Matthew 15:4-6 New International Version

4  For God said, 'Honor your father and mother'[1]and 'Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.'[2] 5  But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is 'devoted to God,' 6  they are not to 'honor their father or mother' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
