Jesus said to them, "Don't you understand? Don't you know that whatever goes into a person from the outside can't make him unclean?
It doesn't go into his thoughts but into his stomach and then into a toilet." (By saying this, Jesus declared all foods acceptable.)
He continued, "It's what comes out of a person that makes him unclean.
Evil thoughts, sexual sins, stealing, murder,
adultery, greed, wickedness, cheating, shameless lust, envy, cursing, arrogance, and foolishness come from within a person.
All these evils come from within and make a person unclean."
Jesus left that place and went to the territory of Tyre. He didn't want anyone to know that he was staying in a house there. However, it couldn't be kept a secret.
A woman whose little daughter had an evil spirit heard about Jesus. She went to him and bowed down.
The woman happened to be Greek, born in Phoenicia in Syria. She asked him to force the demon out of her daughter.
Jesus said to her, "First, let the children eat all they want. It's not right to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs."
She answered him, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat some of the children's scraps."
