Jesus Sends Forth the Seventy
Interwoven Gospels

Now after these things, the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them, two and two, into every city and place whither He Himself was about to come. And He said to them, "The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers are few. Pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He may send forth laborers into His harvest. Go your ways; behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry neither a purse, nor a wallet, nor sandals; and salute no one by the way. And into whatever house ye may enter, first say, 'Peace to this house." And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; but if not so, it shall return to you. And in the same house abide, eating and drinking the things given by them; for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatever city ye enter and they receive you, eat the things set before you, and heal the sick therein, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come to you." But into whatever city ye enter, and they do not receive you, go out into the streets and say, 'Even the dust from your city which adhereth to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know ye this, that the kingdom of God has come,' I say to you, that it will be more tolerable for Sodom in that day, than for that city. He that heareth you, heareth Me; and he that rejecteth you, rejecteth Me; and he that rejecteth Me, rejecteth Him Who sent Me.

"Woe to thee, Chorazin! Woe to thee, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, shalt thou be exalted to heaven? Thou shalt be brought down to Hades!"
