He replied, Have you never read that He Who made them from the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be united firmly (joined inseparably) to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder (separate).
They said to Him, Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce and thus to dismiss and repudiate a wife?
He said to them, Because of the hardness (stubbornness and perversity) of your hearts Moses permitted you to dismiss and repudiate and divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.so .

The disciples said to Him, If the case of a man with his wife is like this, it is neither profitable nor advisable to marry.

And He said to him, Why do you ask Me about the perfectly and essentially good? There is only One Who is good --God. If you would enter into the Life, you must continually keep the commandments.
He said to Him, What Charles B. Williams, The New Testament: A Translation: ``Interrogative of quality."sort of commandments? And Jesus answered, You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness,

But when the young man heard this, he went away sad (grieved and in much distress), for he had great possessions.
And Jesus said to His disciples, Truly I say to you, it will be difficult for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven.
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go into the kingdom of heaven.
