New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 One Sabbath day Jesus was walking through the grainfields. His disciples began to break off some heads of grain. They rubbed them in their hands and ate them. 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 Some of the Pharisees said, "It is against the Law to do this on the Sabbath. Why are you doing it?" 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
3 Jesus answered them, "Haven't you ever read about what David did? He and his men were hungry. 3 Jesus answered them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 He entered the house of God and took the holy bread. He ate the bread that only priests were allowed to eat. David also gave some to his men." 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 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath day." 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
6 On another Sabbath day, Jesus went into the synagogue and was teaching. A man whose right hand was weak and twisted was there. 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled.
7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were trying to find fault with Jesus. So they watched him closely. They wanted to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. 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 Jesus knew what they were thinking. He spoke to the man who had the weak and twisted hand. "Get up and stand in front of everyone," he said. So the man got up and stood there. 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, "What does the Law say we should do on the Sabbath day? Should we do good? Or should we do evil? Should we save life? Or should we destroy it?" 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 all of them. Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did, and his hand was as good as new. 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.
11 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law were very angry. They began to talk to each other about what they might do to Jesus. 11 But they were furious and began to discuss with one another what they might do to Jesus.
