And he answered and said to them, “Why do even you yourselves transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? Bible

“even you yourselves.” The kai (#2532 καί) before the emphatic humeis (5210 ὑμεῖ) is not ‘also’ and does not place the Pharisees alongside of Jesus’ disciples [as if they too had sinned]; it signifies ‘even you yourselves,’ the very ones who are truly guilty of transgression, while they pretend to find transgression in others” Lenski, Matthew, p. 583.
