Matthew 4 ©

1 Christ, having fasted forty days in the wilderness, is tempted by the devil. 11 Afterwards ministered unto by the angels. 12 Leaving Nazareth, He goes to dwell at Capernaum. 17 Begins to preach. 18 Calls Peter and Andrew. 21 James and John, who leaving all, follow Him. 23 Walking through Galilee, He teaches in the Synagogues and heals all manner of diseases.


THEN1 wasa Jesus led up 2of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the 3devil.


And when he had 4fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.


And when the 5tempter came to him, he said, If thou be 6the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.


But he answered and said, It is written, Manb shall not live by bread alone, but by every 7word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.


Then the devil taketh him up into the 8holy city, and setteth him on a 9pinnacle of the temple,


And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, Hec shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they *shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.


Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thoud shalt not tempte the Lord thy God.


Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and 11sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;


And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.


Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, 12Satan: for it is written, Thouf shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.


Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, 13angels came and ministered unto him.


¶Now when Jesus had heard that Johng was 14cast into prison, he departed intoh Galilee;


And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:


That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,


Thei land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, 15beyond Jordan, Galilee of the 16Gentiles;


The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.


¶From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent:j for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.


¶Andk Jesus, walking by the 17sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a 18net into the sea: for they were fishers.


And he saith unto them, 19Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.


And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.


And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.


And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.


¶And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their 20synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing 21all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.


And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with diversl diseases and 22torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were 23lunatick, and those that had the 24palsy;m and he healed them.


And there followed him great 25multitudes of people from Galilee, and from 26Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
