Rejection at Nazareth
4:16 Now 1 Jesus 2 came to Nazareth, 3 where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue 4 on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. 5 He 6 stood up to read, 7 4:17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He 8 unrolled 9 the scroll and found the place where it was written,
4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed 10 me to proclaim good news 11 to the poor. 12
He has sent me 13 to proclaim release 14 to the captives
and the regaining of sight 15 to the blind,
to set free 16 those who are oppressed, 17
4:19 to proclaim the year 18 of the Lord’s favor.” 19
4:20 Then 20 he rolled up 21 the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on 22 him. 4:21 Then 23 he began to tell them, “Today 24 this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” 25
5:29 He named him Noah, 1 saying, “This one will bring us comfort 2 from our labor and from the painful toil of our hands because of the ground that the Lord has cursed.” 5:30 Lamech lived 595 years after he became the father of Noah, and he had other 3 sons and daughters. 5:31 The entire lifetime of Lamech was 777 years, and then he died.
5:32 After Noah was 500 years old, he 4 became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
7:18 The waters completely overwhelmed 1 the earth, and the ark floated 2 on the surface of the waters. 7:19 The waters completely inundated 3 the earth so that even 4 all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered. 7:20 The waters rose more than twenty feet 5 above the mountains. 6 7:21 And all living things 7 that moved on the earth died, including the birds, domestic animals, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all humankind. 7:22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life 8 in its nostrils died. 7:23 So the Lord 9 destroyed 10 every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, including people, animals, creatures that creep along the ground, and birds of the sky. 11 They were wiped off the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark survived. 12
