Luke 8:40-48 (Contemporary American Version)

But as he went the people thronged him.

And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

And Jesus said, “Who taxed me?”

When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, “Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who taxed me?”

And Jesus said, “Somebody hath taxed me: for I perceive that mine religious liberty hath been threatened.”

And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

And he said unto her, “Unclean slut, get thee hence, for thine womanly impurity hath constrained my religious liberty.”
