9 aDeparting from there, He went into their synagogue.

10 And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned 1Jesus, asking, “aIs it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—so that they might accuse Him.

11 And He said to them, aWhat man 1is there among you who 2has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out?

12 aHow much more valuable then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do 1good on the Sabbath.”

13 Then He * said to the man, “Stretch out your hand!” aHe stretched it out, and it was restored to 1normal, like the other.

14 But the Pharisees went out and 1aconspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
