1 Then Jesus was led up to the wilderness by the Spirit, to be tempted by the Devil,
2 and having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards he did hunger.
3 And the Tempter having come to him said, 'If Son you are of God -- speak that these stones may become loaves.'
4 But he answering said, 'It has been written, Not upon bread alone does man live, but upon every word coming forth from the mouth of God.'
5 Then does the Devil take him to the holy city, and does set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 and said to him, 'If Son you are of God -- cast yourself down, for it has been written, that, His messengers He shall charge concerning you, and on hands they shall bear you up, that you may not dash on a stone your foot.'
7 Jesus said to him again, 'It has been written, You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'
8 Again does the Devil take him to a very high mount, and does show to him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them,
9 and said to him, 'All these to you I will give, if falling down you may bow to me.'
10 Then said Jesus to him, 'Go -- Adversary, for it has been written, The Lord your God you shall bow to, and Him only you shall serve.'
11 Then does the Devil leave him, and lo, messengers came and were ministering to him.
12 And Jesus having heard that John was delivered up, did withdraw to Galilee,
13 and having left Nazareth, having come, he dwelt at Capernaum that is by the sea, in the borders of Zebulun and Naphtalim,
14 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
15 'Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations! --
16 The people that is sitting in darkness saw a great light, and to those sitting in a region and shadow of death -- light arose to them.'
17 From that time began Jesus to proclaim and to say, 'Reform you, for come near has the reign of the heavens.'
18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon named Peter and Andrew his brother, casting a drag into the sea -- for they were fishers --
19 and he said to them, 'Come you after me, and I will make you fishers of men,'
20 and they, immediately, having left the nets, did follow him.
21 And having advanced from there, he saw other two brothers, James of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, refitting their nets, and he called them,
22 and they, immediately, having left the boat and their father, did follow him.
23 And Jesus was going about all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the reign, and healing every disease, and every malady among the people,
24 and his fame went forth to all Syria, and they brought to him all having ailments, pressed with manifold sicknesses and pains, and demoniacs, and lunatics, and paralytics, and he healed them.
25 And there followed him many multitudes from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
