July 2 8.8 After this, the Lord appointed1 seventy others and sent them ahead in pairs to every city he was about to visit. He said, “The harvest2 is plentiful, but workers are few. Ask the Lord to send workers into His harvest. Go,3 I send you as lambs amidst wolves. Dont carry a purse, a wallet or shoes. Any city or village you enter, inquire who in it is worthy and stay there, accepting their food and drink till you depart, for a worker deserves his wages. Any house you enter, say, Peace to this house. If a son of peace is there, your peace will stay there, if not, it will return to you. Wherever you are welcome, eat whatever they give you. Heal4 their sick, saying, Gods kingdom is near you. When a city doesnt welcome you, go into the streets, saying, Even your towns dust on our feet we remove in protest, and know that Gods kingdom has been near you. In that day, Gods judgment will be more bearable for Sodom than for that town.”
