Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the scribes and the Pharisees came to him from Jerusalem, and said, [Then scribes and Pharisees came nigh to him from Jerusalem, saying,] 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked,
2 Why break thy disciples the traditions of elder men [Why thy disciples break the traditions, either the teachings, of elder men]? for they wash not their hands, when they eat bread. 2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash their hands before they eat!"
3 He answered, and said to them, Why [also] break ye the commandment of God for your tradition? 3 Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition?
4 For God said, Honour thy father and thy mother [Honour thy father and mother], and he that curseth father or mother, die he by death. 4 For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.'
5 But ye say, Whoever saith to father or mother [But ye say, Whoever shall say to the father or mother], Whatever gift is of me, it shall profit to thee; 5 But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, 'Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,'
6 and he hath not worshipped his father or his mother [and he shall not honour his father either mother]; and ye have made the commandment of God void for your tradition. 6 he is not to 'honor his father ' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
7 Hypocrites, Esaias, the prophet, prophesied well of you, and said [saying], 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8 This people honoureth me with lips, but their heart is far from me; 8 " 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
9 and they worship me without cause [truly they worship me without cause], teaching the doctrines and the commandments of men. 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'"
10 And when the people were called together to him, he said to them, Hear ye, and understand ye. [+And the companies called together to him, he said to them, Hear, and understand.] 10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand.
11 That thing that entereth into the mouth, defouleth not a man [Not that thing that entereth into the mouth, defouleth a man]; but that thing that cometh out of the mouth, defouleth a man. 11 What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.' "
12 Then his disciples came, and said to him, Thou knowest, that, if this word be heard, the Pharisees be offended? [Then his disciples coming nigh said to him, Knowest thou, that, this word heard, Pharisees be offended?] 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?"
13 And he answered, and said, Every planting, that my Father of heaven hath not planted [which my Father of heaven hath not planted], shall be drawn up by the root. 13 He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
14 Suffer ye them; they be blind, and leaders of blind men. And if a blind man lead a blind man, both fall into the ditch [both fall down into the ditch]. 14 Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."
15 Peter answered, and said to him, Expound to us this parable. 15 Peter said, "Explain the parable to us."
16 And he said, Yet be ye also without understanding/Yet ye be without understanding? [And he said, Yet also ye be without understanding?] 16 "Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them.
17 Understand ye not, that all thing that entereth into the mouth, goeth into the womb, and is sent out into the going away? 17 "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
18 But those things that come forth from the mouth, go out from the heart [go out of the heart], and those things defoul the man. 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.'
19 For of the heart go out evil thoughts [For out of the heart cometh evil thoughts], manslayings, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnessings, blasphemies. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
20 These things it be that defoul a man; but to eat with hands not washed [soothly for to eat with hands unwashen], defouleth not a man. 20 These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.' "
21 And Jesus went out from thence, and went into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And lo! a woman of Canaan went out of those coasts, and cried, and said to him [saying to him], Lord, the son of David, have mercy on me; my daughter is evil travailed of a fiend [my daughter is evil travailed of a devil]. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession."
23 And he answered not to her a word. And his disciples came, and prayed him, and said, Let go thou her, for she crieth after us [And his disciples coming to, prayed him, saying, Leave thou her, for she crieth after us]. 23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, "Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us."
24 [Forsooth] He answered, and said, I am not sent, but to the sheep of the house of Israel that have perished. [Forsooth he answering saith, I am not sent, no but to the sheep of the house of Israel that perished.] 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel."
25 And she came, and worshipped him, and said, Lord, help me. [But she came, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.] 25 The woman came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said.
26 Which answered, and said, It is not good to take the bread of children, and cast [it] to hounds. 26 He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
27 And she said, Yes, Lord; for [the] whelps eat of the crumbs, that fall down from the board of their lords?. 27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table."
28 Then Jesus answered, and said to her, A! woman [O! thou woman], thy faith is great; be it done to thee, as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour. 28 Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
29 And when Jesus had passed from thence, he came beside the sea of Galilee. And he went up into an hill, and sat there. 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
30 And much people came to him, and had with them dumb men and crooked [men], feeble and blind, and many others; and they casted down them at his feet. And he healed them, [And many companies came nigh to him, having with them dumb men and crooked men, feeble and blind, and many others; and they cast them down at his feet. And he healed them,] 30 Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them.
31 so that the people wondered [so that the companies wondered], seeing dumb men speaking, and crooked [men] going, blind men seeing; and they magnified God of Israel. 31 The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel.
32 And Jesus, when his disciples were called together, said to them, I have ruth of the people, for they have abided now three days with me, and have nothing to eat; and I will not let them go fasting, lest they fail in the way. [+Forsooth Jesus said to his disciples called together, I have ruth of the company, for now three days they dwell still with me, and they have nothing that they shall eat; and I will not leave them fasting, lest they fail in the way.] 32 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way."
33 And the disciples say to him, Whereof then so many loaves among us in desert, to fulfill so great a people [that we fill so great a company]? 33 His disciples answered, "Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?"
34 And Jesus said to them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few small fishes. [+And Jesus saith to them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.] 34 "How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied, "and a few small fish."
35 And he commanded the people, to sit to meat on the earth. [And he commanded the company, that they should sit to the meat on the earth.] 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground.
36 And he took the seven loaves and five fishes, and did thankings, and brake them, and gave to his disciples; and the disciples gave to the people. 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people.
37 And all ate, and were fulfilled, and they took that that was left of remnants, seven baskets full. [And all ate, and were filled, and they took that that was over of the reliefs, seven baskets full.] 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
38 And they that ate were four thousand of men, without little children and women. 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand, besides women and children.
39 And when he had let go the people [And, the company left], he went up into a boat, and came into the coasts of Magdala. 39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
