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.'"
