5
Hos duodecim misit Jesus, præcipiens eis, dicens: In viam gentium ne abieritis, et in civitates Samaritanorum ne intraveritis:
5
These twelve Jesus sent: commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not.
5
These twelve Jesus sent out; but first gave them their instructions; Do not go, he said, into the walks of the Gentiles, or enter any city of Samaria;
6
sed potius ite ad oves quæ perierunt domus Israël.
6
But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
6
go rather to the lost sheep that belong to the house of Israel.
7
Euntes autem prædicate, dicentes: Quia appropinquavit regnum cælorum.
7
And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
7
And preach as you go, telling them, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8
Infirmos curate, mortuos suscitate, leprosos mundate, dæmones ejicite: gratis accepistis, gratis date.
8
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give.
8
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: give as you have received the gift, without payment.
9
Nolite possidere aurum, neque argentum, neque pecuniam in zonis vestris:
9
Do not possess gold, nor silver, nor money in your purses:
9
Do not provide gold or silver or copper to fill your purses,
10
non peram in via, neque duas tunicas, neque calceamenta, neque virgam: dignus enim est operarius cibo suo.
10
Nor scrip for your journey, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor a staff; for the workman is worthy of his meat.
10
nor a wallet for the journey, no second coat, no spare shoes or staff; the labourer has a right to his maintenance.
11
In quamcumque autem civitatem aut castellum intraveritis, interrogate, quis in ea dignus sit: et ibi manete donec exeatis.
11
And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till you go thence.
11
Whenever you enter a city or a village, find out who is worthy to be your host, and make your lodging there until you go away.
12
Intrantes autem in domum, salutate eam, dicentes: Pax huic domui.
12
And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house.
12
When you enter this house, you are to wish it well;
13
Et siquidem fuerit domus illa digna, veniet pax vestra super eam: si autem non fuerit digna, pax vestra revertetur ad vos.
13
And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you.
13
and so, if the house is worthy, your good wishes shall come down upon it; if unworthy, let them come back to you the way they went.
14
Et quicumque non receperit vos, neque audierit sermones vestros: exeuntes foras de domo, vel civitate, excutite pulverem de pedibus vestris.
14
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet.
14
And wherever they will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet as you leave that city or that house;
15
Amen dico vobis: Tolerabilius erit terræ Sodomorum et Gomorrhæorum in die judicii, quam illi civitati.
15
Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
15
I promise you, it shall go less hard with the land of Sodom and Gomorrha at the day of judgement, than with that city.
16
Ecce ego mitto vos sicut oves in medio luporum. Estote ergo prudentes sicut serpentes, et simplices sicut columbæ.
16
Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves.
16
Remember, I am sending you out to be like sheep among wolves; you must be wary, then, as serpents, and yet innocent as doves.
17
Cavete autem ab hominibus. Tradent enim vos in conciliis, et in synagogis suis flagellabunt vos:
17
But beware of men. For they will deliver you up in councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues.
17
Do not put your trust in men; they will hand you over to courts of judgement, and scourge you in their synagogues;
18
et ad præsides, et ad reges ducemini propter me in testimonium illis, et gentibus.
18
And you shall be brought before governors, and before kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles:
18
yes, and you will be brought before governors and kings on my account, so that you can bear witness before them, and before the Gentiles.
19
Cum autem tradent vos, nolite cogitare quomodo, aut quid loquamini: dabitur enim vobis in illa hora, quid loquamini:
19
But when they shall deliver you up, take no thought how or what to speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak.
19
Only, when they hand you over thus, do not consider anxiously what you are to say or how you are to say it; words will be given you when the time comes;
20
non enim vos estis qui loquimini, sed Spiritus Patris vestri, qui loquitur in vobis.
20
For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.
20
it is not you who speak, it is the Spirit of your Father that speaks in you.
21
Tradet autem frater fratrem in mortem, et pater filium: et insurgent filii in parentes, et morte eos afficient:
21
The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and shall put them to death.
21
Brothers will be given up to execution by their brothers, and children by their fathers; children will rise up against their parents and will compass their deaths,
22
et eritis odio omnibus propter nomen meum: qui autem perseveraverit usque in finem, hic salvus erit.
22
And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved.
22
and you will be hated by all men because you bear my name; that man will be saved, who endures to the last.
23
Cum autem persequentur vos in civitate ista, fugite in aliam. Amen dico vobis, non consummabitis civitates Israël, donec veniat Filius hominis.
23
And when they shall persecute you in this city, flee into another. Amen I say to you, you shall not finish all the cities of Israel, till the Son of man come.
23
Only, if they persecute you in one city, take refuge in another; I promise you, the Son of Man will come, before your task with the cities of Israel is ended.
24
Non est discipulus super magistrum, nec servus super dominum suum:
24
The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord.
24
A disciple is no better than his master, a servant than his lord;
25
sufficit discipulo ut sit sicut magister ejus, et servo, sicut dominus ejus. Si patremfamilias Beelzebub vocaverunt, quanto magis domesticos ejus?
25
It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the goodman of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household?
25
enough that the disciple should fare like his master, the servant like his lord. If they have cried Beelzebub at the master of the house, they will do it much more readily to the men of his household.
26
Ne ergo timueritis eos. Nihil enim est opertum, quod non revelabitur: et occultum, quod non scietur.
26
Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known.
26
Do not, then, be afraid of them. What is veiled will all be revealed, what is hidden will all be known;
27
Quod dico vobis in tenebris, dicite in lumine: et quod in aure auditis, prædicate super tecta.
27
That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops.
27
what I have said to you under cover of darkness, you are to utter in the light of day; what has been whispered in your ears, you are to proclaim on the house-tops.
28
Et nolite timere eos qui occidunt corpus, animam autem non possunt occidere: sed potius timete eum, qui potest et animam et corpus perdere in gehennam.
28
And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell.
28
And there is no need to fear those who kill the body, but have no means of killing the soul; fear him more, who has the power to ruin body and soul in hell.
29
Nonne duo passeres asse veneunt? et unus ex illis non cadet super terram sine Patre vestro.
29
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father.
29
Are not sparrows sold two for a penny? And yet it is impossible for one of them to fall to the ground without your heavenly Father’s will.
30
Vestri autem capilli capitis omnes numerati sunt.
30
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
30
And as for you, he takes every hair of your head into his reckoning.
31
Nolite ergo timere: multis passeribus meliores estis vos.
31
Fear not therefore: better are you than many sparrows.
31
Do not be afraid, then; you count for more than a host of sparrows.
32
Omnis ergo qui confitebitur me coram hominibus, confitebor et ego eum coram Patre meo, qui in cælis est.
32
Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven.
32
And now, whoever acknowledges me before men, I too will acknowledge him before my Father who is in heaven;
33
Qui autem negaverit me coram hominibus, negabo et ego eum coram Patre meo, qui in cælis est.
33
But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.
33
and whoever disowns me before men, before my Father in heaven I too will disown him.
34
Nolite arbitrari quia pacem venerim mittere in terram: non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium:
34
Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.
34
Do not imagine that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have come to bring a sword, not peace.
35
veni enim separare hominem adversus patrem suum, et filiam adversus matrem suam, et nurum adversus socrum suam:
35
For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
35
I have come to set a man at variance with his father, and the daughter with her mother, and the daughter-in-law with her mother-in-law;
36
et inimici hominis, domestici ejus.
36
And a man’s enemies shall be they of his own household.
36
a man’s enemies will be the people of his own house.
37
Qui amat patrem aut matrem plus quam me, non est me dignus: et qui amat filium aut filiam super me, non est me dignus.
37
He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me.
37
He is not worthy of me, that loves father or mother more; he is not worthy of me, that loves son or daughter more;
38
Et qui non accipit crucem suam, et sequitur me, non est me dignus.
38
And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me.
38
he is not worthy of me, that does not take up his cross and follow me.
39
Qui invenit animam suam, perdet illam: et qui perdiderit animam suam propter me, inveniet eam.
39
He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it.
39
He who secures his own life will lose it; it is the man who loses his life for my sake that will secure it.
40
Qui recipit vos, me recipit: et qui me recipit, recipit eum qui me misit.
40
He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.
40
He who gives you welcome, gives me welcome too; and he who gives me welcome gives welcome to him that sent me.
41
Qui recipit prophetam in nomine prophetæ, mercedem prophetæ accipiet: et qui recipit justum in nomine justi, mercedem justi accipiet.
41
He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man.
41
He who gives a prophet the welcome due to a prophet shall receive the reward given to prophets; and he who gives a just man the welcome due to a just man shall receive the reward given to just men.
42
Et quicumque potum dederit uni ex minimis istis calicem aquæ frigidæ tantum in nomine discipuli: amen dico vobis, non perdet mercedem suam.
42
And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
42
And if a man gives so much as a draught of cold water to one of the least of these here, because he is a disciple of mine, I promise you, he shall not miss his reward.
