5“It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. 6“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’Gen. 1:277‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,Some early manuscripts do not have and be united to his wife.8and the two will become one flesh.’Gen. 2:24So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
