the names of the twelves apostle are these; The first, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of

twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying Go not into the way of the
Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6. But go
rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7. And as
ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have
received, freely give.
Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses;
scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for
the workman is worthy of his meat.
into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and
there abide till ye go thence.
when ye come into a house, salute it.
13. And if
the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let
your peace return to you.
whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that
house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in
the day of judgment, than for that city.
I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as
serpents, and harmless as doves.
beware of men; for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will
scourge you in their synagogues;
18. And ye
shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against
them and the Gentiles.
when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it
shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20. For it
is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21. And the
brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child:
children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22. And ye
shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end
shall be saved.
when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say
unto you, ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man
disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25. It is
enough for the disciple that the be as his master, and the servant as his lord.
If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they
call them of his household?
them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;
and hid, that shall not be known.
27. What I
tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that
preach ye upon the housetops.
fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather
fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
29. Are not
two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground
without your Father.
30. But the
very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31. Fear ye
not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before
my Father which is in heaven.
whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which
is in heaven.

35. For I
am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against
her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
36. And a
