Matthew 10
1Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] called his twelve disciples and gave them power over every unclean Spirit [Ruach] to cast them out from man and to heal every sickness and every plague.
2These are the names of the twelve apostles: Shim’on [he has heard] called Kefa [pebble] and Andrew [of a man] his brother.
3Philip [friend of horses] and Bar- Talmai [abounding in furrows] and Ya’akov [He who grabs onto the heal of] and Yochanan [Yah is gracious] his brother, sons of Zavdai [Yah has bestowed]. T’oma [twin] and Mattityahu [gift of Yah], who by reputation was a lender of money for interest. Ya’akov [He who grabs onto the heal of] Bar-Halfai [son of “changing”] and Y’hudah [Praise].
4Shim’on [he has heard] the Kenani [merchant] and Y’hudah [praised] From K’riot [cities], who after this betrayed him.
5These twelve Yeshua [God is Salvation] sent. He commanded them saying: “To the lands of the Goyim [Gentiles] do not go and do not enter into the cities of the Samaritans”.
6“Go to the sheep who have strayed from the house of Y’sra’el [he who holds onto the heal of God]”.
7“Preach to them that the Kingdom of heaven will be fulfilled”.
8“Heal the sick, restore life to the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons from men. Do not take wages. Freely you have received, freely you shall give”.
9“Do not heap up silver and gold; nor have wealth in your purse”,
10“nor change of clothes, nor shoes, nor a staff in your hand. The workman is worthy to receive enough for his food”.
11“In every city and in every town that you enter ask who is the good man among them and there remain until you go out”.
12“When you enter into the house, give to them a shalom saying: Shalom to this house; shalom to all who dwell in it”.
13“If that house should be worthy, your shalom will come upon it, but if it is not worthy, your shalom will return to you”.
14“If one does not receive you or listen to you, you shall go out from that house and shake off the dust from your feet”.
15“Truly I say unto you, it will be better for Sodom [burnt] and Gomorrah in the judgment day than for that city”.
16“Behold I send you like sheep in the midst of wolves. Be as crafty as serpents and humble as doves”.
17“Beware of men. They will not deliver you up in their congregations and houses of assembly”,
18“but to governors and kings. You will be able bear witness on my behalf to them and to the Goyim [Gentiles]”.
19“When they seize you, do not consider what you will say, because in the hour that you are in need an answer will come to you”.
20“It will not be you who speak, but Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit [Ruach]) of my Father will speak through you”.
21“Brother will deliver up brother to death and a father his son; the sons will rise up against their fathers and lead them unto death”.
22“You will become a ridicule (laughing at enemies’ threats) and a fright to all the nations because of my name. Whoever endures, however, until the time of the end will be saved”.
23Again Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to his disciples: “When they pursue you in this city flee to another; truly I say to you, you will not have completed for yourselves the cities of Y’sra’el [he who holds onto the heal of God] before the Son of Man comes”.
24“No disciple is greater than his Rabbi, nor is the slave greater than his Adon [Lord - Kurios of the earth]”.
25“It is sufficient for the disciple to be like his Rabbi and for the slave to be like his Adon [Lord - Kurios of the earth]. If they call the Adon [Lord - Kurios of the earth] of the house Ba’al-zevuv [Lord - Kurios of the Flies], so much the more the sons of his house”.
26“Do not fear them, because there is nothing which will not be seen, nor hidden which will not be made known”.
27“That which I say to you in the darkness, say it in the light; that which you hear by the ear, tell it in the council place”.
28“Do not fear those who kill bodies, who have no power to kill souls; but fear The One who has power to destroy the soul and body in Gei-Hinnom [hell, valley of evil counsel]”.
29“Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin and not one of them will fall to the earth without the will of your Father Who is in heaven?”
30“Are not all the hairs of your head numbered?”
31“Do not fear, because you are more precious than the sparrows”.
32“He who confesses me before men I will confess before my Father Who is in heaven”.
33“He who denies me before men, I will deny before my father Who is in heaven”.
34In that hour Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to his disciples: “Do not think that I have come to put peace on the earth, but a sword”.
35“I have come to separate mankind, the son from his father and the daughter from her mother”.
36“The enemy is to be loved ones”.
37“He who loves his father and his mother more than me, I am not suitable for him”.
39“He who loves his life will lose it, he who loses it for my sake will find it”.
40“He who receives you, receives me and he who receives me, receives the One Who sent me”.
41“He who receives a prophet in the name of ‘a prophet’, will receive the reward of the prophet; he who receives a righteous one in the name of ‘a righteous one’, will receive the reward of the righteous one”.
42“He who gives a vessel of cold water to one of my little disciples in the name of ‘my disciple’, truly I say to you that he will not lose his reward”.
