7 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

7 1Now when the Pharisees gathered together to him, with some of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem,The Tradition of the Elders Mk.7.1-23 (Capernaum) | Mt.15.1-20Καὶ συνάγονται πρὸς αὐτὸν οἱ Φαρισαῖοι καί τινες τῶν γραμματέων ἐλθόντες ἀπὸ Ἱεροσολύμων
2they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands defiled, that is, unwashed. καὶ ἰδόντες τινὰς τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ὅτι κοιναῖς χερσίν, τοῦτ' ἐστιν ἀνίπτοις, ἐσθίουσιν τοὺς ἀρτους
3(For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they wash their hands, One Greek word is of uncertain meaning and is not translated observing the tradition of the elders; - οἱ γὰρ Φαρισαῖοι καὶ πάντες οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι ἐὰν μὴ πυγμῇ νίψωνται τὰς χεῖρας οὐκ ἐσθίουσιν, κρατοῦντες τὴν παράδοσιν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων,
4and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they purify Other ancient authorities read: baptize themselves Other ancient authorities read: and they do not eat anything from the market unless they purify it; and there are many other traditions which they observe, the washing of cups and pots and vessels of bronze Other ancient authorities add: and beds.) καὶ ἀπ' ἀγορᾶς ἐὰν μὴ βαπτίσωνται οὐκ ἐσθίουσιν, καὶ ἀλλα πολλά ἐστιν ἂ παρέλαβον κρατεῖν, βαπτισμοὺς ποτηρίων καὶ ξεστῶν καὶ χαλκίων καὶ κλινῶν -
5And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, "Why do your disciples not live Greek: walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with hands defiled?" καὶ ἐπερωτῶσιν αὐτὸν οἱ Φαρισαῖοι καὶ οἱ γραμματεῖς, Διὰ τί οὐ περιπατοῦσιν οἱ μαθηταί σου κατὰ τὴν παράδοσιν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων, ἀλλὰ κοιναῖς χερσὶν ἐσθίουσιν τὸν ἀρτον;
6And he said to 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;

- This people honours me with their lips Mk.7.6-7 | Is.29.13ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Καλῶς ἐπροφήτευσεν Ἠσαΐας περὶ ὑμῶν τῶν ὑποκριτῶν, ὡς γέγραπται ὁτι

Οὗτος ὁ λαὸς τοῖς χείλεσίν με τιμᾷ,
ἡ δὲ καρδία αὐτῶν πόρρω ἀπέχει ἀπ' ἐμοῦ·

7in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'
 μάτην δὲ σέβονταί με,
διδάσκοντες διδασκαλίας ἐντάλματα ἀνθρώπων.
8You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men." ἀφέντες τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ θεοῦ κρατεῖτε τὴν παράδοσιν τῶν ἀνθρώπων.
9And he said to them, "You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God, in order to keep your tradition! Καὶ ἐλεγεν αὐτοῖς, Καλῶς ἀθετεῖτε τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα τὴν παράδοσιν ὑμῶν στήσητε.
10For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die';- Honor your father and your mother Mk.7.10 | Ex.20.12 | Dt.5.16Μωϋσῆς γὰρ εἶπεν, Tίμα τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ τὴν μητέρα σου, καί Ὁ κακολογῶν πατέρα ἢ μητέρα θανάτῳ τελευτάτω·
11but you say, 'If a man tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is Corban' (that is, given to God) Or: an offering ὑμεῖς δὲ λέγετε, Ἐὰν εἰπῃ ἄνθρωπος τῷ πατρὶ ἢ τῇ μητρί, Κορβᾶν, ὁ ἐστιν, Δῶρον, ὃ ἐὰν ἐξ ἐμοῦ ὠφεληθῇς,
12then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother, οὐκέτι ἀφίετε αὐτὸν οὐδὲν ποιῆσαι τῷ πατρὶ ἢ τῇ μητρί,
13thus making void the word of God through your tradition which you hand on. And many such things you do." ἀκυροῦντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ τῇ παραδόσει ὑμῶν ᾗ παρεδώκατε· καὶ παρόμοια τοιαῦτα πολλὰ ποιεῖτε.
14And he called the people to him again, and said to them, "Hear me, all of you, and understand: Καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος πάλιν τὸν ὀχλον ἐλεγεν αὐτοῖς, Ἀκούσατέ μου πάντες καὶ σύνετε.
15there is nothing outside a man which by going into him can defile him; but the things which come out of a man are what defile him." οὐδέν ἐστιν ἐξωθεν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου εἰσπορευόμενον εἰς αὐτὸν ὃ δύναται κοινῶσαι αὐτόν· ἀλλὰ τὰ ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκπορευόμενά ἐστιν τὰ κοινοῦντα τὸν ἄνθρωπον.
16 Other ancient authorities add verse 16 ... If any man has ears to hear, let him hear" 
17And when he had entered the house, and left the people, his disciples asked him about the parable. Καὶ ὅτε εἰσῆλθεν εἰς οἶκον ἀπὸ τοῦ ὀχλου, ἐπηρώτων αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ τὴν παραβολήν.
18And he said to them, "Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a man from outside cannot defile him, καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Οὑτως καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀσύνετοί ἐστὲ οὐ νοεῖτε ὅτι πᾶν τὸ ἐξωθεν εἰσπορευόμενον εἰς τὸν ἄνθρωπον οὐ δύναται αὐτὸν κοινῶσαι,
19since it enters, not his heart but his stomach, and so passes on? Or: is evacuated" (Thus he declared all foods clean.) ὁτι οὐκ εἰσπορεύεται αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν καρδίαν ἀλλ' εἰς τὴν κοιλίαν, καὶ εἰς τὸν ἀφεδρῶνα ἐκπορεύεταὶ - καθαρίζων πάντα τὰ βρώματα.
20And he said, "What comes out of a man is what defiles a man. ἐλεγεν δὲ ὅτι Τὸ ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκπορευόμενον ἐκεῖνο κοινοῖ τὸν ἄνθρωπον·
21For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, ἐσωθεν γὰρ ἐκ τῆς καρδίας τῶν ἀνθρώπων οἱ διαλογισμοὶ οἱ κακοὶ ἐκπορεύονται, πορνεῖαι, κλοπαί, φόνοι,
22coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. μοιχεῖαι, πλεονεξίαι, πονηρίαι, δόλος, ἀσέλγεια, ὀφθαλμὸς πονηρός, βλασφημία, ὑπερηφανία, ἀφροσύνη·
23All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man." πάντα ταῦτα τὰ πονηρὰ ἐσωθεν ἐκπορεύεται καὶ κοινοῖ τὸν ἄνθρωπον.
