Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:2 - and seeing some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, unwashed, hands,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:3 - (for the Pharisees and all the Jews, unless they wash their hands diligently, do not eat, holding what has been delivered by the ancients;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:4 - and on coming from the market-place, unless they are washed, they do not eat; and there are many other things which they have received to hold, the washing of cups and vessels, and brazen utensils, and couches),

The Heart of Man

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:14 - And having called again the crowd, he said to them, Hear me, all of you, and understand:

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:18 - And he says to them, Are *ye* also thus unintelligent? Do ye not perceive that all that is outside entering into the man cannot defile him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:19 - because it does not enter into his heart but into his belly, and goes out into the draught, purging all meats?
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:20 - And he said, That which goes forth out of the man, that defiles the man.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:21 - For from within, out of the heart of men, go forth evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:22 - thefts, covetousness, wickednesses, deceit, licentiousness, a wicked eye, injurious language, haughtiness, folly;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:23 - all these wicked things go forth from within and defile the man.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 7:37 - and they were astonished above measure, saying, He does all things well; he makes both the deaf to hear, and the speechless to speak.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
