Luke 6:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

They watched (παρετηροῦντο)

Imperfect. They kept watching. See on Mark 3:2.

He would heal (θεραπεύσει)

So Rev. Some authorities, however, read θεραπεύει, "whether he is healing." This may mean either "whether it is his habit to heal," which is far-fetched, or "whether he is actually healing."

Find

Peculiar to Luke, and emphasizing the eagerness of the Pharisees to discover a ground of accusation.
