Darby's Synopsis
   1: Then came together to him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, who came from Jerusalem.
   2: And when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled (that is to say with unwashed) hands, they found fault.
   3: For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash [their] hands often eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
   4: And [when they come] from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there are, which they have received to hold, [as] the washing of cups, and pots, and of brazen vessels, and tables.
   5: Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?
   6: He answered and said to them, Well hath Isaiah prophesied concerning you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with [their] lips, but their heart is far from me.
   7: But, in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
   8: For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, [as] the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
   9: And he said to them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition,
   10: For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, Whoever curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
   11: But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, [It is] Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatever thou mightest be profited by me; [he shall be free].
   12: And ye suffer him no more to do aught for his father or his mother;
   13: Making the word of God of no effect through your traditions, which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do.
   14: And when he had called all the people [to him], he said to them, Hearken to me every one [of you], and understand.
   15: There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him, can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
   16: If any man hath ears to hear, let him hear.
   17: And when he had entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
   18: And he saith to them, Are ye so void of understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatever thing from without entereth into the man, [it] cannot defile him.
   19: Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all kinds of food.
   20: And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
   21: For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
   22: Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness;
   23: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
   24: And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would have no man know [it]: but he could not be hid.
   25: For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
   26: (The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation,) and she besought him that he would cast forth the demon out of her daughter.
   27: But Jesus said to her, Let the children first be satisfied: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast [it] to the dogs.
   28: And she answered and said to him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crums.
   29: And he said to her, For this saying, depart; the demon is gone out of thy daughter.
   30: And when she had come to her house, she found the demon had gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
   31: And again, departing from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, he came to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the borders of Decapolis.
   32: And they bring to him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.
   33: And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue.
   34: And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith to him, Effatha, that is, Be opened.
   35: And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plain.
   36: And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them; so much the more a great deal they published [it];
   37: And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well; he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
