Luke 10

CHAPTER 10

The Mission of the Seventy

And after these things, [3made manifest 1the 2Lord] even another seventy, and sent them by two before his face into every city and place where he was about to come. Then he said to them, Indeed the harvest is great, but the workers few; beseech then the Lord of the harvest! that he should put workers into his harvest. Go! behold, I send you as lambs in the midst of wolves. Do not bear a bag, nor provision, nor sandals! and no one in the way should you greet. [2into 3which 1And] ever house you should enter, first say! Peace to this house. And if there might be there a son of peace, [2shall rest 3upon 4him 1your peace]; but if not, unto you it shall return. [2in 3the same 1And] house abide! eating and drinking the things of theirs; [5worthy 1for 2the 3worker 6of his wage 4is]! Do not cross over from house to house! And into what ever city you should enter, and they should receive you, eat the things being placed near to you! And attend to the [2in it 1weak]! and say to them! [4approaches 5unto 6you 1The 2kingdom 3of God]. 10 [2into 3which 1And] ever city you should enter, and they should not receive you, having gone forth into its square, you say! 11 Even the dust cleaving to us from your city we wipe off against you. Except know this! that [4has approached 5unto 6you 1the 2kingdom 3of God]. 12 But I say to you that, [5to Sodom 1in 3day 2that 4it will be more endurable] than to that city.

Woe to the Cities

13 Woe to you Chorazin. Woe to you Bethsaida. for if in Tyre and Sidon took place the works of power which took place in you, even earlier [3in 4sackcloth 5and 6ashes 2sitting 1they would have repented]. 14 Furthermore to Tyre and Sidon it will be more endurable in the judgment, than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, the one [2unto 3the 4heaven 1having been raised up high]; unto Hades you shall be brought down. 16 The one hearing you, hears me; and the one disregarding you, disregards me; and the one disregarding me, disregards the one having sent me. 17 [4returned 1And 2the 3seventy] with joy, saying, O Lord, even the demons are submitted to us in your name. 18 And he said to them, I viewed Satan as lightning [2from out of 3the 4heaven 1falling]. 19 Behold, I give to you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy; and nothing [3you 1in any way 2shall injure]. 20 Furthermore in this rejoice not! that the spirits submit to you. But you rejoice! that your names are written in the heavens. 21 In the same hour [2exulted 3in the 4spirit 1Jesus], and said, I make acknowledgment to you, O father, O Lord of the heaven and of the earth, that you concealed these things from the wise and experts, and uncovered them to simple ones; Yes, O father, for thus it was benevolent before you. 22 And turning to the disciples he said, All things were delivered up to me by my father; and no one knows who is the son, except the father, and who is the father, except the son, and to whom ever [3wants 1the 2son] to reveal. 23 And having turned to the disciples in private he said, Blessed are the eyes, the ones seeing what you see. 24 For I say to you, that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and saw not; and to hear what you hear, and heard not.

The Good Samaritan

25 And behold, a certain legal expert rose up putting him to test, and saying, Teacher, what having done, [3life 2eternal 1shall I inherit]? 26  And he said to him, In the law, what has been written? How do you read? 27  And answering he said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your thought, and your neighbor as yourself. 28 And he said to him, Rightly you answered; do this and you shall live! 29 But he wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor? 30 And undertaking, Jesus said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem unto Jericho, and [2robbers 1fell among], the ones who both having stripped him, and [2wounds upon him 1having placed], went forth leaving him half-dead happening by chance. 31 [2by 3chance 1And] a certain priest went down by that way; and beholding him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And in like manner also a Levite, being at the place, having come and beholding, passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, traveling, came by him; and beholding him, he was moved with compassion. 34 And having come forward, he bound his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and having set him upon his own beast, he led him unto an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the next morning, having come forth, casting down two denarii, he gave them to the inn-keeper, and said to him, Take care of him! and whatsoever you should spend besides, I in my returning back will repay to you. 36 Which then of these three seems to you [2the neighbor 1to have been] of the one having fallen among the robbers? 37 And he said, The one having mercy with him. [2said 3then 4to him 1Jesus], Go, and you do in like manner! 38 And it came to pass in their going, that he entered into a certain town. [3woman 1And 2a certain], by name Martha, welcomed him into her house. 39 And thus there was a sister being called Mary, who also having sat by the feet of Jesus, heard his word. 40  But Martha was distracted about much service, and having stood by, she said, O Lord, is it no care to you that my sister [2alone 1left me] to serve? Speak then to her that she should aid me! 41 And answering [2said 3to her 1Jesus], Martha, Martha, you are anxious and turbulent concerning many things. 42 [3one 1But 2there is] need, and Mary [2the 3good 4portion 1chose], which shall not be removed from her.
