4 Revised Standard Version Passage

16And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; and he went to the synagogue, as his custom was, on the sabbath day. And he stood up to read;The Rejection of Jesus at Nazareth Lk.4.16-30 (Nazareth) | Mt.13.53-58 | Mk.6.1-6
17and there was given to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened the book and found the place where it was written, 
18"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
- The Spirit of the Lord is upon me Lk.4.18 | Is.61.1-2 | Is.58.6
19to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."- to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Lk.4.19 | Lv.25.10
20And he closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 
21And he began to say to them, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing." 
22And all spoke well of him, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth; and they said, "Is not this Joseph's son?" 
23And he said to them, "Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, 'Physician, heal yourself; what we have heard you did at Caper'na-um, do here also in your own country.'" 
24And he said, "Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country. 
25But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Eli'jah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine over all the land; 
26and Eli'jah was sent to none of them but only to Zar'ephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 
27And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Eli'sha; and none of them was cleansed, but only Na'aman the Syrian." 
28When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. 
29And they rose up and put him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. 
30But passing through the midst of them he went away.
