1:2 The ministry of Yohan the immerser (The return of ‘Eliyah’)

(Mat. 3:1-12, Luke 3:1-18, Jhn. 1:19-28)

2The prophet Isayah wrote:[ref]

See, I am sending my messenger to you,

the one who will be preparing your path.

3[ref]The voice out in the wilderness shouting,

‘Get the path ready for the master;

Make it smooth for him to travel on.’ ”

4Yohan turned up in the wilderness announcing that people should get immersed in water in order to show that their sins have been forgiven. 5And many from the Yudean region and from the city of Yerusalem went out to hear him, and they confessed their sins and asked Yohan to immerse them in the Yordan river.

6[ref]Yohan was dressed in simple clothes made from camel hair with a leather belt around his waist, and he lived on locusts and wild honey. 7And he also announced, “There’s a greater man coming soon—in fact I’m not even good enough to bend down and untie his sandals. 8I immersed you in water, but he will immerse you all in God’s holy spirit.”

2As it_has_been_written in the Aʸsaias/(Yəshaˊəyāh) the prophet:
Behold, I_am_sending_out the messenger of_me before the_face of_you, who will_be_preparing the way of_you.
3The_voice of_a_shouting one in the wilderness prepare the way of_the_master, be_making the paths of_him straight.
4Yōannaʸs became the one immersing in the wilderness, and proclaiming a_immersion of_repentance for forgiveness of_sins.
5And all the Youdaia region and all of_the ones_from_Hierousalaʸm/(Yərūshālam) was_going_out to him and they_were_being_immersed by him in the Yordanaʸs/(Yarəddēn) river, confessing the sins of_them.
6And the Yōannaʸs was having_dressed_in hairs of_a_camel, and a_ leather _belt around the waist of_him, and eating locusts and wild honey.
7And he_was_proclaiming saying:
The one mightier than me is_coming after me, of_whom I_am not worthy having_bent_down, to_untie the strap of_the sandals of_him.
8I immersed you_all in_water, but he will_be_immersing you_all the_ holy _spirit.
