21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, [a]fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, [b](A)envy, slander, [c]pride and foolishness. 23 All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.”

The Syrophoenician Woman

24 (B)Jesus got up and went away from there to the region of (C)Tyre[d]. And when He had entered a house, He wanted no one to know of it; [e]yet He could not escape notice. 25 But after hearing of Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately came and fell at His feet. 26 Now the woman was a [f]Gentile, of the Syrophoenician race. And she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 And He was saying to her, “Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not [g]good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 28 But she answered and *said to Him, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table feed on the children’s crumbs.” 29 And He said to her, “Because of this [h]answer go; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” 30 And going back to her home, she found the child [i]lying on the bed, the demon having left.

31 (D)Again He went out from the region of (E)Tyre, and came through Sidon to (F)the Sea of Galilee, within the region of (G)Decapolis. 32 They *brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they *implored Him to (H)lay His hand on him. 33 (I)Jesus took him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after (J)spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva; 34 and looking up to heaven with a deep (K)sigh, He *said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!” 35 And his ears were opened, and the [j]impediment of his tongue [k]was removed, and he began speaking plainly. 36 And (L)He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they (M)continued to proclaim it. 37 They were utterly astonished, saying, “He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

Or (A)do you not know that the unrighteous will not (B)inherit the kingdom of God? (C)Do not be deceived; (D)neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will (E)inherit the kingdom of God. 11 (F)Such were some of you; but you were (G)washed, but you were (H)sanctified, but you were (I)justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

The Body Is the Lord’s

12 (J)All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 (K)Food is for the [b]stomach and the [c]stomach is for food, but God will (L)do away with both [d]of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but (M)for the Lord, and (N)the Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only (O)raised the Lord, but (P)will also raise us up through His power. 15 (Q)Do you not know that (R)your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? (S)May it never be! 16 Or (T)do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “(U)The two shall become one flesh.” 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is (V)one spirit with Him. 18 (W)Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the [e]immoral man sins against his own body. 19 Or (X)do you not know that (Y)your body is a [f]temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from [g]God, and that (Z)you are not your own? 20 For (AA)you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in (AB)your body.

19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: [a](A)immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, (B)sorcery, enmities, (C)strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, (D)disputes, dissensions, [b](E)factions, 21 envying, (F)drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not (G)inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But (H)the fruit of the Spirit is (I)love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, (J)self-control; against such things (K)there is no law. 24 Now those who [c]belong to (L)Christ Jesus have (M)crucified the flesh with its passions and (N)desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also [d]walk (O)by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become (P)boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
