<< Matthew 15:9 >>



  • Isaiah 29:13
    And the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw nigh unto me, and with their mouth and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which hath been taught them;
  • Mark 7:7

    neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questionings, rather than a dispensation of God which is in faith; so do I now.
  • Colossians 2:18-22
    Let no man rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he hath seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,and not holding fast the Head, from whom all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and bands, increaseth with the increase of God.If ye died with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, do ye subject yourselves to ordinances,Handle not, nor taste, nor touch( all which things are to perish with the using), after the precepts and doctrines of men?

  • Isaiah 58:1-3
    Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and declare unto my people their transgression, and to the house of Jacob their sins.Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways: as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God, they ask of me righteous judgments; they delight to draw near unto God.Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find your own pleasure, and exact all your labors.

  • 1 Timothy 4 1-1 Timothy 4 3
    But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons,through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron;forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth.
  • Malachi 3:14
    Ye have said, It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept his charge, and that we have walked mournfully before Jehovah of hosts?
  • Exodus 20:7
    Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain; for Jehovah will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
  • Isaiah 1:13-15
    Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; new moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies,— I cannot away with iniquity and the solemn meeting.Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth; they are a trouble unto me; I am weary of bearing them.And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
  • Ecclesiastes 5:2-7
    Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.For a dream cometh with a multitude of business, and a fool’s voice with a multitude of words.When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou vowest.Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that is was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thy hands?For in the multitude of dreams there are vanities, and in many words: but fear thou God.
  • Psalms 39:6
    Surely every man walketh in a vain show; Surely they are disquieted in vain: He heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
  • 1 Corinthians 15 2
    by which also ye are saved, if ye hold fast the word which I preached unto you, except ye believed in vain.
