unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plen38 teous, but the labourers are few. Pray yo
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.

worthy; and there abide till ye go forth. 12 And as ye enter into the house, salute it. 13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace
come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your 14 peace return to yon. And whosoever shall not
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
and Gomor ıh in the day of judgement, than for that city.

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
are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead Or, the gospel are raised up, and the poor have 'good tidings
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 ? But what went ye 8 out for to see? a man clothed in soft rai
ment? Behold, they that wear soft raiment are * Many ancient in kings' houses. But wherefore went ye 9 authorities read But what Out! to see a propnet! I ea, went ye out and much more than a prophct. This is he, 10 to see? a prophet?
