(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.

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.


Jose a velez's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/24/2015, 11:48am...

because through His Word we are healed and all worth the Scriptures are true and all those who believe will inherit the kingdom of God


Derrick's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/22/2015, 5:18pm...

You are correct sir. Three times according to the gospel. If you look at how this is translated in later books... It will say he was tempted for forty days and forty nights, However you read it correctly as we have, you will clearly see that it was three times after he was starving and in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights.


Lee's Matthew Chapter 4 comment about verse 2 on 1/22/2015, 12:31am...

I never read that Jesus was tempted three days, but I did read that the devil tempted him three different times. Please clarify this for me....


Anon's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/09/2015, 3:21pm...

To demonstrate the power of God 's creations and Jesus ' healing power is a story that happened today. It will sound odd but rather lovely - I washed the drapes and as I placed them in the dryer, I saw a stink bug crawling on one of the drapes - still alive after going through a gentle cycle. The miracle of God 's creations will never be truly understood by man, but his word and Jesus 's sacrifice and love give man great faith. So Amen to that, and Matthew 's testament.


Samuel's Matthew Chapter 4 comment about verse 1 on 1/06/2015, 4:40am...

I believe that the devil didn 't want humans to have salvation, that was why he came to tempt Him thinking that he will overcome Jesus with those tricks. but Jesus knew the WORD so he won the battle for us on the cross. So today we have salvation.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/04/2015, 7:58am...

Hello Wayfarer: Please read the following information for I have already addressed these comments. When God said "let us " If you would please go to page 5 up under this Chapter where I gave Russel2079 a 4 part answer to this same question date 10-14-14 times 10:12 pm and 10:13pm, you will find my answer to your question. I also addressed the questions about "let us make man in our image AFTER our likeness ". Anonymous asked this same question on page 6 of the Chapter date 10-10-14 it is in 3 parts times 1:18pm 1:19pm 1:20pm. Please read my comment. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh, in 1 John 5: 7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. There are other scriptures that show the oneness of God, John Chapter 1 1 Timothy 3: 16. Jesus declared he was the Father to Philip, John 14: 8 and 9. The Holy Ghost name is Jesus Christ, John 14: 26.


Wayfarer's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 1/04/2015, 12:37am...

Answer to ECR comments dated 11-09-2014 2:36 am. I don 't agree with you that Jesus Christ holds all three offices, making him the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, thus it will immediately follows that they are equal in power and authority. The bible tells us plainly that they are distinct to one another. The Father is Greater than the Son -John 15:28-. In the book of Genesis 1:26 When God said "Let US make man in OUR image " he is talking to someone who has the power to create just like himself, so beside the Father who else has the power to create? of course its the Son. Its impossible to think that God talk to his angels about creation of men, since angels has no power to create, and its impossible that the Father talking to himself, remember our God is not the author of confusion 1Cor 14:33.
