Luke 4

ESV 1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness MSG 1 Now Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wild. ESV 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. MSG 2 For forty wilderness days and nights he was tested by the Devil. He ate nothing during those days, and when the time was up he was hungry. ESV 3 The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread." MSG 3 The Devil, playing on his hunger, gave the first test: "Since you're God's Son, command this stone to turn into a loaf of bread." ESV 4 And Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone.'" MSG 4 Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: "It takes more than bread to really live." ESV 5 And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, MSG 5 For the second test he led him up and spread out all the kingdoms of the earth on display at once. ESV 6 and said to him, "To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. MSG 6 Then the Devil said, "They're yours in all their splendor to serve your pleasure. I'm in charge of them all and can turn them over to whomever I wish. ESV 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours." MSG 7 Worship me and they're yours, the whole works." ESV 8 And Jesus answered him, "It is written, "'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'" MSG 8 Jesus refused, again backing his refusal with Deuteronomy: "Worship the Lord your God and only the Lord your God. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness." ESV 9 And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, MSG 9 For the third test the Devil took him to Jerusalem and put him on top of the Temple. He said, "If you are God's Son, jump. ESV 10 for it is written, "'He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,' MSG 10 It's written, isn't it, that 'he has placed you in the care of angels to protect you; ESV 11 and "'On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'" MSG 11 they will catch you; you won't so much as stub your toe on a stone'?" ESV 12 And Jesus answered him, "It is said, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'" MSG 12 "Yes," said Jesus, "and it's also written, 'Don't you dare tempt the Lord your God.'" ESV 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time. MSG 13 That completed the testing. The Devil retreated temporarily, lying in wait for another opportunity. ESV 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country. MSG 14 Jesus returned to Galilee powerful in the Spirit. News that he was back spread through the countryside. ESV 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. MSG 15 He taught in their meeting places to everyone's acclaim and pleasure. ESV 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. MSG 16 He came to Nazareth where he had been reared. As he always did on the Sabbath, he went to the meeting place. When he stood up to read, ESV 17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, MSG 17 he was handed the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. Unrolling the scroll, he found the place where it was written, ESV 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 proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, MSG 18 God's Spirit is on me; he's chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free, ESV 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." MSG 19 to announce, "This is God's year to act!" ESV 20 And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. MSG 20 He rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the assistant, and sat down. Every eye in the place was on him, intent. ESV 21 And he began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing." MSG 21 Then he started in, "You've just heard Scripture make history. It came true just now in this place." ESV 22 And all spoke well of him and marveled at the gracious words that were coming from his mouth. And they said, "Is not this Joseph's son?" MSG 22 All who were there, watching and listening, were surprised at how well he spoke. But they also said, "Isn't this Joseph's son, the one we've known since he was a youngster?" ESV 23 And he said to them, "Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, 'Physician, heal yourself.' What we have heard you did at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well." MSG 23 He answered, "I suppose you're going to quote the proverb, 'Doctor, go heal yourself. Do here in your hometown what we heard you did in Capernaum.' ESV 24 And he said, "Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown. MSG 24 Well, let me tell you something: No prophet is ever welcomed in his hometown. ESV 25 But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were shut up three years and six months, and a great famine came over all the land, MSG 25 Isn't it a fact that there were many widows in Israel at the time of Elijah during that three and a half years of drought when famine devastated the land, ESV 26 and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. MSG 26 but the only widow to whom Elijah was sent was in Sarepta in Sidon? ESV 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian." MSG 27 And there were many lepers in Israel at the time of the prophet Elisha but the only one cleansed was Naaman the Syrian." ESV 28 When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. MSG 28 That set everyone in the meeting place seething with anger. ESV 29 And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. MSG 29 They threw him out, banishing him from the village, then took him to a mountain cliff at the edge of the village to throw him to his doom, ESV 30 But passing through their midst, he went away. MSG 30 but he gave them the slip and was on his way. ESV 31 And he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the Sabbath, MSG 31 He went down to Capernaum, a village in Galilee. He was teaching the people on the Sabbath. ESV 32 and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word possessed authority. MSG 32 They were surprised and impressed - his teaching was so forthright, so confident, so authoritative, not the quibbling and quoting they were used to. ESV 33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, MSG 33 In the meeting place that day there was a man demonically disturbed. He screamed, ESV 34 "Ha!What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God." MSG 34 "Ho! What business do you have here with us, Jesus? Nazarene! I know what you're up to. You're the Holy One of God and you've come to destroy us!" ESV 35 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm. MSG 35 Jesus shut him up: "Quiet! Get out of him!" The demonic spirit threw the man down in front of them all and left. The demon didn't hurt him. ESV 36 And they were all amazed and said to one another, "What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!" MSG 36 That set everyone back on their heels, whispering and wondering, "What's going on here? Someone whose words make things happen? Someone who orders demonic spirits to get out and they go?" ESV 37 And reports about him went out into every place in the surrounding region. MSG 37 Jesus was the talk of the town. ESV 38 And he arose and left the synagogue and entered Simon's house. Now Simon's mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they appealed to him on her behalf. MSG 38 He left the meeting place and went to Simon's house. Simon's mother-in-law was running a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. ESV 39 And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she rose and began to serve them. MSG 39 He stood over her, told the fever to leave - and it left. Before they knew it, she was up getting dinner for them. ESV 40 Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. MSG 40 When the sun went down, everyone who had anyone sick with some ailment or other brought them to him. One by one he placed his hands on them and healed them. ESV 41 And demons also came out of many, crying, "You are the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ. MSG 41 Demons left in droves, screaming, "Son of God! You're the Son of God!" But he shut them up, refusing to let them speak because they knew too much, knew him to be the Messiah. ESV 42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, MSG 42 He left the next day for open country. But the crowds went looking and, when they found him, clung to him so he couldn't go on. ESV 43 but he said to them, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose." MSG 43 He told them, "Don't you realize that there are yet other villages where I have to tell the Message of God's kingdom, that this is the work God sent me to do?" ESV 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea. MSG 44 Meanwhile he continued preaching in the meeting places of Galilee.
