3 And athe tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the bSon of God, command that these stones become bread.”

4 But He answered and said, It is written, ‘aMan shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’ ”

aHe will command His angels concerning You’;


On their hands they will bear You up,

So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’ ”

7 Jesus said to him, 1On the other hand, it is written, ‘aYou shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’ ”

8 aAgain, the devil * took Him to a very high mountain and * showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory;

9 and he said to Him, “aAll these things I will give You, if You fall down and 1worship me.”

10 Then Jesus * said to him, Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘aYou shall worship the Lord your God, and 1serve Him only.’ ”
