ContextThe Twelve Sent Out
5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter you not: 6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely you have received, freely give. 9Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10Nor money for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11And into whatever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go there. 12And when you come into an house, salute it. 13And if the house be worthy, let your peace come on it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15Truly I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
