Luke 10

NLT 1 The Lord now chose seventy-two other disciples and sent them on ahead in pairs to all the towns and villages he planned to visit. 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. NLT 2 These were his instructions to them: "The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few. Pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest, and ask him to send out more workers for his fields. 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. NLT 3 Go now, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves. NIV 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. NLT 4 Don't take along any money, or a traveler's bag, or even an extra pair of sandals. And don't stop to greet anyone on the road." NIV 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. NLT 5 "Whenever you enter a home, give it your blessing. NIV 5 "When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' NLT 6 If those who live there are worthy, the blessing will stand; if they are not, the blessing will return to you. NIV 6 If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. NLT 7 When you enter a town, don't move around from home to home. Stay in one place, eating and drinking what they provide you. Don't hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve their pay." 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. NLT 8 "If a town welcomes you, eat whatever is set before you NIV 8 "When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. NLT 9 and heal the sick. As you heal them, say, 'The Kingdom of God is near you now.' NIV 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.' NLT 10 But if a town refuses to welcome you, go out into its streets and say, NIV 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, NLT 11 'We wipe the dust of your town from our feet as a public announcement of your doom. And don't forget 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.' NLT 12 The truth is, even wicked Sodom will be better off than such a town on the judgment day." NIV 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. NLT 13 "What horrors await you, Korazin and Bethsaida! For if the miracles I did in you had been done in wicked Tyre and Sidon, their people would have sat in deep repentance long ago, clothed in sackcloth and throwing ashes on their heads to show their remorse. 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. NLT 14 Yes, Tyre and Sidon will be better off on the judgment day than you. NIV 14 But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. NLT 15 And you people of Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to the place of the dead." NIV 15 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. NLT 16 Then he said to the disciples, "Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God 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." NLT 17 When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, "Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!" NIV 17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." NLT 18 "Yes," he told them, "I saw Satan falling from heaven as a flash of lightning! NIV 18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. NLT 19 And I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. 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. NLT 20 But don't rejoice just because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered as citizens of heaven." NIV 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." NLT 21 Then Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit and said, "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise and clever, and for revealing it to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way." 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. NLT 22 "My Father has given me authority over everything. No one really knows the Son except the Father, and no one really knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him." 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." NLT 23 Then when they were alone, he turned to the disciples and said, "How privileged you are to see what you have seen. NIV 23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. NLT 24 I tell you, many prophets and kings have longed to see and hear what you have seen and heard, but they could 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." NLT 25 One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: "Teacher, what must I do to receive 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?" NLT 26 Jesus replied, "What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?" NIV 26 "What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?" NLT 27 The man answered, "'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.' And, 'Love your neighbor as 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.' " NLT 28 "Right!" Jesus told him. "Do this and you will live!" NIV 28 "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live." NLT 29 The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" NIV 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" NLT 30 Jesus replied with an illustration: "A Jewish man was traveling on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes and money, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road." 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. NLT 31 "By chance a Jewish priest came along; but when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. 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. NLT 32 A Temple assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed 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. NLT 33 "Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt deep pity. NIV 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. NLT 34 Kneeling beside him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with medicine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he 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. NLT 35 The next day he handed the innkeeper two pieces of silver and told him to take care of the man. 'If his bill runs higher than that,' he said, 'I'll pay the difference the next time I am here.'" 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.' NLT 36 "Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?" Jesus asked. NIV 36 "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" NLT 37 The man replied, "The one who showed him mercy." Then Jesus said, "Yes, now 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." NLT 38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed them into her home. 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. NLT 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord's feet, listening to what he taught. NIV 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. NLT 40 But Martha was worrying over the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, "Lord, doesn't it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me." 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!" NLT 41 But the Lord said to her, "My dear Martha, you are so upset over all these details! NIV 41 "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, NLT 42 There is really only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it -- and I won't take it 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."
