1 aOn 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 cplucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands.
2But some of the Pharisees said, dWhy are you doing ewhat is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?” 3And Jesus answered them, f“Have you not read gwhat David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4how he entered the house of God and took and ate hthe bread of the Presence, iwhich 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.”
