Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness[a] to be tempted by the devil. 2 After he fasted forty days and forty nights he was famished.[b]3 The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.”[c]4 But he answered,[d] “It is written, ‘Man[e]does not live[f]by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”[g]5 Then the devil took him to the holy city,[h] had him stand[i] on the highest point[j] of the temple, 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you’[k] and ‘with their hands they will lift you up, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”[l]7 Jesus said to him, “Once again it is written: ‘You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.’”[m]8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their grandeur.[n]9 And he said to him, “I will give you all these things if you throw yourself to the ground and worship[o] me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go away,[p] Satan! For it is written: ‘You are to worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”[q]11 Then the devil left him, and angels[r] came and began ministering to his needs.
