What defiles a person is not what goes into the mouth; it is what 1 comes out of the mouth that defiles a person.”
He said, “What comes out of a person defiles him.
All these evils come from within and defile a person.”
But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a person.
These are the things that defile a person; it is not eating with unwashed hands that defiles a person.” 1
