And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him. And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the DROPSY. And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? ( Luke 14:1-3 )
