Matthew 4:1-11

The Temptation of Jesus

1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil.
2 After He had fasted 40 days and 40 nights, He was hungry.
3 Then the tempter approached Him and said, "If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."
4 But He answered, "It is written: Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. " a
5 Then the Devil took Him to the holy city,b 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: He will give His angels orders concerning you , and, they will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. "c
7 Jesus told him, "It is also written: Do not test the Lord your God. " d
8 Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.
9 And he said to Him, "I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me."e
10 Then Jesus told him, "Go away, f Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him. " g
11 Then the Devil left Him, and immediately angels came and began to serve Him.
