040:015:001
Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees,
which were of Jerusalem,
saying,


040:015:002
Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders?
for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.


040:015:003
But he answered and said unto them,
Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?


040:015:004
For God commanded,
saying,
Honour thy father and mother:
and,
He that curseth father or mother,
let him die the death.


040:015:005
But ye say,
Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother,
It is a gift,
by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;


040:015:006
And honour not his father or his mother,
he shall be free.
Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.


040:015:007
Ye hypocrites,
well did Esaias prophesy of you,
saying,


040:015:008
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.


040:015:009
But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


040:015:010
And he called the multitude,
and said unto them,
Hear,
and understand:


040:015:011
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man;
but that which cometh out of the mouth,
this defileth a man.


040:015:012
Then came his disciples,
and said unto him,
Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended,
after they heard this saying?


040:015:013
But he answered and said,
Every plant,
which my heavenly Father hath not planted,
shall be rooted up.


040:015:014
Let them alone:
they be blind leaders of the blind.
And if the blind lead the blind,
both shall fall into the ditch.


040:015:015
Then answered Peter and said unto him,
Declare unto us this parable.


040:015:016
And Jesus said,
Are ye also yet without understanding?


040:015:017
Do not ye yet understand,
that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly,
and is cast out into the draught?


040:015:018
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart;
and they defile the man.


040:015:019
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts,
murders,
adulteries,
fornications,
thefts,
false witness,
blasphemies:


040:015:020
These are the things which defile a man:
but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.


040:015:021
Then Jesus went thence,
and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.


040:015:022
And,
behold,
a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts,
and cried unto him,
saying,
Have mercy on me,
O Lord,
thou son of David;
my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.


040:015:023
But he answered her not a word.
And his disciples came and besought him,
saying,
Send her away;
for she crieth after us.


040:015:024
But he answered and said,
I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.


040:015:025
Then came she and worshipped him,
saying,
Lord,
help me.


040:015:026
But he answered and said,
It is not meet to take the children's bread,
and to cast it to dogs.


040:015:027
And she said,
Truth,
Lord:
yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.


040:015:028
Then Jesus answered and said unto her,
O woman,
great is thy faith:
be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.


040:015:029
And Jesus departed from thence,
and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee;
and went up into a mountain,
and sat down there.


040:015:030
And great multitudes came unto him,
having with them those that were lame,
blind,
dumb,
maimed,
and many others,
and cast them down at Jesus' feet;
and he healed them:


040:015:031
Insomuch that the multitude wondered,
when they saw the dumb to speak,
the maimed to be whole,
the lame to walk,
and the blind to see:
and they glorified the God of Israel.


040:015:032
Then Jesus called his disciples unto him,
and said,
I have compassion on the multitude,
because they continue with me now three days,
and have nothing to eat:
and I will not send them away fasting,
lest they faint in the way.


040:015:033
And his disciples say unto him,
Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness,
as to fill so great a multitude?


040:015:034
And Jesus saith unto them,
How many loaves have ye?
And they said,
Seven,
and a few little fishes.


040:015:035
And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.


040:015:036
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes,
and gave thanks,
and brake them,
and gave to his disciples,
and the disciples to the multitude.


040:015:037
And they did all eat,
and were filled:
and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.


040:015:038
And they that did eat were four thousand men,
beside women and children.


040:015:039
And he sent away the multitude,
and took ship,
and came into the coasts of Magdala.
