||Then he began to say to them, “On this day, this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
||And everyone gave testimony to him. And they wondered at the words of grace that proceeded from his mouth. And they said, “Is this not the son of Joseph?”
||And he said to them: “Certainly, you will recite to me this saying, ‘Physician, heal yourself.’ The many great things that we have heard were done in Capernaum, do here also in your own country.”
||Then he said: “Amen I say to you, that no prophet is accepted in his own country.
||In truth, I say to you, there were many widows in the days of Elijah in Israel, when the heavens were closed for three years and six months, when a great famine had occurred throughout the entire land.
||And to none of these was Elijah sent, except to Zarephath of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.
||And there were many lepers in Israel under the prophet Elisha. And none of these was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian.”
||And all those in the synagogue, upon hearing these things, were filled with anger.
||And they rose up and drove him beyond the city. And they brought him all the way to the edge of the mount, upon which their city had been built, so that they might thrown him down violently.
||But passing through their midst, he went away.
