Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:1 - Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:2 - "Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:3 - He answered them, "And why do you transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:4 - For God commanded, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:5 - But you say, 'If any one tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is given to God, he need not honor his father.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:6 - So, for the sake of your tradition, you have made void the word of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:7 - You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:8 - 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:9 - in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:10 - And he called the people to him and said to them, "Hear and understand:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:11 - not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:12 - Then the disciples came and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:13 - He answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:14 - Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:15 - But Peter said to him, "Explain the parable to us."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:16 - And he said, "Are you also still without understanding?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:17 - Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and so passes on?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:18 - But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a man.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:19 - For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:20 - These are what defile a man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:21 - And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:22 - And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and cried, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely possessed by a demon."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:23 - But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away, for she is crying after us."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:24 - He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:25 - But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:26 - And he answered, "It is not fair to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:27 - She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:28 - Then Jesus answered her, "O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire." And her daughter was healed instantly.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:29 - And Jesus went on from there and passed along the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain, and sat down there.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:30 - And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:31 - so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:32 - Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat; and I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:33 - And the disciples said to him, "Where are we to get bread enough in the desert to feed so great a crowd?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:34 - And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves have you?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:35 - And commanding the crowd to sit down on the ground,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:36 - he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:37 - And they all ate and were satisfied; and they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:38 - Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 15:39 - And sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Mag'adan.
