After this the Lord appointed 72 others. He sent them out two by two ahead of him. They went to every town and place where he was about to go.
He told them, "The harvest is huge, but the workers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field.
"Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
Do not take a purse or bag or sandals. And don't greet anyone on the road.
"When you enter a house, first say, 'May this house be blessed with peace.'
If someone there loves peace, your blessing of peace will rest on him. If not, it will return to you.
