Mark 7 (WEBP)
 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered together to him, having come from Jerusalem.
 Now when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled, that is unwashed, hands, they found fault.
 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews don’t eat unless they wash their hands and forearms, holding to the tradition of the elders.
 They don’t eat when they come from the marketplace unless they bathe themselves, and there are many other things which they have received to hold to: washings of cups, pitchers, bronze vessels, and couches.)
 The Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why don’t your disciples walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with unwashed hands?”
 He answered them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
 They worship me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’†
 “For you set aside the commandment of God, and hold tightly to the tradition of men—the washing of pitchers and cups, and you do many other such things.”
 He said to them, “Full well do you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.
 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother;’† and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’†
 But you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban,” ’ ”° that is to say, given to God,
 “then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or his mother,
 making void the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down. You do many things like this.”
 He called all the multitude to himself and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand.
 There is nothing from outside of the man that going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are those that defile the man.
 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!”°
 When he had entered into a house away from the multitude, his disciples asked him about the parable.
 He said to them, “Are you also without understanding? Don’t you perceive that whatever goes into the man from outside can’t defile him,
 because it doesn’t go into his heart, but into his stomach, then into the latrine, making all foods clean?”°
 He said, “That which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man.
 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, sexual sins, murders, thefts,
 covetings, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness.
 All these evil things come from within and defile the man.”
 From there he arose and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house and didn’t want anyone to know it, but he couldn’t escape notice.
 For a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down at his feet.
 Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter.
 But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
 But she answered him, “Yes, Lord. Yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
 He said to her, “For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter.”
 She went away to her house, and found the child having been laid on the bed, with the demon gone out.
 Again he departed from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the sea of Galilee through the middle of the region of Decapolis.
 They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hand on him.
 He took him aside from the multitude privately and put his fingers into his ears; and he spat and touched his tongue.
 Looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!”
 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke clearly.
 He commanded them that they should tell no one, but the more he commanded them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it.
 They were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear and the mute speak!”

Mark 7 (KJVS)
 Then G2532 came together G4863 (PresPasInd) unto G4314 him G846 the Pharisees G5330, and G2532 certain G5100 of the scribes G1122, which came G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) from G575 Jerusalem G2414.
 And G2532 when they saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) some G5100 of his G846 disciples G3101 eat G2068 (PresActPtc) bread G740 with defiled G2839, that is to say G5123 (PresInd), with unwashen G449, hands G5495, they found fault G3201 (AorMidDepInd).
 For G1063 the Pharisees G5330, and G2532 all G3956 the Jews G2453, except G3362 they wash G3538 (AorMidSubj) [their] hands G5495 oft G4435, eat G2068 (PresActInd) not G3756, holding G2902 (PresActPtc) the tradition G3862 of the elders G4245.
 And G2532 [when they come] from G575 the market G58, except G3362 they wash G907 (AorMidSubj), they eat G2068 (PresActInd) not G3756. And G2532 many G4183 other things G243 there be G2076 (PresInd), which G3739 they have received G3880 (Aor2ActInd) to hold G2902 (PresActInf), [as] the washing G909 of cups G4221, and G2532 pots G3582, G2532 brasen vessels G5473, and G2532 of tables G2825.
 Then G1899 the Pharisees G5330 and G2532 scribes G1122 asked G1905 (PresActInd) him G846, Why G1302 walk G4043 (PresActInd) not G3756 thy G4675 disciples G3101 according G2596 to the tradition G3862 of the elders G4245, but G235 eat G2068 (PresActInd) bread G740 with unwashen G449 hands G5495?
 He answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, G3754 Well G2573 hath Esaias G2268 prophesied G4395 (AorActInd) of G4012 you G5216 hypocrites G5273, as G5613 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), This G3778 people G2992 honoureth G5091 (PresActInd) me G3165 with [their] lips G5491, but G1161 their G846 heart G2588 is G568 (PresActInd) far G4206 from G575 me G1700.
 Howbeit G1161 in vain G3155 do they worship G4576 (PresMidPasDepInd) me G3165, teaching G1321 (PresActPtc) [for] doctrines G1319 the commandments G1778 of men G444.
 For G1063 laying aside G863 (Aor2ActPtc) the commandment G1785 of God G2316, ye hold G2902 (PresActInd) the tradition G3862 of men G444, [as] the washing G909 of pots G3582 and G2532 cups G4221: and G2532 many G4183 other G243 such G5108 like things G3946 ye do G4160 (PresActInd).
 And G2532 he said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846, Full well G2573 ye reject G114 (PresActInd) the commandment G1785 of God G2316, that G2443 ye may keep G5083 (AorActSubj) your own G5216 tradition G3862.
 For G1063 Moses G3475 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) thy G4675 father G3962 and G2532 thy G4675 mother G3384; and G2532, Whoso curseth G2551 (PresActPtc) father G3962 or G2228 mother G3384, let him die G5053 (PresActImpr) the death G2288:
 But G1161 ye G5210 say G3004 (PresActInd), If G1437 a man G444 shall say G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) to his father G3962 or G2228 mother G3384, [It is] Corban G2878, that is to say G3603, a gift G1435, by G1537 whatsoever G3739 G1437 thou mightest be profited by G5623 (AorPasSubj) me G1700; [he shall be free].
 And G2532 ye suffer G863 (PresActInd) him G846 no more G3765 to do G4160 (AorActInf) ought G3762 for his G846 father G3962 or G2228 his G846 mother G3384;
 Making G208 the word G3056 of God G2316 of none effect G208 (PresActPtc) through your G5216 tradition G3862, which G3739 ye have delivered G3860 (AorActInd): and G2532 many G4183 such G5108 like things G3946 do ye G4160 (PresActInd).
 And G2532 when he had called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) all G3956 the people G3793 [unto him], he said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846, Hearken G191 (PresActImpr) unto me G3450 every one G3956 [of you], and G2532 understand G4920 (PresActImpr):
 There is G2076 (PresInd) nothing G3762 from without G1855 a man G444, that G3739 entering G1531 (PresMidPasDepPtc) into G1519 him G846 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) defile G2840 (AorActInf) him G846: but G235 the things which come G1607 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G575 him G846, those G1565 are they G2076 (PresInd) that defile G2840 (PresActPtc) the man G444.
 If any man G1536 have G2192 (PresActInd) ears G3775 to hear G191 (PresActInf), let him hear G191 (PresActImpr).
 And G2532 when G3753 he was entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the house G3624 from G575 the people G3793, his G846 disciples G3101 asked G1905 (ImpfActInd) him G846 concerning G4012 the parable G3850.
 And G2532 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, Are G2075 (PresInd) ye G5210 so G3779 without understanding G801 also G2532? Do ye G3539 not G3756 perceive G3539 (PresActInd), that G3754 whatsoever thing G3956 from without G1855 entereth G1531 (PresMidPasDepPtc) into G1519 the man G444, [it] cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) defile G2840 (AorActInf) him G846;
 Because G3754 it entereth G1531 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756 into G1519 his G846 heart G2588, but G235 into G1519 the belly G2836, and G2532 goeth out G1607 (PresMidPasDepInd) into G1519 the draught G856, purging G2511 (PresActPtc) all G3956 meats G1033?
 And G1161 he said G3004 (ImpfActInd), G3754 That which cometh G1607 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G1537 the man G444, that G1565 defileth G2840 (PresActInd) the man G444.
 For G1063 from within G2081, out of G1537 the heart G2588 of men G444, proceed G1607 (PresMidPasDepInd) evil G2556 thoughts G1261, adulteries G3430, fornications G4202, murders G5408,
 Thefts G2829, covetousness G4124, wickedness G4189, deceit G1388, lasciviousness G766, an evil G4190 eye G3788, blasphemy G988, pride G5243, foolishness G877:
 All G3956 these G5023 evil things G4190 come G1607 (PresMidPasDepInd) from within G2081, and G2532 defile G2840 (PresActInd) the man G444.
 And G2532 from thence G1564 he arose G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and went G565 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the borders G3181 of Tyre G5184 and G2532 Sidon G4605, and G2532 entered G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 an house G3614, and would have G2309 (ImpfActInd) no man G3762 know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) [it]: but G2532 he could G1410 (AorPasDepInd) not G3756 be hid G2990 (Aor2ActInf).
 For G1063 a [certain] woman G1135, whose G3739 G846 young daughter G2365 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) an unclean G169 spirit G4151, heard G191 (AorActPtc) of G4012 him G846, and came G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) and fell G4363 (Aor2ActInd) at G4314 his G846 feet G4228:
 G1161 The woman G1135 was G2258 (ImpfInd) a Greek G1674, a Syrophenician G4949 by nation G1085; and G2532 she besought G2065 (ImpfActInd) him G846 that G2443 he would cast forth G1544 (PresActSubj) the devil G1140 out of G1537 her G846 daughter G2364.
 But G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto her G846, Let G863 (Aor2ActImpr) the children G5043 first G4412 be filled G5526 (AorPasInf): for G1063 it is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 meet G2570 to take G2983 (Aor2ActInf) the children’s G5043 bread G740, and G2532 to cast G906 (Aor2ActInf) [it] unto the dogs G2952.
 And G1161 she answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Yes G3483, Lord G2962: yet G2532 G1063 the dogs G2952 under G5270 the table G5132 eat G2068 (PresActInd) of G575 the children’s G3813 crumbs G5589.
 And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto her G846, For G1223 this G5126 saying G3056 go thy way G5217 (PresActImpr); the devil G1140 is gone G1831 (PerfActInd) out of G1537 thy G4675 daughter G2364.
 And G2532 when she was come G565 (Aor2ActPtc) to G1519 her G846 house G3624, she found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) the devil G1140 gone out G1831 (PerfActPtc), and G2532 her daughter G2364 laid G906 (PerfPasPtc) upon G1909 the bed G2825.
 And G2532 again G3825, departing G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) from G1537 the coasts G3725 of Tyre G5184 and G2532 Sidon G4605, he came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 the sea G2281 of Galilee G1056, through G303 the midst G3319 of the coasts G3725 of Decapolis G1179.
 And G2532 they bring G5342 (PresActInd) unto him G846 one that was deaf G2974, and had an impediment in his speech G3424; and G2532 they beseech G3870 (PresActInd) him G846 to G2443 put G2007 (Aor2ActSubj) his hand G5495 upon him G846.
 And G2532 he took G618 (Aor2MidPtc) him G846 aside G2596 G2398 from G575 the multitude G3793, and put G906 (Aor2ActInd) his G846 fingers G1147 into G1519 his G846 ears G3775, and G2532 he spit G4429 (AorActPtc), and touched G680 (AorMidDepInd) his G846 tongue G1100;
 And G2532 looking up G308 (AorActPtc) to G1519 heaven G3772, he sighed G4727 (AorActInd), and G2532 saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Ephphatha G2188, that is G3603, Be opened G1272 (AorPasImpr).
 And G2532 straightway G2112 his G846 ears G189 were opened G1272 (AorPasInd), and G2532 the string G1199 of his G846 tongue G1100 was loosed G3089 (AorPasInd), and G2532 he spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) plain G3723.
 And G2532 he charged G1291 (AorMidInd) them G846 that G2443 they should tell G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) no man G3367: but G1161 the more G3745 he G846 charged G1291 (ImpfMidInd) them G846, so much the more G3123 a great deal G4054 they published G2784 (ImpfActInd) [it];
 And G2532 were beyond measure G5249 astonished G1605 (ImpfPasInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), He hath done G4160 (PerfActInd) all things G3956 well G2573: he maketh G4160 (PresActInd) both G2532 the deaf G2974 to hear G191 (PresActInf), and G2532 the dumb G216 to speak G2980 (PresActInf).
Young’s Literal Translation
Mark 7 (YLT)
 And gathered together unto him are the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, having come from Jerusalem,
 and having seen certain of his disciples with defiled hands-that is, unwashed-eating bread, they found fault;
 for the Pharisees, and all the Jews, if they do not wash the hands to the wrist, do not eat, holding the tradition of the elders,
 and, coming from the market-place, if they do not baptize themselves, they do not eat; and many other things there are that they received to hold, baptisms of cups, and pots, and brazen vessels, and couches.
 Then question him do the Pharisees and the scribes, ‘Wherefore do thy disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but with unwashed hands do eat the bread?’
 and he answering said to them-‘Well did Isaiah prophesy concerning you, hypocrites, as it hath been written, This people with the lips doth honour Me, and their heart is far from Me;
 and in vain do they worship Me, teaching teachings, commands of men;
 for, having put away the command of God, ye hold the tradition of men, baptisms of pots and cups; and many other such like things ye do.’
 And he said to them, ‘Well do ye put away the command of God that your tradition ye may keep;
 for Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, He who is speaking evil of father or mother-let him die the death;
 and ye say, If a man may say to father or to mother, Korban (that is, a gift), is whatever thou mayest be profited out of mine,
 and no more do ye suffer him to do anything for his father or for his mother,
 setting aside the word of God for your tradition that ye delivered; and many such like things ye do.’
 And having called near all the multitude, he said to them, ‘Hearken to me, ye all, and understand;
 there is nothing from without the man entering into him that is able to defile him, but the things coming out from him, those are the things defiling the man.
 If any hath ears to hear-let him hear.’
 And when he entered into a house from the multitude, his disciples were questioning him about the simile,
 and he saith to them, ‘So also ye are without understanding! Do ye not perceive that nothing from without entering into the man is able to defile him?
 because it doth not enter into his heart, but into the belly, and into the drain it doth go out, purifying all the meats.’
 And he said-‘That which is coming out from the man, that doth defile the man;
 for from within, out of the heart of men, the evil reasonings do come forth, adulteries, whoredoms, murders,
 thefts, covetous desires, wickedness, deceit, arrogance, an evil eye, evil speaking, pride, foolishness;
 all these evils do come forth from within, and they defile the man.’
 And from thence having risen, he went away to the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and having entered into the house, he wished none to know, and he was not able to be hid,
 for a woman having heard about him, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having come, fell at his feet,-
 and the woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phenician by nation-and was asking him, that the demon he may cast forth out of her daughter.
 And Jesus said to her, ‘Suffer first the children to be filled, for it is not good to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to the little dogs.’
 And she answered and saith to him, ‘Yes, sir; for the little dogs also under the table do eat of the children’s crumbs.’
 And he said to her, ‘Because of this word go; the demon hath gone forth out of thy daughter;’
 and having come away to her house, she found the demon gone forth, and the daughter laid upon the couch.
 And again, having gone forth from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis,
 and they bring to him a deaf, stuttering man, and they call on him that he may put the hand on him.
 And having taken him away from the multitude by himself, he put his fingers to his ears, and having spit, he touched his tongue,
 and having looked to the heaven, he sighed, and saith to him, ‘Ephphatha,’ that is, ‘Be thou opened;’
 and immediately were his ears opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he was speaking plain.
 And he charged them that they may tell no one, but the more he was charging them, the more abundantly they were proclaiming it,
 and they were being beyond measure astonished, saying, ‘Well hath he done all things; both the deaf he doth make to hear, and the dumb to speak.’
