Matthew Chapter 15

The Darby Bible

   1: Then the scribes and Pharisees from Jerusalem come up to Jesus, saying,
   2: Why do thy disciples transgress what has been delivered by the ancients? for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.
   3: But he answering said to them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God on account of your traditional teaching?
   4: For God commanded saying, Honour father and mother; and, He that speaks ill of father or mother, let him die the death.
   5: But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or mother, It is a gift, whatsoever [it be] by which [received] from me thou wouldest be profited:
   6: and he shall in no wise honour his father or his mother; and ye have made void the commandment of God on account of your traditional teaching.
   7: Hypocrites! well has Esaias prophesied about you, saying,
   8: This people honour me with the lips, but their heart is far away from me;
   9: but in vain do they worship me, teaching [as] teachings commandments of men.
   10: And having called to [him] the crowd, he said to them, Hear and understand:
   11: Not what enters into the mouth defiles the man; but what goes forth out of the mouth, this defiles the man.
   12: Then his disciples, coming up, said to him, Dost thou know that the Pharisees, having heard this word, have been offended?
   13: But he answering said, Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.
   14: Leave them alone; they are blind leaders of blind: but if blind lead blind, both will fall into a ditch.
   15: And Peter answering said to him, Expound to us this parable.
   16: But he said, Are ye also still without intelligence?
   17: Do ye not yet apprehend, that everything that enters into the mouth finds its way into the belly, and is cast forth into the draught?
   18: but the things which go forth out of the mouth come out of the heart, and those defile man.
   19: For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnessings, blasphemies;
   20: these are the things which defile man; but the eating with unwashen hands does not defile man.
   21: And Jesus, going forth from thence, went away into the parts of Tyre and Sidon;
   22: and lo, a Canaanitish woman, coming out from those borders, cried [to him] saying, Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is miserably possessed by a demon.
   23: But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came to [him] and asked him, saying, Dismiss her, for she cries after us.
   24: But he answering said, I have not been sent save to the lost sheep of Israel's house.
   25: But she came and did him homage, saying, Lord, help me.
   26: But he answering said, It is not well to take the bread of the children and cast it to the dogs.
   27: But she said, Yea, Lord; for even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from the table of their masters.
   28: Then Jesus answering said to her, O woman, thy faith [is] great. Be it to thee as thou desirest. And her daughter was healed from that hour.
   29: And Jesus, going away from thence, came towards the sea of Galilee, and he went up into the mountain and sat down there;
   30: and great crowds came to him, having with them lame, blind, dumb, crippled, and many others, and they cast them at his feet, and he healed them:
   31: so that the crowds wondered, seeing dumb speaking, crippled sound, lame walking, and blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.
   32: But Jesus, having called his disciples to [him], said, I have compassion on the crowd, because they have stayed with me already three days and they have not anything they can eat, and I would not send them away fasting lest they should faint on the way.
   33: And his disciples say to him, Whence should we have so many loaves in [the] wilderness as to satisfy so great a crowd?
   34: And Jesus says to them, How many loaves have ye? But they said, Seven, and a few small fishes.
   35: And he commanded the crowds to lie down on the ground;
   36: and having taken the seven loaves and the fishes, having given thanks, he broke [them] and gave [them] to his disciples, and the disciples to the crowd.
   37: And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was over and above of the fragments seven baskets full;
   38: but they that ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.
   39: And, having dismissed the crowds, he went on board ship and came to the borders of Magadan.
