1 He arose from there and came into the borders of Yehudah and beyond the Yarden. Multitudes came together to him again. As he usually did, he taught them again.
2 Perushim came to him testing him, and asked him, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"
3 He answered, "What did Moshe command you?"
4 They said, "Moshe allowed a certificate of divorce to be written, and to divorce her."
5 But Yeshua said to them, "For your hardness of heart, he wrote you this mitzvah.
6 But from the beginning of the creation, 'God made them male and female.
7 For this cause will a man leave his father and mother, and will join to his wife,
8 and the two will become one flesh,' so that they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
10 In the house, his talmidim asked him again about the same matter.
11 He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, commits adultery against her.
12 If a woman herself divorces her husband, and marries another, she commits adultery."
