Matthew 4:1-25

1 Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil. 2 And having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 And the one tempting, having come to Him, said “If You are Son of God, speak, that these stones may become loaves of bread.” 4 But answering He said, “It has been written: ‘The man shall live not by bread alone, but by every word coming out of the mouth of God.’” 5 Then the devil takes Him to the holy city and sets Him upon the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and says to him, “If You are Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it has been written: ‘He will give orders to His angels concerning You, and will they bear You up in their hands, lest ever You strike Your foot against a stone.’” 7 Jesus said to him, “Again it has been written: ‘You shall not test the Lord your God.’” 8 Again the devil takes Him to a mountain exceedingly high and shows to Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he says to Him, “All these things I will give to You, if falling down, You will worship me.” 10 Then Jesus says to him, “Get you away, Satan! For it has been written: ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve.’” 11 Then the devil leaves Him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to Him. 12 And having heard that John had been arrested, He withdrew into Galilee. 13 And having left Nazareth, having come, he dwelt at Capernaum, on the sea-side in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it might be fulfilled that having been spoken through the prophet Isaiah, saying: 15 “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles— 16 the people sitting in darkness have seen a great light, and to those sitting in the land and shadow of death, a light has dawned on them.” 17 From that time Jesus began to proclaim and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near!” 18 Now walking beside the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And He says to them, “Come follow after Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 And immediately having left the nets, they followed Him. 21 And having gone on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets. And He called them, 22 and immediately having left the boat and their father they followed Him. 23 And He was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people. 24 And the news of Him went out into all Syria. And they brought to Him all the sick having various diseases and oppressing pains, and being possessed by demons, and having seizures, and paralytics—and He healed them. 25 And there followed Him great crowds from Galilee, and the Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

Romans 13:4

4 For he is God’s servant to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For He is God’s servant, an avenger for wrath to the one doing evil.

Matthew 26:52-54

52 Then Jesus says to him, “Return your sword into its place; for all those having taken the sword, will perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I am not able to call upon My Father, and He will furnish to Me presently more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?”

Matthew 5:38-39

38 You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist the evil person. Instead, whoever shall strike you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
