Mark 10.11 AV
And he saith¹ unto them,
Whosoever shall put away² his wife³,
and marry another,
committeth adultery⁴ against her.
¹) Affirm over, to point out with words.
²) Greek: ἀπολύω (apoluo) literally “to set free”. Also translated with send away, let depart, dismiss. It is used of divorce, to dismiss from the house.
³) The Greek word used here is used for a woman of any age, whether a virgin, or married, or a widow. In this case it means a wife.
⁴) To have unlawful intercourse.
And He said to them, Whoever dismisses (repudiates and divorces) his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; [AMP] And he said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her, [ESV] Jesus gave it to them straight: "A man who divorces his wife so he can marry someone else commits adultery against her. [MSB] And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. [KJV] He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. [NIV] He told them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her. [NLT] So He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. [NKJV]
Some further information
In a private circle (Mark 10:10), Jesus concretizes His words about the inseparable nature of marriage by means of a general example:
When a man is divorced from his wife and then marries another woman again, then, even though the previous marriage was terminated with an official divorce certificate, he commits adultery (with respect to the first marriage), because the first marriage is in God eyes is still valid, and should not have been released (1 Corinthians 7:10,11).
So in that position, Jesus goes beyond the law of Moses, back to God’s original intention for marriage, and underlines its indissolubility.
