26 John answered them, (A)“I baptize with water, but among you stands one you do not know, 27 even (B)he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” 28 These things took place in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

Behold, the Lamb of God

29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, (C)the Lamb of God, who (D)takes away the sin (E)of the world! 30 This is he of whom I said, (F)‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’ 31 I myself did not know him, but (G)for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.” 32 And John (H)bore witness: (I)“I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and (J)it remained on him. 33 I myself did not know him, but (K)he who sent me to baptize (L)with water said to me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, (M)this is he who baptizes (N)with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son[a] of God.”
