19 Now it came to pass, awhen Jesus had finished these sayings, that He departed from Galilee and came to the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. 2 bAnd great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.
4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who 1made them at the beginning c‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, d‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and ethe two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
7 They said to Him, f“Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?”
8 He said to them, “Moses, because of the ghardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your hwives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 iAnd I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for 2sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
