Luke 4
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, turned back from the Jordan, and was brought in the Spirit into the wilderness, 2being tempted by the Devil forty days, and He did not eat anything in those days, and they having been ended, He afterward hungered, 3and the Devil said to Him, “If You are [the] Son of God, speak to this stone that it may become bread.” 4And Jesus answered him, saying, “It has been written, that, Not on bread only will man live, but on every saying of God.”

5And the Devil having brought Him up to a high mountain, showed to 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 their glory, because to me it has been delivered, and to whomsoever I will, I give it; 7You, then, if You may worship me—all will be Yours.” 8And Jesus answering him said, “[[Get behind Me, Satan, for]] it has been written: You will worship the LORD your God, and Him only you will serve.”

9And he brought Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on 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: To His messengers He will give charge concerning you, to guard over you;

11and: On hands they will bear you up, lest at any time you may dash your foot against a stone.”

12And Jesus answering said to him, “It has been said, You will not tempt the LORD your God.”

13And having ended all temptation, the Devil departed from Him until a convenient season.

14And Jesus turned back in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a fame went forth through all the surrounding region concerning Him, 15and He was teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

16And He came to Nazareth, where He has been brought up, and He went in, according to His custom, on the day of the Sabbaths, into the synagogue, and stood up to read; 17and there was given over to Him a scroll of Isaiah the prophet, and having unfolded the scroll, He found the place where it has been written:

18“The Spirit of the LORD [is] on Me, "" Because He anointed Me "" To proclaim good news to the poor, "" Sent Me to heal the broken of heart, "" To proclaim to captives deliverance, "" And to blind receiving of sight, "" To send the bruised away with deliverance,

19To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” 20And having folded the scroll, having given [it] back to the officer, He sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing on Him. 21And He began to say to them, “Today this writing has been fulfilled in your ears”; 22and all were bearing testimony to Him, and were wondering at the gracious words that are coming forth out of His mouth, and they said, “Is this not the Son of Joseph?” 23And He said to them, “Certainly you will say to Me this allegory, Physician, heal yourself; as great things as we heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country”; 24and He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country; 25and of a truth I say to you, many widows were in the days of Elijah, in Israel, when the sky was shut for three years and six months, when great famine came on all the land, 26and to none of them was Elijah sent, but—to Sarepta of Sidon, to a woman, a widow; 27and many lepers were in the time of Elisha the prophet, in Israel, and none of them was cleansed, but—Naaman the Syrian.” 28And all in the synagogue were filled with wrath, hearing these things, 29and having risen, they put Him forth outside the city, and brought Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built—to cast Him down headlong, 30and He, having gone through the midst of them, went away.

31And He came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbaths, 32and they were astonished at His teaching, because His word was with authority. 33And in the synagogue was a man having a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a great voice, 34“Aah! What [regards] us and You, Jesus, O Nazarene? You came to destroy us; I have known who You are—the Holy One of God!” 35And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silenced, and come forth out of him”; and the demon having cast him into the midst, came forth from him, having hurt him nothing; 36and amazement came on all, and they were speaking together with one another, saying, “What [is] this word, that with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come forth?” 37And there was going forth a fame concerning Him to every place of the surrounding region.

38And having risen out of the synagogue, He entered into the house of Simon, and the mother-in-law of Simon was pressed with a great fever, and they asked Him about her, 39and having stood over her, He rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately, having risen, she was ministering to them.

40And at the setting of the sun, all, as many as had any ailing with manifold diseases, brought them to Him, and He, having put hands on each one of them, healed them. 41And demons were also coming forth from many, crying out and saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of God”; and rebuking, He did not permit them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ.

42And day having come, having gone forth, He went on to a desolate place, and the multitudes were seeking Him, and they came to Him, and were restraining Him—not to go on from them, 43and He said to them, “Also to the other cities it is necessary for Me to proclaim good news of the Kingdom of God, because for this I have been sent”;

44and He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
