041:007:001
Then came together unto him the Pharisees,
and certain of the scribes,
which came from Jerusalem.


041:007:002
And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled,
that is to say,
with unwashen,
hands,
they found fault.


041:007:003
For the Pharisees,
and all the Jews,
except they wash their hands oft,
eat not,
holding the tradition of the elders.


041:007:004
And when they come from the market,
except they wash,
they eat not.
And many other things there be,
which they have received to hold,
as the washing of cups,
and pots,
brasen vessels,
and of tables.


041:007:005
Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him,
Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders,
but eat bread with unwashen hands?


041:007:006
He answered and said unto them,
Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,
as it is written,
This people honoureth me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me.


041:007:007
Howbeit in vain do they worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


041:007:008
For laying aside the commandment of God,
ye hold the tradition of men,
as the washing of pots and cups:
and many other such like things ye do.


041:007:009
And he said unto them,
Full well ye reject the commandment of God,
that ye may keep your own tradition.


041:007:010
For Moses said,
Honour thy father and thy mother;
and,
Whoso curseth father or mother,
let him die the death:


041:007:011
But ye say,
If a man shall say to his father or mother,
It is Corban,
that is to say,
a gift,
by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
he shall be free.


041:007:012
And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;


041:007:013
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition,
which ye have delivered:
and many such like things do ye.


041:007:014
And when he had called all the people unto him,
he said unto them,
Hearken unto me every one of you,
and understand:


041:007:015
There is nothing from without a man,
that entering into him can defile him:
but the things which come out of him,
those are they that defile the man.


041:007:016
If any man have ears to hear,
let him hear.


041:007:017
And when he was entered into the house from the people,
his disciples asked him concerning the parable.


041:007:018
And he saith unto them,
Are ye so without understanding also?
Do ye not perceive,
that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man,
it cannot defile him;


041:007:019
Because it entereth not into his heart,
but into the belly,
and goeth out into the draught,
purging all meats?


041:007:020
And he said,
That which cometh out of the man,
that defileth the man.


041:007:021
For from within,
out of the heart of men,
proceed evil thoughts,
adulteries,
fornications,
murders,


041:007:022
Thefts,
covetousness,
wickedness,
deceit,
lasciviousness,
an evil eye,
blasphemy,
pride,
foolishness:


041:007:023
All these evil things come from within,
and defile the man.


041:007:024
And from thence he arose,
and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon,
and entered into an house,
and would have no man know it:
but he could not be hid.


041:007:025
For a certain woman,
whose young daughter had an unclean spirit,
heard of him,
and came and fell at his feet:


041:007:026
The woman was a Greek,
a Syrophenician by nation;
and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.


041:007:027
But Jesus said unto her,
Let the children first be filled:
for it is not meet to take the children's bread,
and to cast it unto the dogs.


041:007:028
And she answered and said unto him,
Yes,
Lord:
yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.


041:007:029
And he said unto her,
For this saying go thy way;
the devil is gone out of thy daughter.


041:007:030
And when she was come to her house,
she found the devil gone out,
and her daughter laid upon the bed.


041:007:031
And again,
departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon,
he came unto the sea of Galilee,
through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.


041:007:032
And they bring unto him one that was deaf,
and had an impediment in his speech;
and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.


041:007:033
And he took him aside from the multitude,
and put his fingers into his ears,
and he spit,
and touched his tongue;


041:007:034
And looking up to heaven,
he sighed,
and saith unto him,
Ephphatha,
that is,
Be opened.


041:007:035
And straightway his ears were opened,
and the string of his tongue was loosed,
and he spake plain.


041:007:036
And he charged them that they should tell no man:
but the more he charged them,
so much the more a great deal they published it;


041:007:037
And were beyond measure astonished,
saying,
He hath done all things well:
he maketh both the deaf to hear,
and the dumb to speak.
