Matthew 3:13-17

The Baptism of Jesus

13 a  Then Jesus came b  from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 c  John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15But Jesus answered him, Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold d  the heavens were opened to him
Some manuscripts omit  to him
and he f  saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;
17and behold g  a voice from heaven said h  This is my beloved Son
Or  my Son, my (or the) Beloved
with whom I am well pleased.”
