Mark 2:23-28 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

23 And it was done again, when the Lord walked in the sabbaths by the corns, and his disciples began to pass forth [and his disciples began to go forth], and [to] pluck ears of the corn.

24 And the Pharisees said to him, Lo! what thy disciples do in the sabbaths, that is not leaveful [Lo! what do thy disciples in sabbaths, the thing that is not leaveful(?)].

25 And he said to them, Read ye never what David did, when he had need, and he hungered, and they that were with him?

26 How he went into the house of God, under Abiathar, prince of priests, and ate loaves of proposition [and ate loaves of proposition, either of setting forth], which it was not leaveful to eat, but to priests alone, and he gave to them that were with him.

27 And he said to them, The sabbath is made for man, and not man for the sabbath;

28 and so man's Son is Lord also of the sabbath.

Mark 2:23-28 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

23 And it chanced that he was walking through the grain fields in the Sabbath days, and his disciples, as they went their way, began to pluck the ears of grain. 24 And the Pharisees said to him, Look, why are they doing on the Sabbath days that which is not lawful?

25 And he said to them, Have you never read what David did when he had need and was hungry, both he and those who were with him? 26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest and did eat the hallowed loaves, which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests only, and gave also to those who were with him?

27 And he said to them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.

23 [a]And it came to pass as he went through the corn on the [b]Sabbath day, that his disciples, as they went on their way, began to pluck the ears of corn.

24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the Sabbath day, that which is not lawful?

25 And he said to them, Have ye never read what David did when he had need, and was an hungered, both he, and they that were with him?

26 How he went into the house of God, in the days of [c]Abiathar the high Priest, and did eat the Showbread, which were not lawful to eat, but for the Priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

27 And he said to them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.

28 Wherefore the Son of man is Lord, even of the [d]Sabbath.
