Luke 4:16-30 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he was nourished, and he entered after his custom in the sabbath day into a synagogue [into the synagogue], and rose to read.

17 And the book of Esaias, the prophet, was taken to him; and as he turned the book, he found a place, where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, for which thing he anointed me; he sent me to preach to poor men, to heal contrite men in heart, and to preach remission to prisoners, and sight to blind men[a], and to deliver broken men into remission;

19 to preach the year of the Lord pleasant, and the day of yielding again [to preach the year of the Lord accepted, or pleasant, and the day of retribution, or yielding again.]

20 And when he had closed the book, he gave [it] again to the minister, and sat; and the eyes of all men in the synagogue were beholding into him.

21 And he began to say to them, For in this day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.

22 And all men gave witnessing to him, and wondered in the words of grace, that came forth of his mouth [that came out of his mouth]. And they said, Whether this is not the son of Joseph?

23 And he said to them, Soothly ye shall say to me this likeness, Physician, heal thyself. The Pharisees said to Jesus, How great things have we heard done in Capernaum, do thou also here in thy country. [And he said to them, Soothly ye shall say to me this likeness, Leech, heal thyself. How great things have we heard done in Capernaum, make thou and here in thy country.]

24 And he said, Truly I say to you, that no prophet is received in his own country. [Soothly he saith, Truly I say to you, for no man prophet is accepted, or received, in his own country.]

25 In truth I say to you, that many widows were in the days of Elias, the prophet, in Israel, when heaven was closed three years and six months, when great hunger was made in all the earth [when great hunger was made on all earth, or every land];

26 and to none of them was Elias sent, but into Sarepta of Sidon, to a woman a widow.

27 And many mesels were in Israel, under Eliseus, the prophet, and none of them was cleansed, but Naaman of Syria.

28 And all in the synagogue hearing these things, were filled with wrath.

29 And they rose up, and drove him out [and cast him out] without the city, and led him to the top of the hill on which their city was builded, to cast him down [that they should cast him down].

30 But Jesus passed, and went through the middle of them; [Soothly Jesus passing went through the middle of them;]

Luke 4:16-30 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

16 And he went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and as his custom was, went into the synagogue on the Sabbath days, and stood up to read. 17 And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the scroll, he found the place where it was written: 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me. To preach the gospel to the poor he has sent me, and to heal the broken-hearted; to preach deliverance to the captive, and sight to the blind, and freely to set at liberty those who are bruised, 19 and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20 And he rolled up the scroll and returned it to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began and said to them, This day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.

22 And they all witnessed him, and wondered at the gracious words that proceeded out of his mouth, and said, Is this not Joseph’s son?

23 And he said to them, You may very well say to me this maxim: Physician, heal thyself; the things that we heard were done in Capernaum, do the same here likewise in your own country.

24 And he said, Truly I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when heaven was shut for three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 but to none of them was Elijah sent save into Sarepta, a city of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and yet none of them was healed except Naaman of Syria.

28 And as many as were in the synagogue, when they heard that, were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and thrust him out of the city, and led him even to the edge of the hill on which their town was built, to cast him down headlong. 30 But he went his way even through the midst of them,

16 [a]And he came to Nazareth where he had been brought up, and (as his custom was) went into the Synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the Prophet Isaiah: and when he had [b]opened the book, he found the place, where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me, that I should preach the Gospel to the poor: he hath sent me, that I should heal the brokenhearted, that I should preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, that I should set at liberty them that are bruised:

19 And that I should preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20 And he closed the book, and gave it again to the minister, and sat down: and the eyes of all that were in the Synagogue were fastened on him.

21 Then he began to say unto them, This day is the Scripture fulfilled in your ears.

22 [c]And all [d]bare him witness, and [e]wondered at the [f]gracious words, which proceeded out of his mouth, and said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

23 Then he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this Proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do it here likewise in thine own country.

24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No Prophet is accepted in his own country.

25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when heaven was shut three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the [g]land:

26 But unto none of them was Elijah sent, save into Zarephath, a city of Sidon, unto a certain widow.

27 Also many lepers were in Israel, in the time of Elisha the Prophet: yet none of them was made clean, saving Naaman the Syrian.

28 [h]Then all that were in the Synagogue, when they heard it, were filled with wrath,

29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the edge of the hill, whereon their city was built, to cast him down headlong.

30 But he passed through the midst of them, and went his way,
