After these things, the Lord commissioned seventy-two others and sent them on ahead in pairs to every city and place he was about to go.
He said to them, “The harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers for his harvest.
Go! Be warned, though, that I'm sending you out as lambs among wolves.
Carry no wallet, no bag, and no sandals. Don't even greet anyone along the way.
Whenever you enter a house, first say, ‘May peace be on this house.'
If anyone there shares God's peace, then your peace will rest on that person. If not, your blessing will return to you.
