MARK 10:1-16

AND RISING UP FROM THENCE, HE COMETH INTO THE COASTS OF JUDEA BEYOND THE JORDAN: AND THE MULTITUDES FLOCK TO HIM AGAIN. AND AS HE WAS ACCUSTOMED, HE TAUGHT THEM AGAIN. [2] AND THE PHARISEES COMING TO HIM ASKED HIM: IS IT LAWFUL FOR A MAN TO PUT AWAY HIS WIFE? TEMPTING HIM.[3] BUT HE ANSWERING, SAITH TO THEM: WHAT DID MOSES COMMAND YOU? [4] WHO SAID: MOSES PERMITTED TO WRITE A BILL OF DIVORCE, AND TO PUT HER AWAY. [5] TO WHOM JESUS ANSWERING, SAID: BECAUSE OF THE HARDNESS OF YOUR HEART HE WROTE YOU THAT PRECEPT.[6] BUT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION, GOD MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE. [7] FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER; AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE. [8] AND THEY TWO SHALL BE IN ONE FLESH. THEREFORE NOW THEY ARE NOT TWO, BUT ONE FLESH. [9] WHAT THEREFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER. [10] AND IN THE HOUSE AGAIN HIS DISCIPLES ASKED HIM CONCERNING THE SAME THING.[11] AND HE SAITH TO THEM: WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE AND MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY AGAINST HER. [12] AND IF THE WIFE SHALL PUT AWAY HER HUSBAND, AND BE MARRIED TO ANOTHER, SHE COMMITTETH ADULTERY. [13] AND THEY BROUGHT TO HIM YOUNG CHILDREN, THAT HE MIGHT TOUCH THEM. AND THE DISCIPLES REBUKED THEM THAT BROUGHT THEM. [14] WHOM WHEN JESUS SAW, HE WAS MUCH DISPLEASED, AND SAITH TO THEM: SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME, AND FORBID THEM NOT; FOR OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD. [15] AMEN I SAY TO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LITTLE CHILD, SHALL NOT ENTER INTO IT.[16] AND EMBRACING THEM, AND LAYING HIS HANDS UPON THEM, HE BLESSED THEM.
