He has sent Me 9to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,

And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is wfulfilled in your hearing.” 22 So all bore witness to Him, and xmarveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, y“Is this not Joseph’s son?”
23 He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in zCapernaum, 2do also here in aYour country.’ ” 24 Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no bprophet is accepted in his own country.
