MATTHEW 4: 1, 5-6, 8-9
Jesus was led by the Spirit, not by Satan. (compare Matthew 4: 1, 5-6, 8-9; similar changes were made in Luke 4: 2, 5-11)
  1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be with God.

  5 Then Jesus was taken up into the holy city, and the Spirit setteth him on the pinnacle of the temple,
  6 Then the devil came unto him and said, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

  8 And again, Jesus was in the Spirit, and it taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
  9 And the devil came unto him again, and said, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
