Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
16 (A)And he came to (B)Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And (C)as was his custom, (D)he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up (E)to read. 17 And (F)the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,
18 (G)“The Spirit of the Lord (H)is upon me,

to (I)proclaim good news to the poor.
(J)He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and (K)recovering of sight to the blind,
(L)to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
19 (M)to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
20 And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and (N)sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were (O)fixed on him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today (P)this Scripture (Q)has been fulfilled in your hearing.”Read full chapter
