<< Matthew 15:11 >>



  • Mark 7:15
    Nothing outside of a person can make them‘ unclean’ by going into them. It is what comes out of them that makes them‘ unclean.’ ”
  • Matthew 15:18-20
    But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart. Those are the things that make someone‘ unclean.’Evil thoughts come out of a person’s heart. So do murder, adultery, and other sexual sins. And so do stealing, false witness, and telling lies about others.Those are the things that make you‘ unclean.’ But eating without washing your hands does not make you‘ unclean.’ ”
  • Matthew 12:34-37
    You nest of poisonous snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? Your mouths say everything that is in your hearts.A good man says good things. These come from the good that is stored up inside him. An evil man says evil things. These come from the evil that is stored up inside him.But here is what I tell you. On judgment day, everyone will have to account for every empty word they have spoken.By your words you will be found guilty or not guilty.”
  • Acts 10:14-15
    “ No, Lord! I will not!” Peter replied.“ I have never eaten anything that is not pure and‘ clean.’ ”The voice spoke to him a second time. It said,“ Do not say anything is not pure that God has made‘ clean.’ ”
  • 1 Timothy 4 4-1 Timothy 4 5
    Everything God created is good. You shouldn’t turn anything down. Instead, you should thank God for it.The word of God and prayer make it holy.
  • Romans 14:17
    God’s kingdom is not about eating or drinking. It is about doing what is right and having peace and joy. All this comes through the Holy Spirit.
  • Luke 11:38-41
    But the Pharisee was surprised. He noticed that Jesus did not wash before the meal.Then the Lord spoke to him.“ You Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish,” he said.“ But inside you are full of greed and evil.You foolish people! Didn’t the one who made the outside make the inside also?Give freely to poor people to show what is inside you. Then everything will be clean for you.
  • Psalms 12:2
    Everyone tells lies to their neighbors. With their lips they praise others, but they don’t really mean it.
  • Psalms 52:2-4
    You plan ways to destroy others. Your tongue is like a blade that has a sharp edge. You are always telling lies.You love evil instead of good. You would rather lie than tell the truth.You love to harm others with your words, you liar!
  • James 3:5-8
    In the same way, the tongue is a small part of a person’s body. But it talks big. Think about how a small spark can set a big forest on fire.The tongue is also a fire. The tongue is the most evil part of the body. It makes the whole body impure. It sets a person’s whole way of life on fire. And the tongue itself is set on fire by hell.People have tamed all kinds of wild animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures. And they still tame them.But no one can tame the tongue. It is an evil thing that never rests. It is full of deadly poison.
  • Isaiah 59:13-15
    We’ve refused to obey the Lord. We’ve made evil plans against him. We’ve turned our backs on our God. We’ve stirred up conflict and refused to follow him. We’ve told lies that came from our own minds.So people stop others from doing what is fair. They keep them from doing what is right. No one tells the truth in court anymore. No one is honest there.In fact, truth can’t be found anywhere. Those who refuse to do evil are attacked. The Lord sees that people aren’t treating others fairly. That makes him unhappy.
  • Acts 11:8-9
    “ I replied,‘ No, Lord! I will not! Nothing that is not pure and“ clean” has ever entered my mouth.’“ A second time the voice spoke from heaven. The voice said,‘ Do not say anything is not pure that God has made“ clean.” ’
  • Romans 14:20
    Don’t destroy the work of God because of food. All food is“ clean.” But it’s wrong to eat anything that might cause problems for someone else’s faith.
  • Romans 3:13-14
    “ Their throats are like open graves. With their tongues they tell lies.”( Psalm 5:9)“ The words from their lips are like the poison of a snake.”( Psalm 140:3)“ Their mouths are full of curses and bitterness.”( Psalm 10:7)
  • Psalms 10:7
    His mouth is full of lies and warnings. With his tongue he speaks evil and makes trouble.
  • Jeremiah 9:3-6
    “ They get ready to use their tongues like bows,” announces the Lord.“ Their mouths shoot out lies like arrows. They tell lies to gain power in the land. They go from one sin to another. They do not pay any attention to me.Be on guard against your friends. Do not trust the members of your own family. Every one of them cheats. Every friend tells lies.One friend cheats another. No one tells the truth. They have taught their tongues how to lie. They wear themselves out sinning.Jeremiah, you live among people who tell lies. When they lie, they refuse to pay any attention to me,” announces the Lord.
  • Psalms 58:3-4
    Even from birth those who are evil go down the wrong path. From the day they are born they go the wrong way and spread lies.Their words are like the poison of a snake. They are like the poison of a cobra that has covered up its ears.
  • Isaiah 59:3-5
    Your hands and fingers are stained with blood. You are guilty of committing murder. Your mouth has told lies. Your tongue says evil things.People aren’t fair when they present cases in court. They aren’t honest when they state their case. They depend on weak arguments. They tell lies. They plan to make trouble. Then they carry it out.The plans they make are like the eggs of poisonous snakes. Anyone who eats those eggs will die. When one of them is broken, a snake comes out.
  • Isaiah 37:23
    Who have you laughed at? Who have you spoken evil things against? Who have you raised your voice against? Who have you looked at so proudly? You have done it against me. I am the Holy One of Israel!
  • Titus 1:15
    To people who are pure, all things are pure. But to those who have twisted minds and don’t believe, nothing is pure. In fact, their minds and their sense of what is right and wrong are twisted.
  • Romans 14:14
    I am absolutely sure that nothing is“ unclean” in itself. The Lord Jesus has convinced me of this. But someone may consider a thing to be“ unclean.” If they do, it is“ unclean” for them.
  • Hebrews 13:9
    Don’t let all kinds of strange teachings lead you astray. It is good that God’s grace makes our hearts strong. Don’t try to grow strong by eating foods that the law requires. They have no value for the people who eat them.
  • 2 Peter 2 18
    They speak empty, bragging words. They make their appeal to the evil desires that come from sin’s power. They tempt new believers who are just escaping from the company of sinful people.
