Mark 2 ©
Christ, followed by multitudes, healeth one sick of the palsy: calleth Matthew from the receipt of custom: justifieth himself for eating with publicans and sinners: excuseth his disciples for not fasting: and vindicateth them for plucking the ears of corn on the sabbath day.
And when they could not come nigh unto him for the *press, fthey uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the *palsy lay.
But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the *palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
And he said unto them, Have ye never read cwhat David did, when he had need, and was *an hungred, he, and they that were with him?
How he went into the house of God in the days of dAbiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, ewhich is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?
Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
