And Jesus answering said to them, “Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but those who are sick do. Bible other translations

“healthy.” The Greek word is hugiainō (#5198 ὑγιαίνω), a more technical and accurate word for being healthy than the word ischuō (#2480 ἰσχύω), which means “strong” but can mean “well” or “healthy” in some contexts. It is possible that Luke, being a doctor was more sensitive to the precise meaning of words used for sickness and health.
