12:1 IN that tyme wēt Iesus ō the sabot day thorow the corn ād his disciples wer āhōgred/ and began to plucke the eares off coorne/ and to eate. IN that tyme went Iesus on the Sabot dayes thorow the corne & his disciples were an hōgred/ & begane to plucke the eares of coorne/ and to eate. AT that tyme Iesus went on the saboth dayes thorow the corne & his disciples were an hongred/ & begane to plucke the eares of corne/ & to eate.

12:2 When the pharises had sene that/ they sayde vnto hī: Behold thy disciples do that which is not lawfull to do apon the saboth day. When ye pharises sawe that/ they sayde vnto him: Beholde/ thy disciples do that which is not lawfull to do apon ye saboth daye. When the Pharises sawe that/ they sayde vnto him: Beholde/ thy disciples do that which is not lawfull to do apon the Saboth daye. When ye Pharises sawe that, they sayde vnto him: Beholde, thy disciples do that, which is not laufull to do vpon the Sabbath.
12:3 He sayde vnto them: Have ye nott reed whatt David did/ when he was anhoungered/ and they alsoo which were with hym? He sayde vnto thē: Haue ye not reed what David did/ whē he was anhoūgered/ & they also which were with him? He sayde vnto them: Haue ye not reed what Dauid dyd/ when he was an houngered/ and they also which were with him? He sayde vnto them: haue ye not red what Dauid did, whan he was hongrie, & they also yt were with him?
12:4 Howe he entred into the housse of God/ and ate the halowed loves/ whiche wer not lawfull ffor hym to eate/ nether ffor them which were with hym: but ōly for the prestes. How he entred into the housse of God/ & ate ye halowed loves/ which were not lawfull/ for him to eate/ nether for thē which were wt him but only for ye prestes. How he entred into the housse of God/ & ate the halowed loues which were not lawfull/ for him to eate nether for them which were with him/ but only for the prestes. How he entred in to the house of God, & ate the shew breds which were not laufull for him to eate, nether for thē yt were with him, but onely for the prestes?
12:5 Or have ye not reed in the lawe/ howe that the prestes in the temple breake the saboth daye and yet are blamlesse? Or have ye not reed in ye lawe/ how that ye prestes in ye temple breake the saboth daye/ & yet are blamlesse? Or have ye not reed in the lawe/ how that the prestes in the temple breake the Saboth daye/ and yet are blamlesse? Or haue ye not red in the lawe how that the prestes in the temple breake the Sabbath, and yet are blamelesse?

Wherfore yf ye had wist what this sayinge meneth: I require mercy/ and not sacrifice: ye wold neuer haue condemned innocentes. But yf ye wyst what this were (I haue pleasure in mercy, and not in offeringe) ye wolde not haue condemned innocentes:
12:8 For the sōne off man is lord even off the saboth daye. For ye sonne of man is lord even of ye saboth daye. For the sonne of man is lord euen of the Saboth daye. For the sonne of man is LORDE euen ouer the Sabbath.

And he sayde vnto thē: whiche of you wolde it be/ yf he had a shepe fallen into a pitte on ye saboth daye/ that wolde not take him & lyft him out? And he sayde vnto them: whiche of you wolde it be/ yf he had a shepe fallen into a pitte on the Saboth daye/ that wolde not take him & lyft him out? But he sayde vnto thē: Which of you is it, yf he had a shepe fallē in to a pytte vpon the Sabbath, that wolde not take him, and lift him out?
12:12 And howe moche ys a man better then a shepe? Wherfore it ys lefull to do a good dede on the saboth daye. And how moche is a man better thē a shepe? Wherfore it is lefull to do a good dede on the saboth dayes. And how moche is a man better then a shepe? Wherfore it is lefull to do a good dede on the saboth dayes.
