26 John answered them saying, “I baptize [a]in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know.27 It isHe who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.”28 These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!30 This is He on behalf of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who [b]has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’31 I did not recognize [c]Him, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I came baptizing [d]in water.”32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him.33 I did not recognize [e]Him, but He who sent me to baptize [f]in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes [g]in the Holy Spirit.’34 I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”
