25But He said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he and those with him:
26how he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and also gave some to those who were with him?"
27And He said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.
