[kawr-buh n; Sephardic Hebrew kawr-bahn; Ashkenazic Hebrew kawr-buh n] /ˈkɔr bən; Sephardic Hebrew kɔrˈbɑn; Ashkenazic Hebrew ˈkɔr bən/
noun

a sacrifice or offering made to God, especially among the ancient Hebrews in fulfillment of a vow.
/ˈkɔːbən; Hebrew kɔrˈban/
noun
1.
(Old Testament) a gift to God
2.
(New Testament, Judaism) the Temple treasury or a consecration or gift to it (Matthew 27:6; Mark 7:11)

a Hebrew word adopted into the Greek of the New Testament and left untranslated. It occurs only once (Mark 7:11). It means a gift or offering consecrated to God. Anything over which this word was once pronounced was irrevocably dedicated to the temple. Land, however, so dedicated might be redeemed before the year of jubilee (Lev. 27:16-24). Our Lord condemns the Pharisees for their false doctrine, inasmuch as by their traditions they had destroyed the commandment which requires children to honour their father and mother, teaching them to find excuse from helping their parents by the device of pronouncing “Corban” over their goods, thus reserving them to their own selfish use.
