Luke 4


4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Spirit, returned from
 Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
4:2 Being forty days tempted by the devil. And in those days he
 ate nothing; and when they were ended, he was afterward hungry.
4:3 And the devil said to him, If thou art the Son of God,
 command this stone that it be made bread.
4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man
 shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
4:5 And the devil taking him up upon a high mountain, showed to
 him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
4:6 And the devil said to him, All this power will I give thee,
 and the glory of them: for that is delivered to me, and to
 whomsoever I will, I give it.
4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
4:8 And Jesus answered and said to him, Get thee behind me,
 Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
 and him only shalt thou serve.
4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle
 of the temple, and said to him, If thou art the son of God,
 cast thyself down from hence.
4:10 For it is written, He will give his angels charge over
 thee, to keep thee:
4:11 And in [their] hands they will bear thee up, lest at any
 time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
4:12 And Jesus answering, said to him, It is said, Thou shalt
 not tempt the Lord thy God.
4:13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he
 departed from him for a season.
4:14 And Jesus returned in the power of the spirit into Galilee:
 and there went out a fame of him through all the surrounding
 region.
4:15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and,
 as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath,
 and stood up to read.
4:17 And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet
 Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place
 where it was written,
4:18 The spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath
 anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me
 to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the
 captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at
 liberty them that are bruised,
4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave [it] again to the
 minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in
 the synagogue were fastened on him.
4:21 And he began to say to them, This day is this scripture
 fulfilled in your ears.
4:22 And all bore him testimony, and wondered at the gracious
 words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not
 this Joseph's son?
4:23 And he said to them, Ye will surely say to me this proverb,
 Physician, heal thyself: whatever we have heard done in
 Capernaum, do also here in thy country.
4:24 And he said, Verily I say to you, No prophet is accepted in
 his own country.
4:25 But I tell you in truth, many widows were in Israel in the
 days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut three years and six
 months when great famine was throughout all the land:
4:26 But to none of them was Elijah sent, save to Sarepta, [a
 city] of Sidon, to a woman [that was] a widow.
4:27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the
 prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the
 Syrian.
4:28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these
 things, were filled with wrath,
4:29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him to
 the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they
 might cast him down headlong.
4:30 But he passing through the midst of them, went away,
4:31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught
 them on the sabbath-days.
4:32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was
 with power.
4:33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an
 unclean demon; and he cried out with a loud voice,
4:34 Saying, Let [us] alone; what have we to do with thee, Jesus
 of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou
 art, the Holy One of God.
4:35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out
 of him. And when the demon had thrown him in the midst, he came
 out of him, and hurt him not.
4:36 And they were all amazed, and spoke among themselves,
 saying, What a word [is] this! for with authority and power he
 commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
4:37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the
 surrounding country.
4:38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's
 house. And the mother of Simon's wife was taken with a violent
 fever; and they besought him for her.
4:39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left
 her: and immediately she arose and ministered to them.
4:40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick
 with divers diseases, brought them to him: and he laid his
 hands on every one of them, and healed them.
4:41 And demons also came out of many, crying out, and saying,
 Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking [them],
 suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.
4:42 And when it was day, he departed, and went into a desert
 place; and the people sought him, and came to him, and stayed
 him, that he should not depart from them.
4:43 And he said to them, I must preach the kingdom of God to
 other cities also, for therefore am I sent.
4:44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
