    Barnes' Notes on Luke 13:15

    Thou hypocrite! - You condemn "me" for an action, and yet you perform one exactly similar. You condemn "me" for doing to a woman what you do to a beast. To her I have done good on the Sabbath; you provide for your cattle, and yet blame me for working a miracle to relieve a sufferer on that day.

    Stall - A place where cattle are kept to be fed, and sheltered from the weather.
