Spiritus Domini super me : propter quod unxit me, evangelizare pauperibus misit me, sanare contritos corde,
 To preach deliverance to the captives, and sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of reward.
praedicare captivis remissionem, et caecis visum, dimittere confractos in remissionem, praedicare annum Domini acceptum et diem retributioni.
