Matthew 15:3-9

And He answered them, "Why do you also violate the commandments of God by [following] your traditions? For God said, [Ex. 20:12], 'Give honor to your father and mother.' and [Ex. 21:17], 'Whoever says bad things about his father or mother should surely be put to death.' But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, I have given to God the money I could have helped you with;' read more.
this person does not honor his father [or mother]. You have made God's message useless by [thus enforcing] your traditions. You hypocrites!

They are worshiping me for nothing [because they are] teaching principles that are [merely] the requirements of men.'"
