And they did so413413    John ii. 9.And when the ruler of the company tasted that water which had become wine, and knew not whence it was (but the servants knew, because they filled up the water), the ruler of the company called [31] the bridegroom, 414414    John ii. 10.and said unto him, Every man presenteth first the good wine, and on intoxication he bringeth what is poor; but thou hast kept the good wine until [32] now.  415415    John ii. 11.And this is the first sign416416    Perhaps a comma should be inserted after sign. which Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested [33] his glory; and his disciples believed on him.  417417    Luke iv. 14b.And his fame spread in all the country [34] which was around them.  418418    Luke iv. 15.And he taught in their synagogues, and was glorified [35] by419419    If the text does not contain a misprint the word for by is wanting in both mss.  It should doubtless be restored as in § 7, 3. every man.  420420    Luke iv. 16.And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and entered, according to his custom, into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood [36] up to read.  421421    Luke iv. 17.And he was given the book of Isaiah the prophet.  And Jesus opened the book and found the place where it was written,

And for this anointed he me, to preach good tidings to the poor;

And he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted,

And to proclaim forgiveness to the evil-doers,423423    Evil-doers could easily be an Arabic copyist’s corruption of captives; but the word used here for forgiveness could hardly spring from an Arabic release (in Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, where the thing seems to have happened, a different word is used).  In Syriac, however, they are the same; while the first pair contain the same consonants. and sight to the blind,

And to bring the broken into forgiveness,424424    See preceding note.

[44] 431431    Matt. iv. 18.And while he was walking on the shore of the sea of Galilee, he saw two brethren, Simon who was called Cephas, and Andrew his brother, casting their nets into [45] the sea; for they were fishers.  432432    Matt. iv. 19.And Jesus said unto them, Follow me, and I will [46] make you fishers of men.  433433    Matt. iv. 20.And they immediately left their nets there and followed [47] him.  434434    Matt. iv. 21.And when he went on from thence, he saw other two brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the ship with Zebedee their father, mending [48] their nets; and Jesus called them.  435435    Matt. iv. 22.And they immediately forsook the ship and their father Zebedee, and followed him.
