And Pharisees came up to him and rtested him by asking, s“Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, t“Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, u‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and vthe two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. wWhat therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to him, x“Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” He said to them, “Because of your yhardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. zAnd I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”1
