THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT LUKE

- Luke 10 -

 








CHAPTER 10





1 After these things the Lord appointed
other seventy also, and sent them two
and two before his face into every
city and place, whither he himself
would come.

2 Therefore said he unto them, The
harvest truly is great, but the labourers
are few: pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he would send
forth labourers into his harvest.

3 Go your ways: behold, I send you
forth as lambs among wolves.

4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip,
nor shoes: and salute no man by the
way.

5 And into whatsoever house ye enter,
first say, Peace be to this house.


6 And if the son of peace be there,
your peace shall rest upon it: if not,
it shall turn to you again.

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.

8 And into whatsoever city ye enter,
and they receive you, eat such things
as are set before you:

9 And heal the sick that are therein,
and say unto them, The kingdom of God
is come nigh unto you.

10 But into whatsoever city ye enter,
and they receive you not, go your ways
out into the streets of the same, and
say,

11 Even the very dust of your city,
which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off
against you: notwithstanding be ye
sure of this, that the kingdom of God
is come nigh unto you.

12 But I say unto you, that it shall
be more tolerable in that day for Sodom,
than for that city.

13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto
thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty
works had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
which have been done in you, they had
a great while ago repented, sitting
in sackcloth and ashes.

14 But it shall be more tolerable
for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment,
than for you.

15 And thou, Capernaum, which art
exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust
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 returned again
with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils
are subject unto us through thy name.


18 And he said unto them, I beheld
Satan as lightning fall from heaven.


19 Behold, I give unto you power to
tread on serpents and scorpions, and
over all the power of the enemy: and
nothing shall by any means hurt you.


20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice
not, that the spirits are subject unto
you; but rather rejoice, because your
names are written in heaven.

21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in
spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth, that thou
hast hid these things from the wise
and prudent, and hast revealed them
unto babes: even so, Father; for so
it seemed good in thy sight.

22 All things are delivered to me
of my Father: and no man knoweth who
the Son is, but the Father; and who
the Father is, but the Son, and he
to whom the Son will reveal him.

23 #And he turned him unto his disciples,
and said privately, Blessed are the
eyes which see the things that ye see:


24 For I tell you, that many prophets
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.

25 #And, behold, a certain lawyer
stood up, and tempted him, saying,
Master, what shall I do to inherit
eternal life?

26 He said unto him, What is written
in the law? how readest thou?

27 And he answering said, Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with
all thy strength, and with all thy
mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.


28 And he said unto him, Thou hast
answered right: this do, and thou shalt
live.

29 But he, willing to justify himself,
said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?


30 And Jesus answering said, A certain
man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
and fell among thieves, which stripped
him of his raiment, and wounded him,
and departed, leaving him half dead.


31 And by chance there came down a
certain priest that way: and when he
saw him, he passed by on the other
side.

32 And likewise a Levite, when he
was at the place, came and looked on
him, and passed by on the other side.


33 But a certain Samaritan, as he
journeyed, came where he was: and when
he saw him, he had compassion on him,


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.


35 And on the morrow when he departed,
he took out two pence, and gave them
to the host, and said unto him, Take
care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest
more, when I come again, I will repay
thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest
thou, was neighbour unto him that fell
among the thieves?

37 And he said, He that shewed mercy
on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go,
and do thou likewise.

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.

39 And she had a sister called Mary,
which also sat at Jesus' feet, and
heard his word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much
serving, and came to him, and said,
Lord, dost thou not care that my sister
hath left me to serve alone? bid her
therefore that she help me.

unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art
careful and troubled about many things:


42 But one thing is needful: and Mary
hath chosen that good part, which shall
not be taken away from her.
