The Temptation of Jesus

1 1Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness 2to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after He had 3fasted forty days and forty nights, He athen became hungry. 3 And 4the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the 5Son of God, command that these stones become bread." 4 But He answered and said, "It is written, '6MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.' " 5 Then the devil took Him into 7the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down ; for it is written, '8HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU'; and 'ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.' " 7 Jesus said to him, "bOn the other hand, it is written, '9YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.' " 8 10Again, 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, "11All these things I will give You, if You fall down and cworship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan ! For it is written, '12YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND dSERVE HIM ONLY.' " 11 Then the devil left Him; and behold, 13angels came and began to minister to Him.
