  • In the fifteenth year of the rule of the emperor Tiberius,

  • Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea,

  • and Herod, the ruler of Galilee,

  • and Annas and Caiaphas the high priests,

  • The word of God came to John in the desert,

  • and he came into all the country near the Jordan river,

  • preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

  • Turn away from your sins! And be baptized!

  • And God will forgive your sins!

  • As it is written in the book of the prophet Isaiah;

  • Someone is shouting in the desert;

  • Get the road ready for the Lord!

  • Make a straight path for Him to travel.

  • Every valley must be filled up.

  • Every hill and mountain leveled off!

  • The winding roads must be made straight.

  • And the rough paths made smooth,

  • and all mankind will see God's salvation!

  • What shall we do?

  • You brood of vipers!

  • What do you want us to do?

  • Whoever has two shirts,

  • must give one to the man who has none.

  • And whoever has food must share it!

  • Teacher,

  • we are tax collectors.

  • What shall we do?

  • Don't collect more than is legal.

  • And what about us? What are we to do?

  • Don't take money from anyone by force.

  • And don't accuse anyone falsely.

  • Be content with your pay.

  • Tell us. Are you the Christ?

  • I baptize you with water.

  • But Someone is coming who is much greater than I am.

  • I'm not good enough even to untie His sandals.

  • He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

  • He has His grain shovel with Him,

  • to thresh out all the grain and gather the wheat into His barn.

  • And the Holy Spirit came down on Jesus in bodily form like a dove.

  • And a voice from Heaven said;

  • You are My beloved Son,

  • in You I am well pleased.
