15:1 Then Pharisees and scribes come to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying,
15:3 He answered them, "Why do you also disobey the commandment of God because of your tradition?
15:4 For God commanded, `Honor your father and your mother,` and, `He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.`
15:6 he will not honor his father or mother.` You have made the commandment of God void because of your tradition.
15:7 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
15:8 `These people draw near to me with their mouth, And honor me with their lips; But their heart is far from me.
15:10 He called the multitude to himself, and said to them, "Hear, and understand.
15:11 That which enters into the mouth doesn`t defile the man; but that which proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man."
15:12 Then the disciples came, and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended, when they heard this saying?"
15:13 But he answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father didn`t plant will be uprooted.
15:14 Let them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. If the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit."
15:15 Peter answered him, "Explain the parable to us."
15:16 So Jesus said, "Do you also still not understand?
15:18 But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth out of the heart, and they defile the man.
15:20 These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands doesn`t defile the man."
15:23 But he answered her not a word. His disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away; for she cries after us."
15:24 But he answered, "I wasn`t sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
15:25 But she came and worshipped him, saying, "Lord, help me."
15:29 Jesus departed there, and came near to the sea of Galilee; and he went up into the mountain, and sat there.
15:32 Jesus called his disciples to him, and said, "I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days and have nothing to eat. I don`t want to send them away fasting, or they might faint on the way."
15:35 He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground;
15:39 He sent away the multitudes, and entered into the boat, and came into the borders of Magdala.
