But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath ; and he said to the crowd, "There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day." The Lord then answered him and said, "Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has boundthink of itfor eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath ?"
