He answered them, "Isaiah prophesied correctly about you hypocrites, as it is written: These people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
They worship Me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commands of men. a8
Disregarding the command of God, you keep the tradition of men." b9
He also said to them, "You completely invalidate God's command in order to maintain c your tradition!
For Moses said: Honor your father and your mother; d and, Whoever speaks evil of father or mother must be put to death. e11
But you say, 'If a man tells his father or mother: Whatever benefit you might have received from me is Corban ' " (that is, a gift [committed to the temple]),
"you no longer let him do anything for his father or mother.
You revoke God's word by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many other similar things."
Summoning the crowd again, He told them, "Listen to Me, all of you, and understand:
Nothing that goes into a person from outside can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.
If anyone has ears to hear, he should listen!" f
