    Definitions for Matthew 12:10

    Sabbath - A rest; cessation from work.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 12:10

    A man which had his hand withered - Probably through a partial paralysis. The man's hand was withered; but God's mercy had still preserved to him the use of his feet: He uses them to bring him to the public worship of God, and Jesus meets and heals him there. How true is the proverb - It is never so ill with us, but it might be much worse!

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 12:10

    The very hairs of your head are all numbered - That is, each one has exercised the care and attention of God.

    He has fixed the number; and, though of small importance, yet he does not think it beneath him to determine how few or how many they shall be. He will therefore take care of you.
