<< Genesis 2:24 >>



  • Matthew 19:3-9
    And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking,“ Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?”He answered,“ Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,and said,‘ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast 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 separate.”They said to him,“ Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?”He said to them,“ Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”
  • Ephesians 5:28-31
    In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,because we are members of his body.“ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”
  • Mark 10:6-12
    But from the beginning of creation,‘ God made them male and female.’‘ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast 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 separate.”And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter.And he said to them,“ Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her,and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”
  • Romans 7:2
    For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.
  • 1 Peter 3 1-1 Peter 3 7
    Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives,when they see your respectful and pure conduct.Do not let your adorning be external— the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening.Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
  • 1 Corinthians 6 16-1 Corinthians 6 17
    Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written,“ The two will become one flesh.”But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
  • 1 Corinthians 7 10-1 Corinthians 7 11
    To the married I give this charge( not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband( but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife.
  • Proverbs 31:10
    An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
  • Malachi 2:14-16
    But you say,“ Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant.Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth.“ For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”
  • Proverbs 12:4
    An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
  • 1 Corinthians 7 2-1 Corinthians 7 4
    But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
