Luke 10

Great(i) 1 After these thynges, the Lorde appoynted other .lxx. also, and sent them two and two before hym into euery cytie & place, whyther he him selfe wolde come. 2 Therfore sayd he vnto them: the haruest is great, but the labourers are fewe. Praye ye therfore the lord of the haruest, to sende forth labourers into his haruest. 3 Go your wayes: behold, I sende you forth as lambes among wolues. 4 Beare no wallet, nether scryp, nor shoes, & salute no man by the waye. 5 Into whatsoeuer house ye enter, fyrst saye: Peace be to thys house. 6 And yf the sonne of peace be there, your peace shall rest vpon him: yf not, it shall turne to you agayne. 7 And in the same house tary styll, eatyng and drinckyng soch as they geue: For the labourer is worthy of hys rewarde. Go not from house to house, 8 & into whatsoeuer cytie ye entre, & they receaue you, eate soch thynges as are set before you, 9 and heale the sicke that are therin, and saye vnto them: the kingdome of God is come nye vpon yo 10 But into whatsoeuer citie ye enter, & they receaue you not, go your wayes out into the stretes of the same, & saye: 11 euen the very dust of youre cytie (which cleaueth on vs) do we wype of agaynst you: Not withstanding, be ye sure of thys, that the kyngdome of God was come nye vpon you. 12 I saye vnto you: that it shalbe easier in that daye for Zodome, then for that cytie. 13 Wo vnto the Chorazin: wo vnto the Bethsaida. For yf the miracles had bene done in Tyre and Sidon, which haue bene done in you, they had (a greate whyle ago) repented of theyr synnes, syttyng in heercloth and asshes. 14 Neuerthelesse, it shalbe easier for Tyre and Sidon, at the iudgement, then for you. 15 And thou Capernaum (which art exalted to heauen) shalt be thrust downe to hell. 16 He that heareth you, heareth me: and he that despyseth you, despyseth me: and he that despyseth me; despyseth him that sent me. 17 And the .lxx. turned agayne wt ioye, sayeng: Lorde, euen the very deuels are subdued to vs thorow thy name. 18 And he sayd vnto them: I sawe Satan (as it had bene lightening) falling downe from heauen. 19 Behold, I geue vnto you power, to treade on serpentes, and scorpions, and ouer all maner power of the enemy, and nothing shull hurte you. 20 Neuertheles, in this reioyse not, that the spretes are subdued vnto you: but reioyse, that youre names are wryten in heauen. 21 That same houre reioysed Iesus in ghost, and sayd: I thanke the, O father. Lorde of heauen and earth, that thou hast hyd these thinges from the wyse and prudent, and hast opened them vnto babes. Euen so father, for so pleased it the. 22 All thinges are geuen me of my father. No man knoweth who the sonne is, but the father: and who the father is, but the sonne, & he to whom the sonne wyll shewe hym. 23 And he turned to his disciples, and sayde secretly: Happy are the eyes, which se the thinges that ye se. 24 For I tell you, that many prophetes and kinges haue desired to se those thinges which ye se, and haue not sene them: and to heare those thynges which ye heare, and haue not hearde them. 25 And behold a certayne lawyer stode vp, & tempted him, saying. Master, what shall I do, to inheret eternall lyfe? 26 He sayde vnto him: What is written in the lawe? How redest thou? 27 And he answered and sayde: loue the Lorde thy God, with all thy hert, & with all thy soule, & with all thy strength, & with all thy mynde: and thy neyghbour as thy selfe. 28 And he sayde vnto him: Thou hast answered right. This do, and thou shalt lyue. 29 But he wyllinge to iustifie him selfe, sayde vnto Iesus: And who is my neyghbour? 30 Iesus answered, & sayde, A certayne man descended from Hierusalem to Hierico, & fell among theues, which robbed him of his rayment & wounded him, and departed, leuynge him halfe deed. 31 And it chaunced, that ther came downe a certayne Preste that same waye, & when he sawe him, he passed by. 32 And lyke wyse a Leuite, when he went nye to the place, came and loked on him, & passed by. 33 But a certayne Samaritane, as he iorneyed, came vnto hym: and when he sawe him, he had compassion on him 34 & went to, and bounde vp his woundes, & poured in oyle & wyne, and set him on his awne beaste, and brought him to a commen ynne, and made prouision for him. 35 And on the morow, when he departed, he toke out .ij. pence, & gaue them to the host, & sayd vnto him. Take cure of him & whatsoeuer thou spendest moare, when I come agayne I will recompence the. 36 Which now of these thre thynkest thou, was neyghbour vnto him that fell among the theues? 37 And he sayd: he that shewed mercy on him. Then sayde Iesus vnto him: Go, and do thou lyke wyse. 38 It fortuned that as they went, he entred into a certayne towne. And a certayne woman named Martha receaued him into her house. 39 And this woman had a syster called Mary, which also sate at Iesus fete, & heard his worde. 40 But Martha was combred aboute moch seruynge, & stode & sayde: lorde, doest thou not care, that my syster hath left me to serue alone? Byd her therfore, that she helpe me. 41 And Iesus answered, & sayde vnto her: Martha, Martha, thou art carefull, & troubled about many thinges: 42 verely one is nedefull. Mary hath chosen the good parte, which shall not be taken awaye from her.
