A. D. 32.
MATT. XV. 9, 10,
vanities but fear thou God, Eccles. v. 2-7. Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear your hands are full of blood, Isa. i. 13-15. Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God. Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours, lviii. 1-3. Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? Mal. iii. 14. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men, Mark vii. 7. By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain, 1 Cor. xv. 2.
What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto nor diminish from it, Deut. xii. 32. Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar, Prov. xxx. 5, 6. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Wherefore if ye be dead with
A. D. 32.
| Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances; (Touch not; taste not; handle not; which all are to perish with the using ;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? Col. ii. 18-22. Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying, which is in faith: so do, 1 Tim. i. 4. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth, iv. 1. 3. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness, 6, 7. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth, Tit. i. 13, 14. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein, Heb. xiii. 9. For I testify to every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book, Rev. xxii. 18.

they that defile the man. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear, Mark vii. 14-16.
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side, Matt. xiii. 19. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not, Isa. vi. 9. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David, Iv. 3. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures, Luke xxiv. 45. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, Eph. i. 17, 18. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, Col. i. 9. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him, Jam. i. 5.
A. D. 32. that made that which is without, make that which is within also? But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you, Luke xi. 38-41. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common, Acts x. 14, 15. But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call thou not common, xi. 8, 9. I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean, Rom. xiv. 14. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost, 17. For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence, 20. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer, 1 Tim. iv. 4, 5.
Unto the pure all things are pure; but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled, Tit. i. 15. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profted them that have been occupied therein, Heb. xiii. 9.
b But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man, ver. 18-20. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto

in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit ini
Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD, Jer. ix. 3-6. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness, Rom. iii. 13, 14. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison, Jam. iii. 5-8. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error, 2 Pet. ii. 18.
you, That every idle word that men
Τότε προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ, εἶπον αὐτῷ· οἶδας ὅτι οἱ Φαρισαῖοι, ἀκούσαντες τὸν λόγον, ἐσκανδαλίσθησαν;
Then came his disciples, and said unto him, a Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
a See on clause 2. ver. 6. chap. xi.
Ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς, εἶπε· Πᾶσα φυτεία voix iqúteusev i warhp μov ò oigávior, ἐκριζωθήσεται.
But he answered und said, 'Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
a As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of
his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, Matt. xiii. 40, 41. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God, Psal. xcii. 13. Thy people also shall be all righteous : they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified, Isa. Ix. 21. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit, John xv. 2. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire, 1 Cor. iii.
*Αφετε αὐτούς· ὁδηγοί εἰσι τυφλοί τυφλῶν. τυφλὸς δὲ τυφλὸν ἐὰν ὁδηγῇ, ἀμφότεροι εἰς βόθυνον πεσοῦνται.
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
a Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone, Hos. iv. 17. Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself, 1 Tim. vi. 5.
A. D. 32.
sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber, lvi. 10. And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? Luke vi. 39.
c The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof? Jer. v. 31. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them, they shall be cast down, saith the LORD, vi. 15. Were they ashamed when they had commited abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall; in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD, viii. 12. And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people ment of their iniquity: the punishment Israel. And they shall bear the punishof the prophet shall be even as the pu
nishment of him that seeketh unto him, Ezek. xiv. 9, 10. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction, 2 Pet. ii. 1. These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever, 17. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone, Rev. xix. 20. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie, xxii. 15.
b Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Matt. xxiii. 16. Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother, Isa. ix. 19. And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them, xlii. 16. His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they ̓Αποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ Πέτρος, εἶπεν αὐτῷ· are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark ; | Φράσον ἡμῖν τὴν παραβολὴν ταύτην.
Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
Ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν· ̓Ακμὴν καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀσύνετοί ἐστε ;
And Jesus said, a Are ye also yet without understanding?
a And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand, ver. 10. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord, xiii. 51. Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducess? xvi. 9. 11. Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little, Isa. xxviii. 9, 10. 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, Mark vii. 18. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? viii. 17, 18. But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him, ix. 32. But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying, Luke ix. 45. And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken, xviii. 34. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures, xxiv. 45. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat, Heb. v. 12.
A. D. 32.
Οὔπω νοεῖτε, ὅτι πᾶν τὸ εἰσπορευόμενον εἰς τὸ στόμα, εἰς τὴν κοιλίαν χωρεῖ, καὶ εἰς ἀφεδρῶνα ἐκβάλλεται ;
Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
a Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man, Mark vii. 19, 20. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body, 1 Cor. vi. 13.
Τὰ δὲ ἐκπορευόμενα ἐκ τοῦ στόματος, ἐκ τῆς καρδίας ἐξέρχεται, κακεῖνα κοινοί τὸν ἄνθρωπον.
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
a Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man, ver. 11. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh, xii. 34. As saith the proverb of the ancients, Wickedness proceedeth from the wicked: but mine hand shall not be upon thee, 1 Sam. xxiv. 13. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good, Psal. xxxvi. 3. A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth, Prov. vi. 12. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness, x. 32. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness, xv. 2. The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things, 28. And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not
