Darby's Synopsis
   1: Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, who were of Jerusalem, saying,
   2: Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
   3: But he answered and said to them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
   4: For God commanded, saying, Honor thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
   5: But ye say, Whoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatever thou mightest be profited by me;
   6: And honor not his father or his mother, [he shall be free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.
   7: [Ye] hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
   8: This people draw nigh to me with their mouth, and honor me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.
   9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
   10: And he called the multitude, and said to them, Hear, and understand:
   11: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
   12: Then came his disciples, and said to him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying?
   13: But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be extirpated.
   14: Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leadeth the blind, both will fall into the ditch.
   15: Then answered Peter and said to him, Declare to us this parable.
   16: And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
   17: Do ye not yet understand, that whatever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
   18: But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
   19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
   20: These are [the things] which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
   21: Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the territories of Tyre and Sidon.
   22: And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same territories, and cried to him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, [thou] son of David; my daughter is grievously afflicted 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 am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
   25: Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me.
   26: But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast [it] to dogs.
   27: And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crums which fall from their master's table.
   28: Then Jesus answered and said to her, O woman, great [is] thy faith: be it to thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
   29: And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh to the sea of Galilee; and ascended a mountain, and sat down there.
   30: And great multitudes came to him, having with them [those that were] lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
   31: So that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
   32: Then Jesus called his disciples [to him], and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
   33: And his disciples say to him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to satisfy so great a multitude?
   34: And Jesus saith to them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
   35: And he commanded the multitude to sit on the ground.
   36: And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and broke [them], and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
   37: And they all ate and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that were left seven baskets full.
   38: And they that had eaten were four thousand men, besides women and children.
   39: And he sent away the multitude, and took a boat, and came into the borders of Magdala.
