Ezra 10:12  (King James Version)
Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.

As thou hast said
They all resolved to do what Ezra had commanded; and they did put away their wives, even those by whom they had children, (ver. 44,) each of whom doubtless received a portion according
to the circumstances of her husband, and was not turned away desolate. Humanity must have dictated this, and no law of God is contrary to humanity.* so must we do.
