Context
Traditions and Commandments

1Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3But he answered and said to them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4For God commanded, saying, Honor your father and mother: and, He that curses father or mother, let him die the death. 5But you say, Whoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; 6And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

tradition. Tradition, in Latin traditio, from trado, I deliver, hand down, exactly agreeing with the original [paradosis,] from [paradidomi,] I deliver, transmit. Among the Jews it signifies what is called oral law, which they say has been successively handed down from Moses, through every generation, to Judah the Holy, who compiled and digested it into the Mishneh, to explain which the two Gemaras, or Talmuds, called the Jerusalem and Babylonish, were composed. Of the estimation in which these were held by the Jews, the following may serve as an example: 'The words of the Scribes are lovely beyond the words of the law, for the words of the law are weighty and light, but the words of the Scribes are all weighty.'
