Matthew 10:5-8 The Message (MSG)

5-8 Jesus sent his twelve harvest hands out with this charge:

“Don’t begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers. And don’t try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.

Matthew 10:5-8 New International Version (NIV)

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.


  1. Matthew 10:8 The Greek word traditionally translated leprosy was used for various diseases affecting the skin.

Mateo 10:5-8 Nueva Versión Internacional (NVI)

Jesús envió a estos doce con las siguientes instrucciones: «No vayan entre los gentiles ni entren en ningún pueblo de los samaritanos. Vayan más bien a las ovejas descarriadas del pueblo de Israel. Dondequiera que vayan, prediquen este mensaje: “El reino de los cielos está cerca”. Sanen a los enfermos, resuciten a los muertos, limpien de su enfermedad a los que tienen lepra, expulsen a los demonios. Lo que ustedes recibieron gratis, denlo gratuitamente.
