1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 When he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry afterward. 3 The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
4 But he answered, “It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'”
5 Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will give his angels charge concerning you.' and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, So that you don't dash your foot against a stone.'"
7 Jesus said to him, “Again, it is written, 'You shall not test the Lord, your God.'”
8 Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory. 9 He said to him, "I will give you all of these things, if you will fall down and worship me."
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'”
11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to him. 12 Now when Jesus heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew into Galilee. 13 Leaving Nazareth, he came and lived in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
15 "The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, Toward the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles,
16 The people who sat in darkness saw a great light, To those who sat in the region and shadow of death, To them light has dawned."
17 From that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say, “Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”
12 Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness. 13 He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals; and the angels were ministering to him.
1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. He ate nothing in those days. Afterward, when they were completed, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread."
4 Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'”
5 The devil, leading him up on a high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 The devil said to him, "I will give you all this authority, and their glory, for it has been delivered to me; and I give it to whomever I want. 7 If you therefore will worship before me, it will all be yours."
8 Jesus answered him, “Get behind me Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'”
9 He led him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down from here, 10 for it is written, 'He will give his angels charge concerning you, to guard you;'
11 and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, Lest perhaps you dash your foot against a stone.'"
12 Jesus answering, said to him, “It has been said, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'”
13 When the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him until another time.
