Luke 4:1Luke 4:13


5. His Test

1 And 1Jesus, full of the 2aHoly Spirit, returned from the bJordan and was led 3by the cSpirit in the dwilderness, while being tempted for forty days by the devil.

2 And He did not eat anything in those days, and when they were concluded, He became hungry.

3 And the devil said to Him, If You are the Son of God, speak to this stone that it become bread.

4 And Jesus answered him, It is written, a"Man shall not live on bread 1alone.''

5 And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said to Him, To You I will give all this aauthority and their glory, because to me it 1has been delivered, and to whomever I want I give it.

7 If You therefore worship before me, it shall all be Yours.

8 And Jesus answered and said to 1him, It is written, a"You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you 2serve.''

9 And he led Him into Jerusalem and set Him on the 1wing of the temple and said to Him, If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down from here;

10 For it is written, a"To His angels He shall give charge concerning You to protect You,

11 And on their hands they shall bear You up, lest You strike Your foot against a stone.''

12 And Jesus answered and said to him, It is said, a"You shall not 1test the Lord your God.''

13 And when the devil had concluded every temptation, he went away from Him 1until an opportune time.
