Mark 7

NCV 1 When some Pharisees and some teachers of the law came from Jerusalem, they gathered around Jesus. NIV 1 The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus NCV 2 They saw that some of Jesus' followers ate food with hands that were not clean, that is, they hadn't washed them. NIV 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. NCV 3 (The Pharisees and all the Jews never eat before washing their hands in a special way according to their unwritten laws. 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. NCV 4 And when they buy something in the market, they never eat it until they wash themselves in a special way. They also follow many other unwritten laws, such as the washing of cups, pitchers, and pots.) 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. ) NCV 5 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law said to Jesus, "Why don't your followers obey the unwritten laws which have been handed down to us? Why do your followers eat their food with hands that are not clean?" 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?” NCV 6 Jesus answered, "Isaiah was right when he spoke about you hypocrites. He wrote, 'These people show honor to me with words, but their hearts are 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. NCV 7 Their worship of me is worthless. The things they teach are nothing but human rules.' NIV 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’ NCV 8 You have stopped following the commands of God, and you follow only human teachings." NIV 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.” NCV 9 Then Jesus said to them, "You cleverly ignore the commands of God so you can follow your own teachings. NIV 9 And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observeyour own traditions! NCV 10 Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and 'Anyone who says cruel things to his father or mother must 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.’ NCV 11 But you say a person can tell his father or mother, 'I have something I could use to help you, but it is Corban -- a gift 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)— NCV 12 You no longer let that person use that money for his father or his mother. NIV 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. NCV 13 By your own rules, which you teach people, you are rejecting what God said. And you do many things 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.” NCV 14 After Jesus called the crowd to him again, he said, "Every person should listen to me and understand what I am saying. NIV 14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. NCV 15 There is nothing people put into their bodies that makes them unclean. People are made unclean by the things that come out of them." 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.” NCV 16 NCV 17 When Jesus left the people and went into the house, his followers asked him about this story. NIV 17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. NCV 18 Jesus said, "Do you still not understand? Surely you know that nothing that enters someone from the outside can make that person unclean. NIV 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? NCV 19 It does not go into the mind, but into the stomach. Then it goes out of the body." (When Jesus said this, he meant that no longer was any food unclean for people to eat.) 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.) NCV 20 And Jesus said, "The things that come out of people are the things that make them unclean. NIV 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. NCV 21 All these evil things begin inside people, in the mind: evil thoughts, sexual sins, stealing, murder, adultery, NIV 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, NCV 22 greed, evil actions, lying, doing sinful things, jealousy, speaking evil of others, pride, and foolish living. NIV 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. NCV 23 All these evil things come from inside and make people unclean." NIV 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” NCV 24 Jesus left that place and went to the area around Tyre. When he went into a house, he did not want anyone to know he was there, but he could not stay hidden. 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. NCV 25 A woman whose daughter had an evil spirit in her heard that he was there. So she quickly came to Jesus 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. NCV 26 She was Greek, born in Phoenicia, in Syria. She begged Jesus to force 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. NCV 27 Jesus told the woman, "It is not right to take the children's bread and give it to the dogs. First let the children eat all they want." 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.” NCV 28 But she answered, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table can eat the children's crumbs." NIV 28 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” NCV 29 Then Jesus said, "Because of your answer, you may go. The demon has left your daughter." NIV 29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” NCV 30 The woman went home and found her daughter lying in bed; the demon was gone. NIV 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. NCV 31 Then Jesus left the area around Tyre and went through Sidon to Lake Galilee, to the area of the Ten Towns. 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. NCV 32 While he was there, some people brought a man to him who was deaf and could not talk plainly. The people begged Jesus to put his hand on the man to heal 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. NCV 33 Jesus led the man away from the crowd, by himself. He put his fingers in the man's ears and then 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. NCV 34 Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to the man, "Ephphatha!" (This means, "Be opened.") NIV 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). NCV 35 Instantly the man was able to hear and to use his tongue so that he spoke clearly. NIV 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. NCV 36 Jesus commanded the people not to tell anyone about what happened. But the more he commanded them, the more they told about it. NIV 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. NCV 37 They were completely amazed and said, "Jesus does everything well. He makes the deaf hear! And those who can't talk he makes able to 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.”
