They are not to go to Samaritans or Gentiles
MATTHEW 10
5These twelve Jesus sent out, and commanded them, saying, Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter into any city of the Samaritans: 6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely you have received, freely give. .
LUKE 9
2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick

They are not to take provisions or money.
MATTHEW 10
9Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his food. 11And into what ever city or town you shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go from there. 12And when you come into a house, salute it. 13And if the house is worthy, let your peace come on it: but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you
MARK 6
8And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: 9But to be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. 10And he said to them, In what ever place you enter into a house, there abide till you depart from that place.
LUKE 9
3And he said to them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4And what ever house you enter into, there abide, and from there depart
MATTHEW 10
14And who ever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.
MARK 6
11And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
LUKE 9
5And who ever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
MATTHEW 10
16Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be you therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18And you shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19But when they deliver you up, do not take thought how or what you shall speak: for it shall be given to you in that same hour what you shall speak. 20For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. 21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he who endures to the end shall be saved. 23But when they persecute you in this city, flee into another: for verily I say to you, You shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man is come. 24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25It is enough for the disciple that he is as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call those of his household? 26Do not fear them therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hidden, that shall not be known. 27What I tell you in darkness, speak in light: and what you hear in the ear, that preach on the housetops. 28And do not fear them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31Do not fear therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. 32Who ever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father who is in heaven. 33But who ever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. 34Do not think that I have come to send peace on earth: I did not come to send peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man's foes shall be those of his own household. 37He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38And he who does not take his cross, and follow after me, is not worthy of me.
MATTHEW 10
39He who finds his life shall lose it: and he who loses his life for my sake shall find it.
John 12 [Similar Topic]
25He who loves his life shall lose it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal. 26If any man serves me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serves me, my Father honor will him.

MATTHEW 10
40He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. 41He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. 42And who ever shall give to one of these little ones only a drink of a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, verily I say to you, he shall in no way lose his reward.
