This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 7:8. Ἀφέντες, laying aside) The antithetic word to hold. The terms akin are, to reject, Mar 7:9, and to make of none effect, Mar 7:13.-τὴν ἐντολὴν the commandment) The commandment is one, even as virtue is one and uncompounded; as opposed to the multiplicity of traditions.-τοῦ Θεοῦ-τῶν ἀνθρώπων, of God-of men) An evident antithesis.-βαπτισμοὺς ξεστῶν, the washings of pitchers) worthless petty observances.
