Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,

who will prepare your way, 2

Prepare the way for the Lord,

make 3  his paths straight. 4 

1:4 In the wilderness 5  John the baptizer 6  began preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 7  1:5 People 8  from the whole Judean countryside and all of Jerusalem 9  were going out to him, and he was baptizing them 10  in the Jordan River as they confessed their sins. 1:6 John wore a garment made of camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 11
