6. The King's Identification with the Sent Ones
40 He who 1areceives you receives Me, and he who breceives Me receives Him who has sent Me.
41 He who 1areceives a 2prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who 1receives a 2righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
42 And whoever gives to one of these alittle ones only a bcup of cold water to drink in the name of a disciple, truly I say to you, he shall by no means lose his 1reward.
1 And when Jesus had finished giving instructions to His twelve disciples, He departed from there to ateach and to preach in their cities.
