Matthew: 15
4For God commanded, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die.' 5But you say, 'If any one tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is given to God, [Or: an offering] he need not honor his father.' 6So, for the sake of your tradition, you have made void the word [Other ancient authorities read: law] of God. 7You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: 8'This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;
9in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'" 10And he called the people to him and said to them, "Hear and understand: 11not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man." 12Then the disciples came and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?" 13He answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. 14Let them alone; they are [blind] guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit." 15But Peter said to him, "Explain the parable to us." 16And he said, "Are you also still without understanding? 17Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and so passes on? [Or: is evacuated] 18But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a man. 19For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander.
