Don’t take along gold, silver, or copper for your money-belts.(A) 10 Don’t take a traveling bag for the road, or an extra shirt, sandals, or a walking stick, for the worker(B) is worthy of his food.

11 “When you enter any town or village, find out who is worthy, and stay there until you leave. 12 Greet a household when you enter it,(C) 13 and if the household is worthy, let your peace be on it. But if it is unworthy, let your peace return to you.(D) 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet(E) when you leave that house or town. 15 I assure you: It will be more tolerable on the day of judgment(F) for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.(G)

He instructed them to take nothing for the road except a walking stick: no bread, no traveling bag,(A) no money in their belts. They were to wear sandals, but not put on an extra shirt.(B) 10 Then He said to them, “Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place. 11 If any place does not welcome(C) you and people refuse to listen to you, when you leave there, shake the dust off your feet(D) as a testimony(E) against them.”[a]

  1. Mark 6:11 Other mss add I assure you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah on judgment day than for that town.

Don’t carry a money-bag,(A) traveling bag,(B) or sandals;(C) don’t greet anyone along the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace(D) to this household.’ If a son of peace[a] is there, your peace(E) will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they offer, for the worker is worthy of his wages.(F) Don’t be moving from house to house. When you enter any town, and they welcome you, eat the things set before you.(G) Heal the sick(H) who are there, and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God(I) has come near(J) you.’ 10 When you enter any town, and they don’t welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘We are wiping off as a witness against you(K) even the dust of your town that clings to our feet. Know this for certain: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, on that day(L) it will be more tolerable for Sodom(M) than for that town.(N)
