Book of Matthew: Chapter 3

Vulgate (Latin)King James (English)
3:1 in diebus autem illis venit Iohannes Baptista praedicans in deserto Iudaeae3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
3:2 et dicens paenitentiam agite adpropinquavit enim regnum caelorum3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
3:3 hic est enim qui dictus est per Esaiam prophetam dicentem vox clamantis in deserto parate viam Domini rectas facite semitas eius3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
3:4 ipse autem Iohannes habebat vestimentum de pilis camelorum et zonam pelliciam circa lumbos suos esca autem eius erat lucustae et mel silvestre3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
3:5 tunc exiebat ad eum Hierosolyma et omnis Iudaea et omnis regio circa Iordanen3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
3:6 et baptizabantur in Iordane ab eo confitentes peccata sua3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
3:7 videns autem multos Pharisaeorum et Sadducaeorum venientes ad baptismum suum dixit eis progenies viperarum quis demonstravit vobis fugere a futura ira3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 facite ergo fructum dignum paenitentiae3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
3:9 et ne velitis dicere intra vos patrem habemus Abraham dico enim vobis quoniam potest Deus de lapidibus istis suscitare filios Abrahae3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
3:10 iam enim securis ad radicem arborum posita est omnis ergo arbor quae non facit fructum bonum exciditur et in ignem mittitur3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
3:11 ego quidem vos baptizo in aqua in paenitentiam qui autem post me venturus est fortior me est cuius non sum dignus calciamenta portare ipse vos baptizabit in Spiritu Sancto et igni3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
3:12 cuius ventilabrum in manu sua et permundabit aream suam et congregabit triticum suum in horreum paleas autem conburet igni inextinguibili3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
3:13 tunc venit Iesus a Galilaea in Iordanen ad Iohannem ut baptizaretur ab eo3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
3:14 Iohannes autem prohibebat eum dicens ego a te debeo baptizari et tu venis ad me3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
3:15 respondens autem Iesus dixit ei sine modo sic enim decet nos implere omnem iustitiam tunc dimisit eum3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
3:16 baptizatus autem confestim ascendit de aqua et ecce aperti sunt ei caeli et vidit Spiritum Dei descendentem sicut columbam venientem super se3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
3:17 et ecce vox de caelis dicens hic est Filius meus dilectus in quo mihi conplacui3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
