Mark 7

7:1 Then came together to him the Pharisees, and certain of the
 scribes, who came from Jerusalem.
7:2 And when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with
 defiled (that is to say with unwashed) hands, they found fault.
7:3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash
 [their] hands often eat not, holding the tradition of the
7:4 And [when they come] from the market, except they wash, they
 eat not. And many other things there are, which they have
 received to hold, [as] the washing of cups, and pots, and of
 brazen vessels, and tables.
7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy
 disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat
 bread with unwashed hands?
7:6 He answered and said to them, Well hath Isaiah prophesied
 concerning you hypocrites, as it is written, This people
 honoreth me with [their] lips, but their heart is far from me.
7:7 But, in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines
 the commandments of men.
7:8 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.
7:9 And he said to them, Full well ye reject the commandment of
 God, that ye may keep your own tradition,
7:10 For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and,
 Whoever curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, [It
 is] Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatever thou mightest
 be profited by me; [he shall be free].
7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do aught for his father or his
7:13 Making the word of God of no effect through your
 traditions, which ye have delivered: and many such like things
 ye do.
7:14 And when he had called all the people [to him], he said to
 them, Hearken to me every one [of you], and understand.
7:15 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.
7:16 If any man hath ears to hear, let him hear.
7:17 And when he had entered into the house from the people, his
 disciples asked him concerning the parable.
7:18 And he saith to them, Are ye so void of understanding also?
 Do ye not perceive, that whatever thing from without entereth
 into the man, [it] cannot defile him.
7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly,
 and goeth out into the draught, purging all kinds of food.
7:20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that
 defileth the man.
7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil
 thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness,
 an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness;
7:23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
7:24 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre
 and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would have no man know
 [it]: but he could not be hid.
7:25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean
 spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
7:26 (The woman was a Greek, a Syro-phenician by nation,) and
 she besought him that he would cast forth the demon out of her
7:27 But Jesus said to her, Let the children first be satisfied:
 for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast
 [it] to the dogs.
7:28 And she answered and said to him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs
 under the table eat of the children's crums.
7:29 And he said to her, For this saying, depart; the demon is
 gone out of thy daughter.
7:30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon had
 gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
7:31 And again, departing from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, he
 came to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the borders of
7:32 And they bring to him one that was deaf, and had an
 impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand
 upon him.
7:33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his
 fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue.
7:34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith to him,
 Effatha, that is, Be opened.
7:35 And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his
 tongue was loosed, and he spoke plain.
7:36 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];
7:37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done
 all things well; he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb
 to speak.
