Context Readings

Testing And Tempting

11 For the sun has risen with its burning heat, and has withered the grass, and its flower has fallen, and the comeliness of its look has perished: thus the rich also shall wither in his goings. 12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for, having been proved, he shall receive the crown of life, which He has promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man, being tempted, say, I am tempted of God. For God cannot be tempted by evil things, and himself tempts no one.
