King James VersionMatthew4


1 Then was Je­sus led up of the Spir­it into the wilder­ness to be tempt­ed of the dev­il. 2 And when he had fast­ed forty days and forty nights, he was af­ter­ward an hun­gred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, com­mand that these stones be made bread. 4 But 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. 5 Then the dev­il taketh him up into the holy city, and set­teth him on a pin­na­cle of the tem­ple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be 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 bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Je­sus said unto him, It is writ­ten again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the dev­il taketh him up into an ex­ceed­ing high moun­tain, and sheweth him all the king­doms of the world, and the glo­ry of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and wor­ship me. 10 Then saith Je­sus unto him, Get thee hence, Sa­tan: for it is writ­ten, Thou shalt wor­ship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the dev­il leaveth him, and, be­hold, an­gels came and min­is­tered unto him. 12 Now when Je­sus had heard that John was cast into prison, he de­part­ed into Galilee; 13 And leav­ing Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Ca­per­naum, which is upon the sea coast, in the bor­ders of Zab­u­lon and Neph­thal­im: 14 That it might be ful­filled which was spo­ken by Esa­ias the prophet, say­ing, 15 The land of Zab­u­lon, and the land of Neph­thal­im, by the way of the sea, be­yond Jor­dan, Galilee of the Gen­tiles; 16 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. 17 From that time Je­sus be­gan to preach, and to say, Re­pent: for the king­dom of heav­en is at hand. 18 And 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 fish­ers. 19 And he saith unto them, Fol­low me, and I will make you fish­ers of men. 20 And they straight­way left their nets, and fol­lowed him. 21 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. 22 And they im­me­di­ate­ly left the ship and their fa­ther, and fol­lowed him. 23 And 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. 24 And his fame went through­out all Syr­ia: and they brought unto him all sick peo­ple that were tak­en with divers dis­eases and tor­ments, and those which were pos­sessed with dev­ils, and those which were lu­natick, and those that had the pal­sy; and he healed them. 25 And there fol­lowed him great mul­ti­tudes of peo­ple from Galilee, and from De­capo­lis, and from Jerusalem, and from Ju­daea, and from be­yond Jor­dan.
