Luke 4 (WEBP)

[1] Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness
[2] for forty days, being tempted by the devil. He ate nothing in those days. Afterward, when they were completed, he was hungry.
[3] The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”
[4] Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ ”
[5] The devil, leading him up on a high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
[6] The devil said to him, “I will give you all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I want.
[7] If you therefore will worship before me, it will all be yours.”
[8] Jesus answered him, “Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him only.’ ”
[9] He led 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,
[10] for it is written, ‘He will put his angels in charge of you, to guard you;’
[11] and, ‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest perhaps you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”
[12] Jesus answering, said to him, “It has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”
[13] When the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him until another time.
[14] Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee, and news about him spread through all the surrounding area.
[15] He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
[16] He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. He entered, as was his custom, into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
[17] The book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. He opened the book, and found the place where it was written,
[18] “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the broken hearted,° to proclaim release to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, to deliver those who are crushed,
[19] and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
[20] He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him.
[21] He began to tell them, “Today, this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
[22] All testified about him and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth; and they said, “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?”
[23] He said to them, “Doubtless you will tell me this proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done at Capernaum, do also here in your hometown.’ ”
[24] He said, “Most certainly I tell you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown.
[25] But truly I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land.
[26] Elijah was sent to none of them, except to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.
[27] There were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed, except Naaman, the Syrian.”
[28] They were all filled with wrath in the synagogue as they heard these things.
[29] They rose up, threw him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill that their city was built on, that they might throw him off the cliff.
[30] But he, passing through the middle of them, went his way.
[31] He came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. He was teaching them on the Sabbath day,
[32] and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority.
[33] In the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon; and he cried out with a loud voice,
[34] saying, “Ah! what have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God!”
[35] Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent and come out of him!” When the demon had thrown him down in the middle of them, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
[36] Amazement came on all and they spoke together, one with another, saying, “What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!”
[37] News about him went out into every place of the surrounding region.
[38] He rose up from the synagogue and entered into Simon’s house. Simon’s mother-in-law was afflicted with a great fever, and they begged him to help her.
[39] He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. Immediately she rose up and served them.
[40] When the sun was setting, all those who had any sick with various diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
[41] Demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of God!” Rebuking them, he didn’t allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.
[42] When it was day, he departed and went into an uninhabited place and the multitudes looked for him, and came to him, and held on to him, so that he wouldn’t go away from them.
[43] But he said to them, “I must preach the good news of God’s Kingdom to the other cities also. For this reason I have been sent.”
[44] He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.

Luke 4 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 Jesus G2424 being full G4134 of the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 returned G5290 (AorActInd) from G575 Jordan G2446, and G2532 was led G71 (ImpfPasInd) by G1722 the Spirit G4151 into G1519 the wilderness G2048,
[2] Being G3985 forty G5062 days G2250 tempted G3985 (PresPasPtc) of G5259 the devil G1228. And G2532 in G1722 those G1565 days G2250 he did eat G5315 (Aor2ActInd) nothing G3756 G3762: and G2532 when they G846 were ended G4931 (AorPasPtc), he afterward G5305 hungered G3983 (AorActInd).
[3] And G2532 the devil G1228 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, If G1487 thou be G1488 (PresInd) the Son G5207 of God G2316, command G2036 (Aor2ActImpr) this G5129 stone G3037 that G2443 it be made G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) bread G740.
[4] And G2532 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) him G4314 G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), It is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), That G3754 man G444 shall G2198 not G3756 live G2198 (FutMidDepInd) by G1909 bread G740 alone G3441, but G235 by G1909 every G3956 word G4487 of God G2316.
[5] And G2532 the devil G1228, taking G321 him G846 up G321 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 an high G5308 mountain G3735, shewed G1166 (AorActInd) unto him G846 all G3956 the kingdoms G932 of the world G3625 in G1722 a moment G4743 of time G5550.
[6] And G2532 the devil G1228 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, All G537 this G5026 power G1849 will I give G1325 (FutActInd) thee G4671, and G2532 the glory G1391 of them G846: for G3754 that is delivered G3860 (PerfPasInd) unto me G1698; and G2532 to G3739 whomsoever G1437 I will G2309 (PresActSubj) I give G1325 (PresActInd) it G846.
[7] If G1437 thou G4771 therefore G3767 wilt worship G4352 (AorActSubj) me G1799 G3450, all G3956 shall be G2071 (FutInd) thine G4675.
[8] And G2532 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Get thee G5217 (PresActImpr) behind G3694 me G3450, Satan G4567: for G1063 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), Thou shalt worship G4352 (FutActInd) the Lord G2962 thy G4675 God G2316, and G2532 him G846 only G3441 shalt thou serve G3000 (FutActInd).
[9] And G2532 he brought G71 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 to G1519 Jerusalem G2419, and G2532 set G2476 (AorActInd) him G846 on G1909 a pinnacle G4419 of the temple G2411, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, If G1487 thou be G1488 (PresInd) the Son G5207 of God G2316, cast G906 (Aor2ActImpr) thyself G4572 down G2736 from hence G1782:
[10] For G1063 G3754 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), He shall give G1781 his G846 angels G32 charge G1781 (FutMidPasDepInd) over G4012 thee G4675, to keep G1314 (AorActInf) thee G4571:
[11] And G2532 G3754 in G1909 [their] hands G5495 they shall bear G142 thee G4571 up G142 (FutActInd), lest at any time G3379 thou dash G4350 (AorActSubj) thy G4675 foot G4228 against G4314 a stone G3037.
[12] And G2532 Jesus G2424 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, It is said G3754 G2046 (PerfPasInd), Thou shalt G1598 not G3756 tempt G1598 (FutActInd) the Lord G2962 thy G4675 God G2316.
[13] And G2532 when the devil G1228 had ended G4931 (AorActPtc) all G3956 the temptation G3986, he departed G868 (Aor2ActInd) from G575 him G846 for G891 a season G2540.
[14] And G2532 Jesus G2424 returned G5290 (AorActInd) in G1722 the power G1411 of the Spirit G4151 into G1519 Galilee G1056: and G2532 there went out G1831 (Aor2ActInd) a fame G5345 of G4012 him G846 through G2596 all G3650 the region round about G4066.
[15] And G2532 he G846 taught G1321 (ImpfActInd) in G1722 their G846 synagogues G4864, being glorified G1392 (PresPasPtc) of G5259 all G3956.
[16] And G2532 he came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Nazareth G3478, where G3757 he had been G2258 (ImpfInd) brought up G5142 (PerfPasPtc): and G2532, as G2596 his G846 custom G1486 (Perf2ActPtc) was G2596, he went G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the synagogue G4864 on G1722 the sabbath G4521 day G2250, and G2532 stood up G450 (Aor2ActInd) for to read G314 (Aor2ActInf).
[17] And G2532 there was delivered G1929 (AorPasInd) unto him G846 the book G975 of the prophet G4396 Esaias G2268. And G2532 when he had opened G380 (AorActPtc) the book G975, he found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) the place G5117 where G3757 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) written G1125 (PerfPasPtc),
[18] The Spirit G4151 of the Lord G2962 [is] upon G1909 me G1691, because G1752 he hath anointed G5548 (AorActInd) me G3165 to preach the gospel G2097 (PresMidInf) to the poor G4434; he hath sent G649 (PerfActInd) me G3165 to heal G2390 (AorMidDepInf) the brokenhearted G4937 (PerfPasPtc) G2588, to preach G2784 (AorActInf) deliverance G859 to the captives G164, and G2532 recovering of sight G309 to the blind G5185, to set G649 (AorActInf) at G1722 liberty G859 them that are bruised G2352 (PerfPasPtc),
[19] To preach G2784 (AorActInf) the acceptable G1184 year G1763 of the Lord G2962.
[20] And G2532 he closed G4428 (AorActPtc) the book G975, and he gave [it] again G591 (Aor2ActPtc) to the minister G5257, and sat down G2523 (AorActInd). And G2532 the eyes G3788 of all them G3956 that were G2258 (ImpfInd) in G1722 the synagogue G4864 were fastened G816 (PresActPtc) on him G846.
[21] And G1161 he began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to say G3004 (PresActInf) unto G4314 them G846, This G3754 day G4594 is G4137 this G3778 scripture G1124 fulfilled G4137 (PerfPasInd) in G1722 your G5216 ears G3775.
[22] And G2532 all G3956 bare G3140 him G846 witness G3140 (ImpfActInd), and G2532 wondered G2296 (ImpfActInd) at G1909 the gracious G5485 words G3056 which G3588 proceeded G1607 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G1537 his G846 mouth G4750. And G2532 they said G3004 (ImpfActInd), Is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 this G3778 Joseph’s G2501 son G5207?
[23] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Ye will G2046 surely G3843 say G2046 (FutActInd) unto me G3427 this G5026 proverb G3850, Physician G2395, heal G2323 (AorActImpr) thyself G4572: whatsoever G3745 we have heard G191 (AorActInd) done G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) in G1722 Capernaum G2584, do G4160 (AorActImpr) also G2532 here G5602 in G1722 thy G4675 country G3968.
[24] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 No G3762 prophet G4396 is G2076 (PresInd) accepted G1184 in G1722 his own G846 country G3968.
[25] But G1161 I tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 of G1909 a truth G225, many G4183 widows G5503 were G2258 (ImpfInd) in G1722 Israel G2474 in G1722 the days G2250 of Elias G2243, when G3753 the heaven G3772 was shut up G2808 (AorPasInd) G1909 three G5140 years G2094 and G2532 six G1803 months G3376, when G5613 great G3173 famine G3042 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) throughout G1909 all G3956 the land G1093;
[26] But G2532 unto G4314 none G3762 of them G846 was G3992 Elias G2243 sent G3992 (AorPasInd), save G1508 unto G1519 Sarepta G4558, [a city] of Sidon G4605, unto G4314 a woman G1135 [that was] a widow G5503.
[27] And G2532 many G4183 lepers G3015 were G2258 (ImpfInd) in G1722 Israel G2474 in the time G1909 of Eliseus G1666 the prophet G4396; and G2532 none G3762 of them G846 was cleansed G2511 (AorPasInd), saving G1508 Naaman G3497 the Syrian G4948.
[28] And G2532 all they G3956 in G1722 the synagogue G4864, when they heard G191 (PresActPtc) these things G5023, were filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with wrath G2372,
[29] And G2532 rose up G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and thrust G1544 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 out of G1854 the city G4172, and G2532 led G71 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 unto G2193 the brow G3790 of the hill G3735 whereon G1909 G3739 their G846 city G4172 was built G3618 (PlupfPasInd), that G1519 they might cast G2630 him G846 down headlong G2630 (AorActInf).
[30] But G1161 he G846 passing G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) through G1223 the midst G3319 of them G846 went his way G4198 (ImpfMidPasDepInd),
[31] And G2532 came down G2718 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Capernaum G2584, a city G4172 of Galilee G1056, and G2532 taught G1321 (PresActPtc) them G846 G2258 (ImpfInd) on G1722 the sabbath days G4521.
[32] And G2532 they were astonished G1605 (ImpfPasInd) at G1909 his G846 doctrine G1322: for G3754 his G846 word G3056 was G2258 (ImpfInd) with G1722 power G1849.
[33] And G2532 in G1722 the synagogue G4864 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a man G444, which had G2192 (PresActPtc) a spirit G4151 of an unclean G169 devil G1140, and G2532 cried out G349 (AorActInd) with a loud G3173 voice G5456,
[34] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Let [us] alone G1436; what G5101 have we to do G2254 with thee G4671, G2532 [thou] Jesus G2424 of Nazareth G3479? art thou come G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to destroy G622 (AorActInf) us G2248? I know G1492 (PerfActInd) thee G4571 who G5101 thou art G1488 (PresInd); the Holy One G40 of God G2316.
[35] And G2532 Jesus G2424 rebuked G2008 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Hold thy peace G5392 (AorPasImpr), and G2532 come G1831 (Aor2ActImpr) out of G1537 him G846. And G2532 when the devil G1140 had thrown G4496 (AorActPtc) him G846 in G1519 the midst G3319, he came G1831 (Aor2ActInd) out of G575 him G846, and hurt G984 (AorActPtc) him G846 not G3367.
[36] And G2532 they were G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) all G1909 G3956 amazed G2285, and G2532 spake G4814 (ImpfActInd) among G4314 themselves G240, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 a word G3056 [is] this G3778! for G3754 with G1722 authority G1849 and G2532 power G1411 he commandeth G2004 (PresActInd) the unclean G169 spirits G4151, and G2532 they come out G1831 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[37] And G2532 the fame G2279 of G4012 him G846 went out G1607 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) into G1519 every G3956 place G5117 of the country round about G4066.
[38] And G1161 he arose G450 (Aor2ActPtc) out of G1537 the synagogue G4864, and entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 Simon’s G4613 house G3614. And G1161 Simon’s G4613 wife’s mother G3994 was G2258 (ImpfInd) taken with G4912 (PresPasPtc) a great G3173 fever G4446; and G2532 they besought G2065 (AorActInd) him G846 for G4012 her G846.
[39] And G2532 he stood G2186 (Aor2ActPtc) over G1883 her G846, and rebuked G2008 (AorActInd) the fever G4446; and G2532 it left G863 (AorActInd) her G846: and immediately G3916 she arose G450 (Aor2ActPtc) and G1161 ministered G1247 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846.
[40] Now G1161 when the sun G2246 was setting G1416 (PresActPtc), all G3956 they that G3745 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) any sick G770 (PresActPtc) with divers G4164 diseases G3554 brought G71 (Aor2ActInd) them G846 unto G4314 him G846; and G1161 he laid G2007 his hands G5495 on G2007 (Aor2ActPtc) every G1538 one G1520 of them G846, and healed G2323 (AorActInd) them G846.
[41] And G1161 devils G1140 also G2532 came G1831 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) out of G575 many G4183, crying out G2896 (PresActPtc), and G2532 saying G3004 (PresActPtc), G3754 Thou G4771 art G1488 (PresInd) Christ G5547 the Son G5207 of God G2316. And G2532 he rebuking G2008 (PresActPtc) [them] suffered G1439 (ImpfActInd) them G846 not G3756 to speak G2980 (PresActInf): for G3754 they knew G1492 (PlupfActInd) that he G846 was G1511 (PresInf) Christ G5547.
[42] And G1161 when it was G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) day G2250, he departed G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) and went G4198 (AorPasDepInd) into G1519 a desert G2048 place G5117: and G2532 the people G3793 sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) him G846, and G2532 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) unto G2193 him G846, and G2532 stayed G2722 (ImpfActInd) him G846, that he should not G3361 depart G4198 (PresMidPasDepInf) from G575 them G846.
[43] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, G3754 I G3165 must G1163 (PresInd) preach G2097 (AorMidInf) the kingdom G932 of God G2316 to other G2087 cities G4172 also G2532: for G3754 therefore G1519 G5124 am I sent G649 (PerfPasInd).
[44] And G2532 he preached G2258 (ImpfInd) G2784 (PresActPtc) in G1722 the synagogues G4864 of Galilee G1056.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 4 (YLT)

[1] And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, turned back from the Jordan, and was brought in the Spirit to the wilderness,
[2] forty days being tempted by the Devil, and he did not eat anything in those days, and they having been ended, he afterward hungered,
[3] and the Devil said to him, ‘If Son thou art of God, speak to this stone that it may become bread.’
[4] And Jesus answered him, saying, ‘It hath been written, that, not on bread only shall man live, but on every saying of God.’
[5] And the Devil having brought him up to an high mountain, shewed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time,
[6] and the Devil said to him, ‘To thee I will give all this authority, and their glory, because to me it hath been delivered, and to whomsoever I will, I do give it;
[7] thou, then, if thou mayest bow before me-all shall be thine.’
[8] And Jesus answering him said, ‘Get thee behind me, Adversary, for it hath been written, Thou shalt bow before the Lord thy God, and Him only thou shalt serve.’
[9] And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, ‘If the Son thou art of God, cast thyself down hence,
[10] for it hath been written-To His messengers He will give charge concerning thee, to guard over thee,
[11] and-On hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou mayest dash against a stone thy foot.’
[12] And Jesus answering said to him-‘It hath been said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.’
[13] And having ended all temptation, the Devil departed from him till a convenient season.
[14] And Jesus turned back in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a fame went forth through all the region round about concerning him,
[15] and he was teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
[16] And he came to Nazareth, where he hath been brought up, and he went in, according to his custom, on the sabbath-day, to the synagogue, and stood up to read;
[17] and there was given over to him a roll of Isaiah the prophet, and having unfolded the roll, he found the place where it hath been written:
[18] ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He did anoint 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 away the bruised with deliverance,
[19] To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.’
[20] And having folded the roll, having given it back to the officer, he sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing on him.
[21] And he began to say unto them-‘To-day hath this writing been fulfilled in your ears;’
[22] and 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 not this the son of Joseph?’
[23] And he said unto them, ‘Certainly ye will say to me this simile, Physician, heal thyself; as great things as we heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country;’
[24] and he said, ‘Verily I say to you-No prophet is accepted in his own country;
[25] and of a truth I say to you, Many widows were in the days of Elijah, in Israel, when the heaven was shut for three years and six months, when great famine came on all the land,
[26] and unto none of them was Elijah sent, but-to Sarepta of Sidon, unto a woman, a widow;
[27] and many lepers were in the time of Elisha the prophet, in Israel, and none of them was cleansed, but-Naaman the Syrian.’
[28] And all in the synagogue were filled with wrath, hearing these things,
[29] and having risen, they put him forth without the city, and brought him unto the brow of the hill on which their city had been built-to cast him down headlong,
[30] and he, having gone through the midst of them, went away.
[31] And he came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the sabbaths,
[32] and they were astonished at his teaching, because his word was with authority.
[33] And in the synagogue was a man, having a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a great voice,
[34] saying, ‘Away, what-to us and to thee, Jesus, O Nazarene? thou didst come to destroy us; I have known thee who thou art-the Holy One of God.’
[35] And Jesus did rebuke 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 nought;
[36] and amazement came upon all, and they were speaking together, with one another, saying, ‘What is this word, that with authority and power he doth command the unclean spirits, and they come forth?’
[37] and there was going forth a fame concerning him to every place of the region round about.
[38] And 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 did ask him about her,
[39] and having stood over her, he rebuked the fever, and it left her, and presently, having risen, she was ministering to them.
[40] And at the setting of the sun, all, as many as had any ailing with manifold sicknesses, brought them unto him, and he on each one of them his hands having put, did heal them.
[41] And demons also were coming forth from many, crying out and saying-‘Thou art the Christ, the Son of God;’ and rebuking, he did not suffer them to speak, because they knew him to be the Christ.
[42] And day having come, having gone forth, he went on to a desert place, and the multitudes were seeking him, and they came unto him, and were staying him-not to go on from them,
[43] and he said unto them-‘Also to the other cities it behoveth me to proclaim good news of the reign of God, because for this I have been sent;’
[44] and he was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
