Matthew 10:13-14

10:13 And if the house is worthy, let your peace come on it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 1  10:14 And if anyone will not welcome you or listen to your message, shake the dust off 2  your feet as you leave that house or that town.

Matthew 10:40


10:40 “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. 3 

1 sn The response to these messengers determines how God’s blessing is bestowed – if the messengers are not welcomed, their blessing will return to them. Jesus shows just how important their mission is by this remark.

2 sn To shake the dust off represented shaking off the uncleanness from one’s feet; see Luke 10:11; Acts 13:51; 18:6. It was a sign of rejection.

3 sn The one who sent me refers to God.
