"Then Jesus was led away by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil. After having fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter, having approached, said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves." Jesus answered, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. The devil carried him into the holy city, placed him on the top of the temple, and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, He will give orders to his angels concerning you; And they will carry you on your hands, lest your foot strike against a stone. Jesus saith unto him, It is written also, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. The devil carried him again to a very high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, and said to him: I will give you all these things, if you worship and worship me. Jesus said to him, Depart, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him alone." So the devil left him. And behold, angels came to Jesus, and served him"

"For the rest, be strong in the Lord, and by his omnipotent strength. Put on all the weapons of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not have to fight against flesh and blood, but against the dominations, against the authorities, against the princes of this world of darkness, against the wicked spirits in heavenly places. Wherefore take all the armor of God, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, and hold firm after having overcome all things. Stand therefore: have your loins the truth for your girdle; put on the breastplate of righteousness; put at your feet the zeal of the gospel of peace; take above all that the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the fiery darts of the evil one; take also the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Make at all times by the Spirit all kinds of prayers and supplications"
