A certificate of divorce was required under Mosaic law

Mk 10:4 pp Mt 19:7 The certificate provided a divorced wife with some legal protection and permitted her to remarry. See also Dt 24:1-4; Hos 2:2 These words may have been adapted from a divorce bill; Mt 5:31

God gave his unfaithful people a certificate of divorce

Jer 3:8 See also Isa 50:1 Unlike Israel, Judah had been given no certificate of divorce. The exile is thus portrayed as only a temporary separation.
