dThen the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you ehypocrites, as it is written:

f‘This people honors Me with their lips,

But their heart is far from Me.

7 And in vain they worship Me,

Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—4the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

He said to them, All too well gyou 5reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.
