<< Genesis 2:24 >>



  • Matthew 19:3-9
    Some Pharisees came to test Jesus. They asked,“ Does the Law allow a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?”Jesus replied,“ Haven’t you read that in the beginning the Creator‘ made them male and female’?( Genesis 1:27)He said,‘ That’s why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two will become one.’( Genesis 2:24)They are no longer two, but one. So no one should separate what God has joined together.”They asked,“ Then why did Moses command that a man can give his wife a letter of divorce and send her away?”Jesus replied,“ Moses let you divorce your wives because you were stubborn. But it was not this way from the beginning.Here is what I tell you. Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery. A man may divorce his wife only if she has not been faithful to him.”
  • Ephesians 5:28-31
    In the same way, husbands should love their wives. They should love them as they love their own bodies. Any man who loves his wife loves himself.After all, no one ever hated their own body. Instead, they feed and care for their body. And this is what Christ does for the church.We are parts of his body.Scripture says,“ That’s why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two will become one.”( Genesis 2:24)
  • Mark 10:6-12
    “ But at the beginning of creation, God‘ made them male and female.’( Genesis 1:27)‘ That’s why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.The two of them will become one.’( Genesis 2:24) They are no longer two, but one.So no one should separate what God has joined together.”When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.He answered,“ What if a man divorces his wife and gets married to another woman? He commits adultery against her.And what if she divorces her husband and gets married to another man? She commits adultery.”
  • Romans 7:2
    For example, by law a married woman remains married as long as her husband lives. But suppose her husband dies. Then the law that joins her to him no longer applies.
  • 1 Peter 3 1-1 Peter 3 7
    Wives, follow the lead of your own husbands. Suppose some of them don’t believe God’s word. Then let them be won to Christ without words by seeing how their wives behave.Let them see how pure you are. Let them see that your lives are full of respect for God.Fancy hairstyles don’t make you beautiful. Wearing gold jewelry or fine clothes doesn’t make you beautiful.Instead, your beauty comes from inside you. It is the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. Beauty like this doesn’t fade away. God places great value on it.This is how the holy women of the past used to make themselves beautiful. They put their hope in God. And they followed the lead of their own husbands.Sarah was like that. She obeyed Abraham. She called him her master. Do you want to be like her? Then do what is right. And don’t give in to fear.Husbands, consider the needs of your wives. They are weaker than you. So treat them with respect. Honor them as those who will share with you the gracious gift of life. Then nothing will stand in the way of your prayers.
  • 1 Corinthians 6 16-1 Corinthians 6 17
    When you join yourself to a prostitute, you become one with her in body. Don’t you know this? Scripture says,“ The two will become one.”( Genesis 2:24)But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one with him in spirit.
  • 1 Corinthians 7 10-1 Corinthians 7 11
    I give a command to those who are married. It is a direct command from the Lord, not from me. A wife must not leave her husband.But if she does, she must not get married again. Or she can go back to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
  • Proverbs 31:10
    Who can find an excellent woman? She is worth far more than rubies.
  • Malachi 2:14-16
    You ask,“ Why?” It’s because the Lord is holding you responsible. He watches how you treat the wife you married when you were young. You have been unfaithful to her. You did it even though she’s your partner. You promised to stay married to her. And the Lord was a witness to it.Hasn’t the one God made the two of you one also? Both of you belong to him in body and spirit. And why has the one God made you one? Because he wants his children to be like him. So be careful. Don’t be unfaithful to the wife you married when you were young.“ Suppose a man hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord God of Israel.“ Then he is harming the one he should protect,” says the Lord who rules over all. So be careful. And don’t be unfaithful.
  • Proverbs 12:4
    An excellent woman is her husband’s crown. But a wife who brings shame is like sickness in his bones.
  • 1 Corinthians 7 2-1 Corinthians 7 4
    But since sexual sin is happening, each man should sleep with his own wife. And each woman should sleep with her own husband.A husband should satisfy his wife’s needs. And a wife should satisfy her husband’s needs.The wife’s body does not belong only to her. It also belongs to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong only to him. It also belongs to his wife.
