“And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:”
King James Version (KJV)
6:8 He commanded them to take nothing for their journey - That they might be always unincumbered, free, ready for motion. Save a staff only - He that had one might take it; but he that had not was not to provide one, #Matt 10:9|. #Lu 9:3|.
Mr 6:8 Save a staff only. Only the staff that each had already. Matthew forbids a supply for future use (Mat 10:9-11).
