9 And he took him to Jerusalem and put him on the highest point of the Temple and said to him, If you are the Son of God, let yourself go down from here; for it is said in the Writings, 10 He will give his angels orders to take care of you: 11 And, In their hands they will keep you up, so that your foot may not be crushed against a stone. 12 And Jesus made answer and said to him, It is said in the Writings, You may not put the Lord your God to the test. 13 And when all these tests were ended the Evil One went away from him for a time. 14 And Jesus came back to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and the news of him went through all the country round about. 15 And he was teaching in their Synagogues and all men gave him praise. 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been as a child, and he went, as his way was, into the Synagogue on the Sabbath, and got up to give a reading. 17 And the book of the prophet Isaiah was given to him and, opening the book, he came on the place where it is said, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because I am marked out by him to give good news to the poor; he has sent me to make well those who are broken-hearted; to say that the prisoners will be let go, and the blind will see, and to make the wounded free from their chains, 19 To give knowledge that the year of the Lord's good pleasure is come.
