16And he came to Nazareth where he had been raised, and as he was accustomed, he entered the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. 17And the scroll of Isaiah the Prophet was given to him and Yeshua opened the scroll and he found the place where it is written:
18"The Spirit of THE LORD JEHOVAH is upon me, and because of this he has anointed me to preach The Good News to the poor; he has sent me to heal broken hearts and to proclaim liberty to captives, vision to the blind, and to restore the crushed with forgiveness,"
19"And to proclaim the acceptable era of THE LORD JEHOVAH." 20And he rolled up the scroll and he gave it to the minister and he went and sat down, but all who were in the synagogue fixed their eyes upon him. 21And he began to say to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your ears." 22And all of them were testifying to it, and they were amazed at the words of grace that came out of his mouth. And they were saying, "Is not this Yoseph's son?" 23Yeshua said to them, "Doubtless you will say to me this proverb: 'Physician, heal yourself', and 'Everything that we are hearing that you have done in Kapernahum, do also here in your town.'" 24But he said, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is not a Prophet who is received in his town." 25"For truly I say to you that many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah the Prophet, when the heavens were shut for three years and six months, and there was great hunger in all the land." 26"And Elijah was not sent to one of them except to Tsarepta of Tsidon unto a widow woman." 27"And there were many lepers among Israel in the days of Elisha the Prophet and not one of them was purified except Naaman the Syrian*." 28And when they who were in the synagogue heard these things, they were all filled with rage. 29And they arose and they thrust him outside of the city and they brought him unto the ridge of the mountain on which the city was built to cast him from the precipice. 30But he passed through the midst of them and he departed.
31And he went down to Kapernahum, a city of Galilee, and he was teaching them on the Sabbath. 32And they were astonished at his teaching for his message was with authority. 33And there was a man in the synagogue who had spirits of filthy demons in him and he cried with a loud voice 34And he said, "Let us alone! What business do we have with you, Yeshua Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you, who you are, The Holy One of God!" 35And Yeshua rebuked it and he said, "Shut your mouth and come out of him!" And the demon threw him in the midst, and it came out from him, while it did him no harm. 36And great astonishment gripped everyone and they were speaking with one another and they were saying, "What indeed is this message? For with authority and with power he commands the foul spirits, and they come out." 37And a report about him went out into the whole region that was around them.

And he was rebuking them and he was not allowing them to say that they knew that he was The Messiah.
