1 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

19And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"The Testimony of John the Baptist Jn.1.19-28 c.27ce | Mt.3.1-12 | Mk.1.1-8 | Lk.3.1-9Καὶ αὑτη ἐστὶν ἡ μαρτυρία τοῦ Ἰωάννου, ὅτε ἀπέστειλαν πρὸς αὐτὸν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι ἐξ Ἱεροσολύμων ἱερεῖς καὶ Λευίτας ἵνα ἐρωτήσωσιν αὐτόν, Σὺ τίς εἶ;
20He confessed, he did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ." καὶ ὡμολόγησεν καὶ οὐκ ἠρνήσατο, καὶ ὡμολόγησεν ὅτι Ἐγὼ οὐκ εἰμὶ ὁ Χριστός.
21And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" And he answered, "No." καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτόν, Τί οὖν; σύ Ἠλίας εἶ; καὶ λέγει, Οὐκ εἰμί. Ὁ προφήτης εἶ σύ; καὶ ἀπεκρίθη, Οὐ.
22They said to him then, "Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" εἶπαν οὖν αὐτῷ, Τίς εἶ; ἵνα ἀπόκρισιν δῶμεν τοῖς πέμψασιν ἡμᾶς· τί λέγεις περὶ σεαυτοῦ;
23He said, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as the prophet Isaiah said."- I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness Jn.1.23 | Is.40.3ἐφη,

Ἐγὼ φωνὴ βοῶντος ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ,
εὐθύνατε τὴν ὁδὸν κυρίου,

καθὼς εἶπεν Ἠσαΐας ὁ προφήτης.

24Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. Καὶ ἀπεσταλμένοι ἦσαν ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων.
25They asked him, "Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?" καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ, Τί οὖν βαπτίζεις εἰ σὺ οὐκ εἶ ὁ Χριστὸς οὐδὲ Ἠλίας οὐδὲ ὁ προφήτης;
26JOHN answered them, "I baptize with water; but among you stands one whom you do not know, ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰωάννης λέγων, Ἐγὼ βαπτίζω ἐν ὑδατι· μέσος ὑμῶν ἑστηκεν ὃν ὑμεῖς οὐκ οἰδατε,
27even he who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie." ὁ ὀπίσω μου ἐρχόμενος, οὗ οὐκ εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ἄξιος ἵνα λύσω αὐτοῦ τὸν ἱμάντα τοῦ ὑποδήματος.
28This took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. Ταῦτα ἐν Βηθανίᾳ ἐγένετο πέραν τοῦ Ἰορδάνου, ὁπου ἦν ὁ Ἰωάννης βαπτίζων.
