Then Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan River. He was
led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for
forty days. Jesus ate nothing all that time and became very hungry.

Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the
world in a moment of time. “I will give you the glory of these kingdoms
and authority over them,” the devil said, “because they are mine to give to
anyone I please. I will give it all to you if you will worship me.”
Jesus replied, “The Scriptures say,

and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say,
‘He will order his angels to protect and guard you.

Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord
your God.’”
When the devil had finished tempting Jesus, he left him until the next
opportunity came.
