10:1 After these things ADONAI appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
10:2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to Master of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
10:3 Go your ways: Hinei, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
10:4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
10:5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Shalom [be] to this house.
10:6 And if the son of Shalom be there, your Shalom shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
10:8 And into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, The Malkut Elohim is come nigh to you.
10:10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
10:11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaves on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the Malkut Elohim is come nigh to you.
10:12 But I say to you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for S'dom, than for that city.
Woe to you, Korazin!
Woe to yout, Beit Tzaidah!
For if the mighty works had been done in Tzor and Tzidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tzor and Tzidon at the mispatim, than for you.
10:15 And you, K'far-Nachum, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades.
10:16 He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me."
10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Master, even the devils are subject to us through your name.
10:18 And he said to them, I beheld s.a.t.a.n as lightning fall from shamayim.
10:19 Hinei, I give to you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject to you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in shamayim.
10:21 In that hour Yeshua (ישוע) rejoiced in ruach, and said, I thank You, O Abba, Master of shamayim and earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes: even so, Abba; for so it seemed good in your sight.
10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Abba: and no man knows who the Son is, but the Abba; and who the Abba is, but the Son, and [he] to whom the Son will reveal [him].
10:23 And he turned him to [his] Talmidim, and said privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things that you see:
10:24 For I tell you, that many Neviim and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard [them].
10:25 And, Hinei, a certain Torah Teacher stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
10:26 He said to him, What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?
10:27 And he answering said, You shall love ADONAI your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.
10:28 And he said to him, You have answered right: this do, and you shall live.
10:29 But he, willing to justify himself, said to Yeshua (ישוע), And who is my neighbour?
10:30 And Yeshua (ישוע) answering said, A certain [man] went down from Yerushalayim to Yericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him] half dead.
10:31 And by chance there came down a certain Kohen that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
10:32 And likewise a Leviim, when he was at the place, came and looked [on him], and passed by on the other side.
10:33 But a certain Shomron, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion [on him],
10:34 And went to [him], and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
10:35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave [them] to the host, and said to him, Take care of him; and whatsoever you spend more, when I come again, I will repay you.
10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour to him that fell among the thieves?
10:37 And he said, He that shewed rachamim (mercy) on him. Then said Yeshua (ישוע) to him, Go, and do you likewise.
10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
10:39 And she had a sister called Miryam, which also sat at Yeshua (ישוע)' feet, and heard his word.
10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Master, dost thou not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? allow her therefore that she help me.
10:41 And Yeshua (ישוע) answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are careful and troubled about many things:
10:42 But one thing is needful: and Miryam has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
