Mark 7:15  (King James Version)
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.

Though it is very true, says Dr. Doddridge, that a man may bring guilt upon himself by eating to excess, and a Jew, by eating what was forbidden by the Mosaic law; yet still the pollution would arise from the wickedness of the heart, and be just proportionable to it, which is all our Lord asserts.
