Mark 7

WEB 1 Then the Pharisees, and some of the scribes gathered together to him, having come from Jerusalem. NIV 1 The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus WEB 2 Now when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled, that is, unwashed, hands, they found fault. NIV 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. WEB 3 (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, don't eat unless they wash their hands and forearms, holding to the tradition of 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. WEB 4 They don't eat when they come from the marketplace, unless they bathe themselves, and there are many other things, which they have received to hold to: washings of cups, pitchers, bronze vessels, and couches.) 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. ) WEB 5 The Pharisees and the scribes asked him, "Why don't your disciples walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with unwashed 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?” WEB 6 He answered them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors me with their lips, But their heart is far 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. WEB 7 But in vain do they worship me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' NIV 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’ WEB 8 "For you set aside the commandment of God, and hold tightly to the tradition of men -- the washing of pitchers and cups, and you do many other such things." NIV 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.” WEB 9 He said to them, "Full well do you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. NIV 9 And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observeyour own traditions! WEB 10 For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother;' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him 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.’ WEB 11 But you say, 'If a man will tell his father or his mother, "Whatever you might have been profited by me is Corban, that is to say, given 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)— WEB 12 and you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or his mother, NIV 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. WEB 13 making void the word of God by your tradition, which you have handed down. You do many things like this." NIV 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.” WEB 14 He called all the multitude to himself, and said to them, "Hear me, all of you, and understand. NIV 14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. WEB 15 There is nothing from outside of the man, that going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are those that defile the man. 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.” WEB 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!" WEB 17 When he had entered into the house from the multitude, his disciples asked him about the parable. NIV 17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. WEB 18 He said to them, "Are you so without understanding also? Don't you perceive that whatever goes into the man from outside can't defile him, NIV 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? WEB 19 because it doesn't go into his heart, but into his belly, and into the latrine, thus making all foods clean?" 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.) WEB 20 He said, "That which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man. NIV 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. WEB 21 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, sexual sins, murders, thefts, NIV 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, WEB 22 covetings, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. NIV 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. WEB 23 All these evil things proceed from within, and defile the man." NIV 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” WEB 24 From there he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house, and wanted no one to know it, but he couldn't escape detection. 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. WEB 25 For a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down 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. WEB 26 Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast 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. WEB 27 But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw 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.” WEB 28 But she answered him, "Yes, Lord. For 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.” WEB 29 He said to her, "For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter." NIV 29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” WEB 30 She went away to her house, and found the child laying on the bed, with the demon gone out. NIV 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. WEB 31 Again he departed from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the borders of Decapolis. 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. WEB 32 They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hand on him. 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. WEB 33 He took him aside from the multitude, privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat, and touched his 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. WEB 34 Looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!" NIV 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). WEB 35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke clearly. NIV 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. WEB 36 He charged them that they should tell no one, but the more he charged them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it. NIV 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. WEB 37 They were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear, and the mute 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.”
