Matthew 15

GNTA 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the Law came from Jerusalem to Jesus and asked him, NIV 1 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, GNTA 2 "Why is it that your disciples disobey the teaching handed down by our ancestors? They don't wash their hands in the proper way before they eat!" NIV 2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!” GNTA 3 Jesus answered, "And why do you disobey God's command and follow your own teaching? NIV 3 Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? GNTA 4 For God said, "Respect your father and your mother,' and "If you curse your father or your mother, you are to be put to death.' NIV 4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ GNTA 5 But you teach that if people have something they could use to help their father or mother, but say, "This belongs to God,' NIV 5 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ GNTA 6 they do not need to honor their father. In this way you disregard God's command, in order to follow your own teaching. NIV 6 they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. GNTA 7 You hypocrites! How right Isaiah was when he prophesied about you! NIV 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: GNTA 8 "These people, says God, honor me with their words, but their heart is really far away from me. NIV 8 “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. GNTA 9 It is no use for them to worship me, because they teach human rules as though they were my laws!' " NIV 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’” GNTA 10 Then Jesus 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. GNTA 11 It is not what goes into your mouth that makes you ritually unclean; rather, what comes out of it makes you unclean." NIV 11 What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” GNTA 12 Then the disciples came to him and said, "Do you know that the Pharisees had their feelings hurt by 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?” GNTA 13 "Every plant which my Father in heaven did not plant will be pulled up," answered Jesus. NIV 13 He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. GNTA 14 "Don't worry about them! They are blind leaders of the blind; and when one blind man leads another, both fall into a ditch." NIV 14 Leave them; they are blind guides.If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” GNTA 15 Peter spoke up, "Explain this saying to us." NIV 15 Peter said, “Explain the parable to us.” GNTA 16 Jesus said to them, "You are still no more intelligent than the others. NIV 16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. GNTA 17 Don't you understand? Anything that goes into your mouth goes into your stomach and then on out of your body. NIV 17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? GNTA 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these are the things that make you ritually unclean. NIV 18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. GNTA 19 For from your heart come the evil ideas which lead you to kill, commit adultery, and do other immoral things; to rob, lie, and slander others. NIV 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. GNTA 20 These are the things that make you unclean. But to eat without washing your hands as they say you should - this doesn't make you unclean." NIV 20 These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.” GNTA 21 Jesus left that place and went off to the territory near the cities of Tyre and Sidon. NIV 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. GNTA 22 A Canaanite woman who lived in that region came to him. "Son of David!" she cried out. "Have mercy on me, sir! My daughter has a demon and is in a terrible condition." NIV 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.” GNTA 23 But Jesus did not say a word to her. His disciples came to him and begged him, "Send her away! She is following us and making all this noise!" 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.” GNTA 24 Then Jesus replied, "I have been sent only to the lost sheep of the people of Israel." NIV 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” GNTA 25 At this the woman came and fell at his feet. "Help me, sir!" she said. NIV 25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said. GNTA 26 Jesus answered, "It isn't right 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 the dogs.” GNTA 27 "That's true, sir," she answered, "but even the dogs eat the leftovers that fall from their masters' table." NIV 27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” GNTA 28 So Jesus answered her, "You are a woman of great faith! What you want will be done for you." And at that very moment her daughter was healed. NIV 28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment. GNTA 29 Jesus left there and went along by Lake Galilee. He climbed a hill and sat down. NIV 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down. GNTA 30 Large crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the dumb, and many other sick people, whom they placed at Jesus' feet; and he healed 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. GNTA 31 The people were amazed as they saw the dumb speaking, the crippled made 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. GNTA 32 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I feel sorry for these people, because they have been with me for three days and now have nothing to eat. I don't want to send them away without feeding them, for they might faint on their way home." 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.” GNTA 33 The disciples asked him, "Where will we find enough food in this desert to feed this crowd?" NIV 33 His disciples answered, “Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?” GNTA 34 "How much bread do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven loaves," they answered, "and a few small fish." NIV 34 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied, “and a few small fish.” GNTA 35 So Jesus ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. NIV 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. GNTA 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks to God, broke them, and gave them to the disciples; and the disciples gave them to the people. NIV 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people. GNTA 37 They all ate and had enough. Then the disciples took up seven baskets full of pieces left over. NIV 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. GNTA 38 The number of men who ate was four thousand, not counting the women and children. NIV 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand men, besides women and children. GNTA 39 Then Jesus sent the people away, got into a boat, and went to the territory of Magadan. NIV 39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
