“And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:52 He sent messengers to make ready - A lodging and needful entertainment for him and those with him.
Lu 9:52 Sent messengers. To secure a stopping place for himself and disciples on their journey. Entered into a village of the Samaritans. To go from Galilee to Jerusalem "he must needs go through Samaria" (Joh 4:4), unless he went down on the east of the Jordan. The Samaritans were hereditary enemies of the Jews, and the two peoples had no intercourse.
