Mark 10:1–12

Teaching About Divorce

10 zAnd he left there and went ato the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again. And again, as was his custom, he taught them.

And Pharisees came up and in order bto test him asked, c“Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” They said, d“Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce and to send her away.” And Jesus said to them, “Because of your ehardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. But ffrom the beginning of creation, ‘God made them gmale and female.’ h‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife,1 and ithe two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. jWhat therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11 And he said to them, k“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her, 12 and lif she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”
