Christ’s words in defence of his disciples who are criticised for their improper table-manners.


For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

Matthew 15:19-20
