Bible: Matthew 12:8-14

12:8 For the Son of Man is lord 1  of the Sabbath.”

12:9 Then 2  Jesus 3  left that place and entered their synagogue. 4  12:10 A 5  man was there who had a withered 6  hand. And they asked Jesus, 7 Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?” 8  so that they could accuse him. 12:11 He said to them, “Would not any one of you, if he had one sheep that fell into a pit on the Sabbath, take hold of it and lift it out? 12:12 How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” 12:13 Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out and it was restored, 9  as healthy as the other. 12:14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted against him, as to how they could assassinate 10  him.
