Psalm 65:1-3 (King James Version)


Psalm 65

 1Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.

 2O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.

 3Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

Matthew 3:1-6 (King James Version)


Matthew 3

 1In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

 2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 3For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

 4And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

 5Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

 6And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
