Mateus 4

1 Then the Jesus was led into the desert by the spirit, to be tempted by the accuser.

2 And fasting days forty and nights forty, after he was hungry.

3 And coming to him the temper, said: If a son thou be of the God, speak, that the stones these loaves may become.

4 He but answering said: It is written: Not by bread alone shall live a man; but by every word proceeding from mouth of God.

5 Then takes him the accuser into the holy city, and places him on the wing of the temple,

6 and saying to him: if a son thou be of the God, cast thyself down; it is written for: That to the messengers of him he will give charge of thee; and on hands they shall raise thee, lest thou strikes against a stone the foot of thee.

7 Said to him the Jesus: Again it is written: Not thou shalt put to the proof Lord the God of thee.

8 Again takes him the accuser into a mountain high exceedingly, and shows to him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them,

9 and says to him: These all to thee I will give, if falling down thou wilt do homage to me.

10 Then says to him the Jesus: Go thou behind of me, adversary; it is written for: Lord the God of thee thou shalt worship, and to him only thou shalt render service.

11 Then leaves him the accuser; and lo, messengers came and ministered to him.

12 Hearing now the Jesus, that John was delivered up, he withdrew into the Galilee.

13 And having left the Nazareth, coming dwelt at Capernaum the by the sea–side, in borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim;

14 that might be fulfilled the word spoken through Esaias the prophet, saying:

15 Land of Zabulon and land Nephthalim way of the sea by the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

16 The people who are sitting in darkness saw a light great; and to those sitting in a region even a shade of death, a light has arisen to them.

17 From that time began the Jesus to proclaim, and to say: Reform; has come nigh for the royal dignity of the heavens.

18 Walking and by the sea of the Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon the called Peter, and Andrew the brother of him, casting a fishing–net into the sea; they were for fishers.

19 And he says to them: Come behind of me, and I will make you fishers of men.

20 They and immediately leaving the nets, followed him.

21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brothers, James the of the Zebedee and John the brother of him in the ship with Zebedee of the father of them, mending the nets of them; and called them.

22 They and forthwith leaving the ship and the father of them, followed him.

23 And went about all the Galilee the Jesus, teaching in the synagogues of them, and preaching the glad tidings of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every malady among the people.

24 And went the report of him into all the Syria; and they brought to him all the sick having, various diseases and torments seized with, and demoniacs, and lunaties, and paralytics; and he cured them.

25 And followed to him crowds great from the Galilee, and Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond of the Jordan.
