MARK 7:6-13

6. And He said to them, ``Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: `THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. 7. `BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.' 8. ``Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men." 9. He was also saying to them, ``You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition. 10. ``For Moses said, `HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER'; and, `HE WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER, IS TO BE PUT TO DEATH'; 11. but you say, `If a man says to his father or his mother, whatever I have that would help you is Corban (that is to say, given to God ),' 12. you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother; 13. thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down; and you do many things such as that."
