9 Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,10 or a [a]bag for your journey, or even two [b]coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his [c]support.11 And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay [d]at his house until you leave that city.12 As you enter the [e]house, give it your [f]greeting.13 If the house is worthy, [g]give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, [h]take back your blessing of peace.14 Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.
3 And He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a [a]bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have [b]two tunics apiece.4 Whatever house you enter, stay there [c]until you leave that city.5 And as for those who do not receive you, as you go out from that city, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”
4 Carry no money belt, no [a]bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way.5 Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’6 If a [b]man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.7 Stay in [c]that house, eating and drinking [d]what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house.8 Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you;9 and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’10 But whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,11 ‘Even the dust of your city which clings to our feet we wipe off in protest against you; yet [e]be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’
