Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue,
and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to accuse Jesus,1 they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"211
He said to them, "If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out?312How much more valuable is a man than a sheep!4 Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."13
Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other.
