took away the stone from the place where the dead was
laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I 42 thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that
thou hearest me always : but because of the people which
stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast 43 sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a 44 loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead
came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes : and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto
them, Loose him, and let him go. 45 Then many of the Jews which came to No. 154.

went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things
Jesus had done. 47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a
council, and said, What do we ? for this man doeth many 48 miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe
on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both 49 our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas,
being the high-priest that same year, said unto them, Ye 50 know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient for
us, that one man should die for the people, and that the 51 whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of him.

only, but that also he should gather together in one the 53 children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from
that day forth they took counsel together for to put him 54 to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among
the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

THE SEVENTY SENT. ,
SECTION 60,-(163) From Capernaum Jesus sends seventy of his disciples, in companies of two, wheresoever he himself designed to come; and waits at Capernaum for their return-(164) Jesus answers the inquiry of a certain lawyer concerning eternal life; and takes occasion thence to deliver the second of his moral parables, which sets forth the humanity of a certain Samaritan. Luke x, 1–37. 1 After these things the Lord appointed other No.163.

before his face into every city and place, whither he him2 self would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray
ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send 3 forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, 4 1 send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither
purse, nor scrip, nor shoes : and salute no man by the way. 5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to 6 this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace 7 shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And
in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things
as they give : for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go 8 not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye
enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set 9 before you : and heal the sick that are therein, and say
unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not,
go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we
do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of
this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that 13 day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Cho
razin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works . had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in
you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth 14 and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and 15 Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Caper
naum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to 16 hell. He that heareth you heareth me; and he that

THE SEVENTY RETURN.
115 despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, 17 even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall 18 from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on 19 serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Not- 20 withstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you: but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank 21 thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes : even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me 22 of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. And he turned him unto 23 his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: for I tell you, that many pro- 24 phets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And 29 who is my neighbour ? And Jesus, answering said, A 30

116 JESUS IS ENTERTAINED BY MARTHA.
certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and
fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and 31 wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And
by chance there came down a certain priest that way; and 32 when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And
likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and 33 looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But
a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was : 34 and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and
went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to 35 an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow, when
he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and what
soever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay 36 thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was 37 neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves ? And
he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

needful : and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
