believe that I can do this? They answered, Yes, Master. 29 Then he touched their eyes, saying, Be it unto you 30 according to your faith. Immediately their eyes
were opened. And Jesus strictly charging them, 31 said, 'Take care that nobody know it. But being

And whatever city or village ye enter, inquire what person of worth dwelleth there; and abide 12 with him until ye leave the place. When ye enter 13 the house, salute the family. Ifthe family be worthy,
the peace ye wish them, shall come upon them : if
they be not worthy, it shall rebound upon your14 selves. Wheresoever they will not receive you,
nor regard your words, in departing that house or 15 city, shake the dust off your feet. Verily I say un- Acts, 13;

when they deliver you up, be not anxious how, or

And for my name ye shall be hated universally. But the man
who persevereth to the end, shall be saved. 23 Therefore, when they persecute you in one city,
flee to another, for verily I say unto you, ye shall
not have gone through the cities of Israel, ere the
24 Son of Man be come. A disciple is not above his Jo. 13; 16. & 15; 20. 25 teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is
enough for the disciple to be as his teacher, and for the servant to be as his master. If they have calle ed the master of the house Beelzebub, how much
