But Jesus said to them, (A)“A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” (B)Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And (C)He marveled because of their unbelief. (D)Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.

Sending Out the Twelve(E)

(F)And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out (G)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 (H)to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 (I)Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 (J)And [a]whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, (K)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, (L)and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
