1This is the account of the descendants of Esau (also known as Edom).
2Esau married two young women from Canaan: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite; and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite.
3He also married his cousin Basemath, who was the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth.
4Adah gave birth to a son named Eliphaz for Esau. Basemath gave birth to a son named Reuel.
5Oholibamah gave birth to sons named Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. All these sons were born to Esau in the land of Canaan.
6Esau took his wives, his children, and his entire household, along with his livestock and cattle—all the wealth he had acquired in the land of Canaan—and moved away from his brother, Jacob.
7There was not enough land to support them both because of all the livestock and possessions they had acquired.
8So Esau (also known as Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.
9This is the account of Esau's descendants, the Edomites, who lived in the hill country of Seir.
10These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, the son of Esau's wife Adah; and Reuel, the son of Esau's wife Basemath.
11The descendants of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
12Timna, the concubine of Esau's son Eliphaz, gave birth to a son named Amalek. These are the descendants of Esau's wife Adah.
13The descendants of Reuel were Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the descendants of Esau's wife Basemath.
14Esau also had sons through Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon. Their names were Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These are the descendants of Esau who became the leaders of various clans:
The descendants of Esau's oldest son, Eliphaz, became the leaders of the clans of Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz,
16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. These are the clan leaders in the land of Edom who descended from Eliphaz. All these were descendants of Esau's wife Adah.
17The descendants of Esau's son Reuel became the leaders of the clans of Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the clan leaders in the land of Edom who descended from Reuel. All these were descendants of Esau's wife Basemath.
18The descendants of Esau and his wife Oholibamah became the leaders of the clans of Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the clan leaders who descended from Esau's wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.
19These are the clans descended from Esau (also known as Edom), identified by their clan leaders.
20These are the names of the tribes that descended from Seir the Horite. They lived in the land of Edom: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These were the Horite clan leaders, the descendants of Seir, who lived in the land of Edom.
22The descendants of Lotan were Hori and Hemam. Lotan
23The descendants of Shobal were Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24The descendants of Zibeon were Aiah and Anah. (This is the Anah who discovered the hot springs in the wilderness while he was grazing his father's donkeys.)
25The descendants of Anah were his son, Dishon, and his daughter, Oholibamah.
26The descendants of Dishon* were Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Keran.
27The descendants of Ezer were Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28The descendants of Dishan were Uz and Aran.
29So these were the leaders of the Horite clans: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. The Horite clans are named after their clan leaders, who lived in the land of Seir.
31These are the kings who ruled in the land of Edom before any king ruled over the Israelites*:
32Bela son of Beor, who ruled in Edom from his city of Dinhabah.
33When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah became king in his place.
34When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites became king in his place.
35When Husham died, Hadad son of Bedad became king in his place and ruled from the city of Avith. He was the one who defeated the Midianites in the land of Moab.
36When Hadad died, Samlah from the city of Masrekah became king in his place.
37When Samlah died, Shaul from the city of Rehoboth-on-the-River became king in his place.
38When Shaul died, Baal-hanan son of Acbor became king in his place.
39When Baal-hanan son of Acbor died, Hadad* became king in his place and ruled from the city of Pau. His wife was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred and granddaughter of Me-zahab.
40These are the names of the leaders of the clans descended from Esau, who lived in the places named for them: Timna, Alvah, Jetheth,
41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon,
42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,
43Magdiel, and Iram. These are the leaders of the clans of Edom, listed according to their settlements in the land they occupied. They all descended from Esau, the ancestor of the Edomites.
1Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil* spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness.
2Here are the names of the twelve apostles:
first, Simon (also called Peter),
then Andrew (Peter's brother),
James (son of Zebedee),
John (James's brother),
Matthew (the tax collector),
James (son of Alphaeus),
4Simon (the zealot*),
Judas Iscariot (who later betrayed him).
5Jesus sent out the twelve apostles with these instructions: "Don't go to the Gentiles or the Samaritans,
6but only to the people of Israel—God's lost sheep.
7Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near.*
8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!
9"Don't take any money in your money belts—no gold, silver, or even copper coins.
10Don't carry a traveler's bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don't hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed.
11"Whenever you enter a city or village, search for a worthy person and stay in his home until you leave town.
12When you enter the home, give it your blessing.
13If it turns out to be a worthy home, let your blessing stand; if it is not, take back the blessing.
14If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave.
15I tell you the truth, the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah will be better off than such a town on the judgment day.
16"Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.
17But beware! For you will be handed over to the courts and will be flogged with whips in the synagogues.
18You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are my followers. But this will be your opportunity to tell the rulers and other unbelievers about me.*
19When you are arrested, don't worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time.
20For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21"A brother will betray his brother to death, a father will betray his own child, and children will rebel against their parents and cause them to be killed.
22And all nations will hate you because you are my followers.* But everyone who endures to the end will be saved.
23When you are persecuted in one town, flee to the next. I tell you the truth, the Son of Man* will return before you have reached all the towns of Israel.
24"Students* are not greater than their teacher, and slaves are not greater than their master.
25Students are to be like their teacher, and slaves are to be like their master. And since I, the master of the household, have been called the prince of demons,* the members of my household will be called by even worse names!
26"But don't be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.
27What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!
28"Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.*
29What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin*? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.
30And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.
31So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
32"Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
33But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.
34"Don't imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.
35`I have come to set a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
36 Your enemies will be right in your own household!'*
37"If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine.
38If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.
39If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
40"Anyone who receives you receives me, and anyone who receives me receives the Father who sent me.
41If you receive a prophet as one who speaks for God,* you will be given the same reward as a prophet. And if you receive righteous people because of their righteousness, you will be given a reward like theirs.
42And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded."
