Matthew 19

1 And it came about that after saying these words, Jesus went away from Galilee, and came into the parts of Judaea on the other side of Jordan.

2 And a great number went after him; and he made them well there.

3 And certain Pharisees came to him, testing him, and saying, Is it right for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

4 And he said in answer, Have you not seen in the Writings, that he who made them at the first made them male and female, and said,

5 For this cause will a man go away from his father and mother, and be joined to his wife; and the two will become one flesh?

6 So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Then let not that which has been joined by God be parted by man.

7 They say to him, Why then did Moses give orders that a husband might give her a statement in writing and be free from her?

8 He says to them, Moses, because of your hard hearts, let you put away your wives: but it has not been so from the first.

9 And I say to you, Whoever puts away his wife for any other cause than the loss of her virtue, and takes another, is a false husband: and he who takes her as his wife when she is put away, is no true husband to her.

10 The disciples say to him, If this is the position of a man in relation to his wife, it is better not to be married.

11 But he said to them, Not all men are able to take in this saying, but only those to whom it is given.

12 For there are men who, from birth, were without sex: and there are some who were made so by men: and there are others who have made themselves so for the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to take it, let him take it.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
