Luke 3:7-9 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
7 Many people came out to John to be baptised. He said to them, `You family of snakes! Who told you to run away from God's anger that is coming?
8 Do good things that will show you have stopped your wrong ways! Do not begin to say to yourselves, "We are Abraham's children. " I tell you, God can make children for Abraham from these stones.
9 The axe is ready to cut down the trees. Every tree that does not have good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.'
