Now on the second-first Sabbath while He was passing through the wheatfields, His disciples were plucking the ears and rubbing them with their hands to eat the grain.
And some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what the Law forbids on the Sabbath?"
"Have you never read so much as this," answered Jesus--"what David did when he and his followers were hungry;
how he entered the house of God and took and ate the Presented Loaves and gave some to his followers--loaves which none but the Priests are allowed to eat?"
"The Son of Man," He added, "is Lord of the Sabbath also."
On another Sabbath He had gone to the synagogue and was teaching there; and in the congregation was a man whose right arm was withered.
The Scribes and the Pharisees were on the watch to see whether He would cure him on the Sabbath that they might be able to bring an accusation against Him.
