“Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,”
King James Version (KJV)
4:5 The holy city - So Jerusalem was commonly called, being the place God had peculiarly chosen for himself. On the battlement of the temple - Probably over the king's gallery, which was of such a prodigious height, that no one could look down from the top of it without making himself giddy.
Mt 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city. What way the devil took him, whether bodily or in spirit, we are not told. On a pinnacle of the temple. The only portion of the temple that seems to answer to the context was the lofty porch overhanging the valley of Kidron. Josephus says that from the roof to the valley below at this point was 300 feet.
