Matthew 3:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Were baptized (ἐβαπτίζοντο)

See on Mark 7:4.

Confessing their sins (ἐξομολογούμενοι τὰς ἁμαρτίας αὐτῶν)

The words imply: 1. That confession was connected with baptism. They were baptized while in the act of confessing. 2. An open confession, not a private one to John (ἐξ, compare Acts 19:18; James 5:16). 3. An individual confession; possibly a specific one. (See Luke 3:10-15.)
