Luke 10

BBE 1 Now after these things, the Lord made selection of seventy others and sent them before him, two together, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. NIV 1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. BBE 2 And he said to them, There is much grain ready to be cut, but not enough workers: so make prayer to the Lord of the grain-fields that he will send workers to get in the grain. NIV 2 He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. BBE 3 Go on your way: see, I send you out like lambs among wolves. NIV 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. BBE 4 Take no bag for money or for food, and no shoes; say no word to any man on the way. NIV 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. BBE 5 And whenever you go into a house, first say, Peace be to this house. NIV 5 "When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' BBE 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will be with him: but if not, it will come back to you again. NIV 6 If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. BBE 7 And keep in that same house, taking what food and drink they give you: for the worker has a right to his reward. Do not go from house to house. NIV 7 Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house. BBE 8 And into whatever town you go, if they take you in, take whatever food is given to you: NIV 8 "When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. BBE 9 And make well those in it who are ill and say to them, The kingdom of God is near to you. NIV 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.' BBE 10 But if you go into a town where they will not have you, go out into the streets of it and say, NIV 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, BBE 11 Even the dust of your town, which is on our feet, we put off as a witness against you; but be certain of this, that the kingdom of God is near. NIV 11 'Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.' BBE 12 I say to you, It will be better in that day for Sodom than for that town. NIV 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. BBE 13 A curse is on you, Chorazin! A curse is on you, Beth-saida! For if such works of power had been done in Tyre and Sidon as have been done in you, they would have been turned from their sins, in days gone by, seated in the dust. NIV 13 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. BBE 14 But it will be better for Tyre and Sidon, in the day of judging, than for you. NIV 14 But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. BBE 15 And you, Capernaum, were you not lifted up to heaven? you will go down to hell. NIV 15 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. BBE 16 Whoever gives ear to you, gives ear to me; and whoever is against you, is against me; and whoever is against me, is against him who sent me. NIV 16 "He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me." BBE 17 And the seventy came back with joy, saying, Lord, even the evil spirits are under our power in your name. NIV 17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." BBE 18 And he said, I was watching for Satan, falling from heaven like a star. NIV 18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. BBE 19 See, I have given you power to put your feet on snakes and evil beasts, and over all the strength of him who is against you: and nothing will do you damage. NIV 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. BBE 20 Do not be glad, however, because you have power over spirits, but because your names are recorded in heaven. NIV 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." BBE 21 In that same hour he was full of joy in the Holy Spirit and said, I give praise to you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have kept these things secret from the wise and the men of learning, and have made them clear to little children: for so, O Father, it was pleasing in your eyes. NIV 21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. BBE 22 All things have been given to me by my Father: and no one has knowledge of the Son, but only the Father: and of the Father, but only the Son, and he to whom the Son will make it clear. NIV 22 "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him." BBE 23 And, turning to the disciples, he said privately, Happy are the eyes which see the things you see: NIV 23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. BBE 24 For I say to you that numbers of prophets and kings have had a desire to see the things which you see, and have not seen them, and to have knowledge of the things which have come to your ears, and they had it not. NIV 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it." BBE 25 And a certain teacher of the law got up and put him to the test, saying, Master, what have I to do so that I may have eternal life? NIV 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" BBE 26 And he said to him, What does the law say, in your reading of it? NIV 26 "What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?" BBE 27 And he, answering, said, Have love for the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and for your neighbour as for yourself. NIV 27 He answered: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' " BBE 28 And he said, You have given the right answer: do this and you will have life. NIV 28 "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live." BBE 29 But he, desiring to put himself in the right, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbour? NIV 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" BBE 30 And Jesus, answering him, said, A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he got into the hands of thieves, who took his clothing and gave him cruel blows, and when they went away, he was half dead. NIV 30 In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. BBE 31 And by chance a certain priest was going down that way: and when he saw him, he went by on the other side. NIV 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. BBE 32 And in the same way, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, went by on the other side. NIV 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. BBE 33 But a certain man of Samaria, journeying that way, came where he was, and when he saw him, he was moved with pity for him, NIV 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. BBE 34 And came to him and put clean linen round his wounds, with oil and wine; and he put him on his beast and took him to a house and took care of him. NIV 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. BBE 35 And the day after he took two pennies and gave them to the owner of the house and said, Take care of him; and if this money is not enough, when I come again I will give you whatever more is needed. NIV 35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.' BBE 36 Which of these three men, in your opinion, was neighbour to the man who came into the hands of thieves? NIV 36 "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" BBE 37 And he said, The one who had mercy on him. And Jesus said, Go and do the same. NIV 37 The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise." BBE 38 Now, while they were on their way, he came to a certain town; and a woman named Martha took him into her house. NIV 38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. BBE 39 And she had a sister, by name Mary, who took her seat at the Lord's feet and gave attention to his words. NIV 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. BBE 40 But Martha had her hands full of the work of the house, and she came to him and said, Lord, is it nothing to you that my sister has let me do all the work? Say to her that she is to give me some help. NIV 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself ? Tell her to help me!" BBE 41 But the Lord, answering, said to her, Martha, Martha, you are full of care and troubled about such a number of things: NIV 41 "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, BBE 42 Little is needed, or even one thing only: for Mary has taken that good part, which will not be taken away from her. NIV 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
