1 The Pharisees and some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered round him,
Mark 3:22  Luke 5:17  Luke 11:53-54  Matt 15:1-20 

2 and they noticed that some of his disciples were eating with unclean hands, that is, without washing them.
Acts 10:28  Matt 7:3-5  Rom 14:14  Acts 10:14-15  Acts 11:8  Dan 6:4-5  Matt 23:23-25 

3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, keep the tradition of the elders and never eat without washing their arms as far as the elbow;
Gal 1:14  Mark 7:13  Col 2:8  1Pet 1:18  Col 2:21-23  Mark 7:5  Mark 7:7-10 

4 and on returning from the market place they never eat without first sprinkling themselves. There are also many other observances which have been handed down to them to keep, concerning the washing of cups and pots and bronze dishes.
Heb 9:10  Matt 23:25  Isa 1:16  Jas 4:8  Jer 4:14  John 2:6  Luke 11:38-39 

5 So the Pharisees and scribes asked him, 'Why do your disciples not respect the tradition of the elders but eat their food with unclean hands?'
2Thess 3:6  2Thess 3:11  Acts 21:21  Acts 21:24  Gal 1:14  Mark 2:16-18  Mark 7:2-3 

6 He answered, 'How rightly Isaiah prophesied about you hypocrites in the passage of scripture: This people honours me only with lip-service, while their hearts are far from me.
Isa 29:13  Matt 15:7-9  Titus 1:16  Ezek 33:31  Matt 23:13-15  Luke 11:39-44  Jas 2:14-17 

7 Their reverence of me is worthless; the lessons they teach are nothing but human commandments.
Col 2:22  Isa 29:13  Matt 6:7  Jas 1:26  Jas 2:20  Matt 15:9  Rev 14:11-12 

8 You put aside the commandment of God to observe human traditions.'
Mark 7:3-4  Isa 1:12 

9 And he said to them, 'How ingeniously you get round the commandment of God in order to preserve your own tradition!
Gal 2:21  Mark 7:3  Mark 7:13  Matt 15:3-6  2Kgs 16:10-16  2Thess 2:4  Dan 7:25 

10 For Moses said: Honour your father and your mother, and, Anyone who curses father or mother must be put to death.
Exod 21:17  Exod 20:12  Deut 5:16  Lev 20:9  Mark 10:19  Matt 15:4  Deut 27:16 

11 But you say, "If a man says to his father or mother: Anything I have that I might have used to help you is Korban (that is, dedicated to God),"
Matt 23:18  1Tim 5:4-8  Matt 15:5 

12 then he is forbidden from that moment to do anything for his father or mother.

13 In this way you make God's word ineffective for the sake of your tradition which you have handed down. And you do many other things like this.'
Mark 7:9  Hos 8:12  Titus 1:14  Ezek 18:14  Gal 5:21  Isa 8:20  Mark 7:3 

14 He called the people to him again and said, 'Listen to me, all of you, and understand.
1Kgs 18:21  1Kgs 22:28  Acts 8:30  Isa 6:9  Luke 12:54-57  Matt 15:10  Ps 49:1-2 

15 Nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean; it is the things that come out of someone that make that person unclean.
Acts 10:14-16  Lev 11:42-47  Matt 12:34  1Cor 10:25  1Tim 4:3-5  Acts 10:28  Acts 11:8-10 

16 Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!'

17 When he had gone into the house, away from the crowd, his disciples questioned him about the parable.
Matt 15:15  Matt 13:36  Mark 9:28  Mark 4:10  Mark 4:34  Matt 13:10 

18 He said to them, 'Even you -- don't you understand? Can't you see that nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean,
Matt 15:16-17  1Cor 3:2  Heb 5:11  Isa 28:9-10  Jer 5:4-5  John 3:10  Luke 24:25 

19 because it goes not into the heart but into the stomach and passes into the sewer?
1Cor 6:13  Acts 10:15  Matt 15:17  Acts 11:9  Col 2:16  Col 2:21-22  Luke 11:41 

20 And he went on, 'It is what comes out of someone that makes that person unclean.
Jas 3:6  Mark 7:15  Heb 7:6  Jas 1:14-15  Jas 4:1  Matt 12:34-37  Mic 2:1 

21 For it is from within, from the heart, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder,
Jas 4:1-3  Gal 5:19-21  Jer 17:9  Rom 8:7-8  1Pet 4:2-3  Acts 8:22  Jas 2:4 

22 adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly.
Matt 20:15  1Pet 2:15  1Pet 5:5  1Sam 18:8-9  2Chr 32:25-26  2Chr 32:31  2Cor 10:5 

23 All these evil things come from within and make a person unclean.'
Mark 7:15  1Cor 3:17  Jude 1:8  Mark 7:18  Titus 1:15 

24 He left that place and set out for the territory of Tyre. There he went into a house and did not want anyone to know he was there; but he could not pass unrecognised.
Matt 15:21-28  Mark 3:7-8  Matt 11:21  Mark 6:31-32  Ezek 28:2  Matt 9:28  1Tim 5:25 

25 At once a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit heard about him and came and fell at his feet.
Matt 15:22  Acts 10:25-26  Luke 17:16  Mark 1:40  Mark 5:22-23  Mark 5:33  Mark 9:17-23 

26 Now this woman was a gentile, by birth a Syro-Phoenician, and she begged him to drive the devil out of her daughter.
Isa 49:12  Matt 15:22  Col 3:11  Gal 3:28 

27 And he said to her, 'The children should be fed first, because it is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to little dogs.'
Matt 15:23-28  Acts 22:21  Matt 10:5  Eph 2:12  Matt 7:6  Rom 15:8 

28 But she spoke up, 'Ah yes, sir,' she replied, 'but little dogs under the table eat the scraps from the children.'
Acts 11:17-18  Eph 2:12-14  Eph 3:8  Isa 45:22  Isa 49:6  Luke 7:6-8  Luke 15:30-32 

29 And he said to her, 'For saying this you may go home happy; the devil has gone out of your daughter.'
Isa 66:2  1John 3:8  Isa 57:15-16  Matt 5:3  Matt 8:9-13 

30 So she went off home and found the child lying on the bed and the devil gone.
1John 3:8  John 4:50-52 

31 Returning from the territory of Tyre, he went by way of Sidon towards the Lake of Galilee, right through the Decapolis territory.
Mark 5:20  Matt 4:25  Mark 7:24  Matt 15:29-31  Matt 4:18  Matt 11:21 

32 And they brought him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they asked him to lay his hand on him.
Luke 11:14  Mark 5:23  Matt 9:32-33 

33 He took him aside to be by themselves, away from the crowd, put his fingers into the man's ears and touched his tongue with spittle.
Mark 8:23  John 9:6-7  Mark 5:40  1Kgs 17:19-22  2Kgs 4:4-6  2Kgs 4:33-34 

34 Then looking up to heaven he sighed; and he said to him, 'Ephphatha,' that is, 'Be opened.'
Mark 6:41  Mark 8:12  John 11:33  John 11:41  John 17:1  Acts 9:34  Acts 9:40 

35 And his ears were opened, and at once the impediment of his tongue was loosened and he spoke clearly.
Isa 35:5-6  Isa 32:3-4  Mark 2:12  Matt 11:5  Ps 33:9 

36 And Jesus ordered them to tell no one about it, but the more he insisted, the more widely they proclaimed it.
Matt 8:4  Mark 3:12  Mark 5:43  Mark 8:26  Mark 1:44-45 

37 Their admiration was unbounded, and they said, 'Everything he does is good, he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.'
Acts 2:7-12  Acts 3:10-13  Acts 14:11  Exod 4:10-11  Gen 1:31  Luke 23:41  Mark 1:27
