聖馬爾谷福音 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

那時候,法利塞人,及一些從耶路撒冷來的經師,聚集到耶穌面前。他們看見耶穌的幾個門徒,用不潔的手,就是用沒有洗過的手吃飯。

原來,法利塞人和所有猶太人,都拘守先人的傳統:若不仔細洗手,就不吃飯;從街市上回來,若不先沐浴,也不吃飯;還有其他許多按傳統,應拘守的事:如洗杯、洗壺、洗銅器等。

法利塞人和經師們就問耶穌說:「你的門徒,為什麼不遵守先人的傳統,竟然用不潔的手吃飯?」

耶穌對他們說:「依撒意亞論及你們這些假善人的預言真好,正如所記載的:『這民族用嘴唇尊敬我,他們的心,卻遠離我。他們恭敬我,也是虛假的,因為他們所講授的教義,是人的規律。』你們離棄天主的誡命,而只拘守人的傳統。」

耶穌又叫群眾來,對他們說:「你們都要聽我,且要明白!不是從人外面進入他裡面的,能使人污穢,而是從人裡面出來的,才使人污穢。因為從裡面,從人心裡出來的,是惡念、邪淫、盜竊、兇殺、姦淫、貪吝、毒辣、詭詐、放蕩、嫉妒、毀謗、驕傲、愚妄:這一切惡事,都是從裡面出來的,並且使人污穢。」

The holy Gospel according to Mark (7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23)

When the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus, they observed that some of his disciples ate their meals with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands. —For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews, do not eat without carefully washing their hands, keeping the tradition of the elders. And on coming from the marketplace they do not eat without purifying themselves. And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed, the purification of cups and jugs and kettles and beds. —So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him, “Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the elders but instead eat a meal with unclean hands?” He responded, “Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites, as it is written: This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines human precepts. You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition.” He summoned the crowd again and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand. Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile.

“From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.”
