C. Tested

1 Then 1Jesus was led up into the awilderness by the Spirit to be 2btempted by the 3cdevil.

2 And when He had afasted 1bforty days and forty nights, afterward He became chungry.

3 And the 1atempter came and said to Him, If You are the 2bSon of God, speak that these 3stones may become loaves of bread.

4 But He answered and said, 1It is written, 2a"Man shall not live on 3bread alone, but on every 4bword that proceeds out through the 5mouth of God.''

5 Then the devil took Him into the aholy city and set Him on the 1wing of the 2btemple,

6 And said to Him, If You are the aSon of God, 1cast Yourself down; for 2it is written, b"To His angels He shall give charge concerning You, and on their hands they shall bear You up, lest You strike Your foot against a stone.''

7 Jesus said to him, 1Again, it is written, a"You shall not 2test the Lord your God.''

8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the 1akingdoms of the bworld and their cglory.

9 And he said to Him, 1All these will I give You if You will fall down and aworship me.

10 Then Jesus said to him, Go away, 1aSatan! For it is written, b"You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him 2conly shall you serve.''

11 Then the devil 1left Him, and behold, 2aangels came and ministered to Him.
