Sending Out the Twelve(A)

(B)And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out (C)two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts— but (D)to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 (E)Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 (F)And [a]whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, (G)shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. [b]Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, (H)and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
