A Restatement of the Gospels

97. The Woman with the Spirit of Infirmity

        10Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11And there was a woman who had had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years; she was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. 12And when Jesus saw her, he called her and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your infirmity.” 13And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she was made straight, and she praised God.
        14But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the people, “There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be healed, but not on the Sabbath day.”
        15Then the Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his ass from the manger, and lead it away to water it? 16And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham who has been bound down by evil for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”
        17And as he said this, all his adversaries were put to shame; and all the people rejoiced at all the glorious things that were done by him.
