<​1/​> Then came to Jesus Scribes & Pharisees which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do they <​thy​> Deciples transgress the traditions of of their the Elder? For, they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered & said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father & mother; & he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death which Moses shall appoint. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to Father or Mother, By whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me it is a gift from me, <​& honour not his father or Mother, it is well.​> Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none affect by your traditions. O! ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophecy of your <​you​>, Saying, This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, & honoureth me with their lips; but their hearts <​heart​> are <​is​> far from me.

1/ Then came to Jesus Scribes & Pharisees which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy Deciples transgress the traditions of the Elder? For, they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered & said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father & mother; & he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death which Moses shall appoint. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to Father or Mother, By whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me it is a gift from me, & honour not his father or Mother, it is well. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none affect by your traditions. O! ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophecy of you, Saying, This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, & honoureth me with lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teach 2/ ing the Doctrines & the commandments of men. 2/ & And he called the multitude & said unto them, Hear, & understand; not that which goeth into the mouth defileth the man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth the man. Then came his Deciples & said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered & said, Every plant, which my Heavenly hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone; they be blind leaders of the blind; & if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 3/ Then answered Peter & Said unto him, Declare unto us this Parable. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, & is cast into the drought? But those things which proceed out of the mouth, come forth from the heart; & they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adultery, fornication, thefts, false witness, blasphemy; these are things which defile a man; but but to eat with unwashen 4/ hands defileth not a man. 4/ Then Jesus went thence, & departed into the coasts of Tyre & Sidon. And Behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, & cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grieveously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. & And his Deciples came & besought him, Saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. He answered, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
