"I hate divorce," says the Lord God of Israel.
Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts
were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.
It has been said, "Anyone who divorces his wife must give
her a certificate of divorce." But I tell you that anyone
who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness,
causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who
marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife,
except for marital unfaithfulness,
and marries another woman commits adultery.
And if she divorces her husband and marries another man,
she commits adultery.
Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman
commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced
woman commits adultery.
To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord):
A wife must not separate from her husband. But if
she does, she must remain unmarried or else be
reconciled to her husband. And a husband
must not divorce his wife.
(1 Corinthians 7:10-11)7
If any brother has a wife who is not a believer
and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her.
(1 Corinthians 7:12)8
And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and
he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him.
(1 Corinthians 7:13)9
But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing
man or woman is not bound in such circumstances;
God has called us to live in peace.
(1 Corinthians 7:15)10
Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent
and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer.
Then come together again so that Satan will not
tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
(1 Corinthians 7:5)11
A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives.
But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone else
she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord.
(1 Corinthians 7:39)12
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray.
Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.
The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters,
but a man of understanding draws them out.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another
Counselor to be with you forever-the Spirit of truth.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes,
he will guide you into all truth.
Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments,
because you know they produce quarrels.
(2 Timothy 2:23)18
If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially
for his immediate family, he has denied the faith
and is worse than an unbeliever.
(1 Timothy 5:8)19
