Matthew 4

1Then was Jesus led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungry. 3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou art the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4But 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. 5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6And 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. 7Jesus said to him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
tempt: or, try, or, put to trial, or, proof
8Again, the devil taketh him up upon an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9And saith to him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10Then saith Jesus to him, Away with thee, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered to him.

12Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
cast...: or, delivered up
13And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zebulun and Naphtali: 14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, 15The land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 16The people who sat in darkness saw great light; and to them who sat in the region and shadow of death light hath shone. 17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

18And 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 fishermen. 19And he saith to them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20And they immediately left their nets, and followed him. 21And going on from there, 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. 22And they immediately left the boat and their father, and followed him.

23And 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 the people. 24And his fame spread throughout all Syria: and they brought to him all sick people that were sick with various diseases and torments, and those who were possessed with demons, and those who were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 25And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
