The tempter... and the Angels

"Again the devil took Him up into a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, and said to Him: All these will I give Thee, if falling down Thou wilt adore me. Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan! for it is written: The Lord thy God thou shalt adore, and Him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil left Him. And behold Angels came, and ministered to Him."

--The Gospel of Saint Matthew, Chapter 4
