Mark 2:23Mark 2:28

4. Caring for His Followers' Hunger
Rather than for Religion's Regulation

23 1And He apassed through the grainfields on the bSabbath, and His disciples began to go along, picking the cears of grain.

24 And the 1Pharisees said to Him, Look! Why are they doing on the aSabbath what is bnot lawful?

25 And He said to them, Have you anever read what 1bDavid did when he had need and became hungry, he and those with him;

26 How he entered into the house of God during the time of aAbiathar the high priest and ate the bbread of the presence, which is not lawful for anyone to ceat except the priests, and he gave also to those who were with him?

27 And He said to them, The aSabbath came into being for man, and 1not man for the bSabbath.

28 So then the aSon of Man is 1Lord even of the Sabbath.
