THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

12:1At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.

12:2But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

12:3But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

12:4How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

12:5Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

12:6But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

12:7But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

12:8For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Mark (Author John Mark)

2:24And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

2:25And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

2:26How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

2:27And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

2:28Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
