open his mouth and declare my gospel as with the  voice of a trump, both day and night.
22 And I will give unto him strength such as is  not known among men.
23 Require not miracles, except I shall command  you; except casting out devils; healing the sick;  and against poisonous serpents; and against deadly  poisons:
24 And these things ye shall not do, except it be  required of you, by them who desire it, that the  scriptures might be fulfilled, for ye shall do accor ding to that which is written.
25 And in whatsoever place ye shall enter, and  they receive you not, in my name, ye shall leave a  cursing instead of a blessing, by casting off the dust  of your feet against them as a testimony, and clean sing your feet by the wayside.
26 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall  lay their hands upon you by violence, ye shall com mand to be smitten in my name, and behold I will  smite them according to your words, in mine own  due time.
27 And whosoever shall go to law with thee shall  be cursed by the law.
28 And thou shalt take no purse, nor scrip, neither  staves, neither two coats, for the church shall give  unto thee in the very hour what thou needest for  food, and for raiment, and for shoes, and for mon ey, and for scrip:
29 For thou art called to prune my vineyard with  a mighty pruning, yea, even for the last time.
30 Yea, and also, all those whom thou hast or dained.
31 And they shall do even according to this pat tern. Amen. [p. 57]
