Mark 7

CEBA 1 The Pharisees and some legal experts from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus. NIV 1 The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus CEBA 2 They saw some of his disciples eating food with unclean hands. (They were eating without first ritually purifying their hands through washing. NIV 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. CEBA 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. NIV 3 (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. CEBA 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.) NIV 4 When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles. ) CEBA 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?" NIV 5 So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?” CEBA 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. NIV 6 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. CEBA 7 Their worship of me is empty since they teach instructions that are human words. NIV 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’ CEBA 8 You ignore God's commandment while holding on to rules created by humans and handed down to you." NIV 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.” CEBA 9 Jesus continued, "Clearly, you are experts at rejecting God's commandment in order to establish these rules. NIV 9 And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observeyour own traditions! CEBA 10 Moses said, Honor your father and your mother, and The person who speaks against father or mother will certainly be put to death. NIV 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ CEBA 11 But you say, ‘If you tell your father or mother, Everything I'm expected to contribute to you is corban (that is, a gift I'm giving to God), NIV 11 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)— CEBA 12 then you are no longer required to care for your father or mother.' NIV 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. CEBA 13 In this way you do away with God's word in favor of the rules handed down to you, which you pass on to others. And you do a lot of other things just like that." NIV 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.” CEBA 14 Then Jesus called the crowd again and said, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand. NIV 14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. CEBA 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." NIV 15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.” CEBA 17 After leaving the crowd, he entered a house where his disciples asked him about that riddle. NIV 17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. CEBA 18 He said to them, "Don't you understand either? Don't you know that nothing from the outside that enters a person has the power to contaminate? NIV 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? CEBA 19 That's because it doesn't enter into the heart but into the stomach, and it goes out into the sewer." By saying this, Jesus declared that no food could contaminate a person in God's sight. NIV 19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.) CEBA 20 "It's what comes out of a person that contaminates someone in God's sight," he said. NIV 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. CEBA 21 "It's from the inside, from the human heart, that evil thoughts come: sexual sins, thefts, murders, NIV 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, CEBA 22 adultery, greed, evil actions, deceit, unrestrained immorality, envy, insults, arrogance, and foolishness. NIV 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. CEBA 23 All these evil things come from the inside and contaminate a person in God's sight." NIV 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” CEBA 24 Jesus left that place and went into the region of Tyre. He didn't want anyone to know that he had entered a house, but he couldn't hide. NIV 24 Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. CEBA 25 In fact, a woman whose young daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit heard about him right away. She came and fell at his feet. NIV 25 In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spirit came and fell at his feet. CEBA 26 The woman was Greek, Syrophoenician by birth. She begged Jesus to throw the demon out of her daughter. NIV 26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter. CEBA 27 He responded, "The children have to be fed first. It isn't right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs." NIV 27 “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” CEBA 28 But she answered, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." NIV 28 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” CEBA 29 "Good answer!" he said. "Go on home. The demon has already left your daughter." NIV 29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” CEBA 30 When she returned to her house, she found the child lying on the bed and the demon gone. NIV 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. CEBA 31 After leaving the region of Tyre, Jesus went through Sidon toward the Galilee Sea through the region of the Ten Cities. NIV 31 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis. CEBA 32 Some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly speak, and they begged him to place his hand on the man for healing. NIV 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him. CEBA 33 Jesus took him away from the crowd by himself and put his fingers in the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue. NIV 33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue. CEBA 34 Looking into heaven, Jesus sighed deeply and said, "Ephphatha," which means, "Open up." NIV 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). CEBA 35 At once, his ears opened, his twisted tongue was released, and he began to speak clearly. NIV 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. CEBA 36 Jesus gave the people strict orders not to tell anyone. But the more he tried to silence them, the more eagerly they shared the news. NIV 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. CEBA 37 People were overcome with wonder, saying, "He does everything well! He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who can't speak." NIV 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”
