Matthew 10:5–15

5 aThese twelve Jesus sent out after instructing them: Do not 1go 2in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter any city of the bSamaritans;

6 but rather go to athe lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as you go, 1preach, saying,aThe kingdom of heaven 2is at hand.’

8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.

9 aDo not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,

10 or a 1bag for your journey, or even two 2coats, or sandals, or a staff; for athe worker is worthy of his 3support.

11 And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay 1at his house until you leave that city.

12 As you enter the 1house, agive it your 2greeting.

13 If the house is worthy, 1give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, 2take back your blessing of peace.

14 Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, ashake the dust off your feet.

15 Truly I say to you, ait will be more tolerable for the land of bSodom and Gomorrah in cthe day of judgment than for that city.
