Matthew 15 ©
Christ reproveth the scribes and Pharisees for setting their own traditions above the commandments of God. He teacheth that not that which goeth into the mouth, but that which cometh out of it, defileth a man. He healeth the daughter of a woman of Canaan; and great multitudes near the sea of Galilee. He feedeth more than four thousand with seven loaves and a few small fishes.
THEN acame to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. eThus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
uAnd, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same *coasts, and cried unto him, saying, vHave mercy on me, O Lord, thou wSon of David; my daughter is xgrievously vexed with a devil.
gThen Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, hgreat is thy faith: ibe it unto thee even as thou wilt. jAnd her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
kAnd Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
lAnd great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
¶nThen Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, oI have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
And Jesus saith unto them, qHow many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
