10:1 It’s God that joins husband and wife

(Mat. 19:1-12, Luke 16:18)

10Then Yeshua left Capernaum and went down to the Yudean area and across the Yordan river. Again the crowds followed him, and he taught them just like he usually did.

2Some from the Pharisee party approached Yeshua to check him out and asked, “Does the law allow a husband to dismiss his wife?”

3Well, what law did Moses give to you all?he asked.

4[ref]They answered, “Moses said that a husband is allowed to write a statement of divorce and dismiss his wife with it.”

5Yeshua responded, “Yes, he wrote that law because he saw your stubborn desires, 6[ref]but God made both men and women right at the beginning. 7[ref]As a result, a man leaves his parents and joins together with his wife 8and the couple become a single unit. So there’s no longer two of them, but only one. 9So if it’s God who joins them together like that, no person has the authority to separate them.

10Back in the house again, his apprentices asked about this. 11[ref]And Yeshua told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another person, commits adultery towards his wife.12And likewise if the wife divorces her husband and marries another person, she is committing adultery towards her husband.

10And from_there having_risen_up, he_is_coming into the regions of_ the _Youdaia and beyond the Yordanaʸs/(Yarəddēn), and again crowds are_going_with to him, and he_was_teaching them again as he_had_been_accustomed.
2And the_Farisaios_party having_approached, were_asking him:
- Is_it_permitting for_a_husband to_send_away a_wife?
Testing him.
3And he answering said to_them:
What commanded Mōsaʸs/(Mosheh) to_you_all?
4And they said, Mōsaʸs permitted to_write a_scroll of_divorce and to_send_away.
5And the Yaʸsous/(Yəhōshūˊa) said to_them:
He_wrote the this command for_you_all for the hard_heart of_you_all, 6but from the_beginning of_creation, he_made them male and female.
7On_account of_this a_man will_be_leaving the father of_him and the mother, and will_be_being_joined wife of_him 8and the two will_be into one flesh.
So_that they_are no_longer two, but one flesh.
9Therefore what the god joined_together, let_ a_person not _be_separating.
10And in the house again, the apprentices/followers were_asking him concerning this.
11And he_is_saying to_them:
Whoever wishfully may_send_away the wife of_him and may_marry another, is_causing_adultery against her.
12And if she having_sent_away the husband of_her, may_marry another, she_is_causing_adultery.
