A Teaching about the Sabbath
23 One sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.
24And the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?”
25And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him:
26how he entered the house of God, when Abi'athar was high priest, and ate the showbread, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?”
27And he said to them, “The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath;
28so the Son of man is lord even of the sabbath.”
