Tradition and Commandment

1 Then R561 some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from R562 Jerusalem and said, 2 "Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do R563 not wash their hands when they eat bread." 3 And He answered and said to them, "Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 "For God said, `HONOR R564 YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER,' and, `HE R565 WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER IS TO BE F343 PUT TO DEATH.' 5 "But you say, `Whoever says to his father or mother, "Whatever I have that would help you has been given F344 to God," 6 he is not to honor his father or his mother.' F345 And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 "You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you:





10 After Jesus called the crowd to Him, He said to them, "Hear and understand. 11 "It R568 is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man."

12 Then the disciples came and said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were offended F346 when they heard this statement?" 13 But He answered and said, "Every R569 plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. 14 "Let them alone; they R570 are blind guides of F347 the blind. And if R571 a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

The Heart of Man

15 Peter said F348 to Him, "Explain R572 the parable to us." 16 Jesus F349 said, "Are you still lacking in understanding also? 17 "Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated? F350 18 "But the R573 things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. 19 "For R574 out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, F351 thefts, false witness, slanders. 20 "These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man."

The Syrophoenician Woman

21 Jesus R575 went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre R576 and Sidon. R576 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son R577 of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed." R578 23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, "Send her away, because she keeps shouting at F352 us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was sent only to the R579 lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and began R580 to F353 bow down before Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 And He answered and said, "It is not good F354 to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 But she said, "Yes, Lord; but F355 even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus said to her, "O woman, your R581 faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed at F356 once.

Healing Crowds

29 Departing R582 from there, Jesus went along by the R583 Sea of Galilee, and having gone up on the mountain, He was sitting there. 30 And large F357 crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He R584 healed them. 31 So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, F358 and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified R585 the God of Israel.

Four Thousand Fed

32 And R586 Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "I R587 feel compassion for the people, F359 because they have F360 remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way." 33 The disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd?" 34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven, and a few small fish." 35 And He directed the people F361 to sit F362 down on the ground; 36 and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and giving R588 thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large baskets R589 full. 38 And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

39 And sending away the crowds, Jesus got into the R590 boat and came to the region of Magadan. R591
