@ Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
@ Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
@ But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
@ For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
@ But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
@ And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
@ Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
@ This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
@ But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
@ And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
@ Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
@ Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
@ But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
@ Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
@ Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
@ And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
@ Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
@ But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
@ For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
@ These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
