1Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, 2returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness
for 3forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry.
And the devil said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread."
And Jesus answered him, "It is written, '4MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE.' "
5And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of 6the world in a moment of time.
And the devil said to Him, "I will give You all this domain and its glory; 7for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.
"Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours."
Jesus answered him, "It is written, '8YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.' "
9And he led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here;
for it is written, '10HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU TO GUARD YOU,'
and, '11ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.' "
And Jesus answered and said to him, "It is said, '12YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.' "
When the devil had finished every temptation, he left Him until an opportune time.
