NLT 1 One Sabbath day as Jesus was walking through some grainfields, his disciples broke off heads of grain, rubbed off the husks in their hands, and ate the grain. NIV 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. NLT 2 But some Pharisees said, “Why are you breaking the law by harvesting grain on the Sabbath?” NIV 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?" NLT 3 Jesus replied, “Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry? NIV 3 Jesus answered them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? NLT 4 He went into the house of God and broke the law by eating the sacred loaves of bread that only the priests can eat. He also gave some to his companions.” NIV 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." NLT 5 And Jesus added, “The Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath.” NIV 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." NLT 6 On another Sabbath day, a man with a deformed right hand was in the synagogue while Jesus was teaching. NIV 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. NLT 7 The teachers of religious law and the Pharisees watched Jesus closely. If he healed the man’s hand, they planned to accuse him of working on the Sabbath. NIV 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. NLT 8 But Jesus knew their thoughts. He said to the man with the deformed hand, “Come and stand in front of everyone.” So the man came forward. NIV 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. NLT 9 Then Jesus said to his critics, “I have a question for you. Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” NIV 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?" NLT 10 He looked around at them one by one and then said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored! NIV 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.
