Bible: Luke 3:2-6

3:2 during the high priesthood 1  of Annas and Caiaphas, the word 2  of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. 3  3:3 He 4  went into all the region around the Jordan River, 5  preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 6 

3:4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,

“The voice 7  of one shouting in the wilderness: 8 

‘Prepare the way for the Lord,

make 9  his paths straight.

3:5 Every valley will be filled, 10 

and every mountain and hill will be brought low,

and the crooked will be made straight,

and the rough ways will be made smooth,

3:6 and all humanity 11  will see the salvation of God.’ 12
