15 And the people are looking forward, and all are reasoning in their hearts concerning John, whether or not he may be the Christ; 16John answered, saying to all, ‘I indeed with water do baptise you, but he cometh who is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to loose the latchet of his sandals—he shall baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire; 17whose winnowing shovel is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and will gather the wheat to his storehouse, and the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.’ 18And, therefore, indeed with many other things, exhorting, he was proclaiming good news to the people, 19and Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him concerning Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, and concerning all the evils that Herod did, 20added also this to all, that he shut up John in the prison.
21 And it came to pass, in all the people being baptised, Jesus also being baptised, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily appearance, as if a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, saying, ‘Thou art My Son—the Beloved, in thee I did delight.’
