Now Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, a woman that had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent double and wholly unable to lift herself up. Then Jesus, seeing her, called to her and said, "Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity." And He laid His hands upon her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. But the ruler of the synagogue, being angry because Jesus healed on the Sabbath, said to the congregation, "There are six days in which men ought to work; in them, therefore, come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day." Then the Lord answered him and said, "Hypocrites! Doth not each one of you loose his ox or ass from the stall and lead him away to give him water? And this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, eighteen years, ought she not to be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?" And when He said these things, all those opposing Him were ashamed; and all the multitude rejoiced at all the glorious things that were done by Him.
