Luke 10

Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two

1After this the Lord appointed a  seventy-two
Some manuscripts seventy; also verse 17
others and c  sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go.
2 d  And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. e  Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; f  behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4 g  Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and h  greet no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say i  Peace be to this house!’ 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not j  it will return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for k  the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. 9Heal the sick in it and say to them l  ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 11 m  Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that n  the kingdom of God has come near.’ 12I tell you, o  it will be more bearable on p  that day for Sodom than for that town.

Woe to Unrepentant Cities

13 q  Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in r  Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 s  But it will be more bearable in the judgment for t  Tyre and Sidon than for you. 15And you, Capernaum u  will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to v  Hades.

16 w  “The one who hears you hears me, and x  the one who rejects you rejects me, and y  the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

The Return of the Seventy-Two

17 z  The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord aa  even the demons are subject to us in your name!” 18And he said to them, ab  “I saw Satan ac  fall like lightning from heaven. 19Behold, I have given you authority ad  to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of ae  the enemy, and af  nothing shall hurt you. 20 ag  Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that ah  your names are written in heaven.”

Jesus Rejoices in the Father’s Will

21 ai  In that same hour aj  he rejoiced ak  in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father al  Lord of heaven and earth, that am  you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and an  revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for ao  such was your gracious will.
Or  for so it pleased you well
22 aq  All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows who the Son is ar  except the Father, or who the Father is as  except the Son and anyone at  to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

23Then turning to the disciples he said privately, au  Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! 24For I tell you av  that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 aw  And behold, a ax  lawyer stood up to ay  put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to az  inherit eternal life?” 26He said to him, What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27And he answered ba  “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 mind, and bb  your neighbor as yourself.” 28And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; bc  do this, and you will live.”

29But he, bd  desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30Jesus replied, A man be  was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31Now by chance a bf  priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32So likewise bg  a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33But a bh  Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34He went to him and bi  bound up his wounds, pouring on bj  oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35And the next day he took out two bk  denarii
A  denarius was a day’s wage for a laborer
and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’
36Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, You go, and do likewise.”

Martha and Mary

38Now as they went on their way, Jesus
Greek he
entered a village. And a woman named bn  Martha bo  welcomed him into her house.
39And she had a sister called bp  Mary, who bq  sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41But the Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are br  anxious and troubled about many things, 42but one thing is necessary.
Some manuscripts few things are necessary, or only one
Mary has chosen bt  the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
