The Temptation of Jesus1 a Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness b to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after He had c fasted forty days and forty nights, He ▼
▼ Lit later became; or afterward becamethen became hungry. 3 And e the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the f Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘ g Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’” 5 Then the devil took Him into h the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘ i He will command His angels concerning You’;
‘On their hands they will bear You up,
So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus said to him, ▼
▼ Lit Again“On the other hand, it is written, ‘ k You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 8 l Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9 and he said to Him, m “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and ▼
▼ Lit prostrate Yourselfworship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘ o You shall worship the Lord your God, and ▼
▼ Or fulfill religious duty to Himserve Him only.’” 11 Then the devil left Him; and behold q angels came and began to minister to Him.

▼ Or Toward the seaBy the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the ▼
▼ Lit nations, usually non-JewishGentiles—
16 x “The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light,
And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them a Light dawned.”
17 y From that time Jesus began to ▼
▼ Or proclaimpreach and say, aa “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
The First Disciples18 ab Now as Jesus was walking by ac the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers ad Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 And He said to them, ▼
▼ Lit Come here after Me“Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 21 Going on from there He saw two other brothers ▼
▼ Or Jacob; James is the Eng form of Jacob, ag James the son of Zebedee, and ▼
▼ Gr Joannes, Heb JohananJohn his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
