(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.

verse 4. Here it is said that the man will live eternely if he hears the words of 'GOD ' and not by the bread or the food he eats.


Rev. Dr. W. Edward Mitchell, Jr.'s Matthew Chapter 4 comment about verse 15 on 8/30/2014, 10:22am...

Jesus completely fulfills scripture and in this passage He is not just strolling by chance, but by choice with purpose. Jesus is looking for these two Adelphos Simon Israel called Peter piece of the Rock of Israel and his brother Andrew man of Israel Who fulfill Biblical prophesy that from this area of an Israeli, disciples of John the Baptist, a stronghold would come disciples of "The Way ' " of Jesus. In other words, where pastors are having trouble with strongholds in the church, that 's where he needs to use the word of God to make disciples of his ministry!

It is very interesting to note that every response that jesus christ gave to satan began with It Is Written, he put all Our Fathers authority I.E. Gods word to work.


Jocelyn's Matthew Chapter 4 comment about verse 4 on 8/13/2014, 10:41am...

We cannot just live here for material stuff being materialistic . Giving, loving, sharing and helping others and taking care of your family are the things you need in life. Sure you need a job but do you need expensive cars, bags, million dollar house, you have to be humble, down to earth and pay if forward. My family are not rich nor poor but we try as much as we can to help our family and others with nothing in return. Other sees this as opportunity to judge us but do we care, no. Life is too short for material stuff and judgment from others. Love, live and rejoice... thank you.


Saundra's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 8/11/2014, 11:19pm...

It speaks of fasting but did not sufficiently mention it except when Christ was tempted by Satan in the Bible. It could be interpreted that after Christ conquered Satan he also accomplished his goal to let us know that we need to follow His word and repent of our sins and remember that Christ holds the power over you and that death o the physical body is eminent but we are renewed through Christ 's sacrifice to serve in our new bodies but only by Christ 's suffering and grace granted to us. Perhaps if we fast and pray then God will grant us to be cured. It is just basic Christian guidelines being done just because we must. We have grace but we need a faith and following and repentance in order to obtain a whole and healthy body.


Gift's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 8/04/2014, 4:37pm...

Satan tempted Jesus and left for a season according to Matthew 4 but Christ give him a final blow at the cross so we should bear that in mind Christ has defeated satan on our behalf so we shouldn't be afraid of him.
