Bible: Mark 7:6-13
‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart 1 is far from me.
7:7 They worship me in vain,
teaching as doctrine the commandments of men.’ 2
7:8 Having no regard 3 for the command of God, you hold fast to human tradition.” 4 7:9 He also said to them, “You neatly reject the commandment of God in order to set up 5 your tradition. 7:10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ 6 and, ‘Whoever insults his father or mother must be put to death.’ 7 7:11 But you say that if anyone tells his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you would have received from me is corban’ 8 (that is, a gift for God), 7:12 then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother. 7:13 Thus you nullify 9 the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like this.”
