These twelve Jesus sent out after instructing them: "Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter any city of the Samaritans;
"Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,
And He went up on the mountain and summoned those whom He Himself wanted, and they came to Him.
And He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases.
And He said to them, "Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.
Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come.
