He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? For God commanded, saying, cHonor your father and your mother; and, dHe who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, e“Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to Godthen he need not honor his father 1or mother.’ Thus you have made the 2commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. fHypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

8 These gpeople 3draw near to Me with their mouth,

And honor Me with their lips,

But their heart is far from Me.

9 And in vain they worship Me,

hTeaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”

10 iWhen He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand: 11 jNot what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
