preaching in the Wildernesse
In those days
came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
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. 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.
