31"It was said, 'WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE ';32but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery ; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and the hour is already late ; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves."

After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray ; and when it was evening, He was there alone.

They said to Him, "Why then did Moses command to GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE AND SEND her AWAY ?"
He said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives ; but from the beginning it has not been this way.9"And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery ."
