The Temptation of Jesus

4:1-11pp -- Mk 1:12,13; Lk 4:1-13

1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted1 by the devil.2 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights,3 he was hungry. 3 The tempter4 came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God,5 tell these stones to become bread." 4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'a "6 5 Then the devil took him to the holy city7 and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 "If you are the Son of God,"8 he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: " 'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'b "9 7 Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'c "10 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me." 10 Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan!11 For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'d "12 11 Then the devil left him,13 and angels came and attended him.14
