Things that Defile - Mark 7

Mark 7:1 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and  certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. 

Mark 7:2  And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with  defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found  fault.

Mark 7:3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they  wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the  elders. 

Mark 7:4 And when they come from the Market,  except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there  be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of  cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables. 

Mark 7:5 Then the  Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy  disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat  bread with unwashen hands? 

Mark 7:6 He answered and said  unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,  as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips,  but their heart is far from me. 

Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they  worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of  men. 

Mark 7:8 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. 

Mark 7:9 And he said  unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God,  that ye may keep your own tradition. 

Mark 7:10 For Moses  said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth  father or mother, let him die the death: 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 7:11 But ye say, If  a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is  to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by  me; he shall be free. 

Mark 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to  do ought for his father or his mother; 

Mark 7:13 Making the  word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye  have delivered: and many such like things do ye.  

Mark 7:14 And when he had called all the people unto him,  he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and  understand: 

Mark 7:15 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. 

Mark 7:16  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 

Mark 7:17 And  when he was entered into the house from the people, his  disciples asked him concerning the parable. 

Mark 7:18 And he  saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do  ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth  into the man, it cannot defile him; 

Mark 7:19 Because it  entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out  into the draught, purging all meats? 

Mark 7:20 And he said,  That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.  

Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed  evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 

Mark 7:22  Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an  evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 

Mark 7:23 All these  evil things come from within, and defile the man.  

Mark 7:24 And from thence he arose, and went into the  borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and  would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.  

Mark 7:25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had  an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:  

Mark 7:26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation;  and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out  of her daughter. 

Mark 7:27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the  children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the  children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 

Mark 7:28 And  she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs  under the table eat of the children’s crumbs. 

Mark 7:29 And he  said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone  out of thy daughter. 

Mark 7:30 And when she was come to her  house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid  upon the bed.  

Mark 7:31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and  Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of  the coasts of Decapolis. 

Mark 7:32 And they bring unto him  one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and  they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 

Mark 7:33 And he  took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into  his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 

Mark 7:34 And  looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him,  Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 

Mark 7:35 And straightway his  ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed,  and he spake plain. 

Mark 7:36 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; 

Mark 7:37 And were  beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things  well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to  speak.
