Matthew 4
A Faithful Version

1Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit in order to be tempted by the devil. 2And when He had fasted for forty days and forty nights, afterwards He was famished. 3And when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." 4But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. ' "

5Then the devil took Him to the holy city and set Him upon the edge of the temple,

6And said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down; for it is written, 'He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and they shall bear You up in their hands, lest You strike Your foot against a stone. ' "

7Jesus said to him, "Again, it is written, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God. ' "

8After that, the devil took Him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, 9And said to Him, "All these things will I give You, if You will fall down and worship me." 10Then Jesus said to him, "Begone, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve. ' " 11Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

12Now when Jesus had heard that John was put in prison, He went into Galilee. 13And after leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is on the seaside, on the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim; 14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, saying,

15"The land of Zabulon and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

16The people who were sitting in darkness have seen a great light; and to those who were sitting in the realm and shadow of death, light has sprung up."

17From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

18And as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a large net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." 20Then they immediately left their nets and followed Him. 21And after leaving there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22And they immediately left the ship and their father and followed Him.

23And Jesus went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every bodily ailment among the people.

24Then His fame went out into all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were sick, oppressed by various diseases and torments, and possessed by demons, and lunatics, and paralytics; and He healed them. 25And great multitudes followed Him from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
