JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION
MATTHEW 3: 43-46
Jesus was baptized by John by immersion. (compare Matthew 3: 15-17)
  43 And Jesus, answering, said unto him, Suffer me to be baptized of thee, for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
  44 And John went down into the water and baptized him.
  45 And Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and John saw, and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon Jesus.
  46 And lo, he heard a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear ye him.
