and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, a maritime town upon the confines of Zabulon and Nepthalim:

At length he went to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath-days.


and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, a maritime town upon the confines of Zabulon and Nepthalim:


and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, a maritime town upon the confines of Zabulon and Nepthalim: whereby those words of Esaias the prophet, had their full effect, "the land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, lying upon the sea, and about Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles: read more.
the people which sat in darkness, saw a great light: and to those who sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up."

being come to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; according to his custom, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath-day, and standing up to read, they delivered to him the book of the prophet Esaias, and upon opening the book, that passage occurr'd, where it is 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 broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, read more.
to proclaim the favourable year of the Lord." then he closed the book, and returning it to the minister, he sat down: and as the eyes of the whole synagogue were fix'd with attention upon him, he undertook to show them, how the passage they had heard, was actually then accomplished. They all applauded him, and were surprized, that what he said, was delivered with so much grace. but they objected, is not this the son of Joseph? upon which he said, no doubt you will urge me with this proverb, "physician heal thy self. what we have heard you perform'd in Capernaum, do likewise here in your own country." but in truth, added he, no prophet was ever well received in his own country. I assure you, though there were many widows in Israel, when the heaven had furnished no rain for three years and a half, and a great famine spread through all the land: yet to none of them was Elias sent, except to one widow in Sarepta, a city of Sidon. and there were many lepers in the time of Elisha the prophet: yet none of them obtain'd a cure, except Naaman the Syrian. upon hearing this, the whole synagogue were incensed against him. and breaking up the assembly, they drove him out of the city, to the precipice of the hill, upon which it was built, in order to throw him headlong down. but he pass'd thro' the midst of them and went away. At length he went to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath-days.




After this, Jesus having heard that John was confined in prison, retired into Galilee. and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, a maritime town upon the confines of Zabulon and Nepthalim: whereby those words of Esaias the prophet, had their full effect, "the land of Zabulon, read more.
and the land of Nephthalim, lying upon the sea, and about Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles: the people which sat in darkness, saw a great light: and to those who sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up."
