Mark 10:1-12 New Life Version (NLV)

Jesus Teaches about Divorce

10 Jesus went away from the city of Capernaum. He came to the country of Judea and to the other side of the Jordan River. Again the people gathered around Him. He began to teach them as He had been doing.

The proud religious law-keepers came to Him. They tried to trap Him and asked, “Does the Law say a man can divorce his wife?” He said to them, “What did the Law of Moses say?” They said, “Moses allowed a man to divorce his wife, if he put it in writing and gave it to her.” Jesus said to them, “Because of your hard hearts, Moses gave you this Law. From the beginning of the world, God made them man and woman. Because of this, a man is to leave his father and mother and is to live with his wife. The two will become one. So they are no longer two, but one. Let no man divide what God has put together.”

10 In the house the followers asked Jesus about this again. 11 He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another is not faithful to her and is guilty of a sex sin. 12 If a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she is not faithful to her husband and is guilty of a sex sin.”
