Matthew 11:9-11
What then did you go out to see? A prophet? [1] Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.10 This is he of whom it is written,

Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
who will prepare your way before you.

11 Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.


[1] Some manuscripts Why then did you go out? To see a prophet?
