Luke 4.17-21 (KJV)

And there was delivered
unto him
the book of the prophet Esaias.
And when he had opened the book,
he found the place
where it was written,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he hath anointed me
to preach
the gospel to the poor;
he hath sent me
to heal
the brokenhearted,
to preach
deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight
to the blind,
to set at liberty
them that are bruised,

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

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

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