LUK 10:1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.
LUK 10:2 He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
LUK 10:3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
LUK 10:4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
LUK 10:5 "When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.'
LUK 10:6 If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you.
LUK 10:7 Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
LUK 10:8 "When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you.
LUK 10:9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.'
LUK 10:10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say,
LUK 10:11 'Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.'
LUK 10:12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
LUK 10:13 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
LUK 10:14 But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you.
LUK 10:15 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths.
LUK 10:16 "He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me."
LUK 10:17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name."
LUK 10:18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
LUK 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
LUK 10:20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
LUK 10:21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
LUK 10:22 "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
LUK 10:23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
LUK 10:24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
LUK 10:25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
LUK 10:26 "What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?"
LUK 10:27 He answered: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
LUK 10:28 "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live."
LUK 10:29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
LUK 10:30 In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.
LUK 10:31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
LUK 10:32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
LUK 10:33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
LUK 10:34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.
LUK 10:35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'
LUK 10:36 "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"
LUK 10:37 The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."
LUK 10:38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
LUK 10:39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said.
LUK 10:40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"
LUK 10:41 "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things,
LUK 10:42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her
."

1Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and all his men camped at the spring of Harod. The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near the hill of Moreh.  
2The LORD said to Gideon, "You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength has saved her,  
3announce now to the people, 'Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.'" So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained.  
4But the LORD said to Gideon, "There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will sift them for you there. If I say, 'This one shall go with you,' he shall go; but if I say, 'This one shall not go with you,' he shall not go."  
5So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the LORD told him, "Separate those who lap the water with their tongues like a dog from those who kneel down to drink."  
6Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths. All the rest got down on their knees to drink.  
7The LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the other men go, each to his own place."  
8So Gideon sent the rest of the Israelites to their tents but kept the three hundred, who took over the provisions and trumpets of the others. Now the camp of Midian lay below him in the valley.  
9During that night the LORD said to Gideon, "Get up, go down against the camp, because I am going to give it into your hands.  
10If you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah  
11and listen to what they are saying. Afterward, you will be encouraged to attack the camp." So he and Purah his servant went down to the outposts of the camp.  
12The Midianites, the Amalekites and all the other eastern peoples had settled in the valley, thick as locusts. Their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore.  
13Gideon arrived just as a man was telling a friend his dream. "I had a dream," he was saying. "A round loaf of barley bread came tumbling into the Midianite camp. It struck the tent with such force that the tent overturned and collapsed."  
14His friend responded, "This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands."  
15When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he worshiped God. He returned to the camp of Israel and called out, "Get up! The LORD has given the Midianite camp into your hands."  
16Dividing the three hundred men into three companies, he placed trumpets and empty jars in the hands of all of them, with torches inside.  
17"Watch me," he told them. "Follow my lead. When I get to the edge of the camp, do exactly as I do.  
18When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, then from all around the camp blow yours and shout, 'For the LORD and for Gideon.'"  
19Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands.  
20The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, "A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!"  
21While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.  
22When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the LORD caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords. The army fled to Beth Shittah toward Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah near Tabbath.  
23Israelites from Naphtali, Asher and all Manasseh were called out, and they pursued the Midianites.  
24Gideon sent messengers throughout the hill country of Ephraim, saying, "Come down against the Midianites and seize the waters of the Jordan ahead of them as far as Beth Barah." So all the men of Ephraim were called out and they took the waters of the Jordan as far as Beth Barah.  
25They also captured two of the Midianite leaders, Oreb and Zeeb. They killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb at the winepress of Zeeb. They pursued the Midianites and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon, who was by the Jordan.
