4:1Then was Iesus led aside of the Spirit into the wildernes, to be tempted of the deuil.
4:2And when he had fasted fourtie dayes, and fourtie nights, he was afterward hungrie.
4:3Then came to him the tempter, and said, If thou be the Sonne of God, commande that these stones be made bread.
4:4But he answering said, It is written, Man shall not liue by bread onely, but by euery worde that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
4:5Then the deuil tooke him vp into the holy Citie, and set him on a pinacle of the temple,
4:6And said vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe: for it is written, that he wil giue his Angels charge ouer thee, and with their hands they shall lift thee vp, lest at any time thou shouldest dash thy foote against a stone.
4:7Iesus saide vnto him, It is written againe, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
4:8Againe the deuil tooke him vp into an exceeding hie mountaine, and shewed him all the kingdomes of the world, and the glory of them,
4:9And sayd to him, All these will I giue thee, if thou wilt fall downe, and worship me.
4:10Then sayd Iesus vnto him, Auoyde Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him onely shalt thou serue.
4:11Then the deuill left him: and beholde, the Angels came, and ministred vnto him.
4:12And when Iesus had heard that Iohn was committed to prison, he returned into Galile.
4:13And leauing Nazareth, went and dwelt in Capernaum, which is neere the sea in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim,
4:14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Propet, saying,
4:15The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim by the way of the sea, beyond Iordan, Galile of the Gentiles:
4:16The people which sate in darkenes, sawe great light: and to them which sate in the region, and shadowe of death, light is risen vp.
4:17From that time Iesus began to preach, and to say, Amende your liues: for the kingdome of heauen is at hand.
4:18And Iesus walking by the sea of Galile, sawe two brethren, Simon, which was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishers.)
4:19And he sayd vnto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
4:20And they straightway leauing the nets, folowed him.
4:21And when he was gone forth from thence, he saw other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebedeus, and Iohn his brother in a ship with Zebedeus their father, mending their nets, and he called them.
4:22And they without tarying, leauing the ship, and their father, folowed him.
4:23So Iesus went about all Galile, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing euery sicknesse and euery disease among the people.
4:24And his fame spread abroad through all Syria: and they brought vnto him all sicke people, that were taken with diuers diseases and torments, and them that were possessed with deuils, and those which were lunatike, and those that had the palsey: and he healed them.
4:25And there folowed him great multitudes out of Galile, and Decapolis, and Hierusalem, and Iudea, and from beyond Iordan.

Geneva Bible 1560

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers strongly preferred this version.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
