    and saved him out of all his troubles.

    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed.
  • If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
  • Because I delivered the poor who cried for help,
    and the fatherless who had none to help him.
    The blessing of him who was about to perish came upon me,
    and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
  • The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to bring good news to the poor;
    he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
  • Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand;
    forget not the afflicted.
