Bible: Matthew 12:5-8

12:5 Or have you not read in the law that the priests in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are not guilty? 12:6 I 1  tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 12:7 If 2  you had known what this means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice,’ 3  you would not have condemned the innocent. 12:8 For the Son of Man is lord 4  of the Sabbath.”
