John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.         
And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.         
Now John was clothed with camel's hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey.         
And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.         
I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
