Don’t acquire gold, silver, or copper for your money-belts.(A) 10 Don’t take a traveling bag for the road, or an extra shirt, sandals, or a staff, for the worker(B) is worthy of his food. 11 When you enter any town or village, find out who is worthy, and stay there until you leave. 12 Greet a household when you enter it,(C) 13 and if the household is worthy, let your peace be on it; but if it is unworthy, let your peace return to you.(D) 14 If anyone does not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet(E) when you leave that house or town. 15 Truly I tell you, it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment(F) for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.(G)

Footnotes

  1. 6:11 Other mss add Truly I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah on judgment day than for that town.

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)
