4:1 Then was Jesus led by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be
tempted by the devil.
4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was
4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou art the
son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live
by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God.
4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth
him on a pinnacle of the temple,
4:6 And saith to him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thyself
down, for it is written, He shall give his angels charge
concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall uphold thee,
lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
4:7 Jesus said to him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt
the Lord thy God.
4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up upon an exceeding high
mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and
the glory of them,
4:9 And saith to him, All these things will I give thee, if thou
wilt fall down and worship me.
4:10 Then saith Jesus to him, Be gone, Satan: for it is written,
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou
4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and behold, angels came and
ministered to him.
4:12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he
departed into Galilee.
4:13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which
is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and
4:14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the
4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, [by] the
way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
4:16 The people who sat in darkness, saw great light; and to
them who sat in the region and shades of death, light hath
4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent:
for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren,
Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into
the sea: for they were fishers.
4:19 And he saith to them, Follow me, and I will make you
fishers of men.
4:20 And they immediately left [their] nets, and followed him.
4:21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James
[the son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a boat with
Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.
4:22 And they immediately left the boat, and their father, and
4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their
synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
healing all manner of sickness, and all manner of disease among
4:24 And his fame spread throughout all Syria: and they brought
to him all sick people that were taken with diverse diseases
and torments, and those who were possessed with demons, and
those who were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he
4:25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from
Galilee, and [from] Decapolis, and [from] Jerusalem, and [from]
Judea, and [from] beyond Jordan.
