And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
He said, I [am] the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.
But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

And they said, Some [say that thou art] John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
