therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send 10 forth labourers into his harvest. And he called

unto him his twelve disciples, and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of disease and all manner of sickness. 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon, who is called Peter,

and Andrew his brother; James the son of 3 Zebedee, and Jolin his brother; Philip, and

Bartholomew ; 'Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphæus, and Thad4 dæus; Simon the 'Cananæan, and Judas Is-Or, Zealot. 5 cariot, who also ’ betrayed him.

receive you, nor hear your words, as ye go forth

out of that house or that city, shake off the 15 dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It

shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom

reward. 11 And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an

end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and preach in their cities.

Now when John heard in the prison the 2 works of the Christ, he sent by his disciples, and said unto him, Art thou he that cometh, or 3 look we for another? And Jesus answered and 4 said unto them, Go your way and tell John the things which ye do hear and see: the blind 5 receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers

preached to them. And blessed is he, whoso- 6 ever shall find none occasion of stumbling in me. And as these went their way, Jesus began to 7 say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to behold ? a reed shaken with the wind ?
