Jesus Heals a Crippled Woman - Luke 13:10-17

10 Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath day. 11 There was a woman there who had been suffering for 18 years, bent over and unable to straighten up. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called to her and said, "Woman, you are freed from your sickness!" 13 He laid his hands on her, and she stood up straight immediately and praised God.

14 The leader of the synagogue, angry because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, shouted to the people there, "There are only six days on which people should work. Come on one of those days to be healed, not on the Sabbath day!"

15 The Lord replied to him, "Don't be a hypocrite! Don't you all take your ox or donkey, which you use for work, out of their stalls and lead them to drink on the Sabbath? 16 Why should this Jewish woman, who has been in hell for 18 years, not be freed from her sickness on a Sabbath day?"

17 When Jesus spoke, those who had criticised him were ashamed, and the people rejoiced because of the amazing things that Jesus was doing.
