Heb 10:11-18

11* Every priest stands daily at his ministry, offering frequently those same sacrifices that can never take away sins.h 12But this one offered one sacrifice for sins, and took his seat forever at the right hand of God;i 13* now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool. 14For by one offering he has made perfect forever those who are being consecrated.j 15* The holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying:

16“This is the covenant I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord:

‘I will put my laws in their hearts,

and I will write them upon their minds,’”k

17he also says:*

“Their sins and their evildoing

I will remember no more.”l

18Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer offering for sin.

Mk 2:23-28

The Disciples and the Sabbath.* 23As he was passing through a field of grain on the sabbath, his disciples began to make a path while picking the heads of grain.f 24At this the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?”g 25He said to them, “Have you never read what David did* when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry? 26How he went into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest and ate the bread of offering that only the priests could lawfully eat, and shared it with his companions?”h 27Then he said to them, “The sabbath was made for man,* not man for the sabbath.i 28* That is why the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath.”
