Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 15:6

_ _ And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free — that is, It is true, father — mother — that by giving to thee this, which I now present, thou mightest be profited by me; but I have gifted it to pious uses, and therefore, at whatever cost to thee, I am not now at liberty to alienate any portion of it. “And,” it is added in Mark (Mark 7:12), “ye suffer him no more to do aught for his father or his mother.” To dedicate property to God is indeed lawful and laudable, but not at the expense of filial duty.

_ _ Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect — cancelled or nullified it “by your tradition.”

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 15:6

And honour not his father or his mother, [he shall be free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none (d) effect by your tradition.

(d) As much as you could, you destroyed the power and authority of the commandment: for otherwise the commandments of God stand fast in the Church of God, in spite of the world and Satan.
