11 I indeed baptize you with water qunto repentance: rbut he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall sbaptize you with tthe Holy Ghost, and with ufire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge xhis floor, and ygather his wheat into the garner; but he will zburn up the chaff with zzunquenchable fire.
13 *aThen cometh Jesus bfrom Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil call righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw dthe Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 eAnd lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my fbeloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
