Luke 4:1-13 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.

Luke 4:1-13 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.

Luke 4:1-13 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.
