Now 1he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
And there was a woman who had had 2a disabling spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not fully straighten herself.
When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, "Woman, you are freed from your disability."13
And he 3laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she 4glorified God.
But 5the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus 6had healed on the Sabbath, said to the people, 7"There are six days in which work ought to be done. Come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day."
Then the Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! 8Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger and lead it away to water it?16And ought not this woman, 9a daughter of Abraham whom 10Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?"17
As he said these things, 11all his adversaries were put to shame, and 12all the people rejoiced at all the glorious things that were done by him.
