These twelve Jesus sent forth, when he had charged them, saying, Go not away to gentiles, and enter not any city of the Samaritans; but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And, as ye go, proclaim, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. read more.
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons; freely ye received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass, in your girdles; nor bag for the journey, nor two coats, nor sandals, nor a staff. For the laborer is worthy of his living. And into whatever city or town ye enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye leave the place. And as ye enter the house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye go out of that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. Truly do I say to you, It will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city. Lo! I send you forth as sheep into the midst of wolves. Be therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men. For they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; and ye will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, that ye may bear testimony to them and to the gentiles. But when they deliver you up, be not anxious as to how or What ye shall speak; for it will be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you. And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children will rise up against their parent, and put them to death; and ye will be hated by all on account of my name. But he that endureth to the end will be saved. And when they persecute you in one city, flee to another. For truly do I say to you, Ye will not have gone over the cities of Israel till the Son of man hath come. A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple to be as his teacher, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they so call those of his household! Fear them not therefore. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed; and hid, that will not be known. What I say to you in darkness, speak ye in the light; and what ye hear in the ear, proclaim ye upon the housetops. And fear not those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? and not one of them shall 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 acknowledge me before men, him will I also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven. But whoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. Think not that I came to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man at variance with his father, and a daughter with her mother, and a bride with her motherinlaw; and they of a mans own household will be his foes. 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 doth not take his cross, and follow me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life will lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake will find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet because he is a prophet, will receive a prophets reward, and he that receiveth a righteous man because he is a righteous man, will receive a righteous mans reward. And whoever shall give to drink only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple, truly do I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.

And whatever place shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye go thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony to them.

After these things, the Lord appointed also seventy others, and sent them two and two before him into every city and place where he himself was about to come. And he said to them, The harvest is great, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers for his harvest. Go forth; lo! I send you as lambs into the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; salute no one by the way. And into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall return to you. And abide in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat what is set before you, and heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, The kingdom of God hath come near to you. But into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go out into its streets and say, Even the dust of your city that cleaveth to our feet we wipe off to you; but know this, that the kingdom of God hath come near. And I tell you, that it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe to thee, Chorazin! woe to thee, Bethsaida! for if the miracles that were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum! shalt thou be exalted to heaven? thou shalt be brought down to the underworld. He that hearkeneth to you, hearkeneth to me; and he that rejecteth you, rejecteth me; but he that rejecteth me, rejecteth him that sent me.

This charge I commit to thee, my child Timothy, in accordance with the directions of the prophets before given to thee, that thou mayst in them war the good warfare, having faith, and a good conscience, which some thrusting away made shipwreck concerning the faith; of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I delivered to Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme.

Do not sharply rebuke an aged man, but exhort him as a father; the younger men, as brethren; the elder women, as mothers; the younger, as sisters, with all purity. Honor as widows those that are widows indeed. read more.
But if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to show piety to their own family, and to requite their parents; for this is acceptable before God. Now she that is a widow indeed, and left alone, hath set her hope on God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day; but she that giveth herself up to pleasure is dead while she liveth. These things also enjoin, that they may be blameless. But if any one provideth not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. Let a widow be put on the list when not less than sixty years old, having been the wife of one husband, well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work. But younger widows refuse; for when they become wanton against Christ, they desire to marry; falling into condemnation, because they have cast off their first faith; and withal they learn to be idle, going about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also, and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. I desire therefore that the younger widows marry, bear children, guide the house, give no occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some have already turned aside after Satan. If any man or woman that is a believer have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be burdened, that it may relieve those that are widows indeed. Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor; especially they who labor in the word and in teaching. For the Scripture saith, "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox while he is treading out the grain"; and, "The laborer is worthy of his wages." Against an elder receive not an accusation without two or three witnesses. Those that sin rebuke before all, that the rest also may fear. I charge thee before God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without prejudging, doing nothing with partiality. Lay hands hastily on no one, neither share in other mens sins. Keep thyself pure.

For which cause I remind thee to stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the laying on of my hands; for God gave us not the spirit of cowardice, but of power, and of love, and of admonition. Be not then ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but endure hardship with me for the gospel through the power of God, read more.
who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and the grace which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and incorruption to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a herald, and an apostle, and a teacher of the gentiles. For which cause I suffer also these things. But I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which he hath committed to me unto that day. Hold the pattern of sound words, which thou heardest from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus;

I charge thee before God, and Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom; preach the word, be urgent in season, out of season, confute, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come, when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own desires will they heap to themselves teachers; because they have itching ears; read more.
and they will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables. But be thou watchful in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fully accomplish thy ministry. For I am already about to be offered as a sacrifice, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me at that day, and not to me only, but to all those who have loved his appearing.

Truly do I say to you, It will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city. Lo! I send you forth as sheep into the midst of wolves.

Wherefore I testify to you this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men; for I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.



And he calleth to him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over the unclean spirits; and commanded them that they should take nothing for the way but a staff only; no bread, no bag, no money in their girdle; but to be shod with sandals; and, Do not put on two coats. read more.
And he said to them, Wherever ye enter a house, there abide fill ye leave that place. And whatever place shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye go thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony to them.

And he called together the twelve, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. And he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to heal.

And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, into the mountain, where Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him, they knelt down before him; but some doubted. And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, All power was given to me in heaven and on earth. read more.
Go, and make all nations my disciples, baptizing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things, whatever I have commanded you. And, lo! I am with you always, unto the end of the world.

Afterward he manifested himself to the eleven themselves, as they were reclining at table, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen. And he said to them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the glad tidings to the whole creation. He that believeth and is baptized will be saved; but he that doth not believe will be condemned. read more.
And these signs will accompany believers: In my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover. So then, the Lord, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down on the right hand of God; and they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs which followed it.]

After these things, the Lord appointed also seventy others, and sent them two and two before him into every city and place where he himself was about to come.

And he said to them, These are my words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which are written in the Law of Moses, and the Prophets, and the Psalms, concerning me. Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures. And he said to them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and should rise from the dead on the third day, read more.
and that repentance for the remission of sins should be preached in his name among all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Ye are witnesses of these things. And I send forth upon you that which hath been promised by my Father; but do ye tarry in the city, until ye are endued with power from on high.

What I mean is this, that each of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were ye baptized the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; read more.
that no one may say that ye were baptized into my name. And I baptized also the household of Stephanas; I am not aware that I baptized any one besides. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

Be therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

And Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, and among his own kindred, and in his own house. And he could not do any miracle there, except that he laid his hand upon a few sick persons, and cured them. And he wondered at their want of faith. And he went about the surrounding villages teaching. read more.

And he said to them, Wherever ye enter a house, there abide fill ye leave that place. And whatever place shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye go thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony to them. And they went out and preached that men should repent;



and turning into ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, condemned them to overthrow, making them an example for those who in after time should live ungodly;



And whatever place shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye go thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony to them.

even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them, in like manner with them giving themselves over to fornication, and going away after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of everlasting fire.

And into whatever house ye enter, there abide, and from it take your departure. And whoever shall not receive you, shake off, when ye leave that city, even the dust from your feet as a testimony against them. And they departed, and went through the towns publishing the glad tidings, and performing cures everywhere.

And he said to him, A certain man made a great supper, and invited many. And at the hour of supper he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, Come, for things are now ready. And all with one accord began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, I have bought a piece of land, and must needs go out and see it; I pray that I may be excused. read more.
And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and am going out to try them; I pray that I may be excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. And the servant came, and reported these things to his lord. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, the blind, and the lame. And the servant said, Lord, what thou didst command hath been done, and yet there is room. And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and constrain them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say to you, that none of those men who were invited shall taste of my supper.

He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and gave them ten pounds, and said to them, Trade with these, till I come. But his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. read more.
And it came to pass, when he had returned, having received the kingdom, that he commanded these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what each had gained by trading. And the first came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said to him, Well done, good servant! because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said also to this servant, And be thou over five cities. And another came, saying, Lord, behold thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin. For I feared thee, because thou art a harsh man; thou takest up what thou didst not lay down, and reapest what thou didst not sow. He saith to him, Out of thy mouth will I judge thee, wicked servant! thou knewest that I was a harsh man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I did not sow; why then didst thou not put my money into a bank? Then I at my coming might have received it back with interest. And he said to them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath the ten pounds. (And they said to him, He hath ten pounds, Lord.) I say to you, that to every one who hath, will be given; but from him that hath not, even what he hath will be taken away. But as for those enemies of mine, who would not that I should reign over them, bring them here, and slay them before me.

Then he began to upbraid the cities wherein most of his miracles were done, because they did not repent. Woe to thee, Chorazin! woe to thee, Bethsaida! for if the miracles that were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say to you, It will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. read more.
And thou, Capernaum! shalt thou be exalted to heaven? Thou shalt be brought down to the underworld; for if the miracles which were done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say to you, that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.





And that servant who knew his lords will, and did not make ready, nor do according to his will, will be beaten with many stripes;


And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye go out of that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. Truly do I say to you, It will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; some of them ye will kill and crucify, and some of them ye will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city; that on you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Barachiah, whom ye slew, between the temple and the altar. Truly do I say to you, All these things will come upon this generation. read more.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killeth the prophets, and stoneth those who are sent to her! How often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Lo! your house is left to you desolate.

When once the master of the house shall have risen, and shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, open to us, and he answering shall say to you, I know not whence ye are; then will ye begin to say, We ate and drank in thy presence, and thou didst teach in our streets. And he will say, I tell you, I know not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. read more.
There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth there, when ye see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.


And he calleth to him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over the unclean spirits; and commanded them that they should take nothing for the way but a staff only; no bread, no bag, no money in their girdle; but to be shod with sandals; and, Do not put on two coats. read more.
