Christ sendeth out at once seventy disciples to work miracles, and to preach:
Luke 10:1 And, after these things, the Lord appointed seventy two others, and sent them forth, two and two before his face, into every city and place whither, he himself, was about to come. Luke 10:2 And he was saying unto themThe harvest, indeed, is, great, but, the labourers, few; beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, that he would thrust forth, labourers, into his harvest. Luke 10:3 Withdraw! Lo! I send you forth as lambs amid wolves. Luke 10:4 Be not carrying purse, or satchel, or sandals, and, no one along the road, salute ye; Luke 10:5 And, into whatsoever house ye enter, First, say, Peace to this house! Luke 10:6 And, if the son of peace be, there, your peace, shall rest upon it; but, otherwise, at least, unto you, shall it return. Luke 10:7 And, in the self-same house, abide ye, eating and drinking such things as they have; for, worthy, is the labourer, of his hire: be not removing from house to house. Luke 10:8 And, into whatsoever city ye shall enter, and they bid you welcome, be eating such things as are set before you; Luke 10:9 And be curing the sick that are, therein, and be saying unto themThe kingdom of God hath drawn nigh upon you. Luke 10:10 But, into whatsoever city ye shall enter, and they do not welcome you, going forth into the broadways thereof, say ye: Luke 10:11 Even the dust that cleaveth unto us, out of your city, unto our feet, do we wipe off against you; nevertheless, of this, be taking noticeThe kingdom of God hath drawn near. Luke 10:12 I tell you, for them of Sodom, in that day, more tolerable, will it be, than for that city. Luke 10:13 Alas for thee, Chorazin! Alas for thee, Bethsaida! Because, if, in Tyre and Zidon, had been done the works of power which have been down in you, of old, in sackcloth and ashes sitting, they would have repented. Luke 10:14 Moreover, for Tyre and Zidon, more tolerable, will it be, in the judgment, than, for you. Luke 10:15 And, thou, Capernaum,Unto heaven, shalt thou be uplifted? . . . Unto hades, thou shalt be brought down! Luke 10:16 He that hearkeneth unto you, unto me, doth hearken, and, he that setteth you aside, doth set, me, aside; and, he that setteth, me, aside, doth set aside, him that sent me.
admonisheth them to be humble, and wherein to rejoice:
Luke 10:17 And the seventy[-two] returned, with joy, sayingLord! even the demons, submit themselves unto us, in thy name! Luke 10:18 And he said unto themI was beholding Satan, when, like lightning, out of heaven, he fell! Luke 10:19 Lo! I have given you the authorityto be treading upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and, nothing, unto you, shall in anywise do harm; Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding, in this, be not rejoicingthat, the spirits, unto you submit themselves; but be rejoicingthat, your names, are inscribed in the heavens!
thanketh his Father for his grace:
Luke 10:21 In the self-same hour, exulted he in the Holy Spirit, and saidI openly give praise unto thee, Father! Lord of heaven and earth! in that thou hast hid these things from the wise and discerning, and hast revealed them unto babes,Yea, O Father! that, so, hath it become, a delight, before thee. Luke 10:22 All things, unto me, have been delivered up by my Father; and, no one, knoweth, who the Son is, save the Father,and who the Father is, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son may be minded to reveal him.
magnifieth the happy estate of his Church:
Luke 10:23 And, turning unto his disciples, privately, he saidHappy, the eyes, that see what ye see! Luke 10:24 For I tell you, Many prophets and kings, have desired to see what, ye, see, and they saw not, and to hear what ye hear, and they heard not.
teacheth the lawyer how to attain eternal life, and to take every one for his neighbour that needeth his mercy:
Luke 10:25 And lo! a certain lawyer, arose, putting him to the test, sayingTeacher! by doing what, shall I inherit, life age-abiding? Luke 10:26 And, he, said unto himIn the law, what is written? how dost thou read? Luke 10:27 And, he, answering, saidThou shalt love the Lord thy God, out of all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might, and with all thine intention; and thy neighbour, as thyself? Luke 10:28 And he said unto himRightly, hast thou answered: This, do, and thou shalt live. Luke 10:29 But, he, wishing to justify himself, said unto JesusAnd, who is, my, neighbour? Luke 10:30 And taking up [the question], Jesus saidA certain man, was going down from Jerusalem unto Jericho, and, with robbers, fell in,who, stripping him, and inflicting, wounds, upon him, departed, leaving him, half dead. Luke 10:31 And, by chance, a certain priest, was coming down by that road, and, seeing him, passed by, on the opposite side. Luke 10:32 And, in like manner, a Levite also, coming down to the place, and seeing him, passed by, on the opposite side. Luke 10:33 But, a certain Samaritan, going on his journey, came down to him, and, seeing him, was moved with compassion; Luke 10:34 and, coming near, bound up his bruises, pouring thereon oil and wine,and, setting him on his own beast, brought him into an inn, and took care of him. Luke 10:35 And, on the morrow, throwing out two denaries, he gave them to the inn-keeper, and saidTake care of him, and, whatsoever thou shall further spend, I, when on my way back, will duly pay thee. Luke 10:36 Which of these three, seemeth unto thee to have become, neighbour, unto him who fell among the robbers? Luke 10:37 And, he, saidHe who dealt mercifully with him. And Jesus said unto himBe taking thy journey, and, thou, be doing, in like manner.
Luke 10:38 And, as they were journeying, he, entered into a certain village; and, a certain woman, named Martha, welcomed him into her house. Luke 10:39 And, she, had a sister, called Mary, who also, seating herself at the feet of the Lord, was hearing his word. Luke 10:40 But, Martha, was distracted about much ministering, and, coming near, saidLord! carest thou not that, my sister, hath left me to be ministering, alone? Speak to her, then, that she help me.
reprehendeth Martha, and commendeth Mary her sister.
Luke 10:41 But the Lord, answering, said to herMartha! Martha! thou art anxious and troubled about many things: Luke 10:42 Of few things, is there need, or, of one; Mary, in fact, hath chosen, the good part,one which shall not be taken away from her.
