Mark 7:1-8

CEB 1 The Pharisees and some legal experts from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus. NRS 1 Now when the Pharisees and some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered around him, CEB 2 They saw some of his disciples eating food with unclean hands. (They were eating without first ritually purifying their hands through washing. NRS 2 they noticed that some of his disciples were eating with defiled hands, that is, without washing them. CEB 3 The Pharisees and all the Jews don't eat without first washing their hands carefully. This is a way of observing the rules handed down by the elders. NRS 3 (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they thoroughly wash their hands, thus observing the tradition of the elders; CEB 4 Upon returning from the marketplace, they don't eat without first immersing themselves. They observe many other rules that have been handed down, such as the washing of cups, jugs, pans, and sleeping mats.) NRS 4 and they do not eat anything from the market unless they wash it; and there are also many other traditions that they observe, the washing of cups, pots, and bronze kettles. ) CEB 5 So the Pharisees and legal experts asked Jesus, "Why are your disciples not living according to the rules handed down by the elders but instead eat food with ritually unclean hands?" NRS 5 So the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, "Why do your disciples not live according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with defiled hands?" CEB 6 He replied, "Isaiah really knew what he was talking about when he prophesied about you hypocrites. He wrote, This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me. NRS 6 He said to them, "Isaiah prophesied rightly about you hypocrites, as it is written, "This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; CEB 7 Their worship of me is empty since they teach instructions that are human words. NRS 7 in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.' CEB 8 You ignore God's commandment while holding on to rules created by humans and handed down to you." NRS 8 You abandon the commandment of God and hold to human tradition."

CEB 14 Then Jesus called the crowd again and said, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand. NRS 14 Then he called the crowd again and said to them, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand: CEB 15 Nothing outside of a person can enter and contaminate a person in God's sight; rather, the things that come out of a person contaminate the person." NRS 15 there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile."
