1After these things, Yeshua selected from His Talmidim seventy others and sent them two by two before Him to every place and city to which He was to go. 2And He said to them, “The harvest is great, and the laborers are few; ask therefore the owner of the harvest to bring out laborers to His harvest. 3Go forth; behold, I send you as lambs among wolves. 4Do not carry purses, nor bags, nor shoes; and do not salute any man on the road. 5And to whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Shalom be to this house.’ 6And if a man of shalom is there, let your shalom rest upon him; and if not, your shalom will return to you. 7Remain in that house, eating and drinking of what they have; for a laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house. 8And into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat whatever they set before you; 9and heal those who are sick in it, and say to them, ‘Malkhut HaElohim is come near to you.’ 10But into whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into the street and say, 11‘Even the dust of your city which cleaves to our feet we shake off to you; but know this, that Malkhut HaElohim has come near to you.’ 12I say to you that it will be much easier for S’dom in that day than for that city. 13Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Beit Tza’ida! If the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tzor and Tzidon, perhaps they might have repented in sackcloth and ashes. 14But, it will be easier for Tzor and Tzidon at the judgment day than for you. 15And you, K’far Nakhum, which have exalted yourself up to Heaven, you will be brought down to She’ol. 16He who hears you hears me; and he who oppresses you oppresses me; and he who oppresses me oppresses Him who sent me.”
17So the seventy whom He had sent returned with great joy, and they said to Him, “Adoneinu, even the demons have submitted to us in Your Name.” 18He said to them, “I saw HaSatan falling like lightning from Heaven. 19Behold, I give you power to tread on snakes and scorpions, and to overcome the power of the enemy; and nothing shall harm you. 20But do not rejoice in this, that the demons submit to you; but rejoice because your names are written in Heaven.” 21At that very hour, Yeshua rejoiced in The Ru’akh HaKodesh and said, “I thank You, O Avi, Adon of Heaven and Earth, because You did hide these things from the wise, and men of understanding, and revealed them to children; yes, Avi, for so it was well pleasing in Your presence.” 22And He turned to His Talmidim and said to them, “Everything has been entrusted to me by Avi; and no man knows who is HaBen, except HaAv, and who is HaAv except HaBen, and to whomever HaBen wishes to reveal Him.” 23Then He turned to His Talmidim alone and said, “Happy are the eyes which see what you see. 24For I say to you that many Nevi’im and Melakhim desired to see what you see, and did not see it; and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”
25And behold, a Sofer stood up to test Him, and he said, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit Khayei Olam?” 26Yeshua said to him, “What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?” 27He answered, saying to Him, “You must love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your nefesh and with all your strength, and with all of your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” 28Yeshua said to him, “You spoke the truth; do this, and you shall live.” 29But as he wanted to justify himself, he said to Him, “And who is my neighbor?” 30Yeshua said to him, “There was a man who went down from Yerushalayim to Yerekho, and bandits attacked him and robbed him, and beat him, and left him with little life remaining in him, and they went away. 31And by chance a kohen was going down that road; and he saw him, and passed on. 32And likewise a Levi came and arrived at that place, and saw him, and passed on. 33But a Shomroni, as he journeyed, came where he was, and when he saw him, he had mercy on him. 34And he came to him and bound up his wounds and poured on them wine and oil; and he put him on his own donkey and brought him to the inn and took care of him. 35And in the morning, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever you spend more, when I return, I will give it to you.’ 36Who therefore of these three, as it appears to you, became neighbor to him who fell into the hands of the bandits?” 37He said, “The one who had mercy on him.” Yeshua said to him, “You go also, and do likewise.”
38And it came to pass while they were journeying, He entered into a village; and a woman named Marta received Him into her house. 39And she had a sister whose name was Miryam, and she came and sat at the feet of Adoneinu and listened to His words. 40But Marta was busy with many household cares, and she came and said to Him, “My Adon, you do not seem to care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me.” 41Yeshua answered and said to her, “Marta, Marta, you are worried and excited about many things; 42but one thing is more important; and Miryam has chosen the good portion for herself, which shall not be taken away from her.”
