Mark 10

Marriage and Divorce

1 Jesus got up and went to the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. Crowds gathered around him again and, as he usually did, he taught them. Some Pharisees came to test him and asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”

He replied, “What did Moses command you?”

They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.” [1]

But Jesus told them, “He wrote this command for you because of your hard hearts. But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female. [2] For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. [3] So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

10 In the house his disciples asked him about this again. 11 He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 12 If she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

Jesus Loves Little Children

13 Some people began bringing little children to Jesus so that he would touch them. But the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said, “Let the little children come to me! Do not hinder them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Amen I tell you: Whoever will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the little children in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
