Malachi 2:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)

14 But you say, “Why?”
    Because the Lord testifies about you
            and the wife of your youth against whom you cheated.
    She is your partner,
            the wife of your covenant.
15 Didn’t he make her[a] the one[b]
    and the remnant of his spirit?[c]
    What is the one?
        The one seeking godly offspring.
You should guard your own spirit.
    Don’t cheat on the wife of your youth
16         because he hates divorce,
says the Lord God of Israel,
            and he also hates the one covering his garment with violence,[d]
says the Lord of heavenly forces.
        Guard your own life, and don’t cheat.
