And one said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field. 7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, because the breath of Jehovah bloweth upon it; surely the people is grass. 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand forever.” (Isaiah 40:3-8 ASV)

“3 For this is he that was spoken of through Isaiah the prophet, saying, {1} The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. {1) Isa 40:3} 4 Now John himself had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out unto him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about the Jordan; 6 and they were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 7  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming {1} to his baptism, he said unto them, Ye offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? {1) Or [for baptism]} 8 Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of {1} repentance: {1) Or [your repentance]} 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. 10 And even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you {1} in water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not {2} worthy to bear: he shall baptize you {1} in the Holy Spirit and [in] fire: {1) Or [with] 2) Gr [sufficient]} 12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire. 13  Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to the Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John would have hindered him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 But Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer {1} [it] now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffereth him. {1) Or [me]} 16 And Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightway from the water: and lo, the heavens were opened {1} unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him; {1) Some ancient authorities omit [unto him]} 17 and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, {1} This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. {1) Or [This is my Son; my beloved in whom I am well pleased.] See Mt 12:18}” (Matthew 3:3-17 ASV)

“15  And as the people were in expectation, and all men reasoned in their hearts concerning John, whether haply he were the Christ; 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but there cometh he that is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not {1} worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you {2} in the Holy Spirit and [in] fire: {1) Gr [sufficient] 2) Or [with]} 17 whose fan is in his hand, thoroughly to cleanse his threshing-floor, and to gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire. 18 With many other exhortations therefore preached he {1} good tidings unto the people; {1) Or [the gospel]}” (Luke 3:15-18 ASV)

“4 And Paul said, John baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people that they should believe on him that should come after him, that is, on Jesus. 5 And when they heard this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. 7 And they were in all about twelve men.” (Acts 19:4-7 ASV)

“18 Many also of them that had believed came, confessing, and declaring their deeds. 19 And not a few of them that practised magical arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all; and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of the Lord and prevailed.” (Acts 19:18-20 ASV)

“8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of {1} repentance, and begin 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. {1) Or [your repentance]} 9 And even now the axe also lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” (Luke 3:8-9 ASV)

“43 For there is no good tree that bringeth forth corrupt fruit; nor again a corrupt tree that bringeth forth good fruit. 44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.” (Luke 6:43-44 ASV)

“2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: and every that beareth fruit, he cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit. 3 Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein {1} is my Father glorified, {2} that ye bear much fruit; and [so] shall ye be my disciples. {1) Or [was] 2) Many ancient authorities read [that ye bear much fruit, and be my disciples]}” (John 15:2-8 ASV)

“4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ; that ye should be joined to another, [even] to him who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit unto God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the {1} sinful passions, which were through the law, wrought in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. {1) Gr [passions of sins]}” (Romans 7:4-5 ASV)

“8 It was planted in a good {1} soil by {2} many waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly vine. {1) Heb [field] 2) Or [great]} 9 Say thou, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it may wither; that all its fresh springing leaves may wither? and not by a strong arm or much people can it be raised from the roots thereof.” (Ezekiel 17:8-9 ASV)

5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought. 6 According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted: therefore have they forgotten me. 7 Therefore am I unto them as a lion; as a leopard will I watch by the way; 8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart; and there will I devour them like a lioness; the wild beast shall tear them.
9  {1} It is thy destruction, O Israel, {2} that [thou art] against me, against thy help. {1) Or [Thou art destroyed, O Israel; for] thou [etc] 2) Or [for in me, in thy help]; Or [but in me is thy help]}” (Hosea 13:2-9 ASV)
