  (The following is abstracted from the Holy Bible, added here
   to provide clarification to Archibald Thompson's words
   written in the diary.)

===============================================================

          HOLY BIBLE - Book of St. Matthew, chapter 3

                In those days came John the Baptist,
          preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
                And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of
          heaven is at hand.
                For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet
          Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the
          wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make
          his paths straight.
                And the same John had his raiment of camel's
          hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his
          meat was locusts and wild honey.
                Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea,
          and all the region round about Jordan,
                And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing
          their sins.
                But when he saw many of the Pharisees and
          Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them,
          O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee
          from the wrath to come?
                Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
                And think not to say within yourselves, We have
          Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that
          God is able of these stones to raise up children unto
          Abraham.
                And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the
          trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth
          good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
                I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
          but he that cometh after me is mightier than
          I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall
          baptise you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
                Whose fan is his hand, and he will throughly
          purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner;
          but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
                Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan
          unto John, to be baptized of him.
                But John forbade him, saying, I have need to be
          baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
                And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it
          to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all
          righteousness. The 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.
