The Gospel of Jesus Christ - MATTHEW 4
Christ's fast of forty days: he is tempted: begins his preaching in Galilee according to the prophet: fixes his abode at Capharnaum: calls Peter and Andrew, James and John: his miracles, reputation, and numerous followers.
1 Then *Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterwards hungry.
3 And the tempter coming, said to him: If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answered, and said: It is written: *Man liveth not by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took him up into the holy city, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 And said to him: If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written: *That he hath given his angels charge of thee, and in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said to him: It is written again: *Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain: and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them,
9 And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me.
10 Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan, for it is written: *The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the devil left him; and behold angels came and ministered to him.
12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was delivered up, *he retired into Galilee:
13 And leaving the city Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capharnaum, on the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
14 That what was said by Isaias, the prophet, might be fulfilled:
15 *The land of Zabulon and land of Nephthalim, the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
16 The people that sat in darkness, saw great light: and to them that sat in the region of the shadow of death, light is sprung up.
17 *From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say: Do penance, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
18 And Jesus walking by the sea of Galilee, *saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishers).
19 And he saith to them: Come after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
20 And they, immediately leaving their nets, followed him.
21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.
22 And they, immediately leaving their nets and father, followed him.
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom: and healing all diseases, and infirmities among the people.
24 And his fame went throughout all Syria, and they brought to him all sick people, that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and such as were possessed by devils and lunatics, and those that had the palsy, and he healed them:
25 *And great multitudes followed him from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.
