1 G1565 In those G2250 days G3854 came G2491 John G910 the Baptist, G2784 preaching G2048 in the wilderness G2449 of Judaea,
3 G3778 For this G4483 is he that was spoken G4396 of by the prophet G2268 Esaias, G3004 saying, G5456 The voice G994 of one crying G2048 in the wilderness, G2090 Prepare G3598 you the way G2962 of the Lord, G4160 make G5147 his paths G2117 straight.
4 G846 And the same G2491 John G2192 had G1742 his raiment G2574 of camel’s G2359 hair, G1193 and a leather G2223 girdle G4012 about G3751 his loins; G5160 and his meat G200 was locusts G66 and wild G3192 honey.
5 G5119 Then G1607 went G2414 out to him Jerusalem, G3956 and all G2449 Judaea, G3956 and all G4066 the region G4066 round G4066 about G2446 Jordan,
7 G1492 But when he saw G4183 many G5330 of the Pharisees G4523 and Sadducees G2064 come G908 to his baptism, G2036 he said G1081 to them, O generation G2191 of vipers, G5101 who G5263 has warned G5343 you to flee G3709 from the wrath G3195 to come?
9 G1380 And think G3004 not to say G1722 within G1438 yourselves, G2192 We have G11 Abraham G3962 to our father: G3004 for I say G2316 to you, that God G1410 is able G5130 of these G3037 stones G1453 to raise G5043 up children G11 to Abraham.
10 G2235 And now G2532 also G513 the ax G2749 is laid G4491 to the root G1186 of the trees: G3767 therefore G3956 every G1186 tree G4160 which brings G4160 not forth G2570 good G2590 fruit G1581 is hewn G1581 down, G906 and cast G1519 into G4442 the fire.
11 G3303 I indeed G907 baptize G5204 you with water G3341 to repentance. G2064 but he that comes G3694 after G2478 me is mightier G3739 than I, whose G5266 shoes G1510 I am G2425 not worthy G941 to bear: G907 he shall baptize G40 you with the Holy G4151 Ghost, G4442 and with fire:
12 G3739 Whose G4425 fan G5495 is in his hand, G1245 and he will thoroughly G1245 purge G257 his floor, G4863 and gather G4621 his wheat G1519 into G596 the garner; G2618 but he will burn G892 up the chaff G762 with unquenchable G4442 fire.
13 G5119 Then G3854 comes G2424 Jesus G1056 from Galilee G2446 to Jordan G2491 to John, G907 to be baptized of him.
14 G2491 But John G1254 forbade G3004 him, saying, G2192 I have G5532 need G907 to be baptized G2064 of you, and come you to me?
15 G2424 And Jesus G611 answering G2036 said G863 to him, Suffer G737 it to be so now: G3779 for thus G4241 it becomes G4137 us to fulfill G3956 all G1343 righteousness. G5119 Then G863 he suffered him.
16 G2424 And Jesus, G907 when he was baptized, G305 went G2117 up straightway G5204 out of the water: G2400 and, see, G3772 the heavens G455 were opened G1492 to him, and he saw G4151 the Spirit G2316 of God G2597 descending G5616 like G4058 a dove, G2064 and lighting on him:
