Matthew 15:4–6  (NASB95)                    Back

4“For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’ and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother is to be put to death.’ 5“But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever I have that would help you has been given to God,” 6he is not to honor his father or his mother.’ And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition.

 

 

Matthew 15:4-6  (WEB)                    Back

4 For God commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’

5 But you say, ‘Whoever may tell his father or his mother, “Whatever help you might otherwise have gotten from me is a gift devoted to God,”

6 he shall not honor his father or mother.’ You have made the commandment of God void because of your tradition.

[1] This is an extremely compressed answer that covers all interpersonal relationships of all kinds. The reader is strongly encouraged to study the Westminster Larger Catechism, Questions 123–133, for a fuller exposition. Several commentaries are also helpful, such as those by Thomas Vincent, The Shorter Catechism of the Westminster Assembly Explained and Proved from Scripture (Still Waters Revival Books, www.PuritanDownloads.com), or Thomas Boston, Commentary on the Shorter Catechism, 2 Volumes, (Still Waters Revival Books, www.PuritanDownloads.com).

[2] “Preserving the honor” includes personally honoring those to whom honor is due, but also, where appropriate, protecting and defending the honor of those to whom honor is due.

[3] Here, “duties” includes both general duties such as love to neighbor and enemy, and specific duties such as parent to child and child to parent.

[4] None of the following terms refer in any way to the value and dignity that comes from being made in the image of God. This human dignity is neither increased nor decreased by these terms.

[5] superiors: not only those in authority over us, but also those with superior age, graces, gifts, or abilities

[6] inferiors: not only those over whom we have authority, but also those who, by reason of younger age, weakness, smaller graces, lesser gifts, weaker abilities, or infirmities, are deserving of kindness, care, and aid as needed

[7] equals: those who are more or less equal in age, graces, gifts, or abilities. It is well worth observing that the relations of superior, inferior, and equal may all apply between the same two parties depending upon circumstances. For example a pastor and a police officer may be equal at the dinner table and unequal while behind the pulpit or on duty in a patrol car. For another example, one may have great faith but be weak in doctrine, while another is weak in faith but knows much doctrine. These have different graces and should each respect and honor the graces in the other and aid the other in his weaknesses.

[8] From the context of this and the next question, it is clear that “life” includes not only life as opposed to death, but also all that pertains to a person’s living out his or her life, such as freedom and well-being.

“Behold”, from “הִנֵּה”, means look at, take notice, observe, see, or gaze at. It is often used as an interjection.
