Matthew 10:7–16

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.

A Hard Road before Them

16 aBehold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so 1be bshrewd as serpents and cinnocent as doves.
