4:1 Then was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil.
2 And having fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungry.
3 And the tempter came and said to him: If thou art the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.
4 But he answered and said: It is written: Not by bread alone shall man live, but by every word that comes forth through the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took him into the holy city, and set him on the wing of the temple.
6 and said to him: If thou art the Son of God, cast thyself down; for it is written: He will give his angels charge concerning thee, and in their hands they shall take thee up, lest thou strike thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said to him: Again it is written: Thou shalt not put the Lord thy God to the proof.
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them,
9 and said to him: All these will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then Jesus says to him: Get hence, Satan; for it is written: The Lord thy God thou shalt worship, and him only shalt thou serve
11 Then the devil left him; and, behold, angels came and ministered to him.
12 But when he had heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew into Galilee;
13 and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is on the sea, in the borders of Zebulon and Naphtali;
14 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying:
15 The land of Zebulon, and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
16 the people that sat in darkness saw great light; and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death light arose.
17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say: Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens is at hand.
18 And walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, throwing a net into the sea, for they were fishers.
19 And he said to them: Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20 And they immediately left their nets and followed him.
21 And going on thence, he saw other two brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
22 And immediately leaving the ship and their father, they followed him.
23 And he went about in the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every malady among the people.
24 And his fame went abroad into the whole of Syria; and they brought to him all that were sick with various diseases, and that were afflicted with torments, and those possessed with demons, and lunatics, and paralytics; and he cured them.
25 And there followed him many multitudes from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.
