World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now it happened on the second Sabbath after the first, that he was going through the grain fields, and his disciples plucked the heads of grain, and ate, rubbing them in their hands. 1 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat the kernels.
2 But some of the Pharisees said to them, "Why do you do that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath day?" 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
3 Jesus, answering them, said, "Haven't you read this, what David did, when he was hungry, he, and those who were with him; 3 Jesus answered them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 how he entered into the house of God, and took and ate the show bread, and gave also to those who were with him, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests alone?" 4 He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
5 He said to them, "The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath." 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
6 It also happened on another Sabbath that he entered into the synagogue and taught. There was a man there, and his right hand was withered. 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled.
7 The scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against him. 7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath.
8 But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Rise up, and stand in the middle." He arose and stood. 8 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Get up and stand in front of everyone." So he got up and stood there.
9 Then Jesus said to them, "I will ask you something: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good, or to do harm? To save a life, or to kill?" 9 Then Jesus said to them, "I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?"
10 He looked around at them all, and said to him, "Stretch out your hand." He did, and his hand was restored as sound as the other. 10 He looked around at them all, and then said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did so, and his hand was completely restored.

When a flood arose, the stream broke against that house, and could not shake it, because it was founded on the rock. 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
