  Matt 19   Mark 10   Luke   

3

And Pharisees came up to him

2

And Pharisees came up  
  and tested him by asking,   and in order to test him asked,  
  "Is it lawful to divorce one's wife   "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"    
  for any cause?"      

4

He answered,

3

He answered them,  
 

[see Matt 19:7 below]

  "What did Moses command* you?"  
 

 

4 They said,  
 

 [see Matt 19:8 below]

  "Moses allowed* a man  
 

 [see Matt 19:7 below]

  to write a certificate of divorce,*  
      and to put [her] away."*  

 

  5 But Jesus said to them,  
 

[see Matt 19:8 below]

  "For your hardness of heart*  
      he wrote you* this commandment.  
  "Have you not read that      
   he who made them      
   from the beginning 6 But from the beginning of creation,  
  made them male and female.'     `[God] made them male and female.'    
5 and said,      

 

`For this reason   7 `For this reason    
  a man shall leave [his] father and mother   a man shall leave his father and mother  
  and be joined to his wife,   and be joined to his wife,  
  and the two shall become one flesh.'? 8 and the two shall become one flesh.'  

6

So they are no longer two but one flesh.   So they are no longer two but one flesh.  
  What therefore God has joined together,

9

What therefore God has joined together,  
  let not man put asunder."     let not man put asunder."    

7

They <say> to him,  

 

 
  "Why then did Moses command* one  

[see Mark 10:3 above]

 
  to give a certificate of divorce,*  

[see Mark 10:4 above]

 
  and to put her away?"*      

8

He <says> to them,      
  "For your hardness of heart*  

[see Mark 10:5 above]

 
  Moses allowed* you  

[see Mark 10:4 above]

 
  to divorce your wives."      
  but from the beginning it was not so.
