Not what enters into the mouth defiles the man; but what goes forth out of the mouth, this defiles the man.
Do ye not yet apprehend, that everything that enters into the mouth finds its way into the belly, and is cast forth into the draught?
There is nothing from outside a man entering into him which can defile him; but the things which go out from him, those it is which defile the man.
And he says to them, Are ye also thus unintelligent? Do ye not perceive that all that is outside entering into the man cannot defile him,
because it does not enter into his heart but into his belly, and goes out into the draught, purging all meats?
