Yn y bymthegfed flwyddyn o deyrnasiad Tiberius Cesar, Pontius Pilat yn llywodraethwr Jwdea, a Herod yn tetrarch Galilea, a'i frawd Philip tetrarch o ranbarth Ituraea a Trachonitis, a Lysanias tetrarch o Abilene, yn ystod archoffeiriadaeth Annas a Caiaffas, daeth gair Duw at Ioan fab Sechareia yn yr anialwch. Ac aeth i mewn i'r holl ranbarth o amgylch yr Iorddonen, gan gyhoeddi bedydd edifeirwch am faddeuant pechodau.
In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. And he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Fel y mae wedi ei ysgrifennu yn llyfr geiriau Eseia y proffwyd, "Llais un yn llefain yn yr anialwch: 'Paratowch ffordd yr Arglwydd, gwnewch ei lwybrau'n syth.
As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Llenwir pob cwm, a bydd pob mynydd a bryn yn isel, a bydd y cam yn dod yn syth, a bydd y lleoedd garw yn dod yn ffyrdd gwastad,
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough places shall become level ways,
a bydd pob cnawd yn gweld iachawdwriaeth Duw. '" Dywedodd felly wrth y torfeydd a ddaeth allan i gael eu bedyddio ganddo, "Rydych chi'n nythaid o wiberod! Pwy wnaeth eich rhybuddio i ffoi rhag y digofaint i ddod? Cadwch ffrwythau yn unol ag edifeirwch. A pheidiwch â dechrau dweud wrthych chi'ch hun, 'Mae gennym ni Abraham fel ein tad.' Oherwydd rwy'n dweud wrthych chi, mae Duw yn gallu o'r plant hyn i fagu plant i Abraham. Hyd yn oed nawr mae'r fwyell wedi'i gosod wrth wraidd y coed. Felly mae pob coeden nad yw'n dwyn ffrwyth da yn cael ei thorri i lawr a'i thaflu i'r tân. "
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'" He said therefore to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."
A gofynnodd y torfeydd iddo, "Beth felly a wnawn ni?"
And the crowds asked him, "What then shall we do?"
Ac atebodd nhw, "Mae pwy bynnag sydd â dau diwnig i rannu gydag ef sydd heb ddim, a phwy bynnag sydd â bwyd yw gwneud yr un peth."
And he answered them, "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."
Daeth casglwyr trethi hefyd i gael eu bedyddio a dweud wrtho, "Athro, beth wnawn ni?"
Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?"
Ac meddai wrthyn nhw, "Casglwch ddim mwy nag yr ydych chi wedi'ch awdurdodi i'w wneud."
And he said to them, "Collect no more than you are authorized to do."
Gofynnodd milwyr iddo hefyd, "A ninnau, beth a wnawn ni?" Ac meddai wrthyn nhw, "Peidiwch ag cribddeilio arian gan unrhyw un trwy fygythiadau na thrwy gyhuddiad ffug, a byddwch yn fodlon â'ch cyflog."
Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages."
As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, John answered them all, saying, "I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."
Felly gyda llawer o anogaethau eraill fe bregethodd newyddion da i'r bobl. Ond Herod y tetrarch, a oedd wedi ei geryddu ganddo am Herodias, gwraig ei frawd, ac am yr holl bethau drwg a wnaeth Herod, ychwanegodd hyn atynt i gyd, iddo gloi John yn y carchar. Nawr pan gafodd yr holl bobl eu bedyddio, a phan oedd Iesu hefyd wedi cael ei fedyddio ac yn gweddïo, agorwyd y nefoedd, a disgynodd yr Ysbryd Glân arno ar ffurf gorfforol, fel colomen; a daeth llais o'r nefoedd, "Ti yw fy annwyl Fab; gyda chwi rwy'n falch iawn."
So with many other exhortations he preached good news to the people. But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Herodias, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done, added this to them all, that he locked up John in prison. Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."
