"a voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’"
THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.’"
He is a voice shouting in the wilderness: ‘Prepare a pathway for the Lord’s coming! Make a straight road for him!’"
Thunder in the desert! Prepare for God's arrival! Make the road smooth and straight!
The voice of one crying in the waste land, Make ready the way of the Lord, make his roads straight;
the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,’"
"The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.’"
