Matthew 15:1-9 (The Webster Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, who were of Jerusalem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answered and said to them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, Honor thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatever thou mightest be profited by me; 6 And honor not his father or his mother, [he shall be free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7 [Ye] hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draw nigh to me with their mouth, and honor me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
