Settling this once and for all!

Shlama Akhay,

I would base the translation on context. In this case, John was baptizing in a river so I would translate it "immerse you in water."

In other contexts, your hands can be immersed in water or with water when doing a ritual washing. It was common to refer to the washing of hands in bowls as amad.

Yeah good to keep things in context. As for in the river, immerse would mean to "submerge under the surface of the water" right?
