ContextWilderness Temptation of Jesus
1And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungry. 3And the devil said to him, If you be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. 4And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. 5And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6And the devil said to him, All this power will I give you, and the glory of them: for that is delivered to me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7If you therefore will worship me, all shall be yours. 8And Jesus answered and said to him, Get you behind me, Satan: for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. 9And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, If you be the Son of God, cast yourself down from hence: 10For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you: 11And in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone. 12And Jesus answering said to him, It is said, You shall not tempt the Lord your God. 13And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
