And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise. ” Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, ” Teacher, what shall we do? ” And he said to them, ” Collect no more than you are authorized to do. ” Soldiers also asked him, ” And we, what shall we do? ” And he said to them, ” Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages. ” As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, John answered them all, saying, ” I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire. ” So with many other exhortations he preached good news to the people.
