040:010:001
And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples,
he gave them power against unclean spirits,
to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.


040:010:002
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these;
The first,
Simon,
who is called Peter,
and Andrew his brother;
James the son of Zebedee,
and John his brother;


040:010:003
Philip,
and Bartholomew;
Thomas,
and Matthew the publican;
James the son of Alphaeus,
and Lebbaeus,
whose surname was Thaddaeus;


040:010:004
Simon the Canaanite,
and Judas Iscariot,
who also betrayed him.


040:010:005
These twelve Jesus sent forth,
and commanded them,
saying,
Go not into the way of the Gentiles,
and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:


040:010:006
But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.


040:010:007
And as ye go,
preach,
saying,
The kingdom of heaven is at hand.


040:010:008
Heal the sick,
cleanse the lepers,
raise the dead,
cast out devils:
freely ye have received,
freely give.


040:010:009
Provide neither gold,
nor silver,
nor brass in your purses,


040:010:010
Nor scrip for your journey,
neither two coats,
neither shoes,
nor yet staves:
for the workman is worthy of his meat.


040:010:011
And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter,
enquire who in it is worthy;
and there abide till ye go thence.


040:010:012
And when ye come into an house,
salute it.


040:010:013
And if the house be worthy,
let your peace come upon it:
but if it be not worthy,
let your peace return to you.


040:010:014
And whosoever shall not receive you,
nor hear your words,
when ye depart out of that house or city,
shake off the dust of your feet.


040:010:015
Verily I say unto you,
It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment,
than for that city.


040:010:016
Behold,
I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves.


040:010:017
But beware of men:
for they will deliver you up to the councils,
and they will scourge you in their synagogues;


040:010:018
And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake,
for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.


040:010:019
But when they deliver you up,
take no thought how or what ye shall speak:
for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.


040:010:020
For it is not ye that speak,
but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.


040:010:021
And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death,
and the father the child:
and the children shall rise up against their parents,
and cause them to be put to death.


040:010:022
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.


040:010:023
But when they persecute you in this city,
flee ye into another:
for verily I say unto you,
Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel,
till the Son of man be come.


040:010:024
The disciple is not above his master,
nor the servant above his lord.


040:010:025
It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master,
and the servant as his lord.
If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub,
how much more shall they call them of his household?


040:010:026
Fear them not therefore:
for there is nothing covered,
that shall not be revealed;
and hid,
that shall not be known.


040:010:027
What I tell you in darkness,
that speak ye in light:
and what ye hear in the ear,
that preach ye upon the housetops.


040:010:028
And fear not them which kill the body,
but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.


040:010:029
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.


040:010:030
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.


040:010:031
Fear ye not therefore,
ye are of more value than many sparrows.


040:010:032
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.


040:010:033
But whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.


040:010:034
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace,
but a sword.


040:010:035
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against her mother,
and the daughter in law against her mother in law.


040:010:036
And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.


040:010:037
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.


040:010:038
And he that taketh not his cross,
and followeth after me,
is not worthy of me.


040:010:039
He that findeth his life shall lose it:
and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.


040:010:040
He that receiveth you receiveth me,
and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.


040:010:041
He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward;
and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.


040:010:042
And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple,
verily I say unto you,
he shall in no wise lose his reward.
