Mark 7:1-13

GNT 1 Some Pharisees and teachers of the Law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus. NIV 1 The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus GNT 2 They noticed that some of his disciples were eating their food with hands that were ritually unclean - that is, they had not washed them in the way the Pharisees said people should. NIV 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. GNT 3 (For the Pharisees, as well as the rest of the Jews, follow the teaching they received from their ancestors: they do not eat unless they wash their hands in the proper way; NIV 3 (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. GNT 4 nor do they eat anything that comes from the market unless they wash it first. And they follow many other rules which they have received, such as the proper way to wash cups, pots, copper bowls, and beds. ) NIV 4 When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles. ) GNT 5 So the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law asked Jesus, "Why is it that your disciples do not follow the teaching handed down by our ancestors, but instead eat with ritually unclean hands?" NIV 5 So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?” GNT 6 Jesus answered them, "How right Isaiah was when he prophesied about you! You are hypocrites, just as he wrote: "These people, says God, honor me with their words, but their heart is really far away from me. NIV 6 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. GNT 7 It is no use for them to worship me, because they teach human rules as though they were my laws!' NIV 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’ GNT 8 "You put aside God's command and obey human teachings." NIV 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.” GNT 9 And Jesus continued, "You have a clever way of rejecting God's law in order to uphold your own teaching. NIV 9 And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observeyour own traditions! GNT 10 For Moses commanded, "Respect your father and your mother,' and, "If you curse your father or your mother, you are to be put to death.' NIV 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ GNT 11 But you teach that if people have something they could use to help their father or mother, but say, "This is Corban' (which means, it belongs to God), NIV 11 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)— GNT 12 they are excused from helping their father or mother. NIV 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. GNT 13 In this way the teaching you pass on to others cancels out the word of God. And there are many other things like this that you do." NIV 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”
