Mark 7:5-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors ‘Me’ (Referring to ‘YHWH’: ‘the Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym’) with their lips,

But their ‘heart’ (leb: understanding, wisdom, etc..) is far from ‘Me’ (Referring to ‘YHWH’: ‘the Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym’).

And in ‘vain’ (shav: useless(eness), false(ly), etc..) they ‘worship’ (baqash: enquire, seek, etc..)  ‘Me’ (Referring to ‘YHWH’: ‘the Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym),
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’[a]

For laying aside the commandment of ‘God’ (ha-‘Elohiym: the-Magistrates, the-Great (ones), the-Mighty (ones), etc..), you hold the tradition of men[b] —the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Heart: 3820 leb labe a form of 3824; the heart; also used (figuratively) very widely for the feelings, the will and even the intellect; likewise for the centre of anything:–+ care for, comfortably, consent, X considered, courag(-eous), friend(-ly), ((broken-), (hard-), (merry-), (stiff-), (stout-), double) heart((-ed)), X heed, X I, kindly, midst, mind(-ed), X regard((-ed)), X themselves, X unawares, understanding, X well, willingly, wisdom.

Vain (vanity): 7723 shav’ shawv or shav {shav}; from the same as 7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjective), uselessness (as deceptive, objective; also adverbially, in vain):–false(-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.

Worship: 1245 baqash baw-kash’ a primitive root; to search out (by any method, specifically in worship or prayer); by implication, to strive after:–ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure, (make) request, require, seek (for).

G-d: 430 ‘elohiym el-o-heem’ plural of 433; ‘gods’ (eloah) in the ordinary sense; but specifically used in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme ‘God’ (‘Elohiym); occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:–angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great[ones], judges, X mighty[ones].

Other Definitions:

‘The L-rd’ (‘Ha-Adonai’): In Scripture, a title that replaces ‘YHWH’ some 7000 times.

L-rd: [Adonai or L-rd]: Baal, god (eloah) worshipped in many ancient Middle Eastern communities, especially among the Canaanites, who apparently considered him a fertility deity and one of the most important gods (elohiym) in the pantheon. As a Semitic common noun baal (Hebrew baʿal) meant “owner” or “lord,” etc… See source: Baal-ancient-deity

“YHWH is probably derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”.[6][8][9] It is connected to the passage in Exodus 3:14 in which ‘God’ (Elohiym: [the] Magistrates, Great, Mighty – ones, etc..) gives ‘his’ (‘iysh: the stewards’, etc..) name as אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh / YHWH), where the relative pronoun asher (“that”, “who”, “which”, and “where”) is between two instances of the first person singular imperfect of the verb hayah (“to be”). Ehyeh is often, but not always, translated as “I will be”, while the relative pronoun can have several meanings: “I will be that/who/which/where I will be”. It is maybe translated most basically as “I Am that/who/which/where I Am“, or “I shall be what I shall be”, “I shall be what I am”[10] or יהוה
