Jesus on Divorce in Matthew 19:3-11 In The King James and Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Versions

Matthew 19:3-11 

1 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;          
And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.   (KJV)

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?   (KJV)   

3)   And the Pharisees approached and came up alonside with Him,
       piercingly trying - piercingly testing - tempting 
       [soliciting (Him) to sin]

       and laying down definite words, saying to Him,
           'If perhaps it is out of being -  If perhaps it is not permissible
            for a man to set loose - to unbind (himself from) 
            the wife of him for every asking - every request?'


And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,    (KJV)    

4)    Then He dicerning answering, said to them, 
             'Certainly not.'

             'Did you not read and come to know (thereby)
              that He  making - forming - producing - bringing about
              from (the) Beginning
              male and female 
              made them - formed them - produced them - created them?'

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?    (KJV)  

5)   And He said,
          'For that account - For this reason - For this cause
           therefore, a man shall leave behind and forsake / abandon
           the father and the mother,
           and shall be glued and made to cohere up alonside with
           to the wife of him,
           and shall be the two   (become) into one flesh,

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.   (KJV)     

6)   So that certainly not any longer are (they) still two,
       but on the contrary - but rather
       her one flesh.

       [ "her one":  
        The Greek here uses mia, the feminine for "one", making the
         intent of Jesus context that if a husband sins, he commits 
         adultery against the wife in GOD's original design.   The wife
         for the husband becomes the extention of himself as "his
         one" flesh, in the Original Design, and as the husband in
         marrying becomes "her one flesh" in a spiritual union, 
         as if they shared a uniting where their individuality now 
         becomes thrice joined: 
          1) Husband,  
          2) Wife, 
          3) The uniting spirit of the husband in his wife,
          4) The uniting spirit of the wife in her husband;
          5)  The husband and wife as ONE spirit,  
                as if one inseparable entity.

         Secondly, it is a reminder that Eve, who was created from 
         Adam's rib, the only bone in the human body that can 
         regenerate itself  -- which opens all sorts of medical 
         science potential in pursuing that observation -- was a 
         wife who was of the same one flesh was as if joined in 
         perfect harmonious union to the side of her husband, 
         as one called up alongeside with Adam as his help as 
         well as his mate acting as one with her husband.]*  

         Thereupon - Now then,
         Whom GOD  has yoked and paired together uniting (them),
          man may not perhaps  sever and separate.'

They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?   (KJV)     

They laying down definite words say unto Him,
     'Why then did Moses 
       emphasize a command to finish and carry through, 
       to (of his own good will and accord) give
       a scroll     [in this instance,  "a formal bill"] 
       of being set and placed to stand away from  / of divorce
       and to unbind her and set her loose /
       and to let loose from her and send 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.    (KJV)   

8)   He lays down definite woirds and says to them,
           'Because Moses, up alongside with the 
            dried up and stiff heartedness of you
            turned upon and therefore allowed you
            to unbind and set loose    the wives of you..

            From the Beginning, then, it certainly 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.   (KJV) 

9)   I lay down definite words and say then to you,
       That whosever unbinds and sets loose the wife of him,
        if perhaps not upon 

        [the grounds of - for the cause of ]

        and shall marry another,   
        commits adultery.

        And he marrying her unbound and set loose

       [inferring back to she who was set loose on the circumstantial guilt 
        of fornication enough to convince two of a three judge panel that 
        she was guilty of fornication, though not caught in the very act]*

        commits adultery.  

10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.   (KJV)

10)  The Disciples - Pupils - Learners  of Him
        lay down definite words and say to Him,
            'If perhaps it is as in this manner -
             If perhaps it is thus,

             is the matter - charge - crime - fault    of the man
             [because that it was]
             certainly not to any profit, advantage, or gain
             to marry,    to bear up and endure together
             [in the first place]?'

11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.   (KJV)  

11) Then He said to them,
         'Certainly not all take in, receive, hold, and 
          make room for this word.

          But on the contrary,
          only to whom it is given. '

My Further Comments:  

* In the Scripture, there is an apparent delineation that needs to be understood in regard to following the LORD.    There is the original design on how GOD designed things to be, and then there is on a variety of issues a lower threshold of what is or what may be permissible.    Jesus / Yeshua focuses on what the original design was intended to be, and He does so because the Pharisees and other legalists had a tendency to try to not only rewrite the words of Moses, but to put words in GOD's mouth and lie about what the past was before GOD gave Israel  and the world the 10 Commandments, as the rabbinic legalists tried to alter even the past through what this rabbi declared saying this and that rabbi saying that was, as if by man's opinions they could over-ride what GOD originally intended and then later allowed through man's fall (in order to help bring him around and overcome sin and the sin nature).  

Divorce is not what was allowed or intended for the children of Adam and human history on up until the Law of Moses in circa 1551 B.C. following.    Under certain circumstances, while it was permissible, the better option would be to separate and live alone from one another until husband and wife could be reconciled and reunited.  But humanity and the sin nature is more complicated than that.  

Unlike those who make excuses and rework the context to make it fit not offending today's highly divorced society, I choose to follow the Scripture and  the intent of what it is saying to convey a more revealing and honest telling of what GOD wants people to know through His book. 

Regarding the wife in the marriage relationship,  Jesus says, the husband is HER flesh, and by even the act of fornication, a husband who has any sexual relations with anyone but her, well he commits adultery against her.  As if he spiritually extended her sexually into any act he alone commits, and impunes her integrity and virtue spiritually in any act of fornication he does, even if she is at first entirely unaware of the act(s).  Certain Rabbinic and Christian scholars try to excuse their own sexual sins in saying that it is impossible for a man to commit adultery.  Bullshit.  If a currently married husband of one wife was caught in the very act of having sex with another man's current wife in ancient Israel, BOTH were taken to be judged, condemned, and then stoned to death, BOTH the man and the woman as adulterers.     

"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, 
 even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor's wife,
the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death."
Levitcus 20:10 KJV  

 This above verse demonstrates that men CAN be called adultererss and and commit "adultery.


If a man divorces a wife and marries to another woman, the first wife who was innocent of any charge of adultery during the marriage has to herself 2 options as the innocent and wounded party:
  1)  to remain set apart as a divorced single, and wait and remarry the husband as allowed her under the Law of Moses, or
2)  if after the husband has committed fornication and / or adultery against her, she can marry and cleave to another husband, but if so, she must forever give up all claims to any marriage or sexual relations of any kind to the first husband, because the second husband now becomes her flesh to whom she now cleaves, and commits to for the rest of her life.  It is permissible for her to marry without the stigma of adultery in such a circumstance.  A single man or widower immediately meets the qualifications of being permissible to marry may marry her without the stigma of adultery.  A divorced man must also meet the same threshold as described for the innocent woman in order for it to be a permissible marriage in what Scripture allows for.   Only those Temple Priests in line to be High Priest or a High Priest himself may not be allowed to marry her as according to Leviticus 21:14.  

Under the Law of Moses, divorce was ONLY supposed to be for the cause of fornication, the evidence thereof present which could be submitted to a Jewish Court, even if the adulterer himself was not present to be caught in the very act to be taken, along with the cheating wife, to be judged, condemned, and stoned to death by the entire community.  Whether it was a bed sheet with another man's fresh sperm after a long absent returning husband just coming home to find such or some other evidence such as her being pregnant in a timeframe that made it impossible for the husband to be the father in that absence, or such perhaps to this effect, that was accepted circumstantial evidence that allowed a husband to be an injured party, and in such circumstances, anyone who married that kind of guilty wife who was so put away, fell into the category that made it as the kind of woman who it is NOT permissible to marry under the Law of Moses.  

If a man chooses to marry a woman who is an innocent party of a divorce action, whose husband sets her loose and remarries, he must not interfere in her feelings so as to prevent her that option of choosing to wait for her husband she married.   Jesus says, who GOD has joined together, let not man separate.  If the woman as the innocent party makes the free-will choice to pursue a marriage with another man after her husband has remarried, she must be so committed to fidelity in the new marriage to love, honor, trust, obey the new husband as if she were never married a first time.  

Now the following is my viewpoint regarding a proper appreciation of what should be the strived for ever present marriage state.  He, the new husband, must be willing to truly love, tenderly and lovingly honor, lovingly cherish, and ever-present in tender forgetfulness of all her past in such a way that she is to him  is ever in a perfectly clean and fresh slate of purity, building a marriage on believing trust and ever overflowing  loving-kindness in which just being in the presence of one another, there is as if joy unspeakable in the emotion, mental state, and well-being between the two.  Wives need to be caressed in both words and ever present loving actions of care, consideration, little and very often courtesies, and an ever-present willingness to bring about a deep joy and satisfaction of the wife for the union, as even the husband joy's and happily feeds on her happiness as she in her joy happily feeds on his joy and happiness and full contentment in her. 

For those who still might not get it without bringing it down to a base level they more think at and want it to be explained in:  
marriage is to be as if in a state
 where even just being together 
mentally and emotionally for the husband and wife 
as well as physically in the presence of 
and especially in the many forms of touch and embracings 
of one another,  is a constant ecstatic overflowing love and joy as if they are in "the ever present orgasm," 
with plenty of those literal and fully accepted and encouraged other ones in the what would normally be the very often sexual activities of the two  with one another as one flesh as well.   

The Scripture allows couples to set their amounts as to the sexual activities, and allows for (while the Apostle Paul recommends that it be ) as often daily as needed by one mate of the other except for when the woman is menstruating, or it is a set aside time for worship and prayer, including certain types of fastings.
