire G906 1thrown].
11 G1473 Forasmuch as I G3303 G907 immerse G1473 you G1722 in G5204 water G1519 for G3341 repentance, G3588 the one G1161 G3694 [2after G1473 3me G2064 1coming G2478 5stronger than G1473 6me G1510.2.3 4is]; G3739 of whom G3756 I am not G1510.2.1 G2425 fit G3588 [2the G5266 3sandals G941 1to bear]. G1473 He G1473 shall immerse you G907 G1722 in G4151 [2spirit G39 1holy] G2532 and G4442 fire --
12 G3739 of which G3588 the G4425 winnowing fan G1722 is in G3588 G5495 his hand, G1473 G2532 and G1245 he shall thoroughly cleanse G3588 G257 his threshing-floor, G1473 G2532 and G4863 shall gather together G3588 G4621 his grain G1473 G1519 into G3588 the G596 storehouse; G3588 but the G1161 G892 straw G2618 he shall incinerate G4442 [2fire G762 1by inextinguishable].
13 G5119 Then G3854 comes G3588 G* Jesus G575 from G3588 G* Galilee G1909 unto G3588 the G* Jordan G4314 to G3588 G* John, G3588 G907 to be immersed G5259 by G1473 him.
14 G3588 G1161 And G* John G1254 restrains G1473 him, G3004 saying, G1473 I G5532 [2need G2192 1have G5259 4by G1473 5you G907 3to be immersed], G2532 and G1473 you G2064 come G4314 to G1473 me?
15 G611 And answering G1161 G3588 G* Jesus G2036 said G4314 to G1473 him, G863 Allow it G737 just now! G3779 for to this G1063 G4241 it is becoming G1510.2.3 G1473 to us G4137 to fulfill G3956 all G1343 righteousness. G5119 Then G863 he allows G1473 him.
16 G2532 And G907 Jesus having been immersed, G3588 G* G305 ascended G2117.1 straightway G575 from G3588 the G5204 water. G2532 And G2400 behold, G455 [3were opened G1473 4to him G3588 1the G3772 2heavens], G2532 and G1492 he beheld G3588 the G4151 spirit G3588 G2316 of God G2597 coming down G5616 as G4058 a dove, G2532 and G2064 coming G1909 upon G1473 him.
