5. Caring for the Relief of the Suffering One
Rather than for the Ritual of Religion
1 1And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a aman there who had a withered hand.
2 And they were awatching Him closely to see if He would heal him on the bSabbath, so that they might caccuse Him.
3 And He said to the man who had the withered hand, Rise and stand in the midst.
4 And He said to them, Is it alawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to 1save 2life or to kill? But they remained silent.
5 And alooking around at them with 1anger and being greatly grieved with the bhardness of their heart, He said to the man, cStretch out your hand. And he stretched it out, and his hand was 2restored.
6 And the 1Pharisees went out and aimmediately took bcounsel with the cHerodians against Him as to how they might ddestroy Him.
