The Enemy's Devices
|Matthew 4 (NKJV™)|
|1||Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.|
|2||And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.|
|3||Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."|
|4||But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'"|
|5||Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him 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: 'He shall give His angels charge over you,' and, 'In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.'"|
|7||Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God.'"|
|8||Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.|
|9||And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."|
|10||Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.'"|
|11||Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.|
