13:10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues 1 on the Sabbath, 13:11 and a woman was there 2 who had been disabled by a spirit 3 for eighteen years. She 4 was bent over and could not straighten herself up completely. 5 13:12 When 6 Jesus saw her, he called her to him 7 and said, “Woman, 8 you are freed 9 from your infirmity.” 10 13:13 Then 11 he placed his hands on her, and immediately 12 she straightened up and praised God. 13:14 But the president of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the crowd, “There are six days on which work 13 should be done! 14 So come 15 and be healed on those days, and not on the Sabbath day.” 13:15 Then the Lord answered him, 16 “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from its stall, 17 and lead it to water? 18 13:16 Then 19 shouldn’t 20 this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan 21 bound for eighteen long 22 years, be released from this imprisonment 23 on the Sabbath day?” 13:17 When 24 he said this all his adversaries were humiliated, 25 but 26 the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things 27 he was doing. 28
[13:11] 2 tn Grk “and behold, a woman.” The Greek word ἰδού (idou) at the beginning of this statement has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).
[13:11] 4 tn Grk “years, and.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.
[13:11] 5 tn Or “and could not straighten herself up at all.” If εἰς τὸ παντελές (ei" to pantele") is understood to modify δυναμένη (dunamenh), the meaning is “she was not able at all to straighten herself up”; but the phrase may be taken with ἀνακύψαι (anakuyai) and understood to mean the same as the adverb παντελῶς (pantelws), with the meaning “she was not able to straighten herself up completely.” See BDAG 754 s.v. παντελής 1 for further discussion. The second option is preferred in the translation because of proximity: The phrase in question follows ἀνακύψαι in the Greek text.
