NRS 1 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, NIV 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, NRS 2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands before they eat." NIV 2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash their hands before they eat!" NRS 3 He answered them, "And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? NIV 3 Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? NRS 4 For God said, "Honor your father and your mother,' and, "Whoever speaks evil of father or mother must surely die.' NIV 4 For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.' NRS 5 But you say that whoever tells father or mother, "Whatever support you might have had from me is given to God,' then that person need not honor the father. 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,' NRS 6 So, for the sake of your tradition, you make void the word of God. NIV 6 he is not to 'honor his father ' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. NRS 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied rightly about you when he said: NIV 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: NRS 8 "This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; NIV 8 " 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. NRS 9 in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.' " NIV 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'" NRS 10 Then he called the crowd to him and said to them, "Listen and understand: NIV 10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. NRS 11 it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but it is what comes out of the mouth that defiles." 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.' " NRS 12 Then the disciples approached and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees took offense when they heard what you said?" NIV 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?" NRS 13 He answered, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. NIV 13 He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. NRS 14 Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if one blind person guides another, 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." NRS 15 But Peter said to him, "Explain this parable to us." NIV 15 Peter said, "Explain the parable to us." NRS 16 Then he said, "Are you also still without understanding? NIV 16 "Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them. NRS 17 Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth enters the stomach, and goes out into the sewer? NIV 17 "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? NRS 18 But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this is what defiles. NIV 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' NRS 19 For out of the heart come evil intentions, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander. NIV 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. NRS 20 These are what defile a person, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile." NIV 20 These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.' " NRS 21 Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. NIV 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. NRS 22 Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented 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." NRS 23 But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, "Send her away, for she keeps shouting 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." NRS 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." NIV 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel." NRS 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." NIV 25 The woman came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said. NRS 26 He answered, "It is not fair to take the children's food 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." NRS 27 She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." NIV 27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." NRS 28 Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed instantly. NIV 28 Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

They put them at his feet, and he cured 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. NRS 31 so that the crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed whole, 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. NRS 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint 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." NRS 33 The disciples said to him, "Where are we to get enough bread in the desert to feed so great a crowd?" NIV 33 His disciples answered, "Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?" NRS 34 Jesus asked them, "How many loaves have you?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." NIV 34 "How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied, "and a few small fish." NRS 35 Then ordering the crowd to sit down on the ground, NIV 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground.
