Matthew 15 (WEBP)

[1] Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying,
[2] “Why do your disciples disobey the tradition of the elders? For they don’t wash their hands when they eat bread.”
[3] He answered them, “Why do you also disobey the commandment of God because of your tradition?
[4] For God commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’
[5] But you say, ‘Whoever may tell his father or his mother, “Whatever help you might otherwise have gotten from me is a gift devoted to God,”
[6] he shall not honor his father or mother.’ You have made the commandment of God void because of your tradition.
[7] You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
[8] ‘These people draw near to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
[9] And they worship me in vain, teaching as doctrine rules made by men.’ ”
[10] He summoned the multitude, and said to them, “Hear, and understand.
[11] That which enters into the mouth doesn’t defile the man; but that which proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.”
[12] Then the disciples came and said to him, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?”
[13] But he answered, “Every plant which my heavenly Father didn’t plant will be uprooted.
[14] Leave them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. If the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
[15] Peter answered him, “Explain the parable to us.”
[16] So Jesus said, “Do you also still not understand?
[17] Don’t you understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the belly and then out of the body?
[18] But the things which proceed out of the mouth come out of the heart, and they defile the man.
[19] For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual sins, thefts, false testimony, and blasphemies.
[20] These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands doesn’t defile the man.”
[21] Jesus went out from there and withdrew into the region of Tyre and Sidon.
[22] Behold, a Canaanite woman came out from those borders and cried, saying, “Have mercy on me, Lord, you son of David! My daughter is severely possessed by a demon!”
[23] But he answered her not a word. His disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away; for she cries after us.”
[24] But he answered, “I wasn’t sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
[25] But she came and worshiped him, saying, “Lord, help me.”
[26] But he answered, “It is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
[27] But she said, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
[28] Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! Be it done to you even as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that hour.
[29] Jesus departed from there and came near to the sea of Galilee; and he went up on the mountain and sat there.
[30] Great multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others, and they put them down at his feet. He healed them,
[31] so that the multitude wondered when they saw the mute speaking, the injured healed, the lame walking, and the blind seeing—and they glorified the God of Israel.
[32] Jesus summoned his disciples and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have continued with me now three days and have nothing to eat. I don’t want to send them away fasting, or they might faint on the way.”
[33] The disciples said to him, “Where could we get so many loaves in a deserted place as to satisfy so great a multitude?”
[34] Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.”
[35] He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground;
[36] and he took the seven loaves and the fish. He gave thanks and broke them, and gave to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.
[37] They all ate and were filled. They took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces that were left over.
[38] Those who ate were four thousand men, in addition to women and children.
[39] Then he sent away the multitudes, got into the boat, and came into the borders of Magdala.

Matthew 15 (KJVS)

[1] Then G5119 came G4334 (PresMidPasDepInd) to Jesus G2424 scribes G1122 and G2532 Pharisees G5330, which were of G575 Jerusalem G2414, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[2] Why G1302 do thy G4675 disciples G3101 transgress G3845 (PresActInd) the tradition G3862 of the elders G4245? for G1063 they wash G3538 (PresMidInd) not G3756 their G846 hands G5495 when G3752 they eat G2068 (PresActSubj) bread G740.
[3] But G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Why G1302 do ye G5210 also G2532 transgress G3845 (PresActInd) the commandment G1785 of God G2316 by G1223 your G5216 tradition G3862?
[4] For G1063 God G2316 commanded G1781 (AorMidDepInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) thy G4675 father G3962 and G2532 mother G3384: and G2532, He that curseth G2551 (PresActPtc) father G3962 or G2228 mother G3384, let him die G5053 (PresActImpr) the death G2288.
[5] But G1161 ye G5210 say G3004 (PresActInd), Whosoever G3739 G302 shall say G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) to [his] father G3962 or G2228 [his] mother G3384, [It is] a gift G1435, by G1537 whatsoever G3739 G1437 thou mightest be profited G5623 (AorPasSubj) by me G1700;
[6] And G2532 honour G5091 (AorActSubj) not G3364 his G846 father G3962 or G2228 his G846 mother G3384, [he shall be free]. Thus G2532 have ye made G208 the commandment G1785 of God G2316 of none effect G208 (AorActInd) by G1223 your G5216 tradition G3862.
[7] [Ye] hypocrites G5273, well G2573 did G4395 Esaias G2268 prophesy G4395 (AorActInd) of G4012 you G5216, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[8] This G3778 people G2992 draweth nigh G1448 (PresActInd) unto me G3427 with their G846 mouth G4750, and G2532 honoureth G5091 (PresActInd) me G3165 with [their] lips G5491; but G1161 their G846 heart G2588 is G568 (PresActInd) far G4206 from G575 me G1700.
[9] But G1161 in vain G3155 they do worship G4576 (PresMidPasDepInd) me G3165, teaching G1321 (PresActPtc) [for] doctrines G1319 the commandments G1778 of men G444.
[10] And G2532 he called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) the multitude G3793, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Hear G191 (PresActImpr), and G2532 understand G4920 (PresActImpr):
[11] Not G3756 that which goeth G1525 (PresMidPasDepPtc) into G1519 the mouth G4750 defileth G2840 (PresActInd) a man G444; but G235 that which cometh G1607 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G1537 the mouth G4750, this G5124 defileth G2840 (PresActInd) a man G444.
[12] Then G5119 came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) his G846 disciples G3101, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Knowest thou G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 the Pharisees G5330 were offended G4624 (AorPasInd), after they heard G191 (AorActPtc) this saying G3056?
[13] But G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Every G3956 plant G5451, which G3739 my G3450 heavenly G3770 Father G3962 hath G5452 not G3756 planted G5452 (AorActInd), shall be rooted up G1610 (FutPasInd).
[14] Let G863 them G846 alone G863 (Aor2ActImpr): they be G1526 (PresInd) blind G5185 leaders G3595 of the blind G5185. And G1161 if G1437 the blind G5185 lead G3594 (PresActSubj) the blind G5185, both G297 shall fall G4098 (FutMidPasDepInd) into G1519 the ditch G999.
[15] Then G1161 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) Peter G4074 and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Declare G5419 (AorActImpr) unto us G2254 this G5026 parable G3850.
[16] And G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Are G2075 (PresInd) ye G5210 also G2532 yet G188 without understanding G801?
[17] Do G3539 not G3768 ye G3539 yet G3768 understand G3539 (PresActInd), that G3754 whatsoever G3956 entereth in G1531 (PresMidPasDepPtc) at G1519 the mouth G4750 goeth G5562 (PresActInd) into G1519 the belly G2836, and G2532 is cast out G1544 (PresPasInd) into G1519 the draught G856?
[18] But G1161 those things which G3588 proceed G1607 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G1537 the mouth G4750 come forth G1831 (PresMidPasDepInd) from G1537 the heart G2588; and they G2548 defile G2840 (PresActInd) the man G444.
[19] For G1063 out of G1537 the heart G2588 proceed G1831 (PresMidPasDepInd) evil G4190 thoughts G1261, murders G5408, adulteries G3430, fornications G4202, thefts G2829, false witness G5577, blasphemies G988:
[20] These G5023 are G2076 (PresInd) [the things] which G3588 defile G2840 (PresActPtc) a man G444: but G1161 to eat G5315 (Aor2ActInf) with unwashen G449 hands G5495 defileth G2840 (PresActInd) not G3756 a man G444.
[21] Then G2532 Jesus G2424 went G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) thence G1564, and departed G402 (AorActInd) into G1519 the coasts G3313 of Tyre G5184 and G2532 Sidon G4605.
[22] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), a woman G1135 of Canaan G5478 came G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) out of G575 the same G1565 coasts G3725, and cried G2905 (AorActInd) unto him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Have mercy G1653 (AorActImpr) on me G3165, O Lord G2962, [thou] Son G5207 of David G1138; my G3450 daughter G2364 is grievously G2560 vexed with a devil G1139 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[23] But G1161 he answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) her G846 not G3756 a word G3056. And G2532 his G846 disciples G3101 came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) and besought G2065 (ImpfActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Send G630 her G846 away G630 (AorActImpr); for G3754 she crieth G2896 (PresActInd) after G3693 us G2257.
[24] But G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), I am G649 not G3756 sent G649 (Aor2PasDepSubj) but G1508 unto G1519 the lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc) sheep G4263 of the house G3624 of Israel G2474.
[25] Then G1161 came she G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) and worshipped G4352 (ImpfActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, help G997 (PresActImpr) me G3427.
[26] But G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), 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] to dogs G2952.
[27] And G1161 she said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Truth G3483, Lord G2962: yet G2532 G1063 the dogs G2952 eat G2068 (PresActInd) of G575 the crumbs G5589 which G3588 fall G4098 (PresActPtc) from G575 their G846 masters G2962’ table G5132.
[28] Then G5119 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto her G846, O G5599 woman G1135, great G3173 [is] thy G4675 faith G4102: be it G1096 (AorPasDepImpr) unto thee G4671 even as G5613 thou wilt G2309 (PresActInd). And G2532 her G846 daughter G2364 was made whole G2390 (AorPasInd) from G575 that very G1565 hour G5610.
[29] And G2532 Jesus G2424 departed G3327 (Aor2ActPtc) from thence G1564, and came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) nigh unto G3844 the sea G2281 of Galilee G1056; and G2532 went up G305 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 a mountain G3735, and sat down G2521 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) there G1563.
[30] And G2532 great G4183 multitudes G3793 came G4334 (AorActInd) unto him G846, having G2192 (PresActPtc) with G3326 them [those that were] G1438 lame G5560, blind G5185, dumb G2974, maimed G2948, and G2532 many G4183 others G2087, and G2532 cast G4496 them G846 down G4496 (AorActInd) at G3844 Jesus G2424’ feet G4228; and G2532 he healed G2323 (AorActInd) them G846:
[31] Insomuch that G5620 the multitude G3793 wondered G2296 (AorActInf), when they saw G991 (PresActPtc) the dumb G2974 to speak G2980 (PresActPtc), the maimed G2948 to be whole G5199, the lame G5560 to walk G4043 (PresActPtc), and G2532 the blind G5185 to see G991 (PresActPtc): and G2532 they glorified G1392 (AorActInd) the God G2316 of Israel G2474.
[32] Then G1161 Jesus G2424 called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) his G846 disciples G3101 [unto him], and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), I have compassion G4697 (PresMidPasDepInd) on G1909 the multitude G3793, because G3754 they continue G4357 (PresActInd) with me G3427 now G2235 three G5140 days G2250, and G2532 have G2192 (PresActInd) nothing G3756 G5101 to eat G5315 (Aor2ActSubj): and G2532 I will G2309 (PresActInd) not G3756 send G630 them G846 away G630 (AorActInf) fasting G3523, lest G3379 they faint G1590 (AorPasSubj) in G1722 the way G3598.
[33] And G2532 his G846 disciples G3101 say G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Whence G4159 should we G2254 have so much G5118 bread G740 in G1722 the wilderness G2047, as G5620 to fill G5526 (AorActInf) so great G5118 a multitude G3793?
[34] And G2532 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, How many G4214 loaves G740 have ye G2192 (PresActInd)? And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Seven G2033, and G2532 a few G3641 little fishes G2485.
[35] And G2532 he commanded G2753 (AorActInd) the multitude G3793 to sit down G377 (Aor2ActInf) on G1909 the ground G1093.
[36] And G2532 he took G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) the seven G2033 loaves G740 and G2532 the fishes G2486, and gave thanks G2168 (AorActPtc), and brake G2806 (AorActInd) [them], and G2532 gave G1325 (AorActInd) to his G846 disciples G3101, and G1161 the disciples G3101 to the multitude G3793.
[37] And G2532 they did G5315 all G3956 eat G5315 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 were filled G5526 (AorPasInd): and G2532 they took up G142 (AorActInd) of the broken G2801 [meat] that was left G4052 (PresActPtc) seven G2033 baskets G4711 full G4134.
[38] And G1161 they that did eat G2068 (PresActPtc) were G2258 (ImpfInd) four thousand G5070 men G435, beside G5565 women G1135 and G2532 children G3813.
[39] And G2532 he sent away G630 (AorActPtc) the multitude G3793, and took G1684 (Aor2ActInd) ship G1519 G4143, and G2532 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the coasts G3725 of Magdala G3093.

Young’s Literal Translation

Matthew 15 (YLT)

[1] Then come unto Jesus do they from Jerusalem-scribes and Pharisees-saying,
[2] ‘Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they do not wash their hands when they may eat bread.’
[3] And he answering said to them, ‘Wherefore also do ye transgress the command of God because of your tradition?
[4] for God did command, saying, Honour thy father and mother; and, He who is speaking evil of father or mother-let him die the death;
[5] but ye say, Whoever may say to father or mother, An offering is whatever thou mayest be profited by me;-
[6] and he may not honour his father or his mother, and ye did set aside the command of God because of your tradition.
[7] ‘Hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
[8] This people doth draw nigh to Me with their mouth, and with the lips it doth honour Me, but their heart is far off from Me;
[9] and in vain do they worship Me, teaching teachings-commands of men.’
[10] And having called near the multitude, he said to them, ‘Hear and understand:
[11] not that which is coming into the mouth doth defile the man, but that which is coming forth from the mouth, this defileth the man.’
[12] Then his disciples having come near, said to him, ‘Hast thou known that the Pharisees, having heard the word, were stumbled?’
[13] And he answering said, ‘Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant shall be rooted up;
[14] let them alone, guides they are-blind of blind; and if blind may guide blind, both into a ditch shall fall.’
[15] And Peter answering said to him, ‘Explain to us this simile.’
[16] And Jesus said, ‘Are ye also yet without understanding?
[17] do ye not understand that all that is going into the mouth doth pass into the belly, and into the drain is cast forth?
[18] but the things coming forth from the mouth from the heart do come forth, and these defile the man;
[19] for out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, whoredoms, thefts, false witnessings, evil speakings:
[20] these are the things defiling the man; but to eat with unwashen hands doth not defile the man.’
[21] And Jesus having come forth thence, withdrew to the parts of Tyre and Sidon,
[22] and lo, a woman, a Canaanitess, from those borders having come forth, did call to him, saying, ‘Deal kindly with me, Sir-Son of David; my daughter is miserably demonized.’
[23] And he did not answer her a word; and his disciples having come to him, were asking him, saying-‘Let her away, because she crieth after us;’
[24] and he answering said, ‘I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.’
[25] And having come, she was bowing to him, saying, ‘Sir, help me;’
[26] and he answering said, ‘It is not good to take the children’s bread, and to cast to the little dogs.’
[27] And she said, ‘Yes, sir, for even the little dogs do eat of the crumbs that are falling from their lords’ table;’
[28] then answering, Jesus said to her, ‘O woman, great is thy faith, let it be to thee as thou wilt;’ and her daughter was healed from that hour.
[29] And Jesus having passed thence, came nigh unto the sea of Galilee, and having gone up to the mountain, he was sitting there,
[30] and there came to him great multitudes, having with them lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they did cast them at the feet of Jesus, and he healed them,
[31] so that the multitudes did wonder, seeing dumb ones speaking, maimed whole, lame walking, and blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.
[32] And Jesus having called near his disciples, said, ‘I have compassion upon the multitude, because now three days they continue with me, and they have not what they may eat; and to let them away fasting I will not, lest they faint in the way.’
[33] And his disciples say to him, ‘Whence to us, in a wilderness, so many loaves, as to fill so great a multitude?’
[34] And Jesus saith to them, ‘How many loaves have ye?’ and they said, ‘Seven, and a few little fishes.’
[35] And he commanded the multitudes to sit down upon the ground,
[36] and having taken the seven loaves and the fishes, having given thanks, he did break, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
[37] And they did all eat, and were filled, and they took up what was over of the broken pieces seven baskets full,
[38] and those eating were four thousand men, apart from women and children.
[39] And having let away the multitudes, he went into the boat, and did come to the borders of Magdala.
