Matthew 15:3-5 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Jesus answered, “And why do you refuse to obey God’s command so that you can follow those traditions you have? God said, ‘You must respect your father and mother.’[a] And God also said, ‘Whoever says anything bad to their father or mother must be killed.’[b] But you teach that a person can say to their father or mother, ‘I have something I could use to help you. But I will not use it for you. I will give it to God.’
