10:1 After these things, the Lord appointed other seventy also,
and sent them two and two before his face into every city, and
place, whither he himself would come.
10:2 Therefore said he to them, The harvest truly [is] great,
but the laborers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.
10:3 Go: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
10:4 Carry neither purse, nor sack, nor shoes: and salute no man
by the way.
10:5 And into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace [be] to
10:6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest
upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such
things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go
not from house to house.
10:8 And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat
such things as are set before you.
10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, The
kingdom of God is come nigh to you.
10:10 But into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you not,
go out into the streets of the same, and say,
10:11 Even the very dust of your city which cleaveth on us, we
do wipe off against you: notwithstanding, be ye sure of this,
that the kingdom of God is come nigh to you.
10:12 But I say to you, that it shall be more tolerable in that
day for Sodom than for that city.
10:13 Woe to thee, Chorazin! woe to 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 sitting in
sackcloth and ashes.
10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the
judgment, than for you.
10:15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shall be
thrust down to hell.
10:16 He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth
you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that
10:17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the
demons are subject to us through thy name.
10:18 And he said to them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from
10:19 Behold, I give to you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
shall by any means hurt you.
10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are
subject to you; but rather rejoice, because your names are
written in heaven.
10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced 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
to babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
10:22 All things are delivered to me by 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].
10:23 And he turned himself to [his] disciples, and said
privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things that ye
10:24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired
to see the things which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and
to hear the things which ye hear, and have not heard [them].
10:25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him,
saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
10:26 He said to him, What is written in the law? how readest
10:27 And he answering said, Thou 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 thy neighbor as thyself.
10:28 And he said to him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and
thou shalt live.
10:29 But he, willing to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who
is my neighbor?
10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain [man] went down from
Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who stripped him
of his raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him]
10:31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way;
and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and
looked [on him], and passed by on the other side.
10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came were he
was: and when he saw him, he had compassion [on him],
10:34 And went to [him], and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil
and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an
inn, and took care of him.
10:35 And on the morrow, when he departed, he took out two
pence, and gave [them] to the host, and said to him, Take care
of him: and whatever thou spendest more, when I come again, I
will repay thee.
10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor to
him that fell among the robbers?
10:37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus
to him, Go, and do thou likewise.
10:38 Now it came to pass, as they were going, he entered into a
certain village: and a certain woman, named Martha, received
him into her house.
10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus'
feet, and heard his word.
10:40 But Martha 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.
10:41 And Jesus answered, and said to her, Martha, Martha, thou
art anxious, and troubled about many things:
10:42 But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good
part, which shall not be taken away from her.
