Ox in the Ditch

Luke 14:1-5

Jesus went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day. And they watched him. And, behold, there was a man before him who had the dropsy.

Jesus (to the lawyers and Pharisees): Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

And they held their peace.

And Jesus took the man, and healed him, and let him go;

Jesus: Which of you shall have an ass or an ox that has fallen into a pit on the sabbath day, and will not immediately pull him out?
