Calling the Twelve to him,1 he sent them out two by two2 and gave them authority over evil spirits.3
These were his instructions: "Take nothing for the journey except a staff--no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.
Wear sandals but not an extra tunic.
Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town.
And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet4 when you leave, as a testimony against them."
They went out and preached that people should repent.5
They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil6 and healed them.
