Luke 6:1-26 Darby’s Translation

The Disciples Pluck Grain on the Sabbath

6 1  And it came to pass on [the] second-first sabbath, that he went through cornfields, and his disciples were plucking the ears and eating [them], rubbing [them] in their hands. 2  But some of the Pharisees said to them, Why do ye what is not lawful to do on the sabbath? 3  And Jesus answering said to them, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did when he hungered, he and those who were with him, 4  how he entered into the house of God and took the shewbread and ate, and gave to those also who were with him, which it is not lawful that [any] eat, unless the priests alone? 5  And he said to them, The Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also.

The Man with a Withered Hand

6  And it came to pass on another sabbath also that he entered into the synagogue and taught; and there was a man there, and his right hand was withered. 7  And the scribes and the Pharisees were watching if he would heal on the sabbath, that they might find something of which to accuse him. 8  But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, Get up, and stand in the midst. And having risen up he stood [there]. 9  Jesus therefore said to them, I will ask you if it is lawful on the sabbath to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy [it]? 10  And having looked around on them all, he said to him, Stretch out thy hand. And he did [so] and his hand was restored as the other. 11  But they were filled with madness, and they spoke together among themselves what they should do to Jesus.

Jesus Chooses the Twelve

12  And it came to pass in those days that he went out into the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. 13  And when it was day he called his disciples, and having chosen out twelve from them, whom also he named apostles: 14  Simon, to whom also he gave the name of Peter, and Andrew his brother, [and] James and John, [and] Philip and Bartholomew, 15  [and] Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of Alphaeus and Simon who was called Zealot, 16  [and] Judas [brother] of James, and Judas Iscariote, who was also [his] betrayer;

Jesus Ministers to a Great Multitude

17  and having descended with them, he stood on a level place, and a crowd of his disciples, and a great multitude of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18  and those that were beset by unclean spirits were healed. 19  And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power went out from him and healed all.

Blessings and Woes

20  And he, lifting up his eyes upon his disciples, said, Blessed [are] ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21  Blessed ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed ye that weep now, for ye shall laugh. 22  Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from them], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as wicked, for the Son of man's sake: 23  rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in the heaven, for after this manner did their fathers act toward the prophets. 24  But woe to you rich, for ye have received your consolation. 25  Woe to you that are filled, for ye shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep. 26  Woe, when all men speak well of you, for after this manner did their fathers to the false prophets.
