Matt 11:7-10

Jesus Praises John the Baptist 7As 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.’
