Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then came to him from Jerusalem scribes and Pharisees, saying: 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked,
2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the ancients? 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 But he answering, said to them: Why do you also transgress the commandment of God for your tradition? For God said: 3 Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition?
4 Honour thy father and mother: And: He that shall curse father or mother, let him die the 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 you say: Whosoever shall say to father or mother, The gift whatsoever proceedeth from me, shall profit 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 shall not honour his father or his mother: and you have made void the commandment of God 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, well hath Isaias prophesied of you, saying: 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8 This people honoureth me with their 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 in vain do they worship me, teaching doctrines and commandments of men. 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'"
10 And having called together the multitudes unto him, he said to them: Hear ye and understand. 10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand.
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man: but what cometh out of the mouth, this defileth 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 came his disciples, and said to him: Dost thou know that the Pharisees, when they heard this word, were scandalized? 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?"
13 But he answering, said: Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 13 He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
14 Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both fall into the pit. 14 Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."
15 And Peter answering, said to him: Expound to us this parable. 15 Peter said, "Explain the parable to us."
16 But he said: Are you also yet without understanding? 16 "Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them.
17 Do you not understand, that whatsoever entereth into the mouth, goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the privy? 17 "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
18 But the things which proceed out of the mouth, come forth from the heart, and those things defile a man. 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.'
19 For from the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, blasphemies. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
20 These are the things that defile a man. But to eat with unwashed hands doth not defile a man. 20 These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.' "
21 And Jesus went from thence, and retired into the coast of Tyre and Sidon. 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And behold a woman of Canaan who came out of those coasts, crying out, said to him: Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David: my daughter is grievously troubled by 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 Who answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying: Send her away, 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 And he answering, said: I was not sent but to the sheep, that are lost of the house of Israel. 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel."
25 But she came and adored him, saying: Lord, help me. 25 The woman came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said.
26 Who answering, said: It is not good to take the bread of the children, and to cast it to the dogs. 26 He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
27 But she said: Yea, Lord; for the whelps also eat of the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters. 27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table."
28 Then Jesus answering, said to her: O woman, great is thy faith: be it done to thee as thou wilt: and her daughter was cured 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 away from thence, he came nigh the sea of Galilee: and going up into a mountain, he 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 there came to him great multitudes, having with them the dumb, the blind, the lame, the maimed, 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 multitudes marvelled seeing the dumb speak, the lame walk, the blind see: and they glorified the 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 called together his disciples, and said: I have compassion on the multitudes, because they continue with me now three days, and have not what to eat, and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint 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 unto him: Whence then should we have so many loaves in the desert, as to fill so great a multitude? 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 you? But 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 multitude to sit down upon the ground. 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground.
36 And taking the seven loaves and the fishes, and giving thanks, he brake, 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 they did all eat, and had their fill. And they took up seven baskets full, of what remained of the fragments. 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 did eat, were four thousand men, beside children and women. 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand, besides women and children.
39 And having dismissed the multitude, he went up into a boat, and came into the coasts of Magedan. 39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
