Jesus Heals the Sick in Gennesaret

34 (A)And when they had crossed over, they came to land at (B)Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and (C)brought to him all who were sick 36 and implored him that they might only touch (D)the fringe of his garment. And (E)as many as touched it were made well.

Traditions and Commandments

15 (F)Then Pharisees and (G)scribes came to Jesus (H)from Jerusalem and said, (I)“Why do your disciples break (J)the tradition of the elders? (K)For they do not wash their hands when they eat.” He answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God commanded, (L)‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, (M)‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’ But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to God,”[a] he need not honor his father.’ So for the sake of your tradition you have (N)made void the word[b] of God. (O)You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:

(P)“‘This people honors me with their lips,
    but their heart is far from me;
in vain do they worship me,
    teaching as (Q)doctrines the commandments of men.’”
