John the Baptist Fulfills the Malachi Prophecy

1:01 A beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ ...
  the Son of God.
1:02 As it has been written in Isaiah the Prophet ...
  Behold, I send my messenger off from myself before your face ...
  who will build down "the way" ...
  for you.
1:03 A "voice" shouting in the "wilderness" ...
  Prepare "the way" of a Lord! ...
  make his paths straight!
1:04 John became the one baptising in the wilderness ...
  and (the one) preaching a baptism of repentance ...
  into a forgiveness of sins.
1:05 And the entire Judean region and all the Jerusalemites were going out to him ...
  and they were being baptised by him in the Jordan River ...
  confessing their sins.
1:06 And John was clothed in "camel hairs" and a "leather girdle" around his waist.
  And (he was) eating "locusts" and "honey of the field."
1:07 And he was preaching saying ... One is coming after me ... stronger than me ...
  of whom I am not worthy, stooping, to untie the "thong of his sandals."
1:08 I baptised you in water ...
  but he will baptise you in a Holy Spirit.
