Luke 10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

10 And after these things the Lord Jesus ordained also other seventy and twain, and sent them by twain and twain before his face into every city and place[a], whither he was to come.

And he said to them, There is much ripe corn, and few workmen [Soothly much ripe corn is, but few workmen be]; therefore pray ye the Lord of the ripe corn, that he send workmen into his ripe corn.

Go ye, lo! I send you as lambs among wolves.

Therefore do not ye bear a satchel, neither scrip [Do not ye bear a satchel, nor scrip], neither shoes, and greet ye no man by the way.

Into what house that ye enter [And into whatever house ye shall enter], first say ye, Peace to this house.

And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest on him; but if none [if none], it shall turn again to you.

And dwell ye in the same house [Forsooth in the same house dwell ye], eating and drinking those things that be at them; for a workman is worthy his hire. Do not ye pass from house into house.

And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat ye those things that be set to you;

and heal ye the sick men that be in that city. And say ye to them, The kingdom of God shall approach into you.[b]

10 And into what city ye enter [Into whatever city ye shall enter], and they receive you not, go ye out into the streets of it, and say ye,

11 We wipe off against you the powder that cleaved to us of your city; nevertheless know ye this thing, that the realm of God shall come nigh.

12 [Forsooth] I say to you, that to Sodom it shall be easier [for to Sodom, it shall be easier, or less pain,] than to that city in that day.

13 Woe to thee, Chorazin; woe to thee, Bethsaida; for if in Tyre and Sidon the works of power [the virtues] had been done, which have been done in you, sometime they would have sat in haircloth and ashes, and have done penance [sometime they sitting in haircloth and ashes, should have done penance].

14 Nevertheless to Tyre and Sidon it shall be easier in the doom than to you.

15 And thou, Capernaum, art enhanced till to heaven; thou shalt be drowned till into hell [thou shalt be drowned down into hell].

16 He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.

17 And the two and seventy disciples turned again with joy, and said [saying], Lord, also devils be subject to us in thy name.

18 And he said to them, I saw Satan falling down from heaven, as lightning.

19 And lo! I have given to you power to tread on serpents, and scorpions, and on [upon] all the virtue of the enemy, and nothing shall harm you.

20 Nevertheless do not ye [have] joy in this thing, that spirits be subject to you; but joy ye, that your names be written in heavens.

21 In that hour he gladded in the Holy Ghost, and said, I acknowledge to thee, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for thou hast hid these things from wise men and prudent, and hast showed them to small children. Yea, Father, for so it pleased before thee.[c]

22 All things be given to me of my Father, and no man knoweth, who is the Son, but the Father; and who is the Father, but the Son, and to whom the Son will show.

23 And he turned to his disciples, and said, Blessed be the eyes, that see those things that ye see [Blessed be the eyes, which see those things that ye see].

24 For I say to you, that many prophets and kings would have seen those things, that ye see [which ye see], and they saw not; and hear those things, that ye hear, and they heard not.

25 And lo! a wise man of the law rose up, tempting him, and saying, Master, what thing shall I do to have everlasting life? [And lo! a wise man of law rose, tempting him, and saying, Master, what thing doing shall I wield everlasting life?]

26 And he said to him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27 He answered, and said, Thou shalt love thy Lord God [He answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God] of all thine heart, and of all thy soul, and of all thy strengths, and of all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28 And Jesus said to him, Thou hast answered rightly; do this thing, and thou shalt live.

29 But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

30 And Jesus beheld, and said, A man came down from Jerusalem into Jericho, and fell among thieves, and they robbed him[d], and wounded him, and went away, and left the man half alive.

31 And it befell, that a priest came down the same way, and passed forth, when he had seen him. [Forsooth it befell, that some priest came down in the same way, and, him seen, he passed forth.]

32 Also [and] a deacon, when he was beside the place, and saw him, passed forth.

33 But a Samaritan, going the way [Forsooth some Samaritan, making journey], came beside him; and he saw him, and had ruth on him;

34 and came to him, and bound together his wounds, and poured in oil and wine [pouring in oil and wine]; and laid him on his beast, and led him into an hostelry, and did the care of him.

35 And another day he brought forth two pence, and gave to the hosteler, and said, Have the care of him; and whatever thou shalt give over, I shall yield to thee, when I come again.

36 Who of these three, seemeth to thee, was neighbour to him, that fell among [the] thieves?

37 And he said, He that did mercy into him. And Jesus said to him, Go thou, and do thou in like manner.[e]

38 And it was done, while they went, he entered into a castle; and a woman, Martha by name, received him into her house. [Forsooth it was done, while they went, and he entered into some castle; and some woman, Martha by name, received him into her house.]

39 And to this was a sister, Mary by name, which also sat beside the feet of the Lord, and heard his word.

40 But Martha busied about the oft service. And she stood, and said, Lord, takest thou no keep, that my sister hath left me alone to serve? therefore say thou to her, that she help me.[f]

41 And the Lord answered, and said to her, Martha, Martha, thou art busy, and art troubled about full many things;

42 but one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part [Mary hath chosen the better part], which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He sends the seventy on before him to preach, and instructs them how to conduct themselves. He prays to his heavenly Father, answers the scribe that tested him, and by the example of the Samaritan, shows who is our neighbour. Martha receives the Lord into her house. Mary Magdalene is fervent in hearing his word.

10 After these things, the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before him into every city and place where he himself would come. And he said to them, The harvest is great, but the labourers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways. Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Carry no wallet, nor bag, nor shoes, and address no man by the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if a child of peace be there, your peace will rest upon him; if not, it will return to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they have. For the labourer is worthy of his reward. Go not from house to house.

And into whatever town you enter, if they receive you, eat such things as are set before you, and heal the sick that are there, and say to them, The kingdom of God is come nigh upon you! 10 But into whatever town you enter, if they do not receive you, go your ways out into the streets of the same and say, 11 Even the very dust that cleaves on us from your city, we wipe off against you. But yet mark this, that the kingdom of God came nigh upon you.

12 Yea and I say to you that it shall be easier in that day for Sodom than for that town. 13 Woe is to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had been done in Tyre and Sidon that have been done in you, they would have repented a great while ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it will be easier for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be thrust down to hell.

16 He who hears you, hears me; and he who rejects you, rejects me; and he who rejects me, rejects him who sent me.

17 And the seventy returned back again with joy, saying, Lord, even the very devils are subject to us through your name! 18 And he said to them, I saw Satan, like lightning as it were, fall down from heaven. 19 Behold, I give to you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all manner of power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are under your power, but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.

21 At the same time, Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, I confess unto you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to the babes. Even so, Father, for so pleased it you. 22 All things are given me by my Father. And no man knows who the Son is except the Father, nor who the Father is except the Son, and the person to whom the Son will show him.

23 And he turned to his disciples and said privately, Happy are the eyes that see what you see. 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things that you see, and have not seen them, and to hear those things that you hear, and have not heard them.

25 And a certain doctor of the law stood up and tested him, saying, Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? 26 Jesus said to him, What is written in the law? How do you read it? 27 And he answered and said, Love your Lord God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.

28 And Jesus said to him, You have answered right. This do, and you shall live. 29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, Who then is my neighbour?

30 Jesus answered and said, A certain man descended from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of thieves who robbed him of his clothing and wounded him, and departed leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came a certain priest that same way. And when he saw him, he passed by. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he came near to the place, went and looked on him, and passed by. 33 Then a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came near to him, and when he saw him had compassion on him, 34 and went and bound up his wounds, and poured in oil and wine. And he put him on his own animal and brought him to a common inn, and made provision for him. 35 And when he departed the next day, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come back, I will recompense you. 36 Which now of these three do you think was neighbour to the man that fell into the thieves’ hands?

37 And the doctor of law said, He that showed mercy on him.

Then Jesus said to him, Go then and do likewise.

38 It happened as they journeyed that he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And this woman had a sister called Mary, who sat at Jesus’ feet and heard his preaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much work of serving, and stood and said, Master, do you not care that my sister has left me to minister alone? Tell her therefore that she should help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you care and are troubled about many things. 42 Truly one is needful, and Mary has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

10 1 The seventy disciples. 10 The unthankful cities charged with impiety. 17 The disciples returning home, are warned to be humble. 29, 30 Who is our neighbor. 38 Of Martha and her sister Mary.

After [a]these things, the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them, two and two before him into every city and place, whither he himself should come.

And he said unto them, The harvest is great, but the laborers are few: pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into his harvest.

[b]Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Bear no bag, neither scrip, nor shoes, and salute [c]no man by the way.

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

And if [d]the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him, if not, it shall turn to you again.

And in that house [e]tarry still, eating and drinking such things as by them shall be set before you: for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Go not from house to house.

But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, if they receive you, [f]eat such things as are set before you,

And heal the sick that are there, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come near unto you.

10 [g]But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, if they will not receive you, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

11 Even the very dust, which cleaveth on us of your city, we wipe off against you: notwithstanding know this, that the kingdom of God was come near unto you.

12 For I say to you, that it shall be easier in that day for them of Sodom, than for that city.

13 Woe be to thee, Chorazin: woe be to thee, Bethsaida: for if the miracles had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while agone repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

14 Therefore it shall be easier for Tyre, and Sidon, at the judgment, than for you.

15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

16 He that heareth you, heareth me: and he that despiseth you, despiseth me: and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.

17 [h]And the seventy turned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subdued to us [i]through thy Name.

18 And he said unto them, I saw Satan, like lightning, [j]fall down from heaven.

19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on Serpents, and Scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall [k]hurt you.

20 Nevertheless, in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subdued unto you: but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

21 [l]That same hour rejoiced Jesus in the spirit, and said, I confess unto thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the [m]wise and understanding, and hast revealed them to babes: even so, Father, because it so pleased thee. [n]

22 [o]All things are given me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the son is, but the Father: neither who the Father is, save the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

23 [p]And he turned to his disciples, and said secretly, Blessed are the eyes, which see that ye see.

24 For I tell you that many Prophets and Kings have desired to see those things, which ye see, and have not seen them: and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

25 [q]Then behold, [r]a certain Lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 And he said unto him, What is written in the Law? how readest thou?

27 And he answered and said, Thou shalt love thy Lord God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy thought, and thy neighbor as thyself.

28 Then he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29 [s]But he willing to [t]justify himself, said unto Jesus, Who is then my neighbor?

30 And Jesus answered, and said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, and they robbed him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 Now so it fell out, that there came down a certain Priest that same way, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise also a Levite, when he was come near to the place, went and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 Then a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came near unto him, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds and poured in oil and wine, and put him on his own beast, and brought him to an Inn, and made provision for him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him, and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will recompense thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves?

37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

38 [u]Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain town, and a certain woman named Martha, received him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his preaching.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Master, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore, that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered, and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou carest, and art troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful, Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

10 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. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: and heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 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 unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto 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. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

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 unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. 22 All things are delivered to me of 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.

23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 24 for I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 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 neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 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. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 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. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
