3:1 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiber'i-us Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Iturae'a and Trachoni'tis, and Lysa'ni-as tetrarch of Abile'ne,

3:2 in the high-priesthood of Annas and Ca'iaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechari'ah in the wilderness;

3:3 and he went into all the region about the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

3:4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

3:5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;

3:6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God."

3:7 He said therefore to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

3:8 Bear fruits that befit repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, `We have Abraham as our father'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.

3:9 Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."

3:10 And the multitudes asked him, "What then shall we do?"

3:11 And he answered them, "He who has two coats, let him share with him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise."

3:12 Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?"

3:13 And he said to them, "Collect no more than is appointed you."

3:14 Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Rob no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your wages."

3:15 As the people were in expectation, and all men questioned in their hearts concerning John, whether perhaps he were the Christ,

3:16 John answered them all, "I baptize you with water; but he who is mightier than I is coming, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

3:17 His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into his granary, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."

3:18 So, with many other exhortations, he preached good news to the people.

3:19 But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Hero'di-as, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done,

3:20 added this to them all, that he shut up John in prison.

3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened,

3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form, as a dove, and a voice came from heaven, "Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased."

3:23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,

3:24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jan'na-i, the son of Joseph,

3:25 the son of Mattathi'as, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Nag'ga-i,

3:26 the son of Ma'ath, the son of Mattathi'as, the son of Sem'e-in, the son of Josech, the son of Joda,

3:27 the son of Jo-an'an, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerub'babel, the son of She-al'ti-el, the son of Neri,

3:28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elma'dam, the son of Er,

3:29 the son of Joshua, the son of Elie'zer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,

3:30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eli'akim,

3:31 the son of Me'le-a, the son of Menna, the son of Mat'tatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David,

3:32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Bo'az, the son of Sala, the son of Nahshon,

3:33 the son of Ammin'adab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah,

3:34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,

3:35 the son of Serug, the son of Re'u, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,

3:36 the son of Ca-i'nan, the son of Arphax'ad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,

3:37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Maha'lale-el, the son of Ca-i'nan,

3:38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
