3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read dwhat David did, when he was an hungred, and ethey that were with him; 4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat fthe shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, gbut only for the priests? 5 Or have ye not read hin the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? 6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one igreater than the temple. 7 But if ye had known kwhat this meaneth, lI will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
