Mark 7:5-7 King James Version (KJV)

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mark 7:5-7 New King James Version (NKJV)

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

Marcos 7:5-7 Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)

Le preguntaron, pues, los fariseos y los escribas: ¿Por qué tus discípulos no andan conforme a la tradición de los ancianos, sino que comen pan con manos inmundas?

Respondiendo él, les dijo: Hipócritas, bien profetizó de vosotros Isaías, como está escrito:
    Este pueblo de labios me honra,
    Mas su corazón está lejos de mí.

Pues en vano me honran,
Enseñando como doctrinas mandamientos de hombres. m
