The Twelve Commissioned And Sent Out
1 And having called his twelve disciples, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every weakness. 2 And the names of the twelve sent are these: first, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James, he of Zebedee and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax collector; James, he of Alpheus, and Lebbeus, he surnamed Thaddeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, he also having delivered him up.
5 These twelve Jesus sent, having announced to them, saying, Go not in the way of the nations, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not. 6 But rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And going, proclaim, saying, That the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near. 8 Cure the sick, cleanse the leprous, rouse the dead, cast out demons; as a gift ye have received, as a gift give. 9 Provide not gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses; 10 Nor wallet for the way, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor rod: for the laborer is worthy of his food.
11 And to whatever city or town ye should come in, examine who in it is worthy; and there remain till ye go forth. 12 And entering into a house, do ye greet it. 13 And if the house should be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever should not receive you, nor hear your words, coming out of that house or that city, shake off the cloud of the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say to you, it shall be more supportable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
7 And he calls the twelve, and began to send them, two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; 8 And enjoined them, that they take nothing for the way, except a rod only; no travelling-sack, no bread, no brass in the purse: 9 But bound with sandals.; and not clothed with two coats. 10 And he said to them, Wherever ye come into a house, there remain ye even till ye should come forth thence. 11 And as many as receive you not, nor hear you, going out thence, shake off the heap of dust under your feet for testimony to them. Truly I say to you, It shall be more supportable for the Sodomites or Gomorrhites in the day of judgment, than that city.
3 And he said to them, Take away nothing for the way, neither rods, nor wallet, nor bread, nor silver; nor to have two coats apiece. 4 And into whatever house ye come in, remain there, and come out thence. 5 And as many as should not receive you, having come out of that city, and shake off the cloud of dust from your feet for testimony against them. 6 And having gone out, they went through the towns, proclaiming the good news, and healing every where.
