LK 3:1 And in the fifteenth year of the government of Tiberius Caesar -- Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother, tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene -- LK 3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being chief priests -- there came a word of God unto John the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness, LK 3:3 and he came to all the region round the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of reformation -- to remission of sins, LK 3:4 as it hath been written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, `A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths; LK 3:5 every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straightness, and the rough become smooth ways; LK 3:6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God. LK 3:7 Then said he to the multitudes coming forth to be baptised by him, `Brood of vipers! who did prompt you to flee from the coming wrath? LK 3:8 make, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have a father -- Abraham; for I say to you, that God is able out of these stones to raise children to Abraham; LK 3:9 and already also the axe unto the root of the trees is laid, every tree, therefore, not making good fruit is cut down, and to fire it is cast. LK 3:10 And the multitudes were questioning him, saying, `What, then, shall we do? LK 3:11 and he answering saith to them, `He having two coats -- let him impart to him having none, and he having victuals -- in like manner let him do. LK 3:12 And there came also tax-gatherers to be baptised, and they said unto him, `Teacher, what shall we do? LK 3:13 and he said unto them, `Exact no more than that directed you. LK 3:14 And questioning him also were those warring, saying, `And we, what shall we do?and he said unto them, `Do violence to no one, nor accuse falsely, and be content with your wages. LK 3:15 And the people are looking forward, and all are reasoning in their hearts concerning John, whether or not he may be the Christ; LK 3:16 John answered, saying to all, `I indeed with water do baptise you, but he cometh who is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to loose the latchet of his sandals -- he shall baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire; LK 3:17 whose winnowing shovel `isin his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and will gather the wheat to his storehouse, and the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.' LK 3:18 And, therefore, indeed with many other things, exhorting, he was proclaiming good news to the people, LK 3:19 and Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him concerning Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, and concerning all the evils that Herod did, LK 3:20 added also this to all, that he shut up John in the prison. LK 3:21 And it came to pass, in all the people being baptised, Jesus also being baptised, and praying, the heaven was opened, LK 3:22 and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily appearance, as if a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, saying, `Thou art My Son -- the Beloved, in thee I did delight. LK 3:23 And Jesus himself was beginning to be about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, son of Joseph, LK 3:24 the `sonof Eli, the `sonof Matthat, the `sonof Levi, the `sonof Melchi, the `sonof Janna, the `sonof Joseph, LK 3:25 the `sonof Mattathias, the `sonof Amos, the `sonof Naum, the `sonof Esli, LK 3:26 the `sonof Naggai, the `sonof Maath, the `sonof Mattathias, the `sonof Semei, the `sonof Joseph, the `sonof Juda, LK 3:27 the `sonof Joanna, the `sonof Rhesa, the `sonof Zerubbabel, the `sonof Shealtiel, LK 3:28 the `sonof Neri, the `sonof Melchi, the `sonof Addi, the `sonof Cosam, the `sonof Elmodam, the `sonof Er, LK 3:29 the `sonof Jose, the `sonof Eliezer, the `sonof Jorim, the `sonof Matthat, LK 3:30 the `sonof Levi, the `sonof Simeon, the `sonof Juda, the `sonof Joseph, the `sonof Jonan, the `sonof Eliakim, LK 3:31 the `sonof Melea, the `sonof Mainan, the `sonof Mattatha, the `sonof Nathan, LK 3:32 the `sonof David, the `sonof Jesse, the `sonof Obed, the `sonof Booz, the `sonof Salmon, the `sonof Nahshon, LK 3:33 the `sonof Amminadab, the `sonof Aram, the `sonof Esrom, the `sonof Pharez, LK 3:34 the `sonof Judah, the `sonof Jacob, the `sonof Isaac, the `sonof Abraham, the `sonof Terah, the `sonof Nahor, LK 3:35 the `sonof Serug, the `sonof Reu, the `sonof Peleg, the `sonof Eber, LK 3:36 the `sonof Salah, the `sonof Cainan, the `sonof Arphaxad, the `sonof Shem, the `sonof Noah, the `sonof Lamech, LK 3:37 the `sonof Methuselah, the `sonof Enoch, the `sonof Jared, the `sonof Mahalaleel, LK 3:38 the `sonof Cainan, the `sonof Enos, the `sonof Seth, the `sonof Adam, the `sonof God.
