15 Then there come unto Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and Scribes, saying—
2 Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread!
3 But he answering said unto them—Wherefore do ye also transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?
4 For God said—Honour thy father and thy mother, and—He that revileth father or mother let him surely die!
5 But ye say—Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother—A gift! whatsoever out of me thou mightest be profited
6 in nowise shall honour his father or his mother—and so ye have cancelled the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
7 Hypocrites! well prophesied concerning you Isaiah, saying—
8 This people with the lips do honour me, While their heart far off holdeth from me;
9 But in vain do they pay devotions unto me, Teaching for teachings the commandments of men.
10 And calling near the multitude he said to them—Hear and understand!
11 Not that which entereth into the mouth defileth the man, But that which proceedeth out of the mouth the same defileth the man.
12 Then coming near, his disciples say unto him—Knowest thou that the Pharisees hearing the word were caused to stumble?
13 And he answering, said—Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted will be uprooted:
14 Let them alone! they are blind leaders; and if the blind lead the blind both into a ditch will fall.
15 And Peter answering said unto him, Declare to us the parable.
16 And he said, To this moment are ye also without discernment?
17 Perceive ye not that every thing which entereth into the mouth into the stomach findeth way, and into the draught is passed;
18 while the things which proceed out of the mouth out of the heart come forth, and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart come forth wicked designs,—murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, profane speakings:
20 these are the things which defile the man, but the eating with unwashed hands doth not defile the man.
21 And going forth from thence Jesus retired into the parts of Tyre and Zidon.
22 And lo! a Canaanite woman from those bounds coming forth, began crying out, saying, Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably demonized.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples coming forward began requesting him, saying—Dismiss her, because she is crying out after us.
24 But he answering, said, I was not sent forth save unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 And she coming began bowing down to him, saying Lord! help me.
26 But he answering, said, It is not seemly to take the loaf of the children, and cast to the little dogs.
27 And she said, True, Lord! [for] even the little dogs eat of the crumbs which are falling from the table of their masters.
28 Then answering, Jesus said to her—O woman! great is thy faith! Be it done for thee as thou desirest. And her daughter was healed from that hour.
29 And passing on from thence Jesus came near the sea of Galilee, and going up into the mountain was sitting there.
30 And there came unto him large multitudes, having with themselves the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others,—and they cast them near his feet, and he cured them;
31 so that the multitude marvelled, seeing the dumb speaking, the lame walking and the blind seeing,—and they glorified the God of Israel.
32 But Jesus calling near his disciples said—My compassions are moved towards the multitude, because [even now] three days abide they with me and they have nothing to eat,—and to dismiss them fasting I am not willing, lest by any means they faint in the way.
33 And his disciples say unto him—Whence to us in a wilderness loaves in such numbers as to fill a multitude so great?
34 And Jesus saith unto them—How many loaves have ye? And they said,—Seven, and a few small fishes.
35 And sending word to the multitude to recline upon the ground
36 he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and giving thanks brake,—and began giving to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.
37 And they all did eat and were filled,—and the remainder of the broken pieces took they up, seven hampers full.
38 And they who did eat were four thousand men besides women and children.
39 And dismissing the multitudes he went up into the boat,—and came into the bounds of Magadan.
