And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

“Take nothing for the road,”(A) he told them, “no staff,(B) no traveling bag, no bread, no money; and don’t take an extra shirt. Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there. If they do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.”(C)

He told them: “Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt.(A) Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”(B)

And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

Don’t carry a money-bag,(A) traveling bag,(B) or sandals; (C) don’t greet anyone along the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace(D) to this household.’ If a person of peace is there, your peace(E) will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they offer, for the worker is worthy of his wages.(F) Don’t move from house to house. When you enter any town, and they welcome you, eat the things set before you.(G) Heal the sick(H) who are there, and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God(I) has come near(J) you.’ 10 When you enter any town, and they don’t welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘We are wiping off even the dust of your town that clings to our feet as a witness against you.(K) Know this for certain: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, on that day(L) it will be more tolerable for Sodom(M) than for that town.(N)

Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.

“When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages.(A) Do not move around from house to house.

“When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you.(B) Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God(C) has come near to you.’ 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you.(D) Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’(E) 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom(F) than for that town.(G)

Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

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.

And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:

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.
