Matthew 3

3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the
 wilderness of Judea,
3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah,
 saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye
 the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a
 leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locusts and
 wild honey.
3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the
 region about Jordan,
3:6 And were baptized by him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to
 his baptism, he said to them, O generation of vipers, who hath
 warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for
 [our] father: for I say to you, that God is able of these
 stones to raise up children to Abraham.
3:10 And now also the ax is laid to the root of the trees:
 therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is
 hewn down, and cast into the fire.
3:11 I indeed baptize you with water to repentance: but he that
 cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy
 to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and [with]
3:12 Whose fan [is] in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse
 his floor, and gather his wheat into the granary; but he will
 burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.
3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan to John, to be
 baptized by him.
3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized by
 thee, and comest thou to me?
3:15 And Jesus answering said to him, Suffer [it to be so] now:
 for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he
 suffered him.
3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up immediately out of
 the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw
 the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon
3:17 And lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved
 Son, in whom I am well pleased.
