Another Sabbath controversy with the Pharisees when the disciples pluck ears of grain in the fields

Mat 12:1-8

1 At that time Jesus went through the fields on the Sabbath day; and his disciples, being in need of food, were taking the heads of grain.
2 But the Pharisees, when they saw it, said to him, See, your disciples do that which it is not right to do on the Sabbath.
3 But he said to them, Have you no knowledge of what David did when he had need of food, and those who were with him?
4 How he went into the house of God and took for food the holy bread which it was not right for him or for those who were with him to take, but only for the priests?
5 Or is it not said in the law, how the Sabbath is broken by the priests in the Temple and they do no wrong?
6 But I say to you that a greater thing than the Temple is here.
7 But if these words had been in your minds, My desire is for mercy and not for offerings, you would not have been judging those who have done no wrong.
8 For the Son of man is lord of the Sabbath.

Mar 2:23-28

23 And it came about that on the Sabbath day he was going through the grain-fields; and while they were walking, his disciples took the heads of grain.
24 And the Pharisees said to him, Why are they doing what it is not right to do on the Sabbath?
25 And he said to them, Have you no knowledge of what David did, when he had need and was without food, he, and those who were with him?
26 How he went into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest, and took for food the holy bread, which only the priests may take, and gave it to those who were with him?
27 And he said to them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath;
28 So that the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.

Luk 6:1-5

1 Now it came about that on the Sabbath he was going through the fields of grain, and his disciples took the heads of the grain for food, crushing them in their hands.
2 But some of the Pharisees said, Why do you do what it is not right to do on the Sabbath?
3 And Jesus said, Have you not seen in the Writings what David did when he was in need of food, he, and those who were with him;
4 How he went into the house of God and took for food the holy bread, which only the priests may take, and gave it to those who were with him?
5 And he said, The Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.
