1: Then there come to Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and scribes, saying, 2: Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3: And he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4: For God said, Honor thy father and thy mother: and, He that speaketh evil of father or mother, let him die the death. 5: But ye say, whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, That wherewith thou mightest have been profited by me is given [to God]; 6: he shall not honor his father. And ye have made void the word of God because of your tradition. 7: Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 8: This people honoreth me with their lips; But their heart is far from me. 9: But in vain do they worship me, Teaching [as their] doctrines the precepts of men. 10: And he called to him the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11: Not that which entereth into the mouth defileth the man; but that which proceedeth out of the mouth, this defileth the man. 12: Then came the disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, when they heard this saying? 13: But he answered and said, Every plant which my heavenly Father planted not, shall be rooted up. 14: Let them alone: they are blind guides. And if the blind guide the blind, both shall fall into a pit. 15: And Peter answered and said unto him, Declare unto us the parable. 16: And he said, Are ye also even yet without understanding? 17: Perceive ye not, that whatsoever goeth into the mouth passeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18: But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth out of the heart; and they defile the man. 19: For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings: 20: these are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not the man. 21: And Jesus went out thence, and withdrew into the parts of Tyre and Sidon. 22: And behold, a Canaanitish woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a demon. 23: But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24: But he answered and said, I was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25: But she came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26: And he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. 27: But she said, Yea, Lord: for even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 28: Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it done unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour. 29: And Jesus departed thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and he went up into the mountain, and sat there. 30: And there came unto him great multitudes, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they cast them down at this feet; and he healed them: 31: insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, and lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32: And Jesus called unto him his disciples, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days and have nothing to eat: and I would not send them away fasting, lest haply they faint on the way. 33: And the disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so many loaves in a desert place as to fill so great a multitude? 34: And Jesus said unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few small fishes. 35: And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground; 36: and he took the seven loaves and the fishes; and he gave thanks and brake, and gave to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes. 37: And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full. 38: And they that did eat were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39: And he sent away the multitudes, and entered into the boat, and came into the borders of Magadan.
