"Bind up the broken hearted" (IASASQAI TOUS SUNTETRIMMENOUS THN KARDIAN) is a variant
reading not found in Wescot-Hort, Nestle-Aland, and subsequent texts. The words you
mentioned, APOSTEILAI TETRAUSMENOUS EN AFESEI, are ususally correctly translated "to
set at liberty them that are bruised" (KJV); "to set free those who are oppressed"
(NASV), etc. The difference is that the KJV has both expressions.
