Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 One Shabbat, while Yeshua was passing through some wheat fields, his talmidim began plucking the heads of grain, rubbing them between their hands and eating the seeds. 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 P'rushim said, "Why are you violating Shabbat?" 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
3 Yeshua answered them, "Haven't you ever read what David did when he and his companions 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 and ate the Bread of the Presence" -- which no one is permitted to eat but the cohanim. 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 "The Son of Man," he concluded, "is Lord of Shabbat." 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
6 On another Shabbat, when Yeshua had gone into the synagogue and was teaching, a man was there who had a shriveled hand. 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled.
