When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees heard that Jesus more disciples doth make and baptize than John,
After these things came Jesus and his disciples to the land of Judea, and there he did tarry with them, and was baptizing;
and they came unto John, and said to him, 'Rabbi, he who was with thee beyond the Jordan, to whom thou didst testify, lo, this one is baptizing, and all are coming unto him.'
because there was born to you to-day a Saviour -- who is Christ the Lord -- in the city of David,
and if any one doth question you, Wherefore do ye loose it? thus ye shall say to him -- The Lord hath need of it.'
and they said, 'The Lord hath need of it;'
the word that he sent to the sons of Israel, proclaiming good news -- peace through Jesus Christ (this one is Lord of all,)
which no one of the rulers of this age did know, for if they had known, the Lord of the glory they would not have crucified;
The first man is out of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord out of heaven;
for not ourselves do we preach, but Christ Jesus -- Lord, and ourselves your servants because of Jesus;
My brethren, hold not, in respect of persons, the faith of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and he hath upon the garment and upon his thigh the name written, 'King of kings, and Lord of lords.'
And thou, child, Prophet of the Highest Shalt thou be called; For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord, To prepare His ways.
