6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'[1] 7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[2] 8 and the two will become one flesh.'[3]So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Mark 10:6-9

Commentary on Mark 10:1-12

(Read Mark 10:1-12)

Wherever Jesus was, the people flocked after him in crowds, and he taught them. Preaching was Christ's constant practice. He here shows that the reason why Moses' law allowed divorce, was such that they ought not to use the permission; it was only for the hardness of their hearts. God himself joined man and wife together; he has fitted them to be comforts and helps for each other. The bond which God has tied, is not to be lightly untied. Let those who are for putting away their wives consider what would become of themselves, if God should deal with them in like manner.
