80. Seventy Disciples are
instructed and sent out.

AFTER these things the Lord
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
sedi i
therefore the Lord of the har-
vest, 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,

* Place....Galilee, probably Capernaum.






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 re-
pented, sitting in sack-
cloth and ashes.

14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judg ment, 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

81. Jesus goes to Jerusalem at the Feast of Tabernacles. His Conduct and Discourse during the Feast.

2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.*

3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

4 For there is no man that doth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly if thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

7 The world cannot hate you, but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.


8 Go ye up unto this feast: go not up yet unto this feast, for my time is not yet full come.

9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

10 ¶ But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast not openly, but as it were in secret.

11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

12 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He

*Time....Six Months after the third Passover. Compare Ex. xii. 18. Lev. xxiii. 34.

† Place.... Jerusalem.





is a good man: others said,Nay; but he deceiveth the people. 13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him, for fear of the Jews.

14 Now about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

18 He that speaketh of himself, seeketh his own glory; but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done work, and ye all marvel.


22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers) and ye on the sabbathday circumcise a man.

23 If a man on the sabbathday receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath-day? 24 Judge not according to

the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he whom they seek to kill?

26 But lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

27 Howbeit, we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

28 Then cried Jesus in the temple, as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know him; for I am from him, and he hath sent


30 Then they sought to take him but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?

32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured suchthings concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.

33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.

34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.

35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go,
