1 And a He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand. 2 So they b watched Him closely, whether He would c heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might 1 accuse Him. 3 And He said to the man who had the withered hand, 2 "Step forward." 4 Then He said to them, "Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they kept silent. 5 And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the d hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored 3 as whole as the other. 6 e Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with f the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
