Harmony of the Gospels

(No. 87) Luke 10:1-24

Mission of seventy

Luke
10:1-24
{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.
