John 3:22-30 TLV
Afterwards, Yeshua and His disciples came to the land of Judea. There He was staying with them and immersing.
Now John also was immersing at Aenon near Salim, because much water was there and many were coming and being immersed;
for John had not yet been thrown into prison.
Now an argument came up between John’s disciples and a Judean concerning purification.
They came to John and said, “Rabbi, the One who was with you beyond the Jordan, the One you testified about—look, He is immersing, and all are coming to Him!”
John answered, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
You yourselves testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah,’ but rather, ‘I am sent before Him.’
The one who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the best man rejoices when he stands and hears the bridegroom’s voice. So now my joy is complete!
He must increase, while I must decrease.”
