A Man that had a withered Hand, is healed on the Sabbath Day.

Luke vi. 6. Matt. xii. 10. Mark iii. 1.


ND after he was departed thence, he went into their Synagogue, and taught: and [M.] behold, [Mr.] there was a Man which had a WITHERED Hand,


for [L] his right Hand was withered. And the Scribes and Pharifees watched him, whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, that they might find an ACCUSATION against him, [Mr.] that they might accufe him. [M] And they asked him, faying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath Days? that they might accufe him.

Then faid Jefus unto them, I will ask you one Thing, Is it lawful on the Sabbath Days to do Goop, or to do EVIL? to fave LIFE, or to DETROY it? [M] But they held their Peace. And he faid unto them, [M.] What Man fhall there be among you, that fhall have one Sheep, and if it fall into a Pit on the Sabbath Day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a MAN better than a SHEEP? Wherefore it is lawful to DO WELL on the Sabbath Days.

[M] Then faith he to the Man, STRETCH forth thine Hand: [L.] And he did fo, [Mr.] and stretched it forth, and his HAND was RESTORED whole as the other.

[Mr.] And Fefus, moved with COMPASSION, put forth his Hand, and touched him, and faith unto him, I WILL be thou clean. And as foon as he had spoken, immediately the Leprofy departed from him, and he was cleanfed. And he ftraitly charged him to tell no Man, and forthwith fent him away; and faith unto him, See thou fay nothing to any Man, but go thy way, fhew thy felf to the Prieft, and offer for thy cleanfing thofe Things according as Mofes commanded, for a Teftimony unto them. But he


went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the Matter, [Z.] and fo much the more went there a FAME abroad of him : [Mr.] infomuch that Jefus could not openly enter into the City, but was without in Defert Places: And they came to him from every Quarter, [L.] and great Multitudes came together to HEAR, and to be HEALED by him of their INFIRMITIES. And he withdrew himself into the Wilderness, and prayed.
