Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. (8) These were his instructions: "Take nothing for the journey except a staff--no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. (9) Wear sandals but not an extra tunic. (10) Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. (11) And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them." (12) They went out and preached that people should repent. (13) They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
