Matthew 15

15:1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, who were of
 Jerusalem, saying,
15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the
 elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
15:3 But he answered and said to them, Why do ye also transgress
 the commandment of God by your tradition?
15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honor thy father and mother:
 and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
15:5 But ye say, Whoever shall say to [his] father or [his]
 mother, [It is] a gift, by whatever thou mightest be profited
 by me;
15:6 And honor not his father or his mother, [he shall be free].
 Thus have ye made the commandment of God of no effect by your
15:7 [Ye] hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
15:8 This people draw nigh to me with their mouth, and honor me
 with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.
15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines
 the commandments of men.
15:10 And he called the multitude, and said to them, Hear, and
15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but
 that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
15:12 Then came his disciples, and said to him, Knowest thou
 that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying?
15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
 Father hath not planted, shall be extirpated.
15:14 Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And
 if the blind leadeth the blind, both will fall into the ditch.
15:15 Then answered Peter and said to him, Declare to us this
15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
15:17 Do ye not yet understand, that whatever entereth in at the
 mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth
 from the heart; and they defile the man.
15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,
 adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
15:20 These are [the things] which defile a man: but to eat with
 unwashen hands defileth not a man.
15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the territories
 of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same
 territories, and cried to him, saying, Have mercy on me, O
 Lord, [thou] son of David; my daughter is grievously afflicted
 with a demon.
15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and
 besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but to the lost
 sheep of the house of Israel.
15:25 Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me.
15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the
 children's bread, and to cast [it] to dogs.
15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crums
 which fall from their master's table.
15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, O woman, great [is]
 thy faith: be it to thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
 was healed from that very hour.
15:29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh to the sea
 of Galilee; and ascended a mountain, and sat down there.
15:30 And great multitudes came to 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:
15:31 So 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.
15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples [to 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.
15:33 And his disciples say to him, Whence should we have so
 much bread in the wilderness, as to satisfy so great a
15:34 And Jesus saith to them, How many loaves have ye? And they
 said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit on the ground.
15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave
 thanks, and broke [them], and gave to his disciples, and the
 disciples to the multitude.
15:37 And they all ate and were filled: and they took up of the
 fragments that were left seven baskets full.
15:38 And they that had eaten were four thousand men, besides
 women and children.
15:39 And he sent away the multitude, and took a boat, and came
 into the borders of Magdala.
