15:1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
15:1 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying,

15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
15:2 "Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread."

15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
15:3 He answered and said to them, "Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?

15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
15:4 "For God commanded, saying, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.'

15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
15:5 "But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God"--

15:6 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.
15:6 'then he need not honor his father or mother.' Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.

15:7 [Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
15:7 "Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.
15:8 'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.

15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
15:9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'"

15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
15:10 When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, "Hear and understand:

15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
15:11 "Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man."

15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
15:12 Then His disciples came and said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?"

15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
15:13 But He answered and said, "Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.

15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15:14 "Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch."

15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
15:15 Then Peter answered and said to Him, "Explain this parable to us."

15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
15:16 So Jesus said, "Are you also still without understanding?

15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
15:17 "Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated?

15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
15:18 "But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.

15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
15:19 "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

15:20 These are [the things] which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
15:20 "These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man."

15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
15:21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.

15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, [thou] Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."

15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
15:23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us."

15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
15:24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
15:25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"

15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast [it] to dogs.
15:26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."

15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."

15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great [is] thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

15:29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
15:29 Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there.

15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them [those that were] lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
15:30 Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus' feet, and He healed them.

15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
15:31 So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples [unto him], and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
15:32 Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, "I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way."

15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
15:33 Then His disciples said to Him, "Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill such a great multitude?"

15:34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
15:34 Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven, and a few little fish."

15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
15:35 So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake [them], and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
15:36 And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude.

15:37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken [meat] that was left seven baskets full.
15:37 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets full of the fragments that were left.

15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
15:38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

15:39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.
15:39 And He sent away the multitude, got into the boat, and came to the region of Magdala.
