John 1:19-34

LEB 19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they could ask him, "Who are you?" NIV 19 Now this was John's testimony when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. LEB 20 And he confessed--and he did not deny, and confessed--"I am not the Christ!" NIV 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, "I am not the Christ. " LEB 21 And they asked him, "Then who [are] you? Are you Elijah?" And he said, "I am not!" "Are you the Prophet?" And he answered, "No!" NIV 21 They asked him, "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" He answered, "No." LEB 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we can give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" NIV 22 Finally they said, "Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself ?" LEB 23 He said, "I [am] 'the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, "Make straight the way of the Lord," '<note: A quotation from Isa 40:3> just as Isaiah the prophet said." NIV 23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.' " LEB 24 (And they had been sent from the Pharisees.) NIV 24 Now some Pharisees who had been sent LEB 25 And they asked him and said to him, "Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?" NIV 25 questioned him, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?" LEB 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water. In your midst stands [one] whom you do not know-- NIV 26 "I baptize with water," John replied, "but among you stands one you do not know. LEB 27 the one who comes after me, of whom I am not worthy {to untie} the strap of his sandal!" NIV 27 He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie." LEB 28 These [things] took place in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. NIV 28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. LEB 29 On the next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! NIV 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! LEB 30 This one is [the one] about whom I said, 'After me is coming a man who is ahead of me, because he existed before me.' NIV 30 This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' LEB 31 And I did not know him, but in order that he could be revealed to Israel, because of this I came baptizing with water." NIV 31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel." LEB 32 And John testified, saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and remaining upon him. NIV 32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. LEB 33 And I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water, that one said to me, '[The one] upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon him--this one is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' NIV 33 I would not have known him, except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.' LEB 34 And I have seen and testify that this one is the Chosen One of God. NIV 34 I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God."
