OET (OET-RV)[ref]So he said, “I am a voice shouting[fn] in the wilderness smooth the path of the master, as the prophet Isayah said.”


1:23 We’ve deliberately omitted putting a comma here, because it’s also possible that the comma should go after ‘wilderness’.


1:23: Isa 40:3 (LXX).

TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:19–12:50 Jesus reveals himself to the world through his miraculous signs and sermons. Audiences were divided: Some wanted to believe in him; others opposed him. This division intensifies as the book unfolds. Jesus ended his public ministry with a final appeal for people to believe in him (12:44-50).


UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / quotemarks

φωνὴ βοῶντος ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, εὐθύνατε τὴν ὁδὸν Κυρίου

/a/_voice shouting in the desert straighten the way ˱of˲_/the/_Lord

In these phrases, John quotes from the Old Testament book of Isaiah (Isaiah 40:3). It may be helpful to your readers to indicate this by setting off all of this material with quotation marks or with whatever other punctuation or convention your language uses to indicate a quotation.

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / metonymy

ἐγὼ φωνὴ βοῶντος ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

I_‹am› /a/_voice shouting in the desert

Here, voice refers to the person who is crying out in the wilderness. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “I am the one calling out in the wilderness”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / quotesinquotes

ἐγὼ φωνὴ βοῶντος ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, εὐθύνατε τὴν ὁδὸν Κυρίου

I_‹am› /a/_voice shouting in the desert straighten the way ˱of˲_/the/_Lord

This clause is a quotation within a quotation. John is quoting from the book of Isaiah, and Isaiah is quoting the words of the person calling out in the wilderness. It would be best to indicate that by punctuating this material as a second-level quotation, since Luke is quoting from Scripture. However, if your language does not put one direct quotation within another, you could translate this material as an indirect quotation. Alternate translation: “I am a voice crying out in the wilderness to make the way of the Lord straight”

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

εὐθύνατε τὴν ὁδὸν Κυρίου

straighten the way ˱of˲_/the/_Lord

Here John the Baptist quotes Isaiah, using this clause to refer to telling people to get ready to listen to the Lord’s message when it comes. They are to do this by repenting of their sins. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “Repent of your sins so that you will be ready to listen to the Lord’s message when it comes”

Ἠσαΐας ὁ προφήτης

Isaiah the prophet

Isaiah wrote the book of Isaiah, in the Bible.
