1 Then was Jesus led by the spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil: 2 and when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, at last He was very hungry. 3 And the tempter came to Him and said, If thou art the Son of God, command these stones to become bread:
4 but He answered and said, It is written, "Man shall not live upon bread only, but on whatever proceedeth from the mouth of God."
5 Then the devil taketh Him into the holy city, and setteth Him on a wing of the temple, 6 and saith unto Him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thyself down; for it is written, He will give his angels charge concerning thee, and they shall bear thee up as in their hands, least at any time thou shouldst dash thy foot against a stone:
7 but Jesus said unto him, it is also written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again the devil taketh Him to a very high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 and saith unto Him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me:
10 then Jesus saith unto him, Be gone, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
11 and Him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil left Him, and behold angels came and attended Him.
12 Now when Jesus heard that John was imprisoned, He departed into Galilee: 13 and leaving Nazareth He came and dwelt in Capernaum a maritime town, on the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, "The land of Zabulon,
15 and Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, 16 about Jordan, Galilee of the gentiles, the people that sat in darkness, saw a great light, and to them, who sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up."
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
18 Now as Jesus was walking by the sea of Galilee, He saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; (for they were fishermen:) 19 and He saith unto them, Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men: 20 and they immediately left their nets, and followed Him.
21 And going on from thence He saw two other brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; 22 and He called them also; and they immediately left the ship, and their father, and followed Him.
23 And Jesus went through all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom of heaven, and healing every disease and every malady among the people. 24 And his fame spread abroad into all Syria; and they brought unto Him all their sick, that laboured under various diseases and torments; even those who were possessed with devils, and lunatics, and paralytics; and he healed them: 25 and great multitudes of people followed Him from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, yea and from beyond Jordan.
