Luke 9:4

4 Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.

Luke 9:4 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 9:4

And whatsoever house ye enter into
In any town, or city, they should come to in their journey through Judea, and should enter into for the sake of lodging, during their stay:

there abide;
do not shift quarters, or move from house to house:

and thence depart;
the house you come into first, go out of last, when ye leave the town or city. The Vulgate Latin and Persic versions read, and thence do not depart: and so Beza says it is read in a certain copy, but then the sense is the same, as the Ethiopic version renders it, "do not go out from thence, until ye depart"; that is, do not leave the house, till you depart out of the town or city; agreeably to which is the Arabic version, "remain in it until the time of your going out"; (See Gill on Matthew 10:11).

Luke 9:4 In-Context

2 Then He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
3 "Take nothing for the road," He told them, "no walking stick, no traveling bag, no bread, no money; and don't take an extra shirt.
4 Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
5 If they do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them."
6 So they went out and traveled from village to village, proclaiming the good news and healing everywhere.
