SCRIPTURE:  MATTHEW 4:1-11 (NIV)

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness 

1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted [a] by the devil. 

 

2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 

 

3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

 

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

 

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 

 

6 “If you are the Son of God,” 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. ’[c]”

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]”

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 

 

9 “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! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. ’[e]”

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