A Woman with a Disabling Spirit Healed

10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And behold, a woman [was there]a who had a spirit {that had disabled her}b [for] eighteen years, and she was bent over and not able to straighten herself up completely.c 12 And [when he]d saw her, Jesus summoned [her]e and said to her, "Woman, you are freed from your disability!" 13 And he placed [his]f hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and glorified God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, answered [and]g said to the crowd, "There are six days on which it is necessary to work. Therefore come [and]h be healed on them, and not on the day of the Sabbath!" 15 But the Lord answered and said to him, "Hypocrites! Does not each one of you untie his ox or [his]i donkey from the feeding trough on the Sabbath and lead [it]j away to water [it]?k 16 And this woman, who is a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan bound {eighteen}l long years--is it not necessary that she be released from this bond on the day of the Sabbath?" 17 And [when]m he said these [things], all those who opposed him were humiliated, and the whole crowd was rejoicing at all the splendid things that were being done by him.
