Against the word of God (Mk 7:13-7:13)


You are

Making void

The word of God

Through your traditions

That you have handed on.

You do many such things

Like this.”


ἀκυροῦντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ τῇ παραδόσει ὑμῶν ᾗ παρεδώκατε· καὶ παρόμοια τοιαῦτα πολλὰ ποιεῖτε.


There is something similar to this in Matthew, chapter 15:6.  Mark said that Jesus pointed out that they have made void or cancelled out the word of God (ἀκυροῦντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ).  Through their traditions (τῇ παραδόσει), they have handed on (ᾗ παρεδώκατε) and done many such things like this (παρόμοια τοιαῦτα πολλὰ ποιεῖτε).
