|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 And because of this, a man leaves father and mother and is firmly bonded to his wife, becoming one flesh - no longer two bodies but one.
5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh' ?
