Matthew 3

3:1 Сега в тези дни, John the Baptist arrived, preaching in the desert of Judea,
3:2 и каза:: "Покайте. For the kingdom of heaven has drawn near.”
3:3 For this is the one who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, казвайки: “A voice crying out in the desert: Пригответе пътя на Господа. Make straight his paths.”
3:4 Now the same John had a garment made from the hair of camels, and a leather belt around his waist. And his food was locusts and wild honey.
3:5 Then Jerusalem, and all Judea, and the entire region around the Jordan went out to him.
3:6 And they were baptized by him in the Jordan, acknowledging their sins.
3:7 След това, seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees arriving for his baptism, Той им каза:: “Progeny of vipers, who warned to you to flee from the approaching wrath?
3:8 Следователно, produce fruit worthy of repentance.
3:9 And do not choose to say within yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that God has the power to raise up sons to Abraham from these stones.
3:10 For even now the axe has been placed at the root of the trees. Следователно, every tree that does not produce good fruit shall be cut down and cast into the fire.
3:11 Наистина, I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who will come after me is more powerful than me. I am not worthy to carry his shoes. He will baptize you with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
3:12 Той държи лопатата в ръката си. And he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing floor. And he will gather his wheat into the barn. Но плявата ще изгори в неугасим огън. "
3:13 След това дойде Исус от Галилея, Джон в река Йордан, за да се кръсти от него.
3:14 Но Джон го отказва, казвайки, "Аз трябваше да се кръстя от вас, и все пак дойде при мен?"
3:15 И в отговор, Исус му каза:: "Разрешение за това за сега. За по този начин той е прилично да изпълним всичко, справедливост. "След това той го оставя.
3:16 А Исус, като са били кръстени, възнесе от водата веднага, и ето, небесата се отвориха, за да го. И видя Божият Дух слиза като гълъб, и слизане от него.
3:17 И ето, имаше един глас от небето, казвайки: "Този е Моят възлюбен Син, в Когото е Моето благоволение. "
