After this, the Lord appointed seventy other talmidim and sent them on ahead in pairs to every town and place where he himself was about to go.
He said to them, "To be sure, there is a large harvest. But there are few workers. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the Harvest that he speed workers out to gather in his harvest.
Get going now, but pay attention! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
Don't carry a money-belt or a pack, and don't stop to shmoose with people on the road.
"Whenever you enter a house, first say, `Shalom!' to the household.
If a seeker of shalom is there, your `Shalom!' will find its rest with him; and if there isn't, it will return to you.
Stay in that same house, eating and drinking what they offer, for a worker deserves his wages -- don't move about from house to house.
