Matthew 3:8-12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
8 Therefore produce fruit consistent with[a] repentance. 9 And don’t presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that God is able to raise up children for Abraham from these stones! 10 Even now the ax is ready to strike the root of the trees! Therefore, every tree that doesn’t produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “I baptize you with[b] water for repentance,[c] but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove[d] His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with[e] the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing shovel[f] is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor and gather His wheat into the barn. But the chaff He will burn up with fire that never goes out.”
2 Peter 2:21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy command delivered to them.
