For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
Even tax collectors came to be baptized. "Teacher," they asked, "what should we do?"
I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
But wisdom is proved right by all her children."
