New International Version
"Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
King James Bible
Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
Darby Bible Translation
Do ye not yet apprehend, that everything that enters into the mouth finds its way into the belly, and is cast forth into the draught?

Don't you understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the belly, and then out of the body?

"Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them.
But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.
For it doesn't go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body." (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)
1 Corinthians 6:13
You say, "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both." The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
