Matthew 15:1 Then came vnto him the scribes and pharises from Ierusalem, sayenge: Matthew 15:2 Why do thy disciples transgresse ye tradicions of the elders? for they wash not their hodes whan they eate bred.
Christ reproveth the scribes and Pharisees for transgressing God's Commandments through their own traditions:
Matthew 15:3 He answered & sayde vnto the: Why do ye transgresse the comaundemet of God, because of youre owne tradicios? Matthew 15:4 For God comaunded, sayege: Honoure father & mother: & he yt curseth father & mother, shal dye the death. Matthew 15:5 But ye saye: Euery man shal saye to father or mother: The thige yt I shulde helpe ye withal, is geue vnto God. Matthew 15:6 By this is it come to passe, that no man honoureth his father or his mother eny more. And thus haue ye made the comaundement of God of none effecte, for youre owne tradicios. Matthew 15:7 Ye ypocrites, full well hath Esaye prophecied of you, & sayde: Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nye vnto me wt their mouth, & honoureth me wt their lippes, howbeit, their hert is farre fro me. Matthew 15:9 But in vayne do they serue me, whyle they teach soch doctrynes as are nothinge but the commaundementes of men.
Matthew 15:10 And he called ye people to hi, & saide vnto the: Heare & vnderstode:
teacheth how that which goeth into the mouth doth not defile a man.
Matthew 15:11 That which goeth in to the mouth, defyleth not the ma: but yt which cometh out of the mouth, defyleth ye ma. Matthew 15:12 Then came his disciples, & sayde vnto him: knowest thou yt the Pharises were offended, whan they herde this sayenge? Matthew 15:13 He answered, and sayde: All plantes which my heauenly father hath not planted, shal be pluckte vp by ye rotes. Matthew 15:14 Let the go, they are ye blynde leaders of ye blynde. Wha one blinde leadeth another, they fall both i ye diche. Matthew 15:15 Then answered Peter & sayde vnto him: Declare vnto us this parable. Matthew 15:16 And Iesus sayde vnto the: Are ye yet the without vnderstondinge? Matthew 15:17 Perceaue ye not, yt what soeuer goeth in at ye mouth, descedeth downe in to ye bely, & is cast out into the draught? Matthew 15:18 But the thinge that proceadeth out of the mouth, cometh fro ye hert, & that defyleth ye ma. Matthew 15:19 For out of ye hert come euell thoughtes murthur, breakynge of wedlocke, whordome theft, false witnesse, blasphemy. Matthew 15:20 These are ye thinges that defyle a man. But to eate wt vnwasshen hondes, defyleth not a man.
He healeth the daughter of the woman of Canaan,
Matthew 15:21 And Iesus wente out from thence, & departed in to the coastes of Tyre of Sidon. Matthew 15:22 And beholde, a woma of Canaan wete out of ye same coastes, & cried after him, sayege: O LORDE, thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercy vpon me. My doughter is sore vexed wt a deuell. Matthew 15:23 And he answered her neuer a worde. The came his disciples vnto him, & besought him, sayege: Sede her awaye, for she crieth after us. Matthew 15:24 But he answered, & saide: I am not sent, but vnto the lost shepe of the house of Israel. Matthew 15:25 Notwithstondinge she came & fell downe before him, & sayde: LORDE, helpe me. Matthew 15:26 He answered & sayde: It is not good, to take the childrens bred, & to cast it vnto dogges. Matthew 15:27 It is trueth LORDE (sayde she) Neuertheles the whelpes eate of the crommes, that fall fro their lordes table. Matthew 15:28 Then answered Iesus & sayde vnto her: O woma, greate is yi faith be it vnto the, eue as thou desyrest. And hir doughter was made hole at ye same houre. Matthew 15:29 And Iesus departed thece, and came nye vnto the see of Galile, and wente vp in to a mountayne, and sat downe there,
and other great multitudes:
Matthew 15:30 And there came vnto him moch people, hauinge with them, lame, blynde, dome, crepell, and other many, and cast them downe at Iesus fete. And he healed the, Matthew 15:31 in so moch that the people wodred, to se the dome speake, the crepell whole, the halt to go, & the blynde to se. And they praysed the God of Israel.
and with seven loaves and a few little fishes feedeth four thousand men, beside women and children.
Matthew 15:32 And Iesus called his disciples vnto him, & sayde: I haue copassion vpon the people, for they haue cotynued wt me now thre dayes, & haue nothinge to eate, & I wil not let the departe fastynge, lest they perishe in ye waye. Matthew 15:33 And his disciples sayde vnto him: Whence shulde we get so moch bred in the wyldernes, that we might satissfie so moch people? Matthew 15:34 And Iesus sayde vnto the: How many loaues haue ye? They sayde: seue, & a few litle fyshes. Matthew 15:35 And he comaunded ye people to syt downe vpo the grounde, Matthew 15:36 and toke ye seue loaues, & the fyshes, & gaue thankes & brake the, & gaue the to his disciples, & ye disciples gaue the vnto the people. Matthew 15:37 And they all ate, & were suffised. And they toke vp of the broke meate yt was left, seuen basskettes full. Matthew 15:38 And they yt ate, were foure thousande me, besyde wemen and children. Matthew 15:39 And whan he had sent awaye the people, he wente in to a shippe, & came in to the parties of Magdala.
