Weymouth Bible – Matthew Chapter 4

Matthew 4:1
At that time Jesus was led up by the spirit into the Desert in order to be tempted by the Devil.

Matthew 4:2
There He fasted for forty days and nights; and after that He suffered from hunger.

Matthew 4:3
So the Tempter came and said, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to turn into loaves.”

Matthew 4:4
“It is written,” replied Jesus, <“`It is not on bread alone that a man shall live, but on whatsoever God shall appoint.’”>

Matthew 4:5
Then the devil took Him to the Holy city and caused Him to stand on the roof of the Temple,

Matthew 4:6
and said, “If you are God’s Son, throw yourself down; for it is written, <“`To His angels He will give orders concerning thee, and on their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any moment thou shouldst strike thy foot against a stone.’”>

Matthew 4:7
“Again it is written,” replied Jesus, <“`Thou shalt not put the Lord thy God to the proof.’”>

Matthew 4:8
Then the Devil took Him to the top of an exceedingly lofty mountain, from which he caused Him to see all the Kingdoms of the world and their splendour,

Matthew 4:9
and said to Him, “All this I will give you, if you will kneel down and do me homage.”

Matthew 4:10
“Begone, Satan!” Jesus replied; “for it is written, <`To the Lord thy God thou shalt do homage, and to Him alone shalt thou render worship.’”>

Matthew 4:11
Thereupon the Devil left Him, and angels at once came and ministered to Him.

Matthew 4:12
Now when Jesus heard that John was thrown into prison, He withdrew into Galilee,

Matthew 4:13
and leaving Nazareth He went and settled at Capernaum, a town by the Lake on the frontiers of Zebulun and Naphtali,

Matthew 4:14
in order that these words, spoken through the Prophet Isaiah, might be fulfilled,

Matthew 4:15
<“Zebulun’s land and Naphtali’s land; the road by the Lake; the country beyond the Jordan; Galilee of the Nations!

Matthew 4:16
The people who were dwelling in darkness have seen a brilliant light; and on those who were dwelling in the region of the shadow of death, on them light has dawned.”>

Matthew 4:17
From that time Jesus began to preach. “Repent,” He said, “for the Kingdom of the heavens is now close at hand.”

Matthew 4:18
And walking along the shore of the Lake of galilee He saw two brothers–Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew–throwing a drag-net into the Lake; for they were fishers.

Matthew 4:19
And He said to them, “Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Matthew 4:20
So they immediately left their nets and followed Him. As He went further on,

Matthew 4:21
He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zabdi and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zabdi mending their nets; and He called them.

Matthew 4:22
And they at once left the boat and their father, and followed Him.

Matthew 4:23
Then Jesus travelled through all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom, and curing every kind of disease and infirmity among the people.

Matthew 4:24
Thus His fame spread through all Syria; and they brought all the sick to Him, the people who were suffering from various diseases and pains–demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He cured them.

Matthew 4:25
And great crowds followed Him, coming from Galilee, from the Ten Towns, from Jerusalem, and from beyond the district on the other side of the Jordan.
