Mark 7:1-37

Mark 7:1-13:
7:1And the Pharisees and some of the scribes gather-together towards him having come from Jerusalem; .2and having seen some of his learning-disciples that with common hands, this is unwashed, they eat the breads - .3for the Pharisees and all the Judeans except they may wash the hands with fist they do not eat, strongly-holding the tradition of the elders, .4and from (the) marketplace except they may baptize-themselves they do not eat, also there are many other-things which they received to strongly-hold, baptisms of cups and pitchers and copper-vessels and beds - .5and the Pharisees and the scribes ask him, "Because-of-what do your learning-disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders? - but with common hands they eat the bread." .6But the (one) said to them, "Beautifully Isaiah prophesied concerning you, the hypocrites, as it was written2, 'This people honor Me with the lips but their heart has far away from Me. .7But futilely they reverence Me teaching teachings (which are) commandments of men.' .8Having left the commandment of God you strongly-hold the tradition of men." .9And he used-to-say to them, "Beautifully you reject the commandment of God in order that you may cause your tradition to-stand, .10for Moses said, 'You must honor your father and your mother', and, 'The (person) speaking-badly-of father or mother must complete (his life) with death.' .11But you say, 'If-ever a man may say to the father or to the mother, 'Corban' " - which is a free-gift - " 'that-which if-ever you may be profited from me,' .12you leave him no-longer to do nothing for the father or for the mother, .13unconfirming the word of God with your tradition which you gave-over; and many like things-of-this-kind you do."

The Pharisees and some of the scribes assemble towards Jesus after they came from Jerusalem (the ‘headquarters’ regarding their teachings, authority, etc, where the temple was located). When they saw (perceived) some of his learning-disciples that with common hands (in the sense of being defiled, ceremonially unlawful and unclean), this is unwashed (the students had not washed their hands before eating), they eat the breads (referring here to any kind of food)...

...and the Pharisees and the scribes ask him (inquire directly from Jesus to explain a certain topic), "Because-of-what (why, by means of what reason, on what account) do your students not walk (behave or conduct themselves) in accordance with the tradition of the elders? - but on the contrary, with common hands they eat the bread (as verse 2 above)."

But the one whom they were asking (Jesus) said to them, "Beautifully Isaiah prophesied (Isaiah spoke-forth God's words being revealed to him with a manifested decorous, harmonious and acceptable goodness)...

Also during that past time Jesus said to them...

The Pharisees and scribes taught that if a child of his parents dedicated the items (which previously he would have given to his aging parents to support and help them materially and financially) to God making these items a “free-gift” - then that child should not give this “free-gift” to his father or mother but instead since it now belongs to God the child should eventually give these items to the temple. They taught that people could exchange doing what their tradition stipulated in the place of what God said!
