  • 1 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem.
  • 2 Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault.
  • 3 Because, the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands often, holding the tradition of the elders.
  • 4 And when they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received to embrace, like the washing of cups, pots, copper vessels, and couches.
  • 5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”
  • 6 He answered and said to them, “Rightly has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites as it is written: ‘This people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
  • 7 Therefore in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’
  • 8 Because laying aside the commandment of God, you embrace the tradition of men, like the washing of pots and cups, and many other such things you do.”
  • 9 And He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.
  • 10 Because, Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’
  • 11 But you claim, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban”’ (that is to say, a gift), then he will be exempt,
  • 12 then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother,
  • 13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”
  • 14 And when He had called all the people to Himself, He said to them, “Hear Me, everyone of you, and understand:
  • 15 There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.
  • 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!”
  • 17 And when He had entered a house away from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.
  • 18 So He said to them, “Are you likewise without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him,
  • 19 because, it does not enter his heart but the stomach, and goes out into the drain, thus purging all foods?”
  • 20 And He said, “That which comes out of a man, that defiles a man.
  • 21 Because, from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
  • 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, perversion, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
  • 23 All these evil things come from within and defile the man.”
  • 24 And from there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered into a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden.
  • 25 Because, a certain woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and came and fell at His feet.
  • 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth, and she begged Him that He would cast the demon out of her daughter.
  • 27 But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, because it is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
  • 28 And she replied and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.”
  • 29 Then He said to her, “Because of this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.”
  • 30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying upon the bed.
  • 31 And again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee.
  • 32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him.
  • 33 And He took him aside from the crowd, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.
  • 34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”
  • 35 And immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.
  • 36 Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it.
  • 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
