418-419 :  The Parable Of The unmerciful Servant,Seventy More Disciples Are Appointed

THEN Peter came to him and said,
 o'Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? up to seven times?"
Jesus said to him, "I say to you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.
"Thus the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who had a servant that owed him ten thousand talents.
Because he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold,
and his wife and children and all that he had, and payment be made.
The servant therefore fell down and worshipped him, saying, 'Lord, have patience with me,
and I will pay you all.'
Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion and freed him and forgave him the debt.
"But the same servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred pence,
 and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, 'pay me what You owe.'
 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying,
'Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.'
 And he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
"So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry,
and came and told to their lord all that was done.
"Then his lord, after calling him forth,said to him,
 'O wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt, because you begged me.
 Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had pity on you?'
 And his lord was angered and delivered him to the torturers, till he should pay all that was due to him.
 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also to you,
 if you do not forgive from your hearts your brothers' trespasses."

It came to pass that when Jesus had finished these sayings,
 he departed from Galilee and came into the coasts of Judea beyond the Jordan.
 And great multitudes followed him, and he healed them there.
As he went along the road, a certain man said to him, "Lord I will follow you wherever you go."
 Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests,
 but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head."
He said to another, "Follow me." But the man said, "Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father." Jesus
said to him, "Let the dead bury their dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God."
And another said, "Lord, I will follow you, but let me first go bid them farewell who are at my home."
And Jesus said to him, "No man, having put his hand to the plough,
who looks back, is fit for the kingdom of God."


After these things,  Jesus appointed seventy more disciples ,
and sent them two by two ahead of him into every city and place where he himself would come.
And he said to them:
"The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few.
 Pray, therefore, to the Lord of the harvest, to send forth labourers into his harvest.
"Go your ways. Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
 Carry neither purse, nor money, nor shoes, and salute no man along the way.
 And into whatever house you enter, first say,
'Peace be to this house.' "And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give,
for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Do not go from house to house.
"Into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you,
 and heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God is near.'
 But whatever city you enter that receives you not,
go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
 'Even the very dust of your city, which clings to us, we wipe off against you.
 Nevertheless, be sure of this, that the kingdom of God is near.'
But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.
"He that hears you, hears me, and he that despises you, despises me,
and he that despises me, despises him that sent me."
