|Isaiah 42:6-7,29:18,35:5 |
6 "I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you for a covenant to the people, for a light to the Gentiles,1
7 To open the blind eyes, to deliver the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness imprisoned.2 [Until crucified, all men are imprisoned by darkness, with their spiritual eyes blind, stumbling through life like blind men groping the wall.]
18 And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom and darkness.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.1
