The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
7 Jesus called the Twelve to him, and sent them out in pairs. He gave them authority and power to deal with the evil opposition. 7 Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits.
8 He sent them off with these instructions: "Don't think you need a lot of extra equipment for this. You are the equipment. No special appeals for funds. Keep it simple. 8 These were his instructions: "Take nothing for the journey except a staff--no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.
9 9 Wear sandals but not an extra tunic.
10 "And no luxury inns. Get a modest place and be content there until you leave. 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town.
11 "If you're not welcomed, not listened to, quietly withdraw. Don't make a scene. Shrug your shoulders and be on your way." 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them."
12 Then they were on the road. They preached with joyful urgency that life can be radically different; 12 They went out and preached that people should repent.
13 right and left they sent the demons packing; they brought wellness to the sick, anointing their bodies, healing their spirits. 13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
