Matthew 10 ©
1 Christ sendeth out his twelve apostles with power to do miracles. 5 He instructeth them; 16 and forewarning them of persecutions, suggesteth motives of comfort and constancy; 40 he promiseth a blessing to those who should receive them.
AND awhen he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power 1against unclean spirits, to bcast them out, and to heal all *manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
cNow the names of the twelve apostles are these; dThe first, Simon, ewho is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Simon hthe Canaanite, and iJudas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
2Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
Nor m*scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet 3staves: nfor the workman is worthy of his meat.
And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, oenquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
*Verily I say unto you, sIt shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
gThe disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
iFear them not therefore: jfor there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
mAre not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
nBut the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
oFear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
And ua man's foes shall be they of his own household.
