The Twelve Sent Out

(A)And (B)He *summoned the twelve and began to send them out (C)in pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits; (D)and He instructed them that they were to take nothing for their journey, except a mere staff—no bread, no [a]bag, no money in their belt— but [b]to wear sandals; and He added, “Do not wear two [c]tunics.” 10 And He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you [d]leave town. 11 Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you go out from there, (E)shake the dust [e]off the soles of your feet as a testimony against them.” 12 (F)And they went out and [f]preached that people are to repent. 13 And they were casting out many demons and (G)were anointing with oil many sick people and healing them.
