Don, Jesus was making comparison to Luke 9:3 when He sent them out the 1st time, they were told to take nothing with them & the people welcomed them into their homes & provided for them (the disciples) but now (during & after the crucifixion) they would have to provide for themselves, so take everything you will need with you. Swords were used as protection from wild animals, to cut off limbs of trees for fire & shelter, but also to protect against robbers. You will note that farther in Luke 22 vs 50 &51 He told Peter to put away the sword & He healed the guards severed ear.
