Mark 1:2-8 NIV

Mark 1:2-8 NIV [2] as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: "I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way"- [3] "a voice of one calling in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'" [4] And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. [5] The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. [6] John wore clothing made of camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. [7] And this was his message: "After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. [8] I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
