some that told him of the Gali
leans, whose blood Pilate had mingled

ing, said unto them, “Suppose ye that
e these Galileans were finners above all
" the Galileans, because they suffered
« such things ? I tell you, Nay, but ex--

cept ye repent ye shall all likewise

perish. Or those eighteen, upon « whom the towre in Siloam fell, and “ flew them, think ye that they were

finners above all men that dwelt in « Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay : but except

ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 6. He spake also this parable,

The Cure of a Woman on the Sab

bath-day, which Christ maintains
against the Cavils of the Ruler of
the Synagogue.



ND [Fesus] was teaching in one 10. .

of the Synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a wo- II. man which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift


her self. And when Jefus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman thou art loosed from thine infirmity, And he laid his hands on her, 13. and immediately she was made straight, Miracle: and glorified God. And the ruler of the Synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath-day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work : in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the fab. bath-day. The Lord then answered him, 15. and said, “ Thou hypocrite, doth not “ each one of ye on the Sabbath-day, " loose his ox or his ass from the stall, " and lead him away to watering?

unto shall I resemble it? It is like a “ grain of Mustard seed, which a man

took, and cast into his garden, and " it grew, and waxed a great tree: " and the fowls of the air lodged in « the branches of it. And again he

faid, “ Whereunto shall I liken the
21.“ kingdom of God? It is like leaven,

" which a Woman took and hid in three
« measures of meal, till the whole was
« leavened.
