Another time he went into the synagogue,1 and a man with a shriveled hand was there.
Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely2 to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath.3
Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone."
Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained silent.
He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.
Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians4 how they might kill Jesus.5
