Teaching About Divorce

1 1And he left there and went 2to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again. And again, as was his custom, he taught them. 2 And Pharisees came up and in order 3to test him asked, 4"Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" 3 He answered them, "What did Moses command you?" 4 They said, 5"Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce and to send her away." 5 And Jesus said to them, "Because of your 6hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 But 7from the beginning of creation, 'God made them 8male and female.' 7 9'Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife,a 8 and 10the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 11What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate." 10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter.
