Sambata dupa Botezul Domnului

The Saturday after Theophany

Evanghelia Zilei

In vremea aceea Iisus a fost dus de Duhul in pustie, ca sa fie ispitit de catre diavolul. Si postind El patruzeci de zile si patruzeci de nopti, in cele din urma a flamanzit. Si apropiindu-se Ispititorul, I-a zis: „Daca esti tu Fiul lui Dumnezeu, zi ca pietrele acestea sa se faca paini“. Iar El, raspunzand, i-a zis: „Scris este: Nu numai cu paine va trai omul, ci cu tot cuvantul care iese din gura lui Dumnezeu“. Atunci diavolul L-a dus in Sfanta Cetate si L-a pus pe aripa templului si I-a zis: „Daca esti Fiul lui Dumnezeu, arunca-te jos, ca scris este: Ingerilor Sai le va porunci pentru tine si ei te vor ridica pe maini, ca nu cumva piciorul tau sa ti-l izbesti de piatra“. Iisus i-a zis: „Dar mai este scris: Sa nu-L ispitesti pe Domnul Dumnezeul tau“. Diavolul L-a mai dus pe un munte foarte inalt si I-a aratat toate imparatiile lumii si slava lor si I-a zis: „Pe acestea toate ti le voi da tie daca vei cadea inaintea mea si mi te vei inchina“. Atunci Iisus i-a zis: „Mergi inapoia Mea, Satano, ca scris este: Domnului Dumnezeului tau sa I te inchini si numai Lui sa-I slujesti!“ Atunci diavolul L-a lasat; si iata, ingerii s'au apropiat de El si-I slujeau. (Matei 4, 1-11)

The Daily Gospel

At that time, Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterward He was hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread." But He answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'" Then the devil took Him to the holy city, and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, 'He will give His angels charge of you,' and 'On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'" Jesus said to him, "Again, it is written, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'" Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them; and he said to Him, "All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Be gone, Satan! for it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.'" Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him. (Matthew 4:1-11)
