Jesus said to him, Again, it is written, "You shall not test the Lord your God.''
The Lord Jesus defeated Satan in the first temptation by quoting the Scriptures. Thus, in the second temptation, the tempter himself quoted them. He seemed to be saying, “Jesus, You quoted the Bible. I know the Bible also. Let me quote a verse to You.” But the Lord Jesus said, “Again it is written.” The word “again” is very strong. Do not think that you can quote the Bible and that the enemy cannot. Satan knows more of the Bible than you do. Therefore, the best safeguard is to have a word again as either a balance or a confirmation. Then, in the second temptation, the enemy will also be defeated.
