1 Then Jesus was led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tried by the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he afterward was hungry.
3 And the tempter came and said to him, If you are the Son of God, say that these stones may become bread.
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man will not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil takes him into the holy city; and he set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 and says to him, If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down: for it is written, He will give his angels charge concerning you: and, On their hands they will bear you up, Lest perhaps you dash your foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said to him, Again it is written, You will not make trial of Yahweh your God.
8 Again, the devil takes him to an exceedingly high mountain, and shows him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 and he said to him, All these things I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.
10 Then Jesus says to him, Go, Satan: for it is written, You will worship Yahweh your God, and you will serve only him.
11 Then the devil leaves him; and look, angels came and were serving him.
12 Now when he heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew into Galilee.
13 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife.
14 For John said to him, It is not lawful for you to have her.
15 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
