Luke 4:9-19 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
9 Then he brought Him to Jerusalem and caused Him to stand on the roof of the Temple, and said to Him, "If you are God's Son, throw yourself down from here; for it is written, 10 `He will give orders to His angels concerning thee, to guard thee safely;' 11 and `On their hands they shall bear thee up, Lest at any moment thou shouldst strike thy foot against a stone.'" 12 The reply of Jesus was, "It is said, `Thou shalt not put the Lord they God to the proof.'" 13 So the Devil, having fully tried every kind of temptation on Him, left Him for a time. 14 Then Jesus returned in the Spirit's power to Galilee; and His fame spread through all the adjacent districts. 15 And He proceeded to teach in their synagogues, winning praise from all. 16 He came to Nazareth also, where He had been brought up; and, as was His custom, He went to the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. 17 And there was handed to Him the book of the Prophet Isaiah, and, opening the book, He found the place where it was written, 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor; He has sent me to announce release to the prisoners of war and recovery of sight to the blind: to send away free those whom tyranny has crushed, 19 to proclaim the year of acceptance with the Lord."
