14  oYet ye say, Wherefore?

Because pthe Lord hath been witness between thee and qthe wife of thy youth,

Against whom thou hast cdealt treacherously:

Yet is she rthy companion, and rthe wife of thy covenant.

15  And sdid not he make one? Yet had he the ||residue of the spirit.

And wherefore one? That he might seek ta godly seed.

uTherefore take heed to your spirit,

And let none cdeal ||treacherously against qthe wife of his youth.

16  For vthe Lord, the God of Israel, saith ||that he hateth putting away:

For one covereth violence wwith his garment, saith the Lord of hosts:

uTherefore take heed to your spirit, that ye cdeal not treacherously.

17  xYe have wearied the Lord ywith your words.

oYet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him?

yWhen ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord,

And zhe delighteth in them;

Or, aWhere is the God of judgment?
