Pristine Grace

Mt 15:1-20, (LITV)
1  Then the scribes and Pharisees came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying,
2  Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.
3  But answering He said to them, Why do you also transgress the command of God on account of your tradition?
4  For God commanded, saying, "Honor your father and mother," Ex. 20:12; Deut. 5:16 and, "The one speaking evil of father or mother, by death let him die." Ex. 21:17
5  But you say, Whoever says to the father or the mother, A gift, whatever you would gain from me;
6  and in no way he honors his father or his mother. And you annulled the command of God on account of your tradition.
7  Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy concerning you, saying:
8  "This people draws near to Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me; but their heart holds far off from Me.
9  But in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men." Isa. 29:13
10  And calling the crowd near, He said to them, Hear and understand:
11   It is not the thing entering into the mouth that defiles the man, but the thing coming forth out of the mouth, this defiles the man.
12  Then coming, the disciples said to Him, You know that hearing the Word, the Pharisees were offended?
13  But answering, He said, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.
14  Leave them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind; and if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.
15  And answering, Peter said to Him, Explain this parable to us.
16  But Jesus said, Are you also still without understanding?
17  Do you not yet perceive that everything entering into the mouth goes into the belly, and is thrown out into the waste bowl?
18  But the things which come out of the mouth come forth from the heart, and these defile the man.
19  For out of the heart come forth reasonings, evil things, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, lies, blasphemies.
20  These things are the things defiling the man. But eating with unwashed hands does not defile the man.
