Bible: Mark 7:7-13

7:7 They worship me in vain,

teaching as doctrine the commandments of men.’ 1 

7:8 Having no regard 2  for the command of God, you hold fast to human tradition.” 3  7:9 He also said to them, “You neatly reject the commandment of God in order to set up 4  your tradition. 7:10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ 5  and, ‘Whoever insults his father or mother must be put to death.’ 6  7:11 But you say that if anyone tells his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you would have received from me is corban 7  (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 8  the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like this.”
