Then some P'rushim and Torah-teachers from Yerushalayim came to Yeshua and asked him,
"Why is it that your talmidim break the Tradition of the Elders? They don't do n'tilat-yadayim before they eat!"
He answered, "Indeed, why do you break the command of God by your tradition?
For God said, `Honor your father and mother,' and `Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.'
But you say, `If anyone says to his father or mother, "I have promised to give to God what I might have used to help you,"
then he is rid of his duty to honor his father or mother.' Thus by your tradition you make null and void the word of God!
You hypocrites! Yesha`yahu was right when he prophesied about you,
`These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me.
Their worship of me is useless, because they teach man-made rules as if they were doctrines.'"
