Pentecost - Shavuot - Mattithyahu (Matthew) 3:11-17


Matthew 3:11-17

11  "I indeed immerse you in water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in the Ruah ha'Qodesh and fire.

12  "His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor, and gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire."

13  Then יהושע came from Galil to Yoḥanan at the Yardĕn to be immersed by him.

14  But Yoḥanan was hindering Him, saying, "I need to be immersed by You, and You come to me?"

15  But יהושע answering, said to him, "Permit it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fill all righteousness." Then he permitted Him.

16  And having been immersed, יהושע went up immediately from the water, and see, the shamayim were opened, and He saw the Ruaḥ of יהוה descending like a dove and coming upon Him,

17  and see, a voice out of the shamayim, saying, "This is My Bĕn, the Beloved, in whom I delight."
