2 “Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they ado not wash their hands when they eat bread.”
5 “But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever I have that would help you has been 1given to God,”
6 he is not to honor his father or his mother1.’ And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
8 ‘aThis people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far away from Me.
Teaching as adoctrines the precepts of men.’ ”
11 “aIt is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.”
13 But He answered and said, “aEvery plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted.
16 1Jesus said, “Are you still lacking in understanding also?
17 “Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is 1eliminated?
18 “But athe things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.
23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, “Send her away, because she keeps shouting 1at us.”
24 But He answered and said, “I was sent only to athe lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
26 And He answered and said, “It is not 1good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
27 But she said, “Yes, Lord; 1but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
32 aAnd Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, “bI feel compassion for the 1people, because they 2have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.”
33 The disciples * said to Him, “Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd?”
34 And Jesus * said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven, and a few small fish.”
36 and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and agiving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large abaskets full.
