The King James Version Bible

Matthew 15:15-22

  1. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

  2. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

  3. Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

  4. But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

  5. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

  6. These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

  7. Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

  8. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
