And He came to 1Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, 2He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and 3stood up to read.
And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
"4THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
5TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."
And He 6closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and 7sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
