Matthew 15:2-3

Context
15:2 “Why do your disciples disobey the tradition of the elders? For they don’t wash their 1  hands when they eat.” 2  15:3 He answered them, 3  “And why do you disobey the commandment of God because of your tradition?

1 tc ‡ Although most witnesses read the genitive plural pronoun αὐτῶν (autwn, “their”), it may have been motivated by clarification (as it is in the translation above). Several other authorities do not have the pronoun, however (א B Δ 073 Ë1 579 700 892 1424 pc f g1); the lack of an unintentional oversight as the reason for omission strengthens their combined testimony in this shorter reading. NA27 has the pronoun in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity.

2 tn Grk “when they eat bread.”

3 tn Grk “But answering, he said to them.”
