He went into all the vicinity of the Jordan,(A) preaching a baptism of repentance[a] for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:

A voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way for the Lord;
make His paths straight!
Every valley will be filled,
and every mountain and hill will be made low;[b]
the crooked will become straight,
the rough ways smooth,
and everyone[c] will see the salvation of God.(B)[d]
