You ask,16 "Why?" It is because the LORD is the witness17 between you and the wife of your youth.18 You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.19
Has not the LORD made the two of you one?20 You belong to him in body and spirit. And why has he made you one? Because he was seeking godly offspring.c21 So be on your guard,22 and do not be unfaithful23 to the wife of your youth.
