3And when the temptercame to him, he said , If thou be the Son of God,commandthatthesestones be madebread.4But he answered and said , It is written , Manshallnotlivebybreadalone,butbyeveryword that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5Then the deviltakethhimupinto the holycity,andsettethhimon a pinnacle of the temple,6Andsaith unto him,If thou be the Son of God,castthyselfdown:for it is written , He shall givehisangelschargeconcerningthee:andin their hands they shall beartheeup , lest at any time thou dashthyfootagainst a stone.7Jesussaid unto him,It is writtenagain, Thou shaltnottempta the LordthyGod.8Again, the deviltakethhimupinto an exceedinghighmountain,andshewethhimall the kingdoms of the world,and the glory of them;9Andsaith unto him,All these things will I givethee,if thou wilt fall down and worshipme.10ThensaithJesus unto him,Get thee hence , Satan:for it is written , Thou shalt worship the LordthyGod,andhimonly shalt thou serve .11Then the devilleavethhim,and,behold , angelscameandministered unto him.12Now when Jesus had heardthatJohn was cast into prison , he departedintoGalilee;13AndleavingNazareth, he came and dweltinCapernaum,which is upon the sea coast,in the borders of ZabulonandNephthalim:14That it might be fulfilledwhich was spokenbyEsaias the prophet,saying ,
