And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53 But uthey did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples vJames and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, 1just as wElijah did?”
