Mormon Lent, Day 3

For Day 3 of Lent, we have translated Mark 1:12–13:

Stephen (from Greek):
Then immediately the Spirit drove [Jesus] into the wilderness. He was tested by Satan for forty days in the wilderness, all the while with wild beasts, as angels ministered to him.

Jasmin (a better translation from Greek):
And immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tested by Satan. And he was with the beasts, and the angels attended to him.
Neal (from Latin):

And at once the Spirit expelled him into the desert. And he was in the desert for XL days and XL nights, being tempted of Satan, and he was with the beasts, and angels attended to him.  
I found this straightforward narrative much easier to translate than the last two.
