MEVModern English Version
22#Jn 6:42; Ps 45:2All bore witness to Him, and wondered at the gracious words which came from His mouth. Then they said, “Is this not Joseph’s son?”
23#Mt 4:13; Mk 6:1He said to them, “You will surely say to Me this proverb, ‘Physician, heal Yourself. Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’ ”
24#Mt 13:57; Jn 4:44He also said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. 25#1Ki 17:1; Jas 5:17But I tell you truthfully, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were closed for three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land. 26Yet to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, a city of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet. But none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”
28All those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath. 29#Nu 15:35They rose up and thrust 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. 30#Jn 10:39; 8:59But passing through the midst of them, He went His way.
