    “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,    because he has anointed me    to proclaim good news to the poor.
    He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners   and recovery of sight for the blind,
    to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

    John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord and in this way[a] all Israel will be saved. As it is written:“The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is[a] my covenant with them when I take away their sins

    and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.[a] It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him

    He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. don’t be afraid.

    Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.

    ‘Look, you scoffers, wonder and perish, for I am going to do something in your days
        that you would never believe,    even if someone told you

    God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”

    May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

     The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you
