Mark 1:1-8 HNV

1 The beginning of the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of God.
2 As it is written in the prophets, "Behold, I send my messenger before your face, Who will prepare your way before you.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make ready the way of the Lord! Make his paths straight!'"
4 Yochanan came immersing in the wilderness and preaching the immersion of repentance for forgiveness of sins.
5 All the country of Yehudah and all those of Yerushalayim went out to him. They were immersed by him in the Yarden river, confessing their sins.
6 Yochanan was clothed with camel's hair and a leather belt around his loins. He ate locusts and wild honey.
7 He preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen.
8 I immersed you in water, but he will immerse you in the Ruach HaKodesh."
