They said, 1"Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce and to send her away."
And Jesus said to them, "Because of your 2hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.6But 3from the beginning of creation, 'God made them 4male and female.'75'Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife,a8and 6the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two but one flesh.97What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate."10
And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter.
And he said to them, 8"Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her,12and 9if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery."
1310And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples 11rebuked them.
But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, 12"Let the children come to me; 13do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
