- 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." 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."
