16. Healing a Bent-double
Woman on the Sabbath
10 And He was teaching in one of the asynagogues on the Sabbath.
11 And behold, there was a woman who had a 1aspirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was 2bent double and could not stand erect at all.
12 And Jesus, seeing her, called her to Him and said to her, Woman, you are released from your infirmity.
13 And He alaid His hands on her, and instantly she was made erect and began to bglorify God.
14 But the aruler of the synagogue, being 1indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, answered and said to the crowd, There are bsix days in which man should work; therefore, come on them and be healed, and cnot on the Sabbath day.
15 But the Lord answered him and said, 1aHypocrites! Does not each of you on the bSabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger and lead it away and water it?
16 And this woman, being a 1daughter of aAbraham whom 2bSatan has bound, behold, for eighteen years, should she not have been released from this bond on the 3Sabbath day?
17 And when He said these things, all those opposing Him were put to ashame, and all the crowd rejoiced over all the bglorious things that were being done by Him.
