Matthew 15:1-9 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then the scribes and Pharisees from Jerusalem come up to Jesus, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress what has been delivered by the ancients? a for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answering said to them, Why do *ye* also transgress the commandment of God on account of your traditional teaching? 4 For God commanded saying, b Honour father and mother; and, c He that speaks ill d of father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But *ye* say, Whosoever shall say to his father or mother, It is a gift, e whatsoever [it be] by which [received] from me thou wouldest be profited: 6 and he shall in no wise honour his father or his mother; and ye have made void the commandment of God on account of your traditional teaching. 7 Hypocrites! well has Esaias prophesied about you, saying, f 8 This people honour me with the lips, but their heart is far away from me; 9 but in vain do they worship me, teaching [as] teachings commandments of men.
