<< Matthew 15:11 >>



  • Mark 7:15
    There is nothing outside of a person that can defile him by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles him.”
  • Matthew 15:18-20
    But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a person.For out of the heart come evil ideas, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.These are the things that defile a person; it is not eating with unwashed hands that defiles a person.”
  • Matthew 12:34-37
    Offspring of vipers! How are you able to say anything good, since you are evil? For the mouth speaks from what fills the heart.The good person brings good things out of his good treasury, and the evil person brings evil things out of his evil treasury.I tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak.For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
  • Acts 10:14-15
    But Peter said,“ Certainly not, Lord, for I have never eaten anything defiled and ritually unclean!”The voice spoke to him again, a second time,“ What God has made clean, you must not consider ritually unclean!”
  • 1 Timothy 4 4-1 Timothy 4 5
    For every creation of God is good and no food is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.For it is sanctified by God’s word and by prayer.
  • Romans 14:17
    For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
  • Luke 11:38-41
    The Pharisee was astonished when he saw that Jesus did not first wash his hands before the meal.But the Lord said to him,“ Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.You fools! Didn’t the one who made the outside make the inside as well?But give from your heart to those in need, and then everything will be clean for you.
  • Psalms 12:2
    People lie to one another; they flatter and deceive.
  • Psalms 52:2-4
    Your tongue carries out your destructive plans; it is as effective as a sharp razor, O deceiver.You love evil more than good, lies more than speaking the truth.( Selah)You love to use all the words that destroy, and the tongue that deceives.
  • James 3:5-8
    So too the tongue is a small part of the body, yet it has great pretensions. Think how small a flame sets a huge forest ablaze.And the tongue is a fire! The tongue represents the world of wrongdoing among the parts of our bodies. It pollutes the entire body and sets fire to the course of human existence– and is set on fire by hell.For every kind of animal, bird, reptile, and sea creature is subdued and has been subdued by humankind.But no human being can subdue the tongue; it is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
  • Isaiah 59:13-15
    We have rebelled and tried to deceive the LORD; we turned back from following our God. We stir up oppression and rebellion; we tell lies we concocted in our minds.Justice is driven back; godliness stands far off. Indeed, honesty stumbles in the city square and morality is not even able to enter.Honesty has disappeared; the one who tries to avoid evil is robbed. The LORD watches and is displeased, for there is no justice.
  • Acts 11:8-9
    But I said,‘ Certainly not, Lord, for nothing defiled or ritually unclean has ever entered my mouth!’But the voice replied a second time from heaven,‘ What God has made clean, you must not consider ritually unclean!’
  • Romans 14:20
    Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. For although all things are clean, it is wrong to cause anyone to stumble by what you eat.
  • Romans 3:13-14
    “ Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.”“ Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”
  • Psalms 10:7
    His mouth is full of curses and deceptive, harmful words; his tongue injures and destroys.
  • Jeremiah 9:3-6
    The LORD says,“ These people are like soldiers who have readied their bows. Their tongues are always ready to shoot out lies. They have become powerful in the land, but they have not done so by honest means. Indeed, they do one evil thing after another and do not pay attention to me.Everyone must be on his guard around his friends. He must not even trust any of his relatives. For every one of them will find some way to cheat him. And all of his friends will tell lies about him.One friend deceives another and no one tells the truth. These people have trained themselves to tell lies. They do wrong and are unable to repent.They do one act of violence after another, and one deceitful thing after another. They refuse to pay attention to me,” says the LORD.
  • Psalms 58:3-4
    The wicked turn aside from birth; liars go astray as soon as they are born.Their venom is like that of a snake, like a deaf serpent that does not hear,
  • Isaiah 59:3-5
    For your hands are stained with blood and your fingers with sin; your lips speak lies, your tongue utters malicious words.No one is concerned about justice; no one sets forth his case truthfully. They depend on false words and tell lies; they conceive of oppression and give birth to sin.They hatch the eggs of a poisonous snake and spin a spider’s web. Whoever eats their eggs will die, a poisonous snake is hatched.
  • Isaiah 37:23
    Whom have you taunted and hurled insults at? At whom have you shouted and looked so arrogantly? At the Holy One of Israel!

    All is pure to those who are pure. But to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their minds and consciences are corrupted.
  • Romans 14:14
    I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean in itself; still, it is unclean to the one who considers it unclean.
  • Hebrews 13:9
    Do not be carried away by all sorts of strange teachings. For it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not ritual meals, which have never benefited those who participated in them.
  • 2 Peter 2 18
    For by speaking high- sounding but empty words they are able to entice, with fleshly desires and with debauchery, people who have just escaped from those who reside in error.
