Bible: Lk 6:6-11
Healing a Withered Hand
6:6 On 1 another Sabbath, Jesus 2 entered the synagogue 3 and was teaching. Now 4 a man was there whose right hand was withered. 5 6:7 The experts in the law 6 and the Pharisees 7 watched 8 Jesus 9 closely to see if 10 he would heal on the Sabbath, 11 so that they could find a reason to accuse him. 6:8 But 12 he knew 13 their thoughts, 14 and said to the man who had the withered hand, “Get up and stand here.” 15 So 16 he rose and stood there. 6:9 Then 17 Jesus said to them, “I ask you, 18 is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath or to do evil, to save a life or to destroy it?” 6:10 After 19 looking around 20 at them all, he said to the man, 21 “Stretch out your hand.” The man 22 did so, and his hand was restored. 23 6:11 But they were filled with mindless rage 24 and began debating with one another what they would do 25 to Jesus.
