Lord of the Sabbath

6:1 Jesus1 was going through the grain fields on2 a Sabbath,3 and his disciples picked some heads of wheat,4 rubbed them in their hands, and ate them.5 6:2 But some of the Pharisees6 said, “Why are you7 doing what is against the law8 on the Sabbath?” 6:3 Jesus9 answered them,10 “Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry—6:4 how he entered the house of God, took11 and ate the sacred bread,12 which is not lawful13 for any to eat but the priests alone, and14 gave it to his companions?”15 6:5 Then16 he said to them, “The Son of Man is lord17 of the Sabbath.”
