    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 15:12

    The Pharisees were offended - None so liable to take offense as formalists and hypocrites, when you attempt to take away the false props from the one, and question the sincerity of the other. Besides, a Pharisee must never be suspected of ignorance, for they are the men, and wisdom must die with them!

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 15:12

    The Pharisees were offended - They were so zealous of their traditions that they could not endure that their absurdities should be exposed.
