Isaiah 58.6

ouci toiauthn nhsteian exelexamhn, legei kurioV:  alla lue tauta sundesmon adikiaV, dialue straggaliaV biaiwn sunallagmattwn, 
apostelle teqrausmenouV en afesei, kai pasan suggrafhn adikon diaspa

New Testament - Luke 4.18

pneuma kuriou ep eme ou eineken ecrisen me euaggelisasqai ptwcoiV, apestalken me, 
khruxai aicmalwtoiV afesin kai tufloiV anableyin, 
aposteilai teqrausmenouV en afesei


I have not chosen such a fast, saith the Lord; but do thou loose every burden of iniquity, do thou untie the knots of hard bargains, set the bruised free, and cancel every unjust account. 

New Testament

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He hath sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised

Masoretic Text

Is not this the fast that I have chosen:  to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Comments:  The NT and the LXX agree.  The MT has “oppressed” instead of  “bruised.”

This quotation from Isaiah 58.6 has been inserted into a lengthy quotation from Isaiah 61.1.
