THE TWELVE COMMISSIONED.

Matthew x: 1, 5-8.

ND when he had called unto him his twelve 1

disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

THESE twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded | 5 them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye

not:

BUT go rather to the lost sheep of the house of 6 Israel.

AND as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of 7 heaven is at hand.

HEAL the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,
cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely
give.

xvi: 14-18.

AND he said unto them, The harvest is plenteous, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest.

3 Go YOUR ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves.

4 CARRY no purse, no wallet, no shoes: and salute no man on the way.

5 AND into whatsoever house ye shall enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

6 AND if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him: but if not, it shall turn to you again.

AND in that same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. 8 AND into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 9 AND heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

THE WORLD THEIR FIELD.

MARK XVI: 14-18.

ND afterward he was manifested unto the

A eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

AND he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, 's and preach the gospel to the whole creation.

HE THAT believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 16 but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned.

AND these signs shall follow them that believe: 17 in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

THEY shall take up serpents, and if they drink 18 any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Revised Version.)

YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER.
