But from the beginning of the creation
Of the world, or of man: (Mlwe lv wtyyrb tlxtm) , "from the beginning of the creation of the world", is a way of speaking often used by the Jews F18: the phrase "of the creation" is left out in the Syriac and Persic versions; and so it was in Beza's most ancient copy, and it is only read, "from the beginning", as in Mt 19:4,8, (See Gill on Matthew 19:4), (See Gill on Matthew 19:8).
God made them male and female;
the first that were created, Adam and Eve, the first parents of mankind, the first couple that came together were one male and one female; so that there could be no polygamy or divorce: Adam could not have more wives than one: nor could he put away Eve, and marry another; no provision was made for any such usages and practices; (See Gill on Matthew 19:4). In the Complutensian edition, it is added, "and said", the following words.
