1And it came to pass , that whenJesus had finishedthesesayings, he departedfromGalilee,andcameinto the coasts of JudaeabeyondJordan;2Andgreatmultitudesfollowedhim;and he healedthemthere.3
The Phariseesalsocame unto him,temptinghim,andsaying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put awayhiswifeforeverycause?4And he answered and said unto them,Have yenotread , that he whichmade them at the beginningmadethemmaleandfemale,5Andsaid , For thiscause shall a manleavefatherandmother,and shall cleave to hiswife:and they twain shall beoneflesh?6Wherefore they are no moretwain,butoneflesh.WhatthereforeGod hath joined together , letnotman put asunder .7
They say unto him,Why did Mosesthencommand to give a writing of divorcement,and to putheraway ?
He saith unto them , Moses because of the hardness of yourheartssufferedyou to put awayyourwives:butfrom the beginning it wasnotso.9And I say unto you , Whosoevershall put awayhiswife,except it be forfornication,and shall marryanother, committeth adultery : and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery .10Hisdisciplessay unto him,If the case of the manbesowith his wife, it isnotgood to marry .
11But he said unto them,All men cannotreceivethissaying,save they to whom it is given .12For there are some eunuchs,which were sobornfrom their mother'swomb:and there are some eunuchs,which were made eunuchsofmen:and there beeunuchs,which have madethemselveseunuchsfor the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
