The Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, "Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with impure hands?" (Mark 7:5)

"Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men." (Mark 7:8)

thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down; and you do many things such as that." (Mark 7:13)
