Luke 10

And after these things, Jesus separated from among his disciples seventy other persons, and sent them, two and two, before his face, to every place and city whither he was to go. And he said to them: The harvest is great, and the laborers few: pray ye, therefore, the lord of the harvest that he would send laborers into his harvest. Go ye: lo, I send you forth, as sheep among wolves. Take to you no purses, nor wallets, nor shoes; and salute no man by the way. And into whatever house ye enter, first say: Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace is there, your salutation will rest upon it; but if not, your salutation will return to you. And remain in that house, eating and drinking of what it affords; for the laborer is worthy of his hire. And pass not from house to house. And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you; eat that which set before you. And heal them that are sick in it; and say to them: The kingdom of God hath come near you. 10 And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you not; go out into the street, and say: 11 Even the dust of your city which adhereth to our feet, we shake off against you: but this know ye, that the kingdom of God hath come near to you. 12 I say to you, that for Sodom there will be comfort in that day, rather than for that city. 13 Woe to thee, Chorazin; woe to thee, Bethsaida; for if in Tyre and Sidon there had been the mighty deeds, that were in you, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But for Tyre and Sidon there will be comfort in the day of judgment, rather than for you. 15 And thou Capernaum, that art lifted up to heaven, shalt be brought down to hell. 16 He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me. 17 And the seventy whom he sent forth, returned with great joy, and say to him: Our Lord, even the demons were subject to us, in thy name. 18 And he said to them: I saw Satan fall, like the lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you authority to tread on serpents, and scorpions, and on all the power of the adversary: and nothing shall harm you. 20 Yet rejoice not in this, that the demons are subject to you; but rejoice, that your names are written in heaven. 21 In that hour Jesus exulted in the Holy Spirit, and said: I thank thee, my Father, thou Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and intelligent, and hast revealed them to babes: yes, my Father, for such was thy good pleasure. 22 And he turned himself to his disciples, and said to them: Every thing is committed to me by my Father: and no one knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; or who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son is pleased to reveal him. 23 And he turned to his disciples, privately, and said: Blessed are the eyes that see, what ye see. 24 For I say to you, that many prophets and kings desired to see what ye see, and did not see it; and to hear what ye hear, and did not hear it. 25 And behold, a Scribe stood up to try him, and said: Teacher, what must I do, to inherit eternal life? 26 And Jesus said to him: How is it written in the law? How readest thou? 27 He answered and said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor, as thyself 28 Jesus said to him: Thou hast said correctly; do thus, and thou wilt live. 29 And he, being disposed to justify himself, said: And who is my neighbor? 30 Jesus said to him: A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and robbers fell upon him, and plundered him, and smote him, and left him with little life in him, and went their way. 31 And a certain priest went down by that way; and he saw him, and passed on. 32 So also a Levite came, approached the spot, and saw him, and passed on. 33 But a Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was, and saw him, and took pity on him, 34 and went to him, and bound up his wounds, and poured wine and oil on them, and placed him upon his ass, and brought him to the inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morning of the next day, he took out two denarii and gave to the host, and said: Take good care of him; and if thou expendest any more, when I return, I will repay thee. 36 Which therefore of these three, appears to thee, to have been neighbor to him that fell into the hands of marauders? 37 And he said: He that had pity on him. Jesus said to him: Go, and do thou also the like. 38 And it occurred, as they travelled by the way, that he entered a certain village, and a woman whose name was Martha, received him at her house. 39 And she had a sister whose name, was Mary : and she came and seated herself at the feet of our Lord, and listened to his discourses. 40 But Martha was occupied with much service; and she came, and said to him: My Lord, hast thou no concern, that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her assist me. 41 Jesus answered, and said to her: Martha, Martha, thou art anxious and troubled about many things: 42 yet but one thing is necessary; and Mary hath chosen for herself the good part, which shall not be taken from her.
