This statement is not in Proverbs; it's from Deuteronomy 8:3 - So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.

Jesus quotes the passage in Matthew 4:4 (parallel in Luke 4:4).
