Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by (in) the Spirit in the wilderness. 2Forty days being tempted by the devil; and He did not eat anything in those days, and they having ended, he was hungry. 3And the devil said to Him, If You are the Son of God, speak to this stone, so that it should become bread. 4And Jesus answered to him, It has been written, That man will not live upon bread alone, {but upon every saying (rhemati) of God.}

5And {the devil} having led Him up {unto a high mountain}, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6And the devil said to Him, To You I will give all this authority and the glory of it; because it has been delivered over (betrayed, handed over) to me, and I give it to whom I want. 7If therefore You will worship before me, all will be Yours. 8And Jesus answering said to him, It has been written, You will worship the Lord your God and you will serve Him only.

9And he led Him into Jerusalem, and stood upon the pinnacle of the temple and said to Him, If you are the Son of God, cast Yourself down from here;

10For it has been written that He will give orders to His angels concerning you to thoroughly guard you;

11And that upon their hands they will bear you, lest ever you strike your foot against a stone.

12And Jesus answering, said to him, It has been said, You will not test out (tempt) the Lord your God.

13And having finished every temptation (test), the devil departed away from Him until an opportune time.

14And Jesus returned in the power (ability to perform) of the Spirit unto Galilee; and a report went out through the whole surrounding region concerning Him. 15And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

16And He came unto Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and He entered according to His custom into the synagogue on the day of the Sabbath and stood up to read. 17And there was given to Him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah, and having unrolled the scroll, He found the place where it has written,

18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor (destitute, beggarly). He has sent me {to heal (iasasthai) the broken (crushed) in heart} to preach deliverance (remission, release, forgiveness, pardon) to captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth the broken (crushed, shattered in pieces) in deliverance (remission, forgiveness, pardon),

19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20And having rolled up the scroll, having delivered it to the attendant, He sat down and the eyes of all in the synagogue were completely fixated on Him. 21And He began to say to them, Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears. 22And all bore witness to Him and marveled upon the words of the grace that are proceeding out of His mouth; and they said, Is this not the son of Joseph? 23And He said to them, You will surely say to Me this proverb (parable, comparison), Physician (iatre) heal (therapeuson) yourself; whatsoever we have heard has been done unto Capernaum, do also here in your own father’s place. 24And He said, Truly I say to you that no prophet is acceptable in his own father’s place. 25However upon truth I say to you, There were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up upon three years and six months, when there was a great famine upon all the land; 26And to none of them was Elijah sent, except unto [the town of] Zarephath (greek-Sarepta) of Sidon, to a widowed woman. 27And many lepers were in Israel in the time (upon) of Elisha the prophet and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian. 28And all were filled with an outburst of passion (rage, expressed anger) in the synagogue, hearing these things; 29And having risen up, they cast Him outside of the city, and led Him unto the brow (ridge) of the hill (mountain) upon which their city had been built in order to throw Him down over; 30However He having passed through the midst of them, went away.

31And He went down unto Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbath. 32And they were astounded at (upon) His teaching because His word was in authority. 33And there was a man in the synagogue having a spirit of an unclean demon; and he cried (screamed/shouted) out loudly with a great voice, 34Ha! (Ah!, Aha!, Ho!) What to us and to you, Jesus of Nazareth? Are You come to destroy us? I know You who You are, the Holy [One] of God. 35And Jesus censured upon him, saying, Be put to silence (muzzled), and come out away from him! And the demon, having thrown (cast, tossed) him into the midst, came out away from him, having not hurt him. 36And astonishment came upon all and they spoke to one another, saying, What word is this, that in authority and power He commands the unclean spirits and they come out? 37And the report (sound) went out concerning Him into every place of the surrounding region.

38And having risen up away from the synagogue, He entered into the house of Simon. And the mother-in-law of Simon was afflicted with a great fever; and they asked Him concerning her. 39And having stood (stood upon) over (upon-above) her, He censured the fever, and it left her; and instantly having arisen, she served (diekonei) them.

40And at the setting of the sun, all, as many as had any ailing with various diseases (usually chronic and incurable), brought them to Him, and having laid hands upon each one of them, He healed (etherapeuen) them; 41And demons also went out away from many, crying out and saying, You are the Son of God. And censuring them, He did not allow them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ.

42And daybreak having arrived, having gone out, He went unto a wilderness (solitary) place, and the crowds sought Him and came up to Him and were detaining Him that He should not go away from them. 43And He said to them, It is necessary for Me to preach the good news of the kingdom of God to other towns; because upon this I have been sent forth.

44And He was preaching in (unto) the synagogues of Galilee.
