4 And Jesus full of Holy Spirit returned from the Jordan, and was led in the Spirit in the desert
2 forty days,—being tempted by the adversary; and he did eat nothing in those days,—and when they were concluded he hungered.
3 And the adversary said to him—If thou art God’s Son speak unto this stone; that it become bread.
4 And Jesus made answer unto him—It is written: Not on bread alone shall man live.
5 And leading him up he shewed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in a moment of time.
6 And the adversary said to him—Unto thee will I give this authority all together, and their glory; because unto me hath it been delivered up, and to whomsoever I please I give it:
7 Thou therefore if thou wilt worship before me it shall all be thine.
8 And answering Jesus said to him—It is written: The Lord thy God shalt thou worship, And unto him alone render divine service.
9 And he led him into Jerusalem, and set him upon the pinnacle of the temple,—and said [to him]—If thou art God’s Son cast thyself from hence down;
10 for it is written—Unto his messengers will he give command concerning thee, To keep vigilant watch over thee,—
11 And On hands will they take thee up, Lest once thou strike against a stone thy foot.
12 And Jesus answering said to him—It is said: Thou shalt not put to the test the Lord thy God.
13 And having concluded every temptation the adversary departed from him until a fitting season.
14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee; and a report went out along the whole of the region concerning him;
15 and he began teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
16 And he came into Nazareth where he had been brought up, and entered according to his custom on the sabbath day into the synagogue,—and stood up to read.
17 And there was handed to him a scroll of the prophet Isaiah; and unfolding the scroll he found the place where it was written:
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he hath anointed me—To tell glad tidings unto the destitute; He hath sent me forth—To proclaim to captives a release, And to the blind a recovering of sight,—To send away the crushed with a release;
19 To proclaim the welcome year of the Lord.
20 And folding up the scroll he handed it to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were intently fixed upon him;
21 and he began to be saying to them—This day is fulfilled this scripture in your ears.
22 And all were bearing witness to him, and marvelling at the words of favour which were proceeding out of his mouth; and they were saying—Is not this the son of Joseph?
23 And he said unto them—By all means ye will speak to me this similitude: Physician! heal thyself,—Whatsoever things we have heard of coming to pass in Capernaum do here also in thine own country.
24 And he said—Verily I say unto you, No prophet is welcome in his own country.
25 And of a truth I say unto you—Many widows were in the days of Elijah in Israel When the heaven was shut up three years and six months, When there came a great famine upon all the land;
26 And unto none of them was Elijah sent Save unto Sarepta of Sidonia unto a woman that was a widow.
27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, And not one of them was cleansed Save Naaman the Syrian.
28 And all were filled with wrath in the synagogue, as they heard these things.
29 And rising up they thrust him forth outside the city, and led him as far as a brow of the hill on which their city was built,—so that they might throw him down headlong.
30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way.
31 And he came down into Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the sabbath;
32 and they were being struck with astonishment at his teaching, because with authority was his word.
33 And in the synagogue was a man having a spirit of an impure demon; and he cried out with a loud voice—
34 Let be! What have we in common with thee, O Jesus Nazarene! Hast thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art,—The Holy One of God.
35 And Jesus rebuked it, saying—Hold thy peace! and go forth from him. And the demon throwing him into the midst went forth from him, doing him no hurt.
36 And amazement came upon all, and they began to converse one with another, saying—What is this word that with authority and power he giveth orders unto the impure spirits, and they go forth?
37 And a noise concerning him began to go out into every place of the country around.
38 And rising up, from the synagogue he went into the house of Simon. Now the mother-in-law of Simon was in distress with a great fever; and they made request to him concerning her.
39 And standing over her he rebuked the fever, and it left her; and instantly arising she began to minister unto them.
40 But as the sun was going in they one and all as many as had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he upon each one of them laying his hands was curing them.
41 And demons also were going forth from many; crying aloud, and saying—Thou art the Son of God. And rebuking them he suffered them not be talking; because they knew him to be The Christ.
42 And when it was day going forth he journeyed into a desert place; and the multitudes were seeking after him, and they came unto him and would have detained him, that he might not depart from them.
43 But he said unto them—To the other cities also I must needs tell the good-news of the kingdom of God, because hereunto was I sent forth.
44 And he was proclaiming in the cities of Judaea.
