Mark 71Then the Pharisees, and some of the scribes gathered together to him, having come from Jerusalem. 2Now when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled, that is, unwashed, hands, they found fault. 3(For the Pharisees, and all the Judeans, do not eat unless they wash their hands and forearms, holding to the tradition of the elders. 4They do not eat when they come from the marketplace, unless they bathe themselves, and there are many other things, which they have received to hold to: washings of cups, pitchers, and bronze vessels ▼
▼M TR add "and couches".) 5The Pharisees and the scribes asked him, "Why do your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with unwashed hands?"
▼M TR add "answered and"said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,
'This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me.
7But in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' ▼
8"For you set aside the commandment of God, and hold tightly to the tradition of men ▼
▼M TR add "the washing of pitchers and cups, and you do many other such things"." 9He said to them, "Full well do you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. 10For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother;' ▼
▼Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:16and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.' ▼
▼Exodus 21:17; Leviticus 20:911But you say, 'If a man tells his father or his mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban ▼
▼Corban is a Hebrew word for an offering devoted to God, that is to say, given to God;"' 12then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or his mother, 13making void the word of God by your tradition, which you have handed down. You do many things like this."
14He called all the multitude to himself, and said to them, "Hear me, all of you, and understand. 15There is nothing from outside of the man, that going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are those that defile the man." [ 16If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!] ▼
▼M TR add bracketed
17When he had entered into a house away from the multitude, his disciples asked him about the parable. 18He said to them, "Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever goes into the man from outside cannot defile him, 19because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach, then into the latrine, cleansing all the foods?" 20He said, "That which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man. 21For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, sexual sins, murders, thefts, 22covetings, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man."
24From there he arose, and went away into the region ▼
▼M TR read "border" instead of "region"of Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house, and did not want anyone to know it, but he could not escape notice. 25For a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, immediately ▼
▼M TR omit "immediately"came and fell down at his feet. 26Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. 27But he ▼
▼M TR read "Yeshua" instead of "he"said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
28But she answered him, "Yes ▼
▼M (Aleph B et al.) reading. NU omits "Yes", Sir. Yet even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs."
29He said to her, "For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter."
30And when she went away to her house, she found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone out ▼
▼M TR: "found the demon gone out, and the child lying on the bed".
31Again he departed from the borders of Tyre, and came through Sidon ▼
▼M TR: "borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came through"to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the region of Decapolis. 32They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hand on him. 33He took him aside from the multitude, privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat, and touched his tongue. 34Looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!" 35Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke clearly. 36He commanded them that they should tell no one, but the more he commanded them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it. 37They were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear, and the mute speak!"
