Luke 10

1 Now after these things, the Lord also delegated seventy others, and sent them two apiece {i.e. two by two} into every city and place before his face, where he himself was about to go. 2 Therefore he said to them, The harvest is indeed large, but the workers are few, therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest, *that he should put out workers into his harvest. 3 Go, behold, I am sending you* forth like lambs in the midst of wolves. 4 Bear no money, bag, no knapsack, no shoes, and greet no one on the road. 5 Now into whatever house you* enter, say first, Peace is to this house. 6 And if a son of peace is there, your, your* peace will rest upon it, otherwise it will revisit you*. 7 Now abide in that same house, eating and drinking from their things; for* the worker is worthy of his wages. Do not proceed from house to house.

8 And into whatever city you* enter, and if they accept you*, eat such things as are placed beside you*; 9 and heal the sick who are in it and say to them, The kingdom of God has drawn near to you*. 10 But into whatever city you* enter, and if they do not accept you*, go out into its streets and say, 11 Even the dust from your, your* city, that was stuck to us, we wipe off at you*. However, know this, that the kingdom of God has drawn near to you*. 12 I say to you*, It will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! Because if the miracles had happened in Tyre and Sidon, which have happened in you*, they would have repented long, ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 However it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you*. 15 And you, Capernaum, who has been exalted to heaven. You will be stepping down to Hades. 16 He who hears you*, hears me; and he who is rejecting you*, rejects me; and he who rejects me, rejects the one who sent me .

17 Now the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your, your* name.

18 But he said to them, I was viewing the Adversary falling like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I am giving you* authority to trample down serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and you* may never* be hurt by anything. 20 However, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you*, but rejoice that your, your* names are written in the heavens.

21 Jesus was glad in the spirit in that same hour, and said, I profess you, O Father, Lord of the heaven and the earth, because you hid these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to infants. Yes Father, because thus it became a delight before you. 22 And having turned to the disciples, he said, All things have been given to me by my Father, and no one knows who the Son is, except the Father, and who the Father is, except the Son and he to whomever the Son wills to reveal him.

23 And having turned to the disciples, he said privately, The eyes which see what you* see are fortunate. 24 For* I say to you*, that many prophets and kings wished to see the things which you* are seeing and did not see them, and to hear the things which you* are hearing and did not hear them.

{Lk 10: 25-37; Probably Judea; no parallel. }

25 And behold, a certain professor of the law stood up, testing him and saying, Teacher, by having done what, will I be inheriting everlasting life?

26 But he said to him, What has been written in the law? How do you read it?

27 But he answered and said, ' You will love* the Lord your, your* God from your, your* whole heart and from your, your* whole soul and from your, your* whole strength and from your, your* whole mind, and your, your* neighbor like yourself.' {Deu. 6: 5 & Lev. 19: 18}

28 But he said to him, You have answered correctly. Do this and you will live.

29 But he, wishing to make himself righteous, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?

30 But Jesus, having taken it in, said, A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and laid wounds on him. They went away, leaving him, being half dead. 31 But by coincidence, a certain priest was going down on that road, and when* he saw him, he evaded him. 32 Now likewise, a Levite also happened to be in the place, when* he came and saw him, he evaded him too. 33 But a certain traveling Samaritan came to him, and having seen him, had compassion. 34 And having come near to him, he bound up his trauma, pouring on them oil and wine, and having mounted him upon his own animal, led him to an inn and cared for him. 35 And upon the next, day, going out, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, Care for him, and if you spend anything over that, I will be repaying you when* I come back again. 36 Therefore, which one of these three seems to have become a neighbor to the one who fell among the robbers?

37 Now he said, He who did an act of mercy with him. Therefore, Jesus said to him, Travel, and you, do likewise!

{Lk 10: 38-42; Bethany, near Jerusalem; no parallel. }

38 But it happened while* they were also traveling, he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman, Martha by name, accepted him into her house. 39 And she was a sister to one called Mary, who also sat beside the feet of Jesus and was hearing his word. 40 But Martha was being distracted concerning much service to them, and having stood by him, she said, Lord, do you not care that my sister left me to serve alone? Therefore speak to her in order that she may jointly help me.

41 But Jesus answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and disturbed concerning many things, 42 but there is need of one thing, and Mary has chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her.

{Lk 11: 1-13: 9; Probably Judea; no parallel. This is similar teaching to different crowd. }
