Luke 14:1-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 14

Healing of the Man with Dropsy on the Sabbath.[a] On a sabbath he went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully. In front of him there was a man suffering from dropsy.[b] Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking, “Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?” But they kept silent; so he took the man and, after he had healed him, dismissed him. Then he said to them, “Who among you, if your son or ox[c] falls into a cistern, would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?” But they were unable to answer his question.

Conduct of Invited Guests and Hosts.[d]

Footnotes:

  1. 14:1–6 See note on Lk 13:10–17.
  2. 14:2 Dropsy: an abnormal swelling of the body because of the retention and accumulation of fluid.
  3. 14:5 Your son or ox: this is the reading of many of the oldest and most important New Testament manuscripts. Because of the strange collocation of son and ox, some copyists have altered it to “your ass or ox,” on the model of the saying in Lk 13:15.
  4. 14:7–14 The banquet scene found only in Luke provides the opportunity for these teachings of Jesus on humility and presents a setting to display Luke’s interest in Jesus’ attitude toward the rich and the poor (see notes on Lk 4:18; 6:20–26; 12:13–34).
