The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite

Luke 13:10-17 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus 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: and immediately she was made straight, 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 sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

>The Lord answered and spoke up for the truth.
>Lord, thank you for your forgiveness of our own hypocrisies. Blessed is your name. Thank you for keeping us in your love. Help us to be bold in answering for good and in speaking the truth graciously, in The Anointed One. Help us to be honest about our own faults and honest about your goodness. You are the Lord! You have made us "the righteousness of God by Christ Jesus." To You be all Glory Hallelu Jah Thank you Lord! Amen.
