12 “‘Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. 13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but (A)the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant, or your ox or your donkey or any of your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates, (B)that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 15 (C)You shall remember that you were a slave[a] in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there (D)with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.

  1. Deuteronomy 5:15 Or servant

For what (A)we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with (B)ourselves as your servants[a] for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, (C)“Let light shine out of darkness,” (D)has shone in our hearts to give (E)the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Treasure in Jars of Clay

But we have this treasure in (F)jars of clay, (G)to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are (H)afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but (I)not forsaken; (J)struck down, but not destroyed; 10 (K)always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, (L)so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So (M)death is at work in us, but life in you.

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

23 (A)One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields, and as they made their way, his disciples (B)began to pluck heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees were saying to him, “Look, (C)why are they doing (D)what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 25 And he said to them, (E)“Have you never read (F)what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, in the time of[a] (G)Abiathar the high priest, and ate (H)the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, (I)“The Sabbath was made for man, (J)not man for the Sabbath. 28 So (K)the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

A Man with a Withered Hand

(L)Again (M)he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand. And (N)they watched Jesus,[b] to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse him. And he said to the man with the withered hand, “Come here.” And he said to them, (O)“Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent. And he (P)looked around at them with anger, grieved at (Q)their hardness of heart, and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” (R)He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. (S)The Pharisees went out and immediately (T)held counsel with (U)the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.
