"5:28He left everything, and rose up and followed him. 5:29Levi made a great feast for him in his house. There was a great crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them. 5:30Their scribes and the Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with the tax collectors and sinners?" 5:31Jesus answered them, "Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick do. 5:32I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
5:33They said to him, "Why do John's disciples often fast and pray, likewise also the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink?"
5:34He said to them, "Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 5:35But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast in those days." 5:36He also told a parable to them. "No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old garment, or else he will tear the new, and also the piece from the new will not match the old. 5:37No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 5:38But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved. 5:39No man having drunk old wine immediately desires new, for he says, 'The old is better.'"
6:1Now it happened on the second Sabbath after the first, that he was going through the grain fields. His disciples plucked the heads of grain, and ate, rubbing them in their hands. 6:2But some of the Pharisees said to them, "Why do you do that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath day?"
6:3Jesus, answering them, said, "Haven't you read what David did when he was hungry, he, and those who were with him; 6:4how he entered into the house of God, and took and ate the show bread, and gave also to those who were with him, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests alone?" 6:5He said to them, "The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath."
6:6It also happened on another Sabbath that he entered into the synagogue and taught. There was a man there, and his right hand was withered. 6:7The scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against him. 6:8But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Rise up, and stand in the middle." He arose and stood. 6:9Then Jesus said to them, "I will ask you something: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good, or to do harm? To save a life, or to kill?" 6:10He looked around at them all, and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did, and his hand was restored as sound as the other. "
