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.
But some of the Pharisees said to them, Why do ye what is not lawful to do on the sabbath?
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,
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?
And he said to them, The Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also.
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.
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.
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].
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]?
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.
But *they* were filled with madness, and they spoke together among themselves what they should do to Jesus.
