Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:18 - “But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:19 - “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, [fn]fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:20 - “These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man.”
