3Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’Gen. 1:275and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’Gen. 2:24?
6So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
