7 As they went away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?
8What then did you go out to see? Someone* dressed in soft robes? Look, those who wear soft robes are in royal palaces.
9What then did you go out to see? A prophet?* Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
10This is the one about whom it is written,
See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way before you.
11Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
