ማቴዎስ 4:1-25

የኢየሱስ መፈተን

4፥1-11 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 1፥12፡13፤ ሉቃ 4፥1-13

1ከዚህ በኋላ መንፈስ ቅዱስ ኢየሱስን በዲያብሎስ ይፈተን ዘንድ ወደ ምድረ በዳ ወሰደው። 2አርባ ቀንና አርባ ሌሊት ከጾመ በኋላ ተራበ። 3ፈታኙም ወደ ኢየሱስ ቀርቦ፣ “የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ ከሆንህ እነዚህን ድንጋዮች እንጀራ እንዲሆኑ እዘዝ” አለው።

4ኢየሱስም፣ “ ‘ሰው ከእግዚአብሔር አፍ በሚወጣው ቃል ሁሉ እንጂ በእንጀራ ብቻ አይኖርም’ ተብሎ ተጽፎአል” ሲል መለሰለት።

5ቀጥሎም ዲያብሎስ ኢየሱስን ወደ ቅድስት ከተማ በመውሰድ ከቤተ መቅደሱም ዐናት ላይ አውጥቶ፣ 6“የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ ከሆንህ ራስህን ወደ መሬት ወርውር፤ እንዲህ ተብሎ ተጽፎአልና፤

“ ‘እግርህ በድንጋይ እንዳይሰናከል፣

በእጃቸው ያነሡህ ዘንድ፣

መላእክቱን ስለ አንተ ያዝልሃል።’ ”

7ኢየሱስም፣ “እንደዚሁም በመጻሕፍት፣ ‘እግዚአብሔር አምላክህን አትፈታተነው’ ተብሎ ተጽፎአል” በማለት መለሰለት።

8እንደ ገናም ዲያብሎስ ኢየሱስን እጅግ ከፍ ወዳለ ተራራ አወጣው፤ የዓለምንም መንግሥታት ከነክብራቸው አሳየውና፣ 9“ወድቀህ ብትሰግድልኝ ይህን ሁሉ እሰጥሃለሁ” አለው።

10ኢየሱስም፣ “አንተ ሰይጣን ከፊቴ ራቅ! ‘ለአምላክህ ለእግዚአብሔር ስገድ፤ እርሱንም ብቻ አምልክ’ ተብሎ ተጽፎአልና” አለው።

11ከዚያም ዲያብሎስ ትቶት ሄደ፤ መላእክትም መጥተው አገለገሉት።

ኢየሱስ ስብከት መጀመሩ

12ኢየሱስ የዮሐንስን መታሰር በሰማ ጊዜ ወደ ገሊላ ተመለሰ። 13የናዝሬትንም ከተማ ትቶ፣ በዛብሎንና በንፍታሌም አካባቢ በባሕሩ አጠገብ በምትገኘው በቅፍርናሆም ከተማ መኖር ጀመረ። 14በዚህም በነቢዩ ኢሳይያስ እንዲህ ተብሎ የተነገረው ትንቢት ተፈጸመ፤

15“የዛብሎን ምድር፣ የንፍታሌም ምድር፣

ከዮርዳኖስ ማዶ በባሕር መንገድ አጠገብ፣

ያለው የአሕዛብ ገሊላ፣

16በጨለማ የሚኖር ሕዝብ፣

ታላቅ ብርሃን አየ፤

በሞት ጥላ ምድር ላለው፣

ብርሃን ወጣለት።”

17ከዚያ ጊዜ አንሥቶ ኢየሱስ፣ “ንስሓ ግቡ፤ መንግሥተ ሰማያት ቀርባለችና” እያለ መስበክ ጀመረ።

የመጀመሪያዎቹ ደቀ መዛሙርት መጠራት

4፥18-22 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 1፥16-20፤ ሉቃ 5፥2-11፤ ዮሐ 1፥35-42

18ኢየሱስ በገሊላ ባሕር አጠገብ ሲያልፍ፣ ሁለት ወንድማማቾች ማለትም ጴጥሮስ የተባለውን ስምዖንንና ወንድሙን እንድርያስን አያቸው። ዓሣ አጥማጆች ነበሩና መረባቸውን ወደ ባሕሩ ይጥሉ ነበር። 19ኢየሱስም፣ “ኑ፣ ተከተሉኝ፤ ሰዎችን አጥማጆች አደርጋችኋለሁ” አላቸው። 20ወዲያው መረባቸውን ትተው ተከተሉት።

21አለፍ እንዳለም፣ ሌሎች ሁለት ወንድማማቾች፣ የዘብዴዎስን ልጅ ያዕቆብንና ወንድሙን ዮሐንስን አየ። ከአባታቸው ከዘብዴዎስ ጋር በጀልባ ውስጥ መረባቸውን ያበጁ ነበር። ኢየሱስም ጠራቸው፤ 22ወዲያውኑ ጀልባቸውንም ሆነ አባታቸውን ትተው ተከተሉት።

የበሽተኞች መፈወስ

23ኢየሱስም በምኵራቦቻቸው እያስተማረ፣ የእግዚአብሔርን መንግሥት የምሥራች ቃል እየሰበከ፣ በሕዝቡ መካከል ማንኛውንም ደዌና ሕመም እየፈወሰ በመላው ገሊላ ይዘዋወር ነበር። 24ከዚህም የተነሣ ዝናው በመላዋ ሶርያ ተሰማ፤ ሕዝቡም በተለያዩ በሽታዎች የታመሙትን፣ በክፉ ደዌ የሚሠቃዩትን፣ አጋንንት ያደሩባቸውን፣ የሚጥል በሽታ ያለባቸውን፣ ሽባዎችን ሁሉ ወደ እርሱ አመጡ፤ ፈወሳቸውም። 25ከዚህም የተነሣ ከገሊላ፣ ከ “ዐሥሩ ከተሞች”፣ ከኢየሩሳሌም፣ ከይሁዳና ከዮርዳኖስ ማዶ የመጡ ብዙ ሰዎች ተከተሉት።

Matthew 4:1-25

Jesus is tested in the wilderness

1Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted4:1 The Greek for tempted can also mean tested. by the devil. 2After fasting for forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3The tempter came to him and said, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.’

4Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”4:4 Deut. 8:3

5Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the highest point of the temple. 6‘If you are the Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down. For it is written:

‘ “He will command his angels concerning you,

and they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”4:6 Psalm 91:11,12

7Jesus answered him, ‘It is also written: “Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”4:7 Deut. 6:16

8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour. 9‘All this I will give you,’ he said, ‘if you will bow down and worship me.’

10Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”4:10 Deut. 6:13

11Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

Jesus begins to preach

12When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he withdrew to Galilee. 13Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali – 14to fulfil what was said through the prophet Isaiah:

15‘Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,

the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles –

16the people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of the shadow of death

a light has dawned.’4:16 Isaiah 9:1,2

17From that time on Jesus began to preach, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.’

Jesus calls his first disciples

18As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’ 20At once they left their nets and followed him.

21Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Jesus heals the sick

23Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and illness among the people. 24News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralysed; and he healed them. 25Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis,4:25 That is, the Ten Cities Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.
