Bible: Luke 10:17-24

10:17 Then 1  the seventy-two 2  returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons submit to 3  us in your name! 4  10:18 So 5  he said to them, “I saw 6  Satan fall 7  like lightning 8  from heaven. 10:19 Look, I have given you authority to tread 9  on snakes and scorpions 10  and on the full force of the enemy, 11  and nothing will 12  hurt you. 10:20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice that 13  the spirits submit to you, but rejoice 14  that your names stand written 15  in heaven.”

10:21 On that same occasion 16  Jesus 17  rejoiced 18  in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise 19  you, Father, Lord 20  of heaven and earth, because 21  you have hidden these things from the wise 22  and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. 23  10:22 All things have been given to me by my Father. 24  No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides 25  to reveal him.”

10:23 Then 26  Jesus 27  turned 28  to his 29  disciples and said privately, “Blessed 30  are the eyes that see what you see! 10:24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings longed to see 31  what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
