9:35-38

35 And Jesus went about all the cities and the avillages, bteaching in their synagogues and preaching the 1gospel of the kingdom and healing 2every disease and every sickness.

36 And seeing the crowds, He was moved with acompassion for them, because they were 1harassed and cast away like 2bsheep not having a 2shepherd.

37 Then He said to His disciples, The 1aharvest is great, but the workers few;

38 Therefore 1beseech the 2Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out aworkers 3into His harvest.
