16 For [a]I hate [b]divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “and [c]him who covers his garment with [d]wrong,” says the Lord of hosts. “So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”
3 Some Pharisees came to [a]Jesus, testing Him and asking, “Is it lawful for a man to [b]divorce his wife for any reason at all?”4 And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female,5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, andthe two shall become one flesh’?6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”7 They *said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate of divorce and sendheraway?”8 He *said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to [c]divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way.9 And I say to you, whoever [d]divorces his wife, except for [e]immorality, and marries another woman [f]commits adultery[g].”
2 Some Pharisees came up to Jesus, testing Him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to [a]divorce a wife.3 And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?”4 They said, “Moses permitted a manto write a certificate of divorce and[b]sendheraway.”5 But Jesus said to them, “[c]Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.6 But from the beginning of creation, Godmade them male and female.7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother[d],8 and the two shall become one flesh; so they are no longer two, but one flesh.9 What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”
10 In the house the disciples began questioning Him about this again.11 And He *said to them, “Whoever [e]divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her;12 and if she herself [f]divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.”
