Who have you released from the darkness?

אני יהוה קראתיך בצדק
ואחזק בידך
ואצרך ואתנך
לברית עם לאור גוים
לפקח עינים עורות
להוציא ממסגר אסיר
מבית כלא ישבי חשך

ישעיה מב ו-ז


"I the Lord, in My grace, have summoned you
And I have grasped you by the hand.
I created you, and appointed you
A covenant people, a light to the nations--
Opening eyes deprived of light,
Rescuing prisoners from confinement,
From the dungeons those who sit in darkness."
- Isaiah 42.6-7

Who's eyes have you opened, who have you released from the darkness?
