Luke 4

CHAPTER 4

Jesus is Tested by the Devil

And Jesus [3spirit 2of holy 1full] returned from the Jordan; and he was led by the spirit into the wilderness, [2days 1forty] being tested by the devil. And he did not eat anything during [2days 1those]. And with their being completed, afterwards he hungered. And [3said 4to him 1the 2devil], If you are Son of God, tell this stone that it become bread! And Jesus answered to him, saying, It has been written that, Not by bread alone shall [2live 1man], but by every word of God. And [3led 4him 1the 2devil] into [2mountain 1a high], to show to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And [3said 4to him 1the 2devil], I shall give to you this authority all together, and their glory; for it has been delivered to me, and to whom ever I should want to give it. You then, if you should do obeisance before me, [2will be 3yours 1all]. And answering to him Jesus said, Go behind me Satan! for it has been written, You shall do obeisance to the Lord your God, and to him alone shall you serve. And he led him unto Jerusalem, and stood him upon the border of the temple, and said to him, If [2the 3son 1you are] of God, throw yourself from here below! 10 For it has been written that, To his angels he shall give charge concerning you, to guard you; 11 and upon hands they shall lift you, lest at any time [2should stumble 3against 4a stone 1your foot]. 12 And answering [2said 3to him 1Jesus] that, It has been said, Do not put to test the Lord your God! 13 And [3having completed 4all 5the test 1the 2devil], left from him until an occasion.

Jesus Begins His Ministry

14 And Jesus returned in the power of the spirit into Galilee; and a reputation went forth unto the entire place round about concerning him. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being extolled by all. 16 And he came unto Nazareth, of which he was reared. And he entered (according to the thing accustomed for him in the day of the Sabbaths) into the synagogue, and he rose up to read. 17 And there was given over to him a scroll of Isaiah the prophet. And unrolling the scroll, he found the place of which it was having been written, 18 Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because of which he anointed me to announce good news to the poor; he has sent me to heal the ones being broken in heart, to proclaim to captives a release, and to blind a recovery of sight, to send [2to the ones being devastated 1a release]; 19 to proclaim [2year 3of the Lord 1the accepted]. 20 And having rolled up the scroll, having given it back to the assistant, he sat down. And all [2in 3the 4synagogue 1eyes] were gazing upon him. 21 And he began to say to them that, Today [2has been fulfilled 1this scripture] in your ears. 22 And all bore witness to him, and marveled over the words of favor, the ones going forth from out of his mouth. And they said, [2not 3this 1Is] the son of Joseph? 23 And he said to them, Assuredly you shall say to me this parable, Physician attend to yourself! As many things as we heard taking place in Capernaum, do also here in your fatherland! 24 And he said, Amen I say to you that, Not one prophet is accepted in his fatherland. 25 [2in 3truth 1And] I say to you, [2many 3widows 1There were] in the days of Elijah in Israel, when [3was locked 1the 2heaven] for [2years 1three] and [2months 1six], as [3took place 2famine 1a great] upon all the land. 26 And to not one of them was Elijah sent, except unto Sarepta of Sidon, to [2woman 1a widow]. 27 And [2many 3lepers 1there were] in the time of Elisha the prophet in Israel, and not one of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian. 28 And they were all filled with rage in the synagogue, hearing these things. 29 And having risen up, they cast him outside the city, and led him unto a brow of the mountain upon which their city had been built, so as to fling him downwards. 30 But he going through the midst of them went away. 31 And he went down unto Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbaths. 32 And they were overwhelmed at his teaching, for [3with 4authority 2was 1his word].

The Unclean Spirits Come Forth

33 And in the synagogue was a man having a spirit [2demon 1of an unclean], and he shouted aloud [2voice 1with a great], 34 saying, Alas, what is it to us and to you, Jesus -- Nazarene? Are you come to destroy us? I know you, who you are, the holy one of God. 35 And [2reproached 3him 1Jesus], saying, Be halted, and come forth from him! And [3having tossed 4him 1the 2demon] into the midst, came forth from him, in nothing having hurt him. 36 And there became a stupefaction upon all, and they conversed together with one another, saying, What word is this, that with authority and power he gives orders to the unclean spirits, and they come forth? 37 And [4went forth 1the sound 2concerning 3him] unto every place round about.

Jesus Heals Many

38 And rising up from out of the synagogue, he entered into the house of Simon. [2the 3mother-in-law 1And] of Simon was constrained [2fever 1by a great]; and they asked him concerning her. 39 And standing above her, he reproached the fever; and it left her. And immediately rising up she served to them. 40 And at the going down of the sun, all as many as had ones being weak [2diseases 1by various] led them to him; and [6one 5each 7of them 2the 3hands 1having placed 4upon], he cured them. 41 And there came forth also demons from many, crying out and saying that, You are the Christ the son of God. And reproaching, he did not allow them to speak; for they knew [3the 4Christ 1him 2to be]. 42 And becoming day, having come forth, he went into a desolate place. And the multitudes sought him, and came unto him, and constrained him to not go from them. 43 And he said to them that, Also to the other cities [2to announce good news 1it is necessary for me] -- the kingdom of God. For in this I have been sent. 44 And he was proclaiming in the synagogues of the of Galilee.
