And He answered and said to them, "Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? (Matthew 15:3)

"For God said, `HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER,' and, `HE WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER IS TO BE PUT TO DEATH.' (Matthew 15:4)

"But you say, `Whoever says to his father or mother, "Whatever I have that would help you has been given to God," (Matthew 15:5)

he is not to honor his father or his mother.' And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition. (Matthew 15:6)
