And when they saw certain of his disciples eat bread with common hands (that is to say, with unwashen hands) they complained. And when they saw some of his disciples eat meat with common hands, (that is to say unwashen) they complained. And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled (that is to say, with unwashen) hands, they found fault.
7:3 For the Pharisees and all the Jews eat not, but they wash oft their hands, holding the traditions of elder men. For the pharises, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, observing the traditions of the seniours.

7:4 And when they turn again from the market, they eat not, but they be washed; and many other things there be, that be taken to them to keep, washings of cups and cruets, and of vessels of brass, and of beds. And when they come from the market, except they wash themselves they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have taken upon them to observe, as the washing of cups and cruses, and of brasen vessels, and of tables.

7:5 And Pharisees and scribes asked him, and saying, Why go not thy disciples after the tradition of elder men, but with unwashen hands they eat bread? Then asked him the pharises and scribes: why walk not thy disciples according to the traditions of the seniours, but eat bread with unwashen hands? Then asked him the Pharises and Scribes, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the Elders, but eat meat with unwashen hands?

7:6 And he answered, and said to them, Esaias prophesied well of you, hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with lips, but their heart is far from me; He answered and said unto them well prophesied hath Esaias of you hypocrites as it is written: This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me: Then he answered and said unto them, Surely Esaias hath prophesied well of you, hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far away from me. He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you Hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7:7 in vain truly they worship me, teaching the doctrines and commandments of men. In vain they worship me, teaching doctrines which are nothing but the commandments of men, But they worship me in vain, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.
7:8 Forsooth ye forsaking the commandment of God, hold the traditions of men, washings of cruets, and cups; and many other things like to these ye do. for ye lay the commandment of God apart, and ye observe the traditions of men as the washing of cruses and of cups, and many other such like things ye do. For ye lay the commandment of God apart, and observe the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and of cups, & many other such like things ye do. 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.
7:9 And he said to them, Well ye have made the commandment of God void, that ye keep your tradition. And he said unto them: well, ye put away the commandment of God, to maintain your own traditions. And he said unto them, Well, ye reject the commandment of God that ye may observe your own tradition. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the Commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
7:10 For Moses said, Honour thou thy father and thy mother; and he that curseth father or mother, die he by death.

7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to father or mother, Corban, that is, Whatever gift is of me, it shall profit to thee; But ye say: a man shall say to his father or mother Corban, that is, whatsoever thing I offer, that same doth profit thee. But ye say, If a man say to father or mother, Corban, that is, By the gift that is offered by me, thou mayest have profit, he shall be free. But 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.
7:12 and further ye suffer not him to do any thing to father or mother, And ye suffer no more that a man do any thing for his father or mother, So ye suffer him no more to do any thing for his father, or his mother, And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father, or his mother:
7:13 breaking the word of God by your tradition, which ye have given; and ye do many other such things. and thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect through your own traditions which ye have ordained. And many such things ye do. Making the word of God of none authority, by your tradition which ye have ordained: and ye do many such like things. Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: And many such like things do ye.

And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand.
7:15 Nothing without man is entering into him, that may defoul him; but those things that come forth of a man, those it be that defoul a man. there is nothing without a man that can defile him when it entereth into him, but those things which proceed out of a man are those which defile a man. There is nothing without a man, that can defile him, when it entereth into him: but the things which proceed out of him, are they which defile the man. 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.

7:18 And he saith to them, So Ye be unwise also. Understand ye not, that all things withoutforth that entereth into a man, may not defoul him? and he said unto them: Do ye than lack understanding: Do ye not yet perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into a man, it cannot defile him, And he said unto them, What? are ye without understanding also? Do ye not know that whatsoever thing from without entereth into a man, cannot defile him, And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him,
7:19 for it hath not entered into his heart, but into the womb, and beneath it goeth out, purging all meats. because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly: and goeth out into the draught that purgeth out all meats. Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught which is the purging of all meats? Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
