Luke 6:1-5

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

1 a  On a Sabbath
Some manuscripts  On the second first Sabbath (that is, on the second Sabbath after the first)
while he was going through the grainfields, his disciples c  plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands.
2But some of the Pharisees said d  Why are you doing e  what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?” 3And Jesus answered them, f  “Have you not read g  what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4how he entered the house of God and took and ate h  the bread of the Presence i  which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those with him?” 5And he said to them, j  “The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”
