6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said into him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
