Followers of Tradition

1 The R225 Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered around Him when they had come from R226 Jerusalem, 2 and had seen that some of His disciples were eating their bread with impure R227 hands, that is, unwashed. 3 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they carefully F104 wash their hands, thus observing the traditions R228 of the elders; 4 and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they cleanse F105 themselves; and there are many other things which they have received in order to observe, such as the washing F106 of cups R229 and pitchers and copper pots.) 5 The Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, "Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition R230 of the elders, but eat their bread with impure R231 hands?" 6 And He said to them, "Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: `THIS R232 PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME.



8 "Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition R234 of men."

9 He was also saying to them, "You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition. R235 10 "For Moses said, `HONOR R236 YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER'; and, `HE R237 WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER, IS TO BE F107 PUT TO DEATH'; 11 but you say, `If a man says to his father or his mother, whatever I have that would help you is Corban R238 (that is to say, given F108 to God),' 12 you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother; 13 thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition R239 which you have handed down; and you do many things such as that."

The Heart of Man

14 After He called the crowd to Him again, He began saying to them, "Listen to Me, all of you, and understand: 15 there is nothing outside the man which can defile him if it goes into him; but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man. 16 ["If F109 anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."]

17 When he had left the crowd and entered the R240 house, His R241 disciples questioned Him about the parable. 18 And He said to them, "Are you so lacking in understanding also? Do you not understand that whatever goes into the man from outside cannot defile him, 19 because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach, and is F110 eliminated?" (Thus He declared all R242 foods clean.) R243 20 And He was saying, "That R244 which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. 21 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, F111 thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, R245 F112 slander, pride F113 and foolishness. 23 "All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man."

The Syrophoenician Woman

24 Jesus R246 got up and went away from there to the region of Tyre. R247 F114 And when He had entered a house, He wanted no one to know of it; yet F115 He could not escape notice. 25 But after hearing of Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately came and fell at His feet. 26 Now the woman was a Gentile, F116 of the Syrophoenician race. And she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 And He was saying to her, "Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good F117 to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 28 But she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table feed on the children's crumbs." 29 And He said to her, "Because of this answer F118 go; the demon has gone out of your daughter." 30 And going back to her home, she found the child lying F119 on the bed, the demon having left.

31 Again R248 He went out from the region of Tyre, R249 and came through Sidon to the R250 Sea of Galilee, within the region of Decapolis. R251 32 They brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they implored Him to lay R252 His hand on him. 33 Jesus R253 took him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after spitting, R253 He touched his tongue with the saliva; 34 and looking up to heaven with a deep sigh, R254 He said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!" 35 And his ears were opened, and the impediment F120 of his tongue was F121 removed, and he began speaking plainly. 36 And He R255 gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they continued R256 to proclaim it. 37 They were utterly astonished, saying, "He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."
