And Jesus, being full of the Holy Ghost, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
and for forty days was tempted by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward when they were ended, He hungered.
And the devil said unto Him, "If Thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread."
And Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written: `Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'"
And the devil, taking Him up onto a high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
And the devil said unto Him, "All this power will I give Thee, and the glory of them; for this has been delivered unto me, and to whomsoever I will, I give it.
If Thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be Thine."
And Jesus answered and said unto him, "Get thee behind Me, Satan! For it is written: `Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.'"
And he brought Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple and said unto Him, "If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down from hence.
For it is written: `He shall give His angels charge over thee to keep thee,'
and, `In their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.'"
And Jesus answering said unto him, "It is said, `Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.'"
And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season.
