3 Jesus[a] went into the synagogue again, and a man with a paralyzed hand was there. 2 The people[b] watched Jesus[c] closely to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath,[d] intending to accuse him of doing something wrong. 3 He told the man with the paralyzed hand, “Come forward.”[e]4 Then he asked them, “Is it lawful to do good or to do evil on Sabbath days,[f] to save a life or to destroy it?” But they remained silent.
5 Jesus[g] looked around at them in anger, deeply hurt because of their hard hearts. Then he told the man, “Hold out your hand.” The man[h] held it out, and his hand was restored to health. 6 Immediately the Pharisees and Herodians[i] went out and began to plot how to kill him.
6 Once, on another Sabbath, Jesus[a] went into a synagogue and began teaching. A man whose right hand was paralyzed was there. 7 The scribes and the Pharisees were watching Jesus[b] closely to see[c] whether he would heal on the Sabbath, in order to find a way of accusing him of doing something wrong. 8 But Jesus[d] knew what they were thinking. So he told the man with the paralyzed hand, “Get up, and stand in the middle of the synagogue.”[e] So he got up and stood there.
9 Then Jesus asked them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do evil on the Sabbath, to save a life or to destroy it?”
10 He looked around at all of them and then told the man,[f]“Hold out your hand.” The man[g] did so, and his hand was restored to health. 11 The others were furious[h] and began to discuss with each other what they could do to Jesus.
