Matthew 5:31-37Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Divorce Practices Censured
31 “It was also said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice of divorce.[a] 32 But I tell you, everyone who divorces his wife, except in a case of sexual immorality,[b] causes her to commit adultery. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Tell the Truth
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to our ancestors,[c] You must not break your oath, but you must keep your oaths to the Lord.[d] 34 But I tell you, don’t take an oath at all: either by heaven, because it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, because it is His footstool; or by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither should you swear by your head, because you cannot make a single hair white or black. 37 But let your word ‘yes’ be ‘yes,’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no.’[e] Anything more than this is from the evil one.
