<< Matthew 15:9 >>



  • Isaiah 29:13
    Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near[ me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
  • Mark 7:7
    Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching[ for] doctrines the commandments of men.
  • 1 Timothy 1 4
    Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith:[ so do].
  • Colossians 2:18-22
    Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,( Touch not; taste not; handle not;Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
  • Titus 1:14

  • Isaiah 58:1-3
    Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and 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 the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to 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 pleasure, and exact all your labours.

    Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;Forbidding to marry,[ and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which 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 ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
  • Exodus 20:7
    Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD 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; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with;[ it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting.Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear[ 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 thine heart be hasty to utter[ any] thing before God: for God[ is] in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice[ is known] by 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 hast vowed.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 it[ was] an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?For in the multitude of dreams and many words[ there are] also[ divers] vanities: but fear thou God.
  • Psalms 39:6
    Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up[ riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.
