[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 19 This is the R35 testimony of John, when the R36 Jews sent to him priests and Levites from R37 Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" 20 And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, "I R38 am not the F17 Christ." 21 They asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" R39 And he said, "I am not." "Are you the R40 Prophet?" And he answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said, "I am A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, `MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,' as Isaiah the prophet said." 24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. 25 They asked him, and said to him, "Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ, F18 nor Elijah, nor the R42 Prophet?" 26 John answered them saying, "I R43 baptize in F19 water, but among you stands One whom you do not know. 27 "It is He R44 who comes after me, the thong R45 of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie." 28 These things took place in Bethany beyond R46 the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
