Jeremiah 3:8

8 Namely, that affter I had well sene the aduoutrye of the shrenkinge harlot Israel, I put her awaye, and gaue her a byll of deuorcement. For all this, hir vnfaithfull sister Iuda was not ashamed, but wente backe and played the whore also.

Mark 10:2-12

2 And the Pharises came vnto him, and axed him, yf it were laufull for a man to put awaye his wife, and tempted him withall. 3 But he answered and sayde: What hath Moses comaunded you? 4 They sayde: Moses suffred to wryte a testimoniall of deuorcemet, and to put her awaye. 5 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: Because of ye hardnesse of yor hert dyd Moses wryte you this commaundement. 6 But from the first creacion God made the man and woman. 7 For this cause shal a man leaue his father & mother, and cleue vnto his wife, 8 and they two shalbe one flesh. Now are they not twayne the, but one flesh. 9 Let not man therfore put asunder that, which God hath coupled together. 10 And at home his disciples axed him agayne of ye same. 11 And he sayde vnto the: Who so euer putteth awaye his wife, & marieth another, breaketh wedlocke to her warde. 12 And yf a woma forsake hir hussbande, & be maried to another, she comitteth aduoutrie.

Proverbs 18:1-24

1 Who so hath pleasure to sowe discorde, piketh a quarell in euery thinge. 2 A foole hath no delyte in vnderstodinge, but only in those thinges wherin his herte reioyseth. 3 Where vngodlynes is, there is also di?dayne: & so there foloweth shame & dishonor. 4 The wordes of a mas mouth are like depe waters, and the well of wy?dome is like a full streame. 5 It is not good to regarde ye personne of the vngodly, or to put backe ye righteous in iudgmet. 6 A fooles lippes are euer brawlinge, and his mouth prouoketh vnto batayll. 7 A fooles mouth is his owne destruccion, and his lippes are ye snare for his owne soule. 8 The wordes of a slaunderer are very woudes, and go thorow vnto the ynmost partes of the body. 9 Who so is slouthfull and slacke in his labor, is ye brother of him ye is a waister. 10 The name of ye LORDE is a stronge castell, ye righteous flyeth vnto it, and shalbe saued. 11 But ye rich mas goodes are his stronge holde, yee he taketh them for an hye wall roude aboute him. 12 After pryde cometh destruccio, and honor after lowlynes. 13 He that geueth sentece in a matter before he heare it, is a foole, and worthy to be confounded. 14 A good stomacke dryueth awaye a mas disease, but wha ye sprete is vexed, who maye abyde it? 15 A wyse herte laboureth for knowlege, and a prudent eare seketh vnderstondinge. 16 Liberalite bryngeth a man to honor and worshipe, & setteth him amonge greate men. 17 The righteous accuseth hi self first of all, yf his neghbor come, he shal fynde him. 18 The lot pacifieth ye variauce, & parteth ye mightie asunder. 19 The vnite of brethren is stronger then a castell, and they that holde together are like the barre of a palace. 20 A mans bely shalbe satisfied with the frute of his owne mouth, and with the increase of his lippes shal he be fylled. 21 Death and life stonde in the power of the tonge, he that loueth it, shal enioye the frute therof. 22 Who so fyndeth a wife fyndeth a good thynge, & receaueth an wholsome benefite of the LORDE. 23 The poore maketh supplicacion and prayeth mekely, but the riche geueth a rough answere. 24 A frende that delyteth in loue, doth a man more fredshipe, and sticketh faster vnto him then a brother.

Jeremiah 3:1

1 Comonly, when a man putteth awaye his wife, and she goeth from him, and marieth with another, then the question is: shulde he resorte vnto her eny more after that? Is not this felde then defyled and vnclene? But as for the, thou hast played the harlot with many louers, yet turne agayne to me, saieth the LORDE.

Let not man therfore put a sunder, yt which God hath coupled together. 7 Then sayde they: Why dyd Moses then comaunde to geue a testimonyall of deuorsement, & to put her awaye? 8 He sayde vnto the: Moses (because of ye hardnes of yor hertes) suffred you to put awaye youre wyues: Neuertheles fro the begynnynge it hath not bene so. 9 But I saye vnto you: Whosoeuer putteth awaye his wife (excepte it be for fornicacion) and marieth another, breaketh wedlocke. And who so marieth her yt is deuorced, commytteth aduoutrye. 10 Then sayde his disciples vnto him: Yf ye matter be so betwene ma and wife, the is it not good to mary. 11 But he sayde vnto them: All me can not coprehende yt sayenge, saue they to who it is geue. 12 For there be some gelded, which are so borne from their mothers wombe: and there be some gelded, which are gelded of men: & there be some gelded, which haue gelded the selues for the kyngdome of heauens sake. He that can coprehende it, let him comprehende it.

Euen because that where as the LORDE made a couenaut betwixte ye and the wife off thy youth, thou hast despysed her: Yet is she thyne owne copanyon and maried wife. 15 So dyd not the one, & yet had he an excellent sprete. What dyd then the one? He sought the sede promised of God. Therfore loke well to youre sprete, & let no man despyse ye wife of his youth. 16 Yf thou hatest her, put her awaye, sayeth the LORDE God of Israel and geue her a clothinge for the scorne, sayeth the LORDE of hoostes. Loke well then to youre sprete, and despyse her not.

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 As concernynge the thinges wherof ye wrote vnto me, I answere: It is good for a man not to touche a woman. 2 Neuertheles to avoyde whordome, let euery man haue his awne wife, and let euery woman haue hir awne hussbande. 3 Let the ma geue vnto the wife due beneuolence: likewyse also the wife vnto ye man. 4 The wife hath not power ouer hir awne body, but the hussbande: & likewyse the man hath not power ouer his awne body, but the wife. 5 Withdrawe not yor selues one fro another, excepte it be with the consent of both for a tyme, that ye maye geue youre selues vnto fastinge and prayer, and the come together agayne, lest Sathan tempte you for yor incontynecye. 6 But this I saye of fauoure, and not of commaundemet. 7 Howbeit I wolde rather yt all me were as I am. Neuertheles euery one hath his proper gifte of God: one thus, another so. 8 To them verely yt are vnmaried and to wedowes I saye: It is good for the that they abyde also as I do. 9 But yf they cannot absteyne, let them mary. For it is better to mary, then to burne. 10 But vnto them that are maried, commaunde not I, but the LORDE, that the wife separate not her selfe from the hussbande: 11 but yf she separate her selfe, yt she remayne vnmaried, or be reconcyled to hir hussbande: and let not the hussbande put awaye his wife from him. 12 As for the other, vnto the saye I, not ye LORDE: Yf eny brother haue an vnbeleuynge wife, and she is content to dwell with him, let him not put hir awaye. 13 And yf a woman haue an vnbeleuynge hussbande, and he is content to dwell with her, let her not put him awaye. 14 For the vnbeleuynge hussbande is sanctified by the wife, and the vnbeleuynge wife is sanctified by the hussbande: or els were youre children vncleane, but now are they holy. 15 But yf the vnbeleuynge departe, let him departe. A brother or a sister is not boude in soch cases, but God hath called vs in peace. 16 For what knowest thou O woma, whether thou shalt saue ye ma? Or what knowest thou O man, whether thou shalt saue the woman? 17 But euen as God hath distributed vnto euery one and as the LORDE hath called euery man, so let him walke: and so orden I in all congregacions. 18 Yf eny man be called beynge circumcysed let him take no Heythenshippe vpon him. Yf eny man be called in the Heythenshippe, let him not be circumcysed. 19 Circumcision is nothinge, and vncircumcision is nothinge, but the kepynge of the commaundementes of God. 20 Let euery one abyde in the callynge wherin he is called. 21 Art thou called a seruaut, care not for it: neuertheles yf thou mayest be fre, vse it rather. 22 For he that is called in the LORDE beynge a seruaute, is a fre man of the LORDE. Likewyse he that is called beynge fre, is a seruaut of Christ. 23 Ye are dearly boughte, be not ye the seruauntes of men. 24 Brethren let euery one wherin he is called, therin abyde with God. 25 As concernynge virgins, I haue no commaundement of the LORDE, neuertheles I saye my goodmeanynge, as I haue optayned mercy of the LORDE to be faithfull. 26 I suppose it is good for ye present necessite: for it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bounde vnto a wife, seke not to be lowsed: Art thou lowsed fro a wife, seke not a wife. 28 But yf thou take a wife, thou synnest not. And yf a virgin mary, she synneth not Neuertheles soch shal haue trouble in the flesshe. But I fauoure you. 29 Howbeit this I saye brethren: the tyme is shorte. Farthermore this is the meanynge, yt they which haue wyues, be as though they had none: 30 and they that wepe, be as though they wepte not: and they that reioyse, be as though they reioysed not: & they that bye, be as though they possessed not: 31 & they that vse this worlde, be as though they vsed it not. For the fasshion off this worlde passeth awaye. 32 But I wolde that ye shulde be without care. He that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE,how he maye please the LORDE. 33 But he that is maried, careth for the thinges of the worlde, how he maye please his wife, 34 and is deuyded. A woman and a virgin that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE, that she maye be holy both in body & also in sprete. But she that is maried, careth for ye thinges of the worlde, how she maye please hir hussbande. 35 This I saye for youre profit, not that I wil tangle you in a snare, but for that which is honest and comly vnto you, that ye maye cotynually cleue vnto the LORDE without hynderaunce. 36 But yf eny man thinke that it is vncomly for his virgin yf she passe the tyme of mariage, and if nede so requyre, let him do what he lyst, he synneth not, let the be coupled in mariage. 37 Neuertheles he that purposeth surely in his hert, hauynge no nede, but hath power of his awne wyll, and determeth so in his hert to kepe his virgin, doth well. Fynally, he that ioyneth his virgin in mariage, doth well: 38 but he that ioyneth not his virgin in mariage, doth beter. 39 The wife is bounde to the lawe, as longe as hir hussbande lyueth. But yf hir hussbande slepe, she is at liberty to mary vnto whom she wil, onely that it be done in the LORDE. 40 But she is happier yf she so abyde after my iudgment. I thinke verely that I also haue the sprete of God.

Matthew 19:4-6

4 He answered & sayde vnto the: Haue ye not red, how yt he which made (man) at the begynnynge, made the ma & woma, 5 & sayde: For this cause shal a ma leaue father & mother, & cleue vnto his wife, & they two shalbe one fleshe. 6 Now are they not twayne then, but one flesh. Let not man therfore put a sunder, yt which God hath coupled together.

Deuteronomy 24:1-22

1 Whan a man taketh a wife, and marieth her, and she findeth no fauoure in his eyes because of eny vnclennesse, the shal he wryte a byll of deuorcemet, and geue it her in hir hade, and sende her out of his house. 2 Yf whan she is gone out of his house, she go, and be another mans wyfe, 3 and the same seconde man hate her also, & wryte a byll of deuorcement, and geue it her in hir hande, and sende her out of his house: Or yf the same seconde man dye, which toke her to wife, 4 then hir first husbande that put hir awaie, maie not take hir againe to be his wife, in so moch as she is defyled, for that is abhominacion before the LORDE: that thou make not the londe to synne, which the LORDE thy God hath geuen the to enheritauce. 5 Whan a man hath newly taken a wyfe, he shall not go awarre fare, nether shall he be charged withall. He shal be fre in his house one yeare longe, that he maye be mery wt his wife which he hath taken. 6 Thou shalt no take ye nethermost and vppermost mylstone to pledge, for he hat set ye his lyuynge to pledge. 7 Yf eny man be founde that stealeth one of his brethren, from amonge the childre of Israel, and setteth him to pledge, or selleth him soch a thefe shal dye, that thou maiest put awaye the euell from the. 8 Kepe the from the plage of leprosie, that thou obserue diligently and do acordynge vnto all that the prestes the Leuites teach the, as I haue commaunded them, yt shal ye obserue and do therafter. 9 Remembre what the LORDE thy God dyd vnto Miriam by the waye, whan ye were come out of Egipte. 10 Yf thou lendest yi brother eny dett, thou shalt not go into his house, and take a pledge, 11 but shalt stonde without: and he, to who thou lendest, shal brynge out his pledge vnto the. 12 But yf it be a poore body, thou shalt not lye downe to slepe, with his pledge, 13 but shalt delyuer him his pledge agayne, whan the Sonne goeth downe, that he maye slepe in his awne rayment, and blesse the, so shall the same be rekened vnto the for righteousnes before the LORDE thy God. 14 Thou shalt not withdrawe the hyre of ye nedye and poore amonge thy brethren, or straunger that is in thy londe, 15 or within thy gates, but shalt geue him his hyre the same daye, that the Sonne go not downe theron, for so moch as he is nedye, and his life susteyned therwith: that he call not vpon the LORDE agaynst the, and it be synne vnto the. 16 The fathers shal not dye for the children, ner the childre for the fathers, but euery one shal dye for his awne synne. 17 Thou shalt not wrest the righte of the straunger and of the fatherlesse. And ye wedowes rayment shalt thou not take to pledge: 18 For thou shalt remembre, that thou wast a seruaunte in Egipte, and how that ye LORDE thy God delyuered the from thence, therfore commaunde I the to do this. 19 Whan thou hast reaped downe thine haruest in the felde, and hast forgotten a shefe in the felde, thou shalt not turne agayne to fetch it, but it shal be for the straunger, ye fatherlesse and the wedowe, that the LORDE thy God maye blesse the in all the workes of thy handes. 20 Whan thou hast plucked thine Olyue trees, thou shalt not plucke them vp cleane afterwarde: it shal be for the straunger, the fatherlesse and the wedowe. 21 Whan thou hast gathered thy vynyarde, thou shalt not gather it vp cleane afterwarde: it shalbe for the straunger, the fatherlesse and the wedowe. 22 And thou shalt remembre, that thou wast a seruaunt in the londe of Egipte: therfore comaunde I the to do this.
