1 Then, after these things, the Lord also designated another seventy-two. And he sent them in pairs before his face, into every city and place where he was to arrive.
2 And he said to them: "Certainly the harvest is great, but the workers are few. Therefore, ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers into his harvest.
3 Go forth. Behold, I send you out like lambs among wolves.
4 Do not choose to carry a purse, nor provisions, nor shoes; and you shall greet no one along the way.
5 Into whatever house you will have entered, first say, 'Peace to this house.'
6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you.
7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking the things that are with them. For the worker is worthy of his pay. Do not choose to pass from house to house.
8 And into whatever city you have entered and they have received you, eat what they set before you.
9 And cure the sick who are in that place, and proclaim to them, 'The kingdom of God has drawn near to you.'
2 Timothy 4:10-17
10 Crescens has gone to Galatia; Titus to Dalmatia.
11 Luke alone is with me. Take Mark and bring him with you; for he is useful to me in the ministry.
12 But Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus.
13 When you return, bring with you the supplies that I left with Carpus at Troas, and the books, but especially the parchments.
14 Alexander the coppersmith has shown me much evil; the Lord will repay him according to his works.
15 And you should also avoid him; for he has strongly resisted our words.
16 At my first defense, no one stood by me, but everyone abandoned me. May it not be counted against them!
17 But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the preaching would be accomplished, and so that all the Gentiles would hear. And I was freed from the mouth of the lion.
