These twelve did Jesus send forth, commanding them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter not: but go rather to the sheep that are lost of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is approaching. read more.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor a scrip for the journey, nor two coats, nor sandals, nor stick: for the workman is worthy of his food. And into whatsoever city or village ye enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye depart. And when ye come into a family, salute it: and if the family shall be deserving, your peace shall come upon it: and if it be not deserving, your peace shall return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor attend to your discourses, go out of that house, or city, and shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore prudent as serpents, and harmless as doves. But be on your guard against men: for they will deliver you up to the sanhedrim, and scourge you in their synagogues. And ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the heathen. But when they shall deliver you up, be under no anxiety what ye shall say; for it shall be given you in that very hour what ye should speak: for it is not you who are speaking, but the Spirit of your Father which is speaking in you. Then brother shall surrender brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end, that man shall be saved. But when they shall persecute you in one city, flee unto another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not complete your circuit through the cities of Israel before the Son of man comes. The disciple is not superior to his teacher, nor the servant above his master. It is sufficient if the disciple be as his teacher, and the servant as his master. If they have called the master of the family Beelzebub, how much more his domestics? However, fear them not: for there is nothing concealed, which shall not be discovered; nor hid, which shall not be known. What I say unto you in the dark, publish in the light: and what ye hear whispered into the ear, proclaim upon the roofs. And be not afraid of those who kill the body, and cannot kill the soul: but fear him rather who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall to the ground without your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Every one therefore who shall make confession of me before men, of him will I also make confession before my Father who is in heaven. But whosoever shall disown me before men, him will I also disown before my Father who is in heaven. Think not that I am come to bring peace to the earth: I came not to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And the enemies of a man shall be those of his own house. He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that preserveth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall preserve it. He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive the reward of a righteous man. And whosoever shall give to one of these little ones, if but a cup of cold water to drink, in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

And as many as shall not receive you, neither hearken to you, when ye go from thence, shake off the dust from beneath your feet, for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

THEN after these things the Lord appointed other seventy persons also, and sent them, two and two before his face, into every city and place, whither he himself designed to go. He said therefore unto them, The harvest indeed is plenteous, but the labourers few: pray ye therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he would send out labourers into his harvest. Go forth! behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor sandals: and stay to salute no man on the road. And into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the Son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; but if not, it shall return back to you again. And in the same family abide, eating and drinking such as they have: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not about from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they welcome you, eat whatever is set before you: and heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go out into the streets of it, and say, Even the dust of your city, which sticks to us, we shake off against you: nevertheless this know, that the kingdom of God is come near to you. Now I tell you, that it shall be more tolerable for Sodom in that day, than for that city. Wo to thee Chorazin! wo to thee Bethsaida! for if the miracles which have been done in thee, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, long ago sitting in sackcloth and ashes, would they have repented. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you. And thou Capernaum, which hast been lifted up to heaven, shalt be cast down to hell. He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth Him that sent me.

This commandment, son Timothy, I give thee, according to the prophecies which were before delivered concerning thee, that by them thou mightest war a good warfare; holding faith and a good conscience, which some having renounced, as touching the faith, have been shipwrecked: of whom are Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered over unto Satan, that they may be corrected, so as to blaspheme no more.

REBUKE not harshly an aged man, but admonish him as a father; the younger men as brethren; the aged women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. Honour the widows, that are widows indeed. read more.
But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them learn as their first duty to shew their piety towards their own family, and make a grateful return to their progenitors: for this is becoming and acceptable before God. But she who is a widow indeed, and abandoned to solitude, hopeth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. But she who lives voluptuously is dead, though she liveth. And these things inculcate, that they may be blameless. But if any man provide not for his own relations, and especially for those more immediately of his own family, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let no widow be put on the list under sixty years of age, who hath been the wife of one husband, bringing attestation of her good works; that she hath well educated her children, that she hath been hospitable to strangers, that she hath washed the saints feet, that she hath assisted the afflicted, that she hath followed diligently every good work. But the younger widows reject: for when they give themselves to wantonness contrary to Christ, they will marry; incurring censure, for having violated their former engagement. And at the same time also they learn to be idle, visiting about in the houses; and not merely idle, but talkative and inquisitive, speaking things they ought not. I would therefore have the younger widows to marry, bear children, govern their house, give no occasion to the adversary to bring a reproach on them. For some are already turned aside after Satan. But if any man or woman who believes hath widows their relations, let him provide for them, and let not the church be burdened; that there may be a sufficiency for the real widows. Let the elders who preside properly be counted worthy of double honour, especially those who are laborious in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture saith, "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox while he treadeth out the corn." And again, "The labourer is worthy of his hire." Against a presbyter receive not an accusation, except it be from two or three witnesses. Those who sin rebuke before all, that the rest also may tremble. I adjure thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by partiality. Lay hands hastily on no man, nor share another's sins: keep thyself pure;

For which cause I remind thee that thou fan into a flame the divine gift, which is in thee by the imposition of my hands. For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of courage, and of love, and of sobriety. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but suffer affliction with me in the gospel, supported by the power of God; read more.
who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before time had a beginning; but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and brought to light life and immortality by the gospel: whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For which cause also I suffer these things; but I am not ashamed: for I know on whom I have placed my confidence, and am persuaded that he is mighty to guard my deposit unto the great day. Model thy teaching according to the pattern of the sound discourses, which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

I ADJURE thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; preach the word, be urgent, in season, out of season; reprove, enjoin, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own inclinations will set up a herd of teachers for themselves, having the itch of hearing; read more.
and will turn away their ears from the truth, and listen unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fully discharge thy ministry. For I am now ready to be sacrificed, and the time of my dissolution approaches. I have struggled hard in the honourable contest, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: yet not to me only, but also to all who have loved his appearing.

And said unto them, These are the sayings which I spake unto you, when I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me. Then opened he thoroughly their understanding, that they should understand the scriptures, and said to them, That thus it is written, and thus must the Messiah suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day read more.

And called the twelve, and began to send them two and two, and gave them authority over unclean spirits. And he commanded them, that they should take nothing for the journey, except a staff only; neither scrip, nor bread, nor even brass money in their purse: wearing sandals, and not to be clothed with two coats. read more.
And he said unto them, Wheresoever ye enter into a family, there abide until ye depart thence.

Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city. And going forth, they preached, that men should repent.

Now being arisen early, on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. She going, told it to those who had been with him, as they were wailing and weeping. And they, when they heard that he was alive, and had been seen by her, gave no credit to her. read more.
Then after this, he was manifested under another form, to two of them as they were walking, and going into the country. And they came back and told the news to the rest; neither did they believe them. Afterwards he shewed himself to the eleven, as they were sitting at table, and upbraided them for their infidelity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
