And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." (NIV)
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (KJV)
and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased." (NASB)
The Father's voice was heard from heaven pronouncing His blessing on Jesus. It was a memorable event because the voice of God was heard quoting Scripture: "This is My beloved Son (from Ps. 2:7) in whom I am well pleased"(from Isa. 42:1). This is one of three occasions when the Father spoke from heaven in delighted acknowledgment of His unique Son (the other places are Matt. 17:5 and John 12:28).
