Christ sends forth and instructs his seventy-two disciples. The good Samaritan.
1 And after these things the Lord appointed also other seventy-two: and he sent them two and two before his face into every city and place whither he himself was to come.
Post haec autem designavit Dominus et alios septuaginta duos : et misit illos binos ante faciem suam in omnem civitatem et locum, quo erat ipse venturus.
2 And he said to them: The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send labourers into his harvest.
Et dicebat illis : Messis quidem multa, operarii autem pauci. Rogate ergo dominum messis ut mittat operarios in messem suam.
3 Go: Behold I send you as lambs among wolves.
Ite : ecce ego mitto vos sicut agnos inter lupos.
4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes; and salute no man by the way.
Nolite portare sacculum, neque peram, neque calceamenta, et neminem per viam salutaveritis.
5 Into whatsoever house you enter, first say: Peace be to this house.
In quamcumque domum intraveritis, primum dicite : Pax huic domui :
6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you.
et si ibi fuerit filius pacis, requiescet super illum pax vestra : sin autem, ad vos revertetur.
7 And in the same house, remain, eating and drinking such things as they have: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Remove not from house to house.
In eadem autem domo manete, edentes et bibentes quae apud illos sunt : dignus est enim operarius mercede sua. Nolite transire de domo in domum.
8 And into what city soever you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.
Et in quamcumque civitatem intraveritis, et susceperint vos, manducate quae apponuntur vobis :
9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say to them: The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
et curate infirmos, qui in illa sunt, et dicite illis : Appropinquavit in vos regnum Dei.
10 But into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you not, going forth into the streets thereof, say:
In quamcumque autem civitatem intraveritis, et non susceperint vos, exeuntes in plateas ejus, dicite :
11 Even the very dust of your city that cleaveth to us, we wipe off against you. Yet know this, that the kingdom of God is at hand.
Etiam pulverem, qui adhaesit nobis de civitate vestra, extergimus in vos : tamen hoc scitote, quia appropinquavit regnum Dei.
12 I say to you, it shall be more tolerable at that day for Sodom, than for that city.
Dico vobis, quia Sodomis in die illa remissius erit, quam illi civitati.
13 Woe to thee, Corozain, woe to thee, Bethsaida. For if in Tyre and Sidon had been wrought the mighty works that have been wrought in you, they would have done penance long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
Vae tibi Corozain! vae tibi Bethsaida! quia si in Tyro et Sidone factae fuissent virtutes quae factae sunt in vobis, olim in cilicio et cinere sedentes poeniterent.
14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.
Verumtamen Tyro et Sidoni remissius erit in judicio, quam vobis.
15 And thou, Capharnaum, which art exalted unto heaven, thou shalt be thrust down to hell.
Et tu Capharnaum, usque ad caelum exaltata, usque ad infernum demergeris.
16 He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.
Qui vos audit, me audit : et qui vos spernit, me spernit. Qui autem me spernit, spernit eum qui misit me.
17 And the seventy-two returned with joy, saying: Lord, the devils also are subject to us in thy name.
Reversi sunt autem septuaginta duo cum gaudio, dicentes : Domine, etiam daemonia subjiciuntur nobis in nomine tuo.
18 And he said to them: I saw Satan like lightning falling from heaven.
Et ait illis : Videbam Satanam sicut fulgor de caelo cadentem.
19 Behold, I have given you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall hurt you.
Ecce dedi vobis potestatem calcandi supra serpentes, et scorpiones, et super omnem virtutem inimici : et nihil vobis nocebit.
20 But yet rejoice not in this, that spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice in this, that your names are written in heaven.
Verumtamen in hoc nolite gaudere quia spiritus vobis subjiciuntur : gaudete autem, quod nomina vestra scripta sunt in caelis.
21 In that same hour, he rejoiced in the Holy Ghost, and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to little ones. Yea, Father, for so it hath seemed good in thy sight.
In ipsa hora exsultavit Spiritu Sancto, et dixit : Confiteor tibi Pater, Domine caeli et terrae, quod abscondisti haec a sapientibus et prudentibus, et revelasti ea parvulis. Etiam Pater : quoniam sic placuit ante te.
22 All things are delivered to me by my Father; and no one knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and to whom the Son will reveal him.
Omnia mihi tradita sunt a Patre meo. Et nemo scit quis sit Filius, nisi Pater : et quis sit Pater, nisi Filius, et cui voluerit Filius revelare.
23 And turning to his disciples, he said: Blessed are the eyes that see the things which you see.
Et conversus ad discipulos suos, dixit : Beati oculi qui vident quae vos videtis.
24 For I say to you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them; and to hear the things that you hear, and have not heard them.
Dico enim vobis quod multi prophetae et reges voluerunt videre quae vos videtis, et non viderunt : et audire quae auditis, et non audierunt.
25 And behold a certain lawyer stood up, tempting him, and saying, Master, what must I do to possess eternal life?
Et ecce quidam legisperitus surrexit tentans illum, et dicens : Magister, quid faciendo vitam aeternam possidebo?
26 But he said to him: What is written in the law? how readest thou?
At ille dixit ad eum : In lege quid scriptum est? quomodo legis?
27 He answering, said: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.
Ille respondens dixit : Diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et ex tota anima tua, et ex omnibus virtutibus tuis, et ex omni mente tua : et proximum tuum sicut teipsum.
28 And he said to him: Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
Dixitque illi : Recte respondisti : hoc fac, et vives.
29 But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus: And who is my neighbour?
Ille autem volens justificare seipsum, dixit ad Jesum : Et quis est meus proximus?
30 And Jesus answering, said: A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half dead.
Suscipiens autem Jesus, dixit : Homo quidam descendebat ab Jerusalem in Jericho, et incidit in latrones, qui etiam despoliaverunt eum : et plagis impositis abierunt semivivo relicto.
31 And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way: and seeing him, passed by.
Accidit autem ut sacerdos quidam descenderet eadem via : et viso illo praeterivit.
32 In like manner also a Levite, when he was near the place and saw him, passed by.
Similiter et Levita, cum esset secus locum, et videret eum, pertransiit.
33 But a certain Samaritan being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion.
Samaritanus autem quidam iter faciens, venit secus eum : et videns eum, misericordia motus est.
34 And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine: and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
Et appropians alligavit vulnera ejus, infundens oleum et vinum : et imponens illum in jumentum suum, duxit in stabulum, et curam ejus egit.
35 And the next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said: Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and above, I, at my return, will repay thee.
Et altera die protulit duos denarios, et dedit stabulario, et ait : Curam illius habe : et quodcumque supererogaveris, ego cum rediero reddam tibi.
36 Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbour to him that fell among the robbers?
Quis horum trium videtur tibi proximus fuisse illi, qui incidit in latrones?
37 But he said: He that shewed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him: Go, and do thou in like manner.
At ille dixit : Qui fecit misericordiam in illum. Et ait illi Jesus : Vade, et tu fac similiter.
38 Now it came to pass as they went, that he entered into a certain town: and a certain woman named Martha, received him into her house.
Factum est autem, dum irent, et ipse intravit in quoddam castellum : et mulier quaedam, Martha nomine, excepit illum in domum suam,
39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sitting also at the Lord's feet, heard his word.
et huic erat soror nomine Maria, quae etiam sedens secus pedes Domini, audiebat verbum illius.
40 But Martha was busy about much serving. Who stood and said: Lord, hast thou no care that my sister hath left me alone to serve? speak to her therefore, that she help me.
Martha autem satagebat circa frequens ministerium : quae stetit, et ait : Domine, non est tibi curae quod soror mea reliquit me solam ministrare? dic ergo illi ut me adjuvet.
41 And the Lord answering, said to her: Martha, Martha, thou art careful, and art troubled about many things:
Et respondens dixit illis Dominus : Martha, Martha, sollicita es, et turbaris erga plurima,
42 But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.
porro unum est necessarium. Maria optimam partem elegit, quae non auferetur ab ea.
