Matthew 19:7
Context
Teaching About Divorce

1And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; 2And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. 3The Pharisees also came to him, tempting him, and saying to him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4And he answered and said to them, Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall join to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh? 6Why they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. 7They say to him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorce, and to put her away? 8He said to them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9And I say to you, Whoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoever marries her which is put away does commit adultery. 10His disciples say to him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11But he said to them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
