And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; MT 19:1 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. MT 19:2 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting [testing] him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away [divorce] his wife for every cause [any reason]? MT 19:3 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, MT 19:4 And said, For this cause [reason WU] shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain [two] shall be one flesh? MT 19:5 Wherefore [so that] they are no more twain [two], but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder [tear apart]. MT 19:6 RELATIONS Divorce They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? MT 19:7 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered [allowed] you to put away [divorce] your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. MT 19:8 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away [divorce] his wife, except it be for fornication [sexual immorality], and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso [he who] marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. MT 19:9 RELATIONS Divorce His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. MT 19:10 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive [accept WU] this saying, save [but only WU] they to whom it is given. MT 19:11 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of [by] men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him [should] receive it. MT 19:12 RELATIONS Divorce
Then were there brought unto him [Jesus WU] little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. MT 19:13 But Jesus said, Suffer [allow the] little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. MT 19:14 HELPS BELIEVE Humility
