Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two
Luk 10:1  After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go.
Luk 10:2  And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
Luk 10:3  Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
Luk 10:4  Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road.
Luk 10:5  Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’
Luk 10:6  And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you.
Luk 10:7  And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house.
Luk 10:8  Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you.
Luk 10:9  Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’
Luk 10:10  But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say,
Luk 10:11  ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’
Luk 10:12  I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
Woe to Unrepentant Cities
Luk 10:13  “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
Luk 10:14  But it will be more bearable in the judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you.
Luk 10:15  And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades.
Luk 10:16  “The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
