15 And he said to them: "Go forth to the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
16 Whoever will have believed and been baptized will be saved. Yet truly, whoever will not have believed will be condemned.
17 Now these signs will accompany those who believe. In my name, they shall cast out demons. They will speak in new languages.
18 They will take up serpents, and, if they drink anything deadly, it will not harm them. They shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they will be well."
19 And indeed, the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and he sits at the right hand of God.
20 Then they, setting out, preached everywhere, with the Lord cooperating and confirming the word by the accompanying signs.
1 Peter 5:5b-14
5 And infuse all humility among one another, for God resists the arrogant, but to the humble he gives grace.
6 And so, be humbled under the powerful hand of God, so that he may exalt you in the time of visitation.
7 Cast all your cares upon him, for he takes care of you.
8 Be sober and vigilant. For your adversary, the devil, is like a roaring lion, traveling around and seeking those whom he might devour.
9 Resist him by being strong in faith, being aware that the same passions afflict those who are your brothers in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will himself perfect, confirm, and establish us, after a brief time of suffering.
11 To him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
12 I have written briefly, through Sylvanus, whom I consider to be a faithful brother to you, begging and testifying that this is the true grace of God, in which you have been established.
13 The Church which is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you, as does my son, Mark.
14 Greet one another with a holy kiss. Grace be to all of you who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
