<< Genesis 2:24 >>



  • Matthew 19:3-9
    The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made[ them] at the beginning made them male and female,And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except[ it be] for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
  • Ephesians 5:28-31
    So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
  • Mark 10:6-12
    But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same[ matter].And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
  • Romans 7:2
    For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to[ her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of[ her] husband.
  • 1 Peter 3 1-1 Peter 3 7
    Likewise, ye wives,[ be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;While they behold your chaste conversation[ coupled] with fear.Whose adorning let it not be that outward[ adorning] of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;But[ let it be] the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible,[ even the ornament] of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with[ them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
  • 1 Corinthians 6 16-1 Corinthians 6 17

    And unto the married I command,[ yet] not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from[ her] husband:But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to[ her] husband: and let not the husband put away[ his] wife.
  • Proverbs 31:10
    Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price[ is] far above rubies.
  • Malachi 2:14-16
    Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet[ is] she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for[ one] covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
  • Proverbs 12:4
    A virtuous woman[ is] a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed[ is] as rottenness in his bones.
  • 1 Corinthians 7 2-1 Corinthians 7 4
    Nevertheless,[ to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
