The Baptism of Jesus

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John in order to be baptized by him. 14 But John tried to preventa him, saying, "{I need}b to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?" 15 But Jesus answered [and]c said to him, "Permit [it] now, for in this way it is right for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he permitted him. 16 Now [after he]d was baptized, Jesus immediately went up from the water, and behold, the heavens openede and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove comingf upon him. 17 And behold, [there was]g a voice from heaven saying, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."
