Isaiah 35:5; Isaiah 49:9; Isaiah 61:1; Hebrews 2:14-15

bThen the eyes of the blind shall be opened,

and the ears of the deaf unstopped;


dsaying to the prisoners, Come out,

to those who are in darkness, Appear.

eThey shall feed along the ways;

on all bare heights shall be their pasture;


The Year of the Lord's Favor

61  sThe Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has tanointed me

to bring good news to the poor;1

he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and uthe opening of the prison to those who are bound;2


14 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise hpartook of the same things, that ithrough death he might jdestroy kthe one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and deliver all those who lthrough fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.
