He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.2 17 His winnowing fork3 is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."4 18 And with many other words John exhorted the people and preached the good news to them. 19 But when John rebuked Herod5 the tetrarch because of Herodias, his brother's wife, and all the other evil things he had done, 20 Herod added this to them all: He locked John up in prison.6
