1Then came togetheruntohim the Pharisees,andcertain of the scribes, which camefromJerusalem.2And when they sawsome of hisdiscipleseatbread with defiled,a that is to say , with unwashen,hands, they found fault .
3For the Pharisees,andall the Jews,except they wash their handsoft,beatnot,holding the tradition of the elders.4And when they come from the market,except they wash , they eatnot.Andmany other things there be , which they have received to hold , as the washing of cups,andpots ,c brasen vessels,and of tables.5Then the Phariseesandscribesaskedhim,Whywalknotthydisciplesaccording to the tradition of the elders,buteatbread with unwashenhands?6
He answeredandsaid unto them , Well hath Esaiasprophesiedofyouhypocrites,as it is written , Thispeoplehonourethme with their lips,buttheirheartisfarfromme.7Howbeit in vain do they worshipme,teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.8For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of potsandcups:andmanyothersuch like things ye do .9And he said unto them,Full well ye rejectd the commandment of God,that ye may keep your owntradition.10ForMosessaid , Honourthyfatherandthymother;and, Whoso cursethfatherormother, let him die the death:11Butyesay , If a man shall say to his fatherormother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift,bywhatsoeverthou mightest be profited byme; he shall be free.12And ye sufferhim no more to doought for hisfatherorhismother;13Making the word of God of none effect through yourtradition,which ye have delivered : andmanysuch like things do ye .14And when he had calledall the people unto him, he said unto them,Hearken unto me every one of you, andunderstand :15There isnothing from without a man,thatenteringintohimcandefilehim:but the things which come out ofhim,those are they that defile the man.16If any manhaveears to hear , let him hear .17Andwhen he was enteredinto the housefrom the people,hisdisciplesaskedhimconcerning the parable.18And he saith unto them,Areyeso without understandingalso? Do yenotperceive , that whatsoever thing from withoutenterethinto the man, it cannotdefilehim;19Because it enterethnotintohisheart,butinto the belly,and goeth outinto the draught,purgingallmeats?20And he said , That which cometh out of the man,thatdefileth the man.21For from within, out of the heart of men,proceedevilthoughts,adulteries,fornications,murders,22Thefts,covetousness,ewickedness,deceit,lasciviousness, an evileye,blasphemy,pride,foolishness:23Allthese evil thingscome from within,anddefile the man.24And from thence he arose , and wentinto the borders of TyreandSidon,andenteredinto an house, and would have no manknow it: but he couldnot be hid .
25For a certain woman,whoseyoungdaughterhad an uncleanspirit,heardofhim, and came and fellathisfeet:26Thewomanwas a Greek,f a Syrophenician by nation;and she besoughthimthat he would cast forth the devil out ofherdaughter.27ButJesussaid unto her,Let the childrenfirst be filled : for it isnotmeet to take the children'sbread,and to cast it unto the dogs.28And she answeredandsaid unto him,Yes,Lord:yetthedogsunder the tableeatof the children'scrumbs.29And he said unto her,Forthissaying go thy way ; the devil is gone out ofthydaughter.30And when she was cometoherhouse, she found the devil gone out , and her daughterlaidupon the bed.31Andagain,departingfrom the coasts of TyreandSidon, he cameunto the sea of Galilee,through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.32And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech;and they beseechhimtoput his hand upon him.33And he tookhimasidefrom the multitude, and puthisfingersintohisears,and he spit , and touchedhistongue;34And looking uptoheaven, he sighed , andsaith unto him,Ephphatha, that is,Be opened .35Andstraightwayhisears were opened , and the string of histongue was loosed , and he spakeplain.36And he chargedthemthat they should tell no man:but the morehechargedthem, so much the more a great deal they published it;
37And were beyond measureastonished , saying , He hath done all thingswell: he makethboth the deaf to hear , and the dumb to speak .
