And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

“And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.

Then he suffered him.

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:15-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬
