    VERSE (10) -
    Mt 16:23 Jas 4:7 1Pe 5:9

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:10

    Entonces Jess le dice: Vete, Satans, que escrito est: Al Seor tu Dios adorars y a l solo servirs.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 4:10

    Verse 10. Get thee hence] Or, behind me, opisw mou. This is added by a multitude of the
    best MSS., VERSIONS, and FATHERS. This temptation savouring of nothing but diabolical impudence, Jesus did not treat it as the others; but, with Divine authority, commanded the tempter to return to his own place.

    In the course of this trial, it appears that our blessed Lord was tempted, 1st. To DISTRUST. Command these stones to become bread. 2dly. To PRESUMPTION. Cast thyself down. 3dly. To worldly AMBITION. All these will I give. 4thly. To IDOLATRY. Fall down and worship me, or do me homage. There is probably not a temptation of Satan, but is reducible to one or other of these four articles.

    From the whole we may learn: First. No man, howsoever holy, is exempted from temptation: for God manifested to the flesh was tempted by the devil.

    Secondly. That the best way to foil the adversary, is by the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, Eph. vi. 17.

    Thirdly. That to be tempted even to the greatest abominations (while a person resists) is not sin: for Christ was tempted to worship the DEVIL.

    Fourthly. That there is no temptation which is from its own nature, or favouring circumstances, irresistible. God has promised to bruise even Satan under our feet.

    As I wish to speak what I think most necessary on every subject, when I first meet it, and once for all, I would observe, first, That the fear of being tempted may become a most dangerous snare.

    Secondly, That when God permits a temptation or trial to come he will give grace to bear or overcome it.

    Thirdly, That our spiritual interests shall be always advanced, in proportion to our trials and faithful resistance.

    Fourthly, That a more than ordinary measure of Divine consolation shall be the consequence of every victory.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. Then saith Jesus to him, get thee hence, Satan . etc.] In ( Luke 4:8) it is get thee behind me: and so some copies read here, and is expressive of indignation and abhorrence; (see Matthew 16:23) rebuking his impudence, and detesting his impiety: he had borne his insults and temptations with great patience; he had answered him with mildness and gentleness; but now his behaviour to him was intolerable, which obliged him to show his resentment, exert his power and authority, and rid himself at once of so vile a creature; giving this reason for it; for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve . The place referred to is in ( Deuteronomy 6:13) thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him : to fear the Lord, and to worship him, is the same thing. Worship includes both an internal and external reverence of God: the word only is not in the original text, but is added by our Lord; and that very justly; partly to express the emphasis which is on the word him; and in perfect agreement with the context, which requires it; since it follows, ye shall not go after other Gods . Moreover, not to take notice of the Septuagint version, in which the word only is also added, Josephus f209 , the Jewish historian, referring to this law, says, because God is one, kai dei touton sebesyai monon , therefore he only is to be worshipped.

    And Aben Ezra f210 , a Jewish writer, explaining the last clause in the verse, and thou shalt swear by his name , uses the word only; and which indeed, of right, belongs to every clause in it. The meaning of our Lord in citing it is; that since the Lord God is the alone object of worship, it was horrid blasphemy in Satan to desire it might be given to him, and which could not be done without the greatest impiety.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - Concerning Christ's temptation, observe, that directly after he wa declared to be the Son of God, and the Saviour of the world, he wa tempted; great privileges, and special tokens of Divine favour, wil not secure any from being tempted. But if the Holy Spirit witness to our being adopted as children of God, that will answer all the suggestions of the evil spirit. Christ was directed to the combat. I we presume upon our own strength, and tempt the devil to tempt us, we provoke God to leave us to ourselves. Others are tempted, when draw aside of their own lust, and enticed, Jas 1:14; but our Lord Jesus ha no corrupt nature, therefore he was tempted only by the devil. In the temptation of Christ it appears that our enemy is subtle, spiteful, an very daring; but he can be resisted. It is a comfort to us that Chris suffered, being tempted; for thus it appears that our temptations, is not yielded to, are not sins, they are afflictions only. Satan aimed in all his temptations, to bring Christ to sin against God. 1. He tempte him to despair of his Father's goodness, and to distrust his Father' care concerning him. It is one of the wiles of Satan to take advantag of our outward condition; and those who are brought into straits have need to double their guard. Christ answered all the temptations of Satan with "It is written;" to set us an example, he appealed to what was written in the Scriptures. This method we must take, when at an time we are tempted to sin. Let us learn not to take any wrong course for our supply, when our wants are ever so pressing: in some way of other the Lord will provide. 2. Satan tempted Christ to presume upo his Father's power and protection, in a point of safety. Nor are an extremes more dangerous than despair and presumption, especially in the affairs of our souls. Satan has no objection to holy places as the scene of his assaults. Let us not, in any place, be off our watch. The holy city is the place, where he does, with the greatest advantage tempt men to pride and presumption. All high places are slipper places; advancements in the world makes a man a mark for Satan to shoo his fiery darts at. Is Satan so well versed in Scripture as to be able to quote it readily? He is so. It is possible for a man to have his head full of Scripture notions, and his mouth full of Scriptur expressions, while his heart is full of bitter enmity to God and to all goodness. Satan misquoted the words. If we go out of our way, out of the way of our duty, we forfeit the promise, and put ourselves out of God's protection. This passage, De 8:3, made against the tempter therefore he left out part. This promise is firm and stands good. But shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? No. 3. Satan tempte Christ to idolatry with the offer of the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. The glory of the world is the most charming temptatio to the unthinking and unwary; by that men are most easily imposed upon Christ was tempted to worship Satan. He rejected the proposal with abhorrence. "Get thee hence, Satan!" Some temptations are openl wicked; and they are not merely to be opposed, but rejected at once. It is good to be quick and firm in resisting temptation. If we resist the devil he will flee from us. But the soul that deliberates is almos overcome. We find but few who can decidedly reject such baits as Sata offers; yet what is a man profited if he gain the whole world, and los his own soul? Christ was succoured after the temptation, for his encouragement to go on in his undertaking, and for our encouragement to trust in him; for as he knew, by experience, what it was to suffer being tempted, so he knew what it was to be succoured, being tempted therefore we may expect, not only that he will feel for his tempte people, but that he will come to them with seasonable relief.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:10 {Get thee hence,
    Satan} (hupage, satana). The words "behind me" (opisw mou) belong to #Mt 16:23, not here. "Begone" Christ says to Satan. this temptation is the limit of diabolical suggestion and argues for the logical order in Matthew. "Satan" means the adversary and Christ so terms the devil here. The third time Jesus quotes Deuteronomy, this time #De 6:13, and repels the infamous suggestion by Scripture quotation. The words "him alone thou shalt serve" need be recalled today. Jesus will warn men against trying to serve God and mammon (#Mt 6:24). The devil as the lord of the evil world constantly tries to win men to the service of the world and God. this is his chief camouflage for destroying a preacher's power for God. The word here in #Mt 4:10 for serve is latreuseis from latris a hired servant, one who works for hire, qen render worship.
