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.

Supplies for the Road

35 (A)And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?”

So they said, “Nothing.”

36 Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. 37 For I say to you that this which is written must still be [a]accomplished in Me: (B)‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.”

38 So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”

And He said to them, “It is enough.”

17 (A)“Son of man, I have made you (B)a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them (C)warning from Me: 18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man (D)shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; (E)but you have delivered your soul.

12 For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law 13 (for (A)not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; 14 for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, 15 who show the (B)work of the law written in their hearts, their (C)conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) 16 (D)in the day when God will judge the secrets of men (E)by Jesus Christ, (F)according to my gospel.
