LUK 9:15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
LUK 9:16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.
LUK 9:17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

LUK 9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
LUK 9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

LUK 9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
LUK 9:34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
LUK 9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

LUK 9:39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.
LUK 9:40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.
LUK 9:41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

LUK 9:44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.
LUK 9:45 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
LUK 9:46 # Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
LUK 9:47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,
LUK 9:48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
LUK 9:49 # And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

LUK 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
LUK 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save [them]. And they went to another village.
LUK 9:57 # And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain [man] said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
LUK 9:58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay [his] head.
LUK 9:59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
LUK 9:60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
LUK 9:61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

LUK 10:3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
LUK 10:4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
LUK 10:5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace [be] to this house.
LUK 10:6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
LUK 10:7 And in the 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.
LUK 10:8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
LUK 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
LUK 10:10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
LUK 10:11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
LUK 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
LUK 10:13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
LUK 10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.
LUK 10:15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.
LUK 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
LUK 10:17 # And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
LUK 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
LUK 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
LUK 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
LUK 10:21 # In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

LUK 10:23 # And he turned him unto [his] disciples, and said privately, Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things that ye see:
