Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness
1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
3 The tempter came to him and said,
“If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4 Jesus answered,
“It is written:
‘Man shall not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city
and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.
6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said,
“throw yourself down. For it is written:
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written:
‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain
and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour.
9 “All this I will give you,” he said,
“if you will bow down and worship me.”
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written:
‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”
11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
