A voice of one calling:
“In the wilderness prepare
    the way(A) for the Lord[a];
make straight(B) in the desert
    a highway for our God.[b](C)
Every valley shall be raised up,(D)
    every mountain and hill(E) made low;
the rough ground shall become level,(F)
    the rugged places a plain.
And the glory(G) of the Lord will be revealed,
    and all people will see it together.(H)
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”(I)
