Matthew 15:5

_ _ But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift — or simply, “A gift!” In Mark (Mark 7:11), it is, “Corban!” that is, “An oblation!” meaning, any unbloody offering or gift dedicated to sacred uses.

_ _ by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 15:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 15:5

It is a gift by whatsoever thou mightest have been profited by me — That is, I have given, or at least, purpose to give to the treasury of the temple, what you might otherwise have had from me.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 15:5

But ye say, (c) Whosoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

(c) The meaning is this: whatever I bestow upon the temple, is to your profit, for it is as good as if I gave it to you, for (as the Pharisees of our time say) it will be meritorious for you: for under this form of religion, they gathered all to themselves, as though he that had given anything to the temple, had done the duty of a child.
