Matthew 19:3-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Some Pharisees approached Him to test Him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife on any grounds?”

“Haven’t you read,” He replied, “that He who created[a] them in the beginning made them male and female,”[b] and He also said:

For this reason a man will leave
his father and mother
and be joined to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh?[c]

So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must not separate.”
