1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the
wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty
nights, afterward He was hungry.

3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If
You are the Son of God, command that these stones
become bread.”

4 But He answered and said, “It is written, `Man
shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
proceeds from the mouth of God.’ “

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set
Him 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 shall give His angels charge over you,’ and,
`In [their] hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ “

7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, `You shall not
tempt the Lord your God.’ “

8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly
high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the
world and their glory.

9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if
You will fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan!
For it is written, `You shall worship the Lord your God,
and Him only you shall serve.’ “

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came
and ministered to Him.
