Luke 6:8 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 6:8

But he knew their thoughts
Being the omniscient God; though they had said nothing of their intentions, he knew what they designed, should he heal the man with his withered hand, as they expected he would:

and said to the man which had the withered hand, rise up, and stand
forth in the midst.
The Syriac and Persic versions add, "of the synagogue", and which is the true sense; (See Gill on Mark 3:3)

and he arose and stood forth;
he rose up from his seat, and stood up in the midst of the synagogue, and of the people, that he might be seen of all.

Luke 6:8 In-Context

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 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 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 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 then said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so, and his hand was completely restored.
