1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil. 2 And having fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterwards hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.
4 And he answered and said; It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceeds from the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took him into the holy city, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and 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 take you up on their hands, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said to him, Again it is written, You shall not try the Lord your God.
8 Again the devil took him away on a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory, 9 and said to him, All these things will I give you, if you will fall down and worship me.
10 Then Jesus said to him, Get behind me Satan; for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.
11 Then the devil left him; and behold angels came and waited on him.
12 AND when he heard that John was delivered up, he departed to Galilee; 13 and leaving Nazareth he came and lived at Capernaum on the lake, in the bounds of Zebulon and Naphtali, 14 that the word might be fulfilled, spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying;
15 Land of Zebulon and Naphtali, by the way of the lake, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations, 16 the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shade of death has light arisen.
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Change your minds; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
18 And walking by the lake of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, Come after me, and I will make you fishermen of men. 20 And they left their nets, immediately, and followed him.
21 And going forward thence, 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. 22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.
23 And he went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people. 24 And his fame went out into all Syria; and they brought him all that were ill, afflicted with various diseases and torments, and demoniacs, and lunatics, and paralytics, and he cured them; 25 and great multitudes followed him from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
