Luke 4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And Jesus full of the Holy Ghost turned again from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into desert

forty days, and was tempted of the devil, and [he] ate nothing in those days; and when those days were ended, he hungered.

And the devil said to him, If thou art God's Son [If thou be God's Son], say to this stone, that it be made bread.

And Jesus answered to him, It is written, That a man liveth not in bread alone, but in every word of God.

And the devil led him into an high hill, and showed to him all the realms of the world in a moment of time;

and said to him, I shall give to thee all this power, and the glory of them, for to me they be given, and to whom I will, I give them;

therefore if thou fall down, and worship before me [therefore if thou shalt worship before me], all things shall be thine.

And Jesus answered, and said to him, It is written, Thou shalt worship thy Lord God [Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God], and to him alone thou shalt serve.

And he led him into Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, If thou art God's Son, send thyself from hence down;

10 for it is written, For he hath commanded to his angels of thee, that they keep thee in all thy ways,

11 and that they shall take thee in hands, lest peradventure thou hurt thy foot at a stone. [and for in hands they shall take thee, lest peradventure thou hurt thy foot on a stone.]

12 And Jesus answered, and said to him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt thy Lord God. [And Jesus answering saith to him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.]

13 And when every temptation was ended, the fiend went away from him [the devil went away from him] for a time.

14 And Jesus turned again in the virtue of the Spirit into Galilee, and the fame went forth of him through all the country.

15 And he taught in the synagogues of them, and was magnified of all men.

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he was nourished, and he entered after his custom in the sabbath day into a synagogue [into the synagogue], and rose to read.

17 And the book of Esaias, the prophet, was taken to him; and as he turned the book, he found a place, where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, for which thing he anointed me; he sent me to preach to poor men, to heal contrite men in heart, and to preach remission to prisoners, and sight to blind men[a], and to deliver broken men into remission;

19 to preach the year of the Lord pleasant, and the day of yielding again [to preach the year of the Lord accepted, or pleasant, and the day of retribution, or yielding again.]

20 And when he had closed the book, he gave [it] again to the minister, and sat; and the eyes of all men in the synagogue were beholding into him.

21 And he began to say to them, For in this day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.

22 And all men gave witnessing to him, and wondered in the words of grace, that came forth of his mouth [that came out of his mouth]. And they said, Whether this is not the son of Joseph?

23 And he said to them, Soothly ye shall say to me this likeness, Physician, heal thyself. The Pharisees said to Jesus, How great things have we heard done in Capernaum, do thou also here in thy country. [And he said to them, Soothly ye shall say to me this likeness, Leech, heal thyself. How great things have we heard done in Capernaum, make thou and here in thy country.]

24 And he said, Truly I say to you, that no prophet is received in his own country. [Soothly he saith, Truly I say to you, for no man prophet is accepted, or received, in his own country.]

25 In truth I say to you, that many widows were in the days of Elias, the prophet, in Israel, when heaven was closed three years and six months, when great hunger was made in all the earth [when great hunger was made on all earth, or every land];

26 and to none of them was Elias sent, but into Sarepta of Sidon, to a woman a widow.

27 And many mesels were in Israel, under Eliseus, the prophet, and none of them was cleansed, but Naaman of Syria.

28 And all in the synagogue hearing these things, were filled with wrath.

29 And they rose up, and drove him out [and cast him out] without the city, and led him to the top of the hill on which their city was builded, to cast him down [that they should cast him down].

30 But Jesus passed, and went through the middle of them; [Soothly Jesus passing went through the middle of them;]

31 and he came down into Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and there he taught them in [the] sabbaths.

32 And they were astonished in his teaching, for his word was in power.

33 And in their synagogue was a man having an unclean fiend, and he cried with great voice, [And in the synagogue was a man having an unclean fiend, and cried with great voice,]

34 and said [saying], Suffer, what to us and to thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us [to lose us]? I know thee, that thou art the holy of God.

35 And Jesus blamed him, and said [saying], Wax dumb, and go out from him. And when the fiend had cast him forth into the middle, he went away from him, and he harmed him nothing.

36 And dread was made in all men, and they spake together, and said [saying], What is this word, for in power and virtue he commandeth to unclean spirits, and they go out?

37 And the fame was published of him into each place of the country.

38 And Jesus rose up from the synagogue, and entered into the house of Simon [Forsooth Jesus rising of the synagogue, entered into the house of Simon]; and the mother of Simon's wife was holden with a great fevers, and they prayed him for her.

39 And Jesus stood over her, and commanded to the fever, and it left her; and at once she rose up, and served them [and anon she rising ministered to them].

40 And when the sun went down, all that had sick men with diverse languors, led them to him; and he set his hands on each by themselves, and healed them. [Forsooth when the sun went down, all that had sick men with diverse languishings, or aches, led them to him; and he, putting hands to each by himself, healed them.]

41 And fiends went out from many, and cried, and said [crying, and saying], For thou art the Son of God. And he blamed, and suffered them not to speak [And he blaming suffered not them to speak], for they knew him, that he was Christ.

42 And when the day was come, he went out, and went into a desert place; and the people sought him, and they came to him [and they came unto him], and they held him, that he should not go away from them.

43 To whom he said, For also to other cities it behooveth me to preach the kingdom of God, for therefore I am sent [for thereto I am sent].

44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Luke 4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Jesus is led into the wilderness and fasts all the time of his temptation. He overcomes the devil, and goes into Galilee to preach. At Nazareth the Jews despise him. In Capernaum the devils recognize and identify him, he enters Peter’s house and heals his mother-in-law, and does great miracles.

Jesus, then full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was carried by the Spirit into the wilderness, and was for forty days tempted by the devil. And during those days he ate nothing. And when they were ended, he was afterwards hungered. And the devil said to him, If you are the Son of God, command this stone to be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

And the devil took him up into a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, even in the twinkling of an eye. And the devil said to him, All this power I will give you, every whit, and the glory of these kingdoms. For it has been delivered to me, and to whomever I wish, I give it. If you therefore will worship me, they shall all be yours.

Jesus answered him and said, Away from me, Satan! For it is written: You shall honour the Lord your God, and him only serve.

And the devil carried him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple and said to him, If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down from here. 10 For it is written: He will give his angels charge over you, to keep you, 11 and with their hands they will hold you up so that you do not dash your foot against a stone.

12 Jesus answered and said to him, It is said: You shall not tempt the Lord your God.

13 And as soon as the devil had ended all his temptations, he departed from him for a season.

14 Jesus returned by the power of the Spirit into Galilee, and there went a renown of him throughout all the region round about. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, and was commended by all.

16 And he went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and as his custom was, went into the synagogue on the Sabbath days, and stood up to read. 17 And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the scroll, he found the place where it was written: 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me. To preach the gospel to the poor he has sent me, and to heal the broken-hearted; to preach deliverance to the captive, and sight to the blind, and freely to set at liberty those who are bruised, 19 and to preach the favoured year of the Lord.

20 And he rolled up the scroll and returned it to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began and said to them, This day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.

22 And they all witnessed him, and wondered at the gracious words that proceeded out of his mouth, and said, Is this not Joseph’s son?

23 And he said to them, You may very well say to me this maxim: Physician, heal thyself; the things that we heard were done in Capernaum, do the same here likewise in your own country.

24 And he said, Truly I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when heaven was shut for three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 but to none of them was Elijah sent save into Sarepta, a city of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and yet none of them was healed except Naaman of Syria.

28 And as many as were in the synagogue, when they heard that, were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and thrust him out of the city, and led him even to the edge of the hill on which their town was built, to cast him down headlong. 30 But he went his way even through the midst of them, 31 and descended into Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and there taught them on the Sabbath days. 32 And they were astonished at his instruction, for his preaching was with power.

33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean devil, who cried with a loud voice, saying, 34 Let me alone! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know you, who you are: even the Holy One of God.

35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace and come out of him! And the devil threw the man in the midst of them and came out of him, and did not hurt him.

36 And fear came on them all, and they spoke among themselves, saying, What manner of thing is this? For with authority and power he commands the foul spirits, and they come out. 37 And the news of him spread abroad through all places of the country round about.

38 And he rose up and departed from the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s mother-in-law was taken with a great fever, and they made intercession to him for her. 39 And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and ministered to them.

40 When the sun was down, all the people that had sick folk taken with different diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. 41 And devils also came out of many of them, crying out and saying, You are Christ, the Son of God!

But he rebuked the devils, and would not permit them to speak, for they knew that he was Christ.

42 As soon as it was day, he departed and went away into an isolated place. And the people sought him out and came to him, and kept him from leaving them. 43 But he said to them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other places also, for that is why I have been sent.

44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Luke 4 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 Of Christ’s temptation, and fasting. 16 He teacheth in Nazareth to the great admiration of all. 24 A Prophet that teacheth in his own country is condemned. 33 One possessed of the devil is cured. 38 Peter’s mother-in-law is healed, 40 and divers sick persons are restored to health. 41 The devils acknowledge Christ.

And [a]Jesus full of the holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by that Spirit into the wilderness,

And was there forty days tempted of the devil, and in those days he did eat nothing, but when they were ended, he afterward was hungry.

[b]Then the devil said unto him, If thou be the son of God, command this stone, that it be made bread.

But Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread only, but by every word of God.

Then the devil took him up into an high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, in the twinkling of an eye.

And the devil said unto him, All this [c]power will I give thee, and the glory of those kingdoms: for that is [d]delivered to me: and to whomsoever I will, I give it.

If thou therefore wilt worship me, they shall be all [e]thine.

But Jesus answered him, and said, Hence from me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him alone thou shalt serve.

Then he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the Temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence,

10 For it is written, That he will give his Angels charge over thee to keep thee:

11 And with their hands they shall lift thee up, lest at anytime thou shouldest dash thy foot against a stone.

12 And Jesus answered, and said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a little season.

14 ¶ And Jesus returned by the power of the spirit into Galilee: and there went a fame of him throughout all the region round about:

15 For he taught in their Synagogues, and was honored of all men.

16 [f]And he came to Nazareth where he had been brought up, and (as his custom was) went into the Synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the Prophet Isaiah: and when he had [g]opened the book, he found the place, where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me, that I should preach the Gospel to the poor: he hath sent me, that I should heal the brokenhearted, that I should preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, that I should set at liberty them that are bruised:

19 And that I should preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20 And he closed the book, and gave it again to the minister, and sat down: and the eyes of all that were in the Synagogue were fastened on him.

21 Then he began to say unto them, This day is the Scripture fulfilled in your ears.

22 [h]And all [i]bare him witness, and [j]wondered at the [k]gracious words, which proceeded out of his mouth, and said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

23 Then he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this Proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do it here likewise in thine own country.

24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No Prophet is accepted in his own country.

25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when heaven was shut three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the [l]land:

26 But unto none of them was Elijah sent, save into Zarephath, a city of Sidon, unto a certain widow.

27 Also many lepers were in Israel, in the time of Elisha the Prophet: yet none of them was made clean, saving Naaman the Syrian.

28 [m]Then all that were in the Synagogue, when they heard it, were filled with wrath,

29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the edge of the hill, whereon their city was built, to cast him down headlong.

30 But he passed through the midst of them, and went his way,

31 And came down into Capernaum a city of Galilee, and there taught them on the Sabbath days.

32 And they were astonied at his doctrine: for his word was with authority.

33 And in the Synagogue there was a man which had a spirit of an unclean devil, which cried with a loud voice,

34 [n]Saying, Oh, what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know who thou art, even the Holy one of God.

35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. Then the devil throwing him in the midst of them, came out of him, and hurt him nothing at all.

36 So fear came on them all, and they spake among themselves, saying, What thing is this: for with authority and power he commandeth the foul spirits, and they come out?

37 And the fame of him spread abroad throughout all the places of the country round about.

38 [o]And he rose up, and came out of the Synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever, and they required him for her.

39 Then he stood over her, and rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she arose, and ministered unto them.

40 Now at the Sun setting, all they that had sick folks of divers diseases, brought them unto him, and he laid his hands on everyone of them, and healed them.

41 [p]And devils also came out of many, crying, and saying, Thou art that Christ that Son of God: but he rebuked them, and suffered them not to say that they knew him to be that Christ.

42 [q]And when it was day, he departed, and went forth into a desert place, and the people sought him, and came to him, and kept him that he should not depart from them.

43 But he said unto them, Surely I must also preach the kingdom of God to other cities: for therefore am I sent.

44 And he preached in the Synagogues of Galilee.

Luke 4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: 10 for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: 11 and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? 23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. 24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 but unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 and rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way, 31 and came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. 32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 34 saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. 35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. 36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. 37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. 39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them. 41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them. 43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent. 44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
