THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

15:2Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

Mark (Author John Mark)

7:2And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

7:3For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

7:4And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.

7:5Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
