Green's Literal Translation (1985)Matthew - chapter 15, verses 3 - 9

3 But answering He said to them, Why do you also transgress the command of God on account of your tradition?
4 For God commanded, saying, "Honor your father and mother," Ex. 20:12; Deut. 5:16 and, "The one speaking evil of father or mother, by death let him die." Ex. 21:17
5 But you say, Whoever says to the father or the mother, A gift, whatever you would gain from me;
6 and in no way he honors his father or his mother. And you annulled the command of God on account of your tradition.
7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy concerning you, saying:
8 "This people draws near to Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me; but their heart holds far off from Me.
9 But in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men." Isa. 29:13
