2 As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,*
See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,*
who will prepare your way;
3 the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight ,
4John the baptizer appeared* in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
