Luke 6:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And it was done in the second first sabbath [in the first second sabbath], when he passed by the corns, his disciples plucked ears of corn; and they rubbing with their hands, ate.

And some of the Pharisees said to them, What do ye that, that is not leaveful in the sabbaths?

And Jesus answered, and said to them [And Jesus answering said to them], Have ye not read, what David did, when he hungered, and they that were with him;

how he entered into the house of God, and took loaves of proposition, and ate, and gave to them that were with him; which loaves it was not leaveful to eat, but only to priests[a].

And he said to them, For man's Son is Lord, yea, of the sabbath.

Luke 6:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He defends the disciples that pluck the ears of grain. He heals the man with the withered hand, chooses his twelve apostles, gives a sweet sermon, and teaches to do good for evil.

It happened on an after-Sabbath that Jesus went through the grain field, and his disciples plucked the ears of grain and ate, rubbing them in their hands. And certain of the Pharisees said to them, Why do you do that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days? And Jesus answered them and said, Have you not read what David did when he himself was hungry, and those who were with him? How he went into the house of God, and took and ate the loaves of hallowed bread, and gave also to those who were with him – which bread it was not lawful to eat, but for the priests only? And he said to them, The Son of man is Lord of the Sabbath day.

And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days?

Then Jesus answered them, and said, Have ye not read this, that David did when he himself was an hungered, and they which were with him,

How he went into the house of God, and took, and ate the showbread, and gave also to them which were with him, which was not lawful to eat, but for the Priests only?

And he said unto them, The Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath day.

Footnotes:

  1. Luke 6:1 Christ showeth against the superstitious, who stick in every trifle, that the Law of the very Sabbath, was not given to be kept without exception: much less that the salvation of man should consist in the outward keeping of it.
  2. Luke 6:1 Epiphanius noteth well in his treatise, where he confuteth Ebion, that the time, when the disciples plucked the ears of the corn, was in the feast of unleavened bread: Now, whereas in these feasts which were kept many days together, as the feast of Tabernacles, and the Passover, their first day and their last were of like solemnity, Lev. 23. Luke fitly calleth the last day the second Sabbath, though Theophylact understandeth it of any other of them, that followed the first.

Luke 6:1-5 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands. And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days? And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him; how he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone? And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
