(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 Then was Iesus led vp of the Spirit into the wildernesse, to bee tempted of the deuill.

2 And when hee had fasted forty dayes and forty nights, hee was afterward an hungred.

3 And when the tempter came to him, hee said, If thou be the sonne of God, command that these stones bee made bread.

4 But he answered, and said, It is written, Man shall not liue by bread alone, but by euery word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

5 Then the deuill taketh him vp into the holy Citie, and setteth him on a pinacle of the Temple,

6 And saith vnto him, If thou bee the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe: For it is written, He shall giue his Angels charge concerning thee, & in their handes they shall beare thee vp, lest at any time thou dash thy foote against a stone.

7 Iesus said vnto him, It is written againe, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Againe the Deuill taketh him vp into an exceeding high mountaine, and sheweth him all the kingdomes of the world, and the glory of them:

9 And saith vnto him, All these things will I giue thee, if thou wilt fall downe and worship me.

10 Then saith Iesus vnto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him onely shalt thou serue.

11 Then the deuill leaueth him, and behold, Angels came and ministred vnto him.

12 Now when Iesus had heard that Iohn was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee.

13 And leauing Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is vpon the Sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthali:

14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet, saying,

15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthali, by the way of the Sea beyond Iordane, Galilee of the Gentiles:

16 The people which sate in darkenesse, saw great light: and to them which sate in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung vp.

17 From that time Iesus began to preach, and to say, Repent, for the kingdome of heauen is at hand.

18 And Iesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the Sea (for they were fishers)

19 And he saith vnto them, Follow mee: and I will make you fishers of men.

20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

21 And going on from thence, hee sawe other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebedee, and Iohn his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.

22 And they immediatly left the shippe and their father, and followed him.

23 And Iesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing all maner of sickenesse, and all maner of disease among the people.

24 And his fame went thorowout all Syria: and they brought vnto him all sicke people that were taken with diuerse diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with deuils, and those which were lunaticke, and those that had the palsie, and he healed them.

25 And there followed him great great multitudes of people, from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Hierusalem, and from Iudea, and from beyond Iordane.

Pamela wright's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 3/02/2015, 7:29am...

It seems that John the Baptist and then Jesus was attempting to show the other Jews that they needed to repent from their sins and live a better life...and that was radical causing a stir...then making that belief criminal. So John was eventually beheaded and Jesus had people believing He was holy and so He was killed too. So, once Jesus, who was holy, was crucified then those who believe in Him worship God in a new way...following His teachings. OK I get it.

Jesus does love you. You bring people to get closer to Him I know because I'm one of them.


Angel's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 2/28/2015, 12:33pm...

Wow words so strong to heal. Maybe now it can fix a lot of medical conditions. But our USA changed from them taking god out of the classroom and blessing at the table. More should consider the bile as our life in our hand. Not as a cause of belief of others. God never said to believe in others and stop preaching his words. People who come her should respect the bible and respect our way of life. Look now since its changed we went down hill.....


Tom's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 2/23/2015, 9:18pm...

All sickness paid for at the cross. Your healing already completed at the cross. Do you have faith the size of a mustard seed? Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Jesus said " heal the sick and set the captives free.


Horace's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 2/19/2015, 9:36am...

Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Live by following all of his instructions as to what to eat and what not to eat and follow all his laws, etc. These are my thoughts.

TERRY MURRAY's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 2/01/2015, 6:57pm...

To be honest I must read, re-read it until I understand the true meaning of each and every WORD given by the Creator to his teacher, before I comment. I am LEARNING more each time I read the Word.


Linda Hendrix's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/27/2015, 3:29pm...

Through all things we must have faith, but, faith without works is dead. We are not healed by faith alone. If we have faith in our God and in the hands of the people that are treating us, then, it is possible we may be healed from what is causing us to be sick. Matthew is a book written by an author that writes books, much like anyone of today, writing their own thoughts. Now this is my thoughts, just like anyone else.
