Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 7:2

And when they saw some of his disciples (a) eat bread with (b) defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

(a) Literally, "eat bread": an idiom which the Hebrews use, understanding bread to represent every type of food.

(b) For the Pharisees would not eat their food with unwashed hands, because they thought that their hands were defiled with the common handling of things; (Matthew 15:11-12).
