The Temptation of Jesus

1 Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil, 2 and [after he]a had fasted forty days and forty nights, then he was hungry. 3 And the tempter approached [and]b said to him, "If you are the Son of God, order that these stones become bread." 4 But he answered [and]c said, "It is written, 'Man will not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God."d 5 Then the devil took him to the holy citye and placed him on the highest point of the temple 6 and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down! For it is written, 'He will command his angels concerning you,' and 'On [their] hands they will lift you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'" 7 Jesus said to him, "On the other hand it is written, 'You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.'"f 8 Again the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, 9 and he said to him, "I will give to you all these things, if you will fall down [and]g worship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go away, Satan, for it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God and serve only him.'"h 11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and began ministering to him.
