23b  Ich bin eine rufende Stimme in der Wüsten: Richtet den Weg des Herren.
26b  Ich taufe mit Wasser, aber er ist mitten unter euch getreten, den ihr nicht kennet.
27  Der ist's der nach mir kommen wird, welcher vor mir gewesen ist,
des ich nicht wert bin, daß ich seine Schuriemen auflöse.

23b  I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord,
26b  I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27  He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me,
whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
