A Verse to Share

Be forewarned that Satan knows the Bible very well but twists it to his own devices. When he tempted Jesus, he quoted Psalms.

Matthew 4:6

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.’ ”
