Matthew 15

LEB 1 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying, NIV 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, LEB 2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat {a meal}." NIV 2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash their hands before they eat!" LEB 3 So he answered [and] said to them, "Why do you also break the commandment of God because of your tradition? NIV 3 Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? LEB 4 For God said, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and 'The one who speaks evil of father or mother {must certainly die}.' NIV 4 For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.' LEB 5 But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or his mother, "Whatever {benefit you would have received} from me [is] a gift [to God]," NIV 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,' LEB 6 need not honor his father,' and you make void the word of God for the sake of your tradition. NIV 6 he is not to 'honor his father ' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. LEB 7 Hypocrites! Isaiah correctly prophesied about you saying, NIV 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: LEB 8 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far, far away from me, NIV 8 " 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. LEB 9 and they worship me in vain, teaching [as] doctrines the commandments of men.'" NIV 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'" LEB 10 And summoning the crowd, he said to them, "Hear and understand: NIV 10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. LEB 11 It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth--this defiles a person." NIV 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.' " LEB 12 Then the disciples came [and] said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended [when they] heard this saying?" NIV 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?" LEB 13 And he answered [and] said, "Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant will be uprooted. NIV 13 He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. LEB 14 Let them! They are blind guides of the blind. And if the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit." NIV 14 Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit." LEB 15 But Peter answered [and] said to him, "Explain this parable to us." NIV 15 Peter said, "Explain the parable to us." LEB 16 But he said, "Are you also still without understanding? NIV 16 "Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them. LEB 17 Do you not understand that everything that enters into the mouth goes into the stomach and is evacuated into the latrine? NIV 17 "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? LEB 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these defile the person. NIV 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' LEB 19 For from the heart come evil plans, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, abusive speech. NIV 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. LEB 20 These are the things that defile a person. But eating with unwashed hands does not defile a person!" NIV 20 These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.' " LEB 21 And departing from there, Jesus went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon. NIV 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. LEB 22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that district came [and] cried out, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter [is] severely possessed by a demon!" NIV 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." LEB 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came up [and] asked him, saying, "Send her away, because she is crying out after us!" NIV 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." LEB 24 But he answered [and] said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." NIV 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel." LEB 25 But she came [and] knelt down before him, saying, "Lord, help me!" NIV 25 The woman came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said. LEB 26 And he answered [and] said, "It is not right to take the children's bread and throw [it] to the dogs!" NIV 26 He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs." LEB 27 So she said, "Yes, Lord, for even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table." NIV 27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." LEB 28 Then Jesus answered [and] said to her, "O woman, your faith [is] great! Let it be done for you as you want." And her daughter was healed from that hour. NIV 28 Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour. LEB 29 And departing from there, Jesus went along the Sea of Galilee, and he went up on the mountain [and] was sitting there. NIV 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down. LEB 30 And large crowds came to him, having with them [the] mute, blind, lame, crippled, and many others, and they put them down at his feet, and he healed them. NIV 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. LEB 31 So then the crowd was astonished [when they] saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing, and they praised the God of Israel. NIV 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. LEB 32 And Jesus summoned his disciples [and] said, "I have compassion on the crowd, because they have remained with me three days already and do not have anything to eat, and I do not want to send them away hungry lest they give out on the way." NIV 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." LEB 33 And the disciples said to him, "Where in [this] desolate place {can we get} so much bread that such a great crowd could be satisfied?" NIV 33 His disciples answered, "Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?" LEB 34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" So they said, "Seven, and a few little fish." NIV 34 "How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied, "and a few small fish." LEB 35 And commanding the crowd to recline for a meal on the ground, NIV 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. LEB 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish and [after he] had given thanks, he broke [them] and began giving [them] to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds. NIV 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. LEB 37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full. NIV 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. LEB 38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, in addition to women and children. NIV 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand, besides women and children. LEB 39 And [after he] sent away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan. NIV 39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
