And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.
Now it happened that He went through the grainfields on the Sabbath; and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain.And the Pharisees said to Him,“ Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”But He said to them,“ Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he and those with him:how he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and also gave some to those who were with him?”And He said to them,“ The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand.So they watched Him closely, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him.And He said to the man who had the withered hand,“ Step forward.”Then He said to them,“ Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they kept silent.And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man,“ Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
Jesus answered and said to them,“ I did one work, and you all marvel.Moses therefore gave you circumcision( not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath?
For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath.
Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her,“ Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.”And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd,“ There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.”The Lord then answered him and said,“ Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it?So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound— think of it— for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.
Now it happened on the second Sabbath after the first that He went through the grainfields. And His disciples plucked the heads of grain and ate them, rubbing them in their hands.And some of the Pharisees said to them,“ Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?”But Jesus answering them said,“ Have you not even read this, what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him:how he went into the house of God, took and ate the showbread, and also gave some to those with him, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat?”And He said to them,“ The Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”Now it happened on another Sabbath, also, that He entered the synagogue and taught. And a man was there whose right hand was withered.So the scribes and Pharisees watched Him closely, whether He would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against Him.But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand,“ Arise and stand here.” And he arose and stood.Then Jesus said to them,“ I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy?”And when He had looked around at them all, He said to the man,“ Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.But they were filled with rage, and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.
At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat.And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him,“ Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”But He said to them,“ Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him:how he entered the house of God and ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests?Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless?Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple.But if you had known what this means,‘ I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”Now when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue.And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying,“ Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”— that they might accuse Him.Then He said to them,“ What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out?Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”Then He said to the man,“ Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.
Now it happened, as He went into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread on the Sabbath, that they watched Him closely.
