10 1Now after these things the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent
them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he
himself was about to come.
2And he said unto them, The harvest indeed is
plenteous, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest.
3Go your ways;
behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves.
purse, no wallet, no shoes; and salute no man on the way.
whatsoever house ye shall enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
6And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him: but if
not, it shall turn to you again.
7And in that same house remain, eating
and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire.
Go not from house to house.
8And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they
receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
9and heal the sick
that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto
10But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, and they receive you not,
go out into the streets thereof and say,
11Even the dust from your city,
that cleaveth to our feet, we wipe off against you: nevertheless know this,
that the kingdom of God is come nigh.
12I say unto you, it shall be more
tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
13Woe unto thee,
Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in
Tyre and Sidon, which were done in you, they would have repented long ago,
sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre
and Sidon in the judgment, than for you.
15And thou, Capernaum, shalt
thou be exalted unto heaven? thou shalt be brought down unto Hades.
that heareth you heareth me; and he that rejecteth you rejecteth me; and he
that rejecteth me rejecteth him that sent me.
17And the seventy returned
with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject unto us in thy name.
18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen as lightning from heaven.
19Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise
20Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are
subject unto you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said, I thank thee, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the
wise and understanding, and didst reveal them unto babes: yea, Father; for so
it was well-pleasing in thy sight.
22All things have been delivered unto
me of my Father: and no one knoweth who the Son is, save the Father; and who
the Father is, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal
23And turning to the disciples, he said privately, Blessed
are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
24for I say unto
you, that many prophets and kings desired to see the things which ye see, and
saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not.
25And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and made trial of him, saying,
Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26And he said unto him,
What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27And he answering said,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as
28And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and
thou shalt live.
29But he, desiring to justify himself, said unto Jesus,
And who is my neighbor?
30Jesus made answer and said, A certain man was
going down from Jerusalem to Jericho; and he fell among robbers, who both
stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
chance a certain priest was going down that way: and when he saw him, he
passed by on the other side.
32And in like manner a Levite also, when he
came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side.
certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him,
he was moved with compassion,
34and came to him, and bound up his wounds,
pouring on them oil and wine; and he set him on his own beast, and
brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35And on the morrow he took
out two shillings, and gave them to the host, and said, Take care of him; and
whatsoever thou spendest more, I, when I come back again, will repay thee.
36Which of these three, thinkest thou, proved neighbor unto him that fell
among the robbers?
37And he said, He that showed mercy on him. And Jesus
said unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
38Now as they went on their way,
he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received
him into her house.
39And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at
the Lord's feet, and heard his word.
40But Martha was cumbered about much
serving; and she came up to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my
sister did leave me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41But the Lord answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art
anxious and troubled about many things:
42but one thing is needful: for
Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
