Matthew 3:7-17 (KJV)
[7] But when he saw many of the Pharisees and
Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them,
O generation of vipers, who hath warned you
to flee from the wrath to come?

[8] Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

[9] And think not to say within yourselves, We
have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you,
that God is able of these stones to raise
up children unto Abraham.

[10] And now also the axe is laid unto the
root of the trees: therefore every tree
which bringeth not forth good fruit is
hewn down, and cast into the fire.

[11] I indeed baptize you with water unto
repentance. but he that cometh after
me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am
not worthy to bear: he shall baptize
you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

[12] Whose fan is in his hand, and he will
throughly purge his floor, and gather
his wheat into the garner; but he will
burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

[13] Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to
Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

[14] But John forbad him, saying, I have
need to be baptized of thee, and
comest thou to me?

[15] And Jesus answering said unto him,
Suffer it to be so now: for thus it
becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
Then he suffered him.

[16] And Jesus, when he was baptized, went
up straightway out of the water: and, lo,
the heavens were opened unto him, and he
saw the Spirit of God descending like
a dove, and lighting upon him:

[17] And lo a voice from heaven, saying,
This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.
