Luke 10

10 After these things the Lord aappointed bother cseventy also, and dsent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, eThe harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: fbehold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. gCarry neither hpurse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and isalute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, kPeace be to this house. And if lthe son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat msuch things as are set before you: nAnd heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, oThe kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off pagainst you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that othe kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable qin that day for Sodom, than for that city.

13 rWoe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, ssitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon qat the judgment, than for you. 15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16 tHe that heareth you heareth me; and uhe that despiseth you despiseth me; xand he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

17 And ythe seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, zeven the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, aI beheld Satan as lightning bfall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power cto tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, dthat the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because eyour names are written in heaven.

21 fIn that hour Jesus grejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so hit seemed good in thy sight. 22 ||All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. 23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, iBlessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

25 And, behold, a certain jlawyer stood up, and ktempted him, saying, lMaster, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 27 And he answering said, mThou 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 nthy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and othou shalt live. 29 But he, willing to pjustify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man qwent down from Jerusalem to rJericho, and fell among sthieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there qcame down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he tpassed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and tpassed by on the other side. 33 But a certain uSamaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and xbound up his wounds, pouring in xoil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two ||pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the sthieves? 37 And he said, He that yshewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named zMartha areceived him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called bMary, which also csat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40 But zMartha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, zMartha, Martha, dthou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But eone thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen fthat good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
