1 And it came to pass on [the] second-first sabbath, that he went through cornfields, and his disciples were plucking the ears and eating [them], rubbing [them] in their hands.
2 But some of the Pharisees said to them, Why do ye what is not lawful to do on the sabbath?
3 And Jesus answering said to them, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did when he hungered, he and those who were with him,
4 how he entered into the house of God and took the shewbread and ate, and gave to those also who were with him, which it is not lawful that [any] eat, unless the priests alone?
5 And he said to them, The Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also.
6 And it came to pass on another sabbath also that he entered into the synagogue and taught; and there was a man there, and his right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and the Pharisees were watching if he would heal on the sabbath, that they might find something of which to accuse him.
8 But *he* knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, Get up, and stand in the midst. And having risen up he stood [there].
9 Jesus therefore said to them, I will ask you if it is lawful on the sabbath to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy [it]?
10 And having looked around on them all, he said to him, Stretch out thy hand. And he did [so] and his hand was restored as the other.
11 But *they* were filled with madness, and they spoke together among themselves what they should do to Jesus.
