Luke 10:1–18

SENDING OUT THE SEVENTY-TWO

10 After this, the Lord appointed seventy-twoE others, and he sent them ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself was about to go. He told them,oThe harvestp is abundant, but the workersq are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.r Now go; I’m sending you out like lambs among wolves.s Don’t carry a money-bag,t traveling bag,u or sandals;v don’t greet anyone along the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peacew to this household.’ If a person of peace is there, your peacex will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they offer, for the worker is worthy of his wages.y Don’t move from house to house. When you enter any town, and they welcome you, eat the things set before you.z Heal the sickaa who are there, and tell them, ‘The kingdom of Godab has come nearac you.’ 10 When you enter any town, and they don’t welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11 We are wiping off even the dust of your town that clings to our feet as a witness against you.ad Know this for certain: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, on that dayae it will be more tolerable for Sodomaf than for that town.ag

UNREPENTANT TOWNS

13 Woeah to you,ai Chorazin!aj Woe to you, Bethsaida!ak For if the miraclesal that were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon,am they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.an 14 But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgmentao than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum,ap will you be exalted to heaven?aq No, you will go down to Hades.ar 16 Whoever listens to you listens to me.as Whoever rejects you rejects me.at And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”au

THE RETURN OF THE SEVENTY-TWO

17 The seventy-twoF,av returned with joy, saying,aw “Lord, even the demonsax submit to us in your name.”ay

18 He said to them, I watched Satanaz fall from heaven like lightning.ba
