When a aman hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found †some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of †divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. 3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; 4 bHer former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
Heb. matter of nakedness. Rather as ch. 23:14 marg.
