“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:8 Their heart is far from me - And without this all outward worship is mere mockery of God. #Isaiah 29:13|.
Mt 15:8 This people. The Jews. Quoted from Isa 29:13. Their heart is far from me. The essential of true worship is that the heart be wholly given to God. Even the forms commanded by God are worthless unless they are obeyed from the heart.
