Luke 4:1; Luke 4:2–15

The Temptation of Jesus

sAnd Jesus, tfull of the Holy Spirit, ureturned from the Jordan and was led vby the Spirit in the wilderness


for wforty days, xbeing tempted by the devil. wAnd he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, yhe was hungry. The devil said to him, If you are zthe Son of God, command athis stone to become bread. And Jesus answered him, bIt is written, cMan shall not live by bread alone. dAnd the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, To you eI will give all this authority and their glory, efor it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours. And Jesus answered him, fIt is written,

gYou shall worship the Lord your God,

and hhim only shall you serve.

iAnd he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, If you are jthe Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written,

kHe will command his angels concerning you,

to guard you,

11 and

kOn their hands they will bear you up,

lest you strike your foot against a stone.

12 And Jesus answered him, It is said, lYou shall not mput the Lord your God to the test. 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him nuntil an opportune time.
