A minute or two with a text edit can change it to

\begin{verbatim}
2,    3,    5,   11,   23,   29,   41,   53,   83,   89,  113,  131,
173,  179,  191,  233,  239,  251,  281,  293,  359,  419,  431,  443,
491,  509,  593,  641,  653,  659,  683,  719,  743,  761,  809,  911,
953, 1013, 1019, 1031, 1049, 1103, 1223, 1229, 1289, 1409, 1439, 1451,

3803, 3821, 3851, 3863, 3911, 4019, 4073, 4211, 4271, 4349, 4373, 4391,
4409, 4481, 4733, 4793, 4871, 4919, 4943, 5003, 5039, 5051, 5081, 5171,
5231, 5279, 5303, 5333, 5399, 5441, 5501, 5639, 5711, 5741, 5849, 5903,
6053, 6101, 6113, 6131, 6173, 6263, 6269, 6323, 6329, 6449, 6491, 6521,
6551, 6563, 6581, 6761, 6899, 6983, 7043, 7079, 7103, 7121, 7151, 7193,
7211, 7349, 7433, 7541, 7643, 7649, 7691, 7823, 7841, 7883, 7901, 8069,
8093, 8111, 8243, 8273, 8513, 8663, 8693, 8741, 8951, 8969, 9029, 9059,
9221, 9293, 9371, 9419, 9473, 9479, 9539, 9629, 9689, 9791,...
\end{verbatim}

which aligns quite well.
