“Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:7 Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God - By requiring farther evidence of what he hath already made sufficiently plain. #Deut 6:16|.
Mt 4:7 Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again the Savior replies in the words of Scripture, this time quoting from De 6:16. There is no argument, but a simple reply that shows what is asked is forbidden.
