The Temptation of Jesus

(A)And Jesus, (B)full of the Holy Spirit, (C)returned from the Jordan and was led (D)by the Spirit in the wilderness for (E)forty days, (F)being tempted by the devil. (G)And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, (H)he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are (I)the Son of God, command (J)this stone to become bread.” And Jesus answered him, (K)“It is written, (L)‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” (M)And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “To you (N)I will give all this authority and their glory, (O)for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” And Jesus answered him, (P)“It is written,

(Q)“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
    and (R)him only shall you serve.’”

(S)And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are (T)the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written,

(U)“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
    to guard you,’

11 and

(V)“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”

12 And Jesus answered him, “It is said, (W)‘You shall not (X)put the Lord your God to the test.’”

81 My soul (A)longs for your salvation;
    I (B)hope in your word.
82 My (C)eyes long for your promise;
    I ask, (D)“When will you comfort me?”
83 For I have (E)become like a (F)wineskin in the smoke,
    yet I have not forgotten your statutes.
84 (G)How long must your servant endure?[a]
    (H)When will you judge those who persecute me?
85 (I)The insolent have (J)dug pitfalls for me;
    they do not live according to your law.
86 All your commandments are (K)sure;
    they persecute me (L)with falsehood; (M)help me!
87 They have almost made an end of me on earth,
    but I have not forsaken your precepts.
88 In your steadfast love (N)give me life,
    that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth.
