The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lords and in his mighty power.t 11 Put on the full armor of God,u so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,v but against the rulers, against the authorities,w against the powersx of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.y 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God,z so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,a with the breastplate of righteousness in place,b 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.c 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith,d with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.e 17 Take the helmet of salvationf and the sword of the Spirit,g which is the word of God.h

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

4:1–11pp—Mk 1:12,13; Lk 4:1–13

4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempteda v by the devil.w After fasting forty days and forty nights,x he was hungry. The temptery came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God,z tell these stones to become bread.”

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ba

Then the devil took him to the holy cityb and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,”c he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“ ‘He will command his angels concerning you,

and they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’cd

Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’de

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan!f For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’eg

11 Then the devil left him,h and angels came and attended him.i
