The Book of Mark

Return to IndexHenry's Commentary

Chapter 7

1

Then 1came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
1 Matt 15:1

2

And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

3

For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

4

And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of 1cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
1 Matt 23:25, Luke 11:39

5

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the 1tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
1 Matt 15:2, Gal 1:14

6

He answered and said unto them, 1Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, 2 This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
1 Matt 15:7
2 Isa 29:13 Matt 15:8

7

Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Isa 29:13 Matt 15:9

8

For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

9

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

10

For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
Ex 20:12, 21:17

11

1But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
1 Matt 15:5

12

And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

13

Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

14

And when 1he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
1 Matt 15:10

15

There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

16

If any man have 1ears to hear, let him hear.
1 Matt 11:15, Matt 13:9, Matt 13:43, Mark 4:9, Mark 4:23, Luke 8:8, Rev 2:7, Rev 2:11, Rev 2:17, Rev 2:29, Rev 3:6, Rev 3:13, Rev 3:22, Rev 13:9

17

And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples 1asked him concerning the parable.
1 Matt 15:15

18

And he saith unto them, Are ye so without 1understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
1 Matt 15:16, Matt 16:9

19

Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all ameats?

20

And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.

21

For from within, out of the 1heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
1 Gen 6:5, Gen 8:21, Prov 6:14, Jer 17:9, Matt 5:28, Matt 15:19

22

Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

23

All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

24

And from 1thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.
1 Matt 15:21

25

For a certain 1woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
1 Matt 15:22

26

The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

27

But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the 1dogs.
1 Matt 7:6, Matt 15:26, Phil 3:2, Rev 22:15

28

And 1she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.
1 Matt 15:27

29

And he 1said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
1 Matt 15:28

30

And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

31

And again, 1departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
1 Matt 15:29

32

And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.

33

And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

34

And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

35

And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

36

And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they 1published it;
1 Matt 9:31

37

And were beyond measure 1astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
1 Matt 15:31
