T that time: Jefus was led by the spirit into the

desert, to be tempted by the Devil. And when he had fafted forty days and forty nights he was afterwards hungry. And the tempter coming, faid to him: If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered, and said, It is written: Not by bread alone doth man live, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Goue. Then the Devil took him up into the holy city, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and faid to him: If thou be the Son of God cast thyself down, for it is written: He hath given his Angels charge over thee, and in their hands Mall they bear thee up, left perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said to him: It is again written: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again the Devil took kim

up into a very high mountain, and thewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and all the glory of thein, and said to him: All these will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and adore me.

Then Jesus faith to him: Begone Satan; for it is written : The Lord thy God halt thou a dore, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the Devil left him, and behold Angels caine, and ininistred to him. CREDO.

As the Thepherd goeth to seek his flock in the day, 'when he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I visit my sheep, and deliver them out of all the places, where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
