13 Then little children were brought to him, in order that he might lay his hands on them and might pray for them, and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, Allow the little children, and do not forbid them to come to me; for of such is the kingdom of the heavens. 15 And having laid his hands on them, he traveled from there.

1 Peter 3:1-22

1 Likewise, wives be subject to your own husbands; in order that, even if some are disobedient to the word, they might be gained without a word through the conduct of their wives; 2 having eye-witnessed your pure conduct in fear; 3 whose adornment, do not let it be the outward adornment of braiding the hair, and of placing on of gold things or of clothing of expensive garments; 4 but let it be the hidden human things of the heart, in the incorruptible clothing of a meek and quiet spirit, which is greatly-valued in God’s sight. 5 For so, the holy women, those also hoping in God, were previously adorning themselves, being subject to their own husbands; 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord; whose children you became, doing good and not fearing any terror.
7 Likewise the husbands, dwell together with your wives according to the knowledge, bestowing honor to the wife, as the weaker vessel, as also being joint heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.
8 Now to the end, all be like-minded, sympathetic, loving the brethren, affectionate, friendly; 9 not repaying evil in exchange-for evil or reviling in exchange-for reviling, but instead, speaking well of others; knowing that you were called for this, in order that you should inherit a blessing. 10 For he who wills to love life and to see good days, let his tongue cease from speaking evil, and also his lips not to speak treachery. 11 Let him shun evil and let him practice good. Let him seek peace and let him pursue it, 12 because the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and his ears are toward their supplication. But the face of the Lord is against those who are practicing evil.
13 And who is he who will be mistreating you, if you become imitators of the good one? 14 But even if you should suffer because of righteousness, you are fortunate. But do not fear because of their fear, nor should you be disturbed; 15 but make the Lord God holy in your hearts, and be ready habitually with a defense to everyone who is asking you for a reason concerning the hope which is in you, with meekness and fear; 16 having a good conscience; in order that, in what they are speaking against you as evildoers, they may be ashamed who are railing at your good conduct in Christ. 17 For it is better to suffer doing good than for doing evil, (if the will of God wills it). 18 Because Christ also suffered once for all on behalf of our sins, the righteous on behalf of the unrighteous, in order that he might lead you to God; having indeed been slain in the flesh, but was given-life in the Spirit; 19 in which, he also traveled and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 when they previously were disobedient, when the patience of God was waiting in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water; 21 which is our counterpart, immersion, saves us also now, not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the demand of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ; 22 who is at the right hand of God, having traveled into heaven; with messengers and authorities and powers having been made subject to him.

Matthew 19:6

6 So-that they are no more two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together; let man not separate.

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman sexually. \ulnone\nosupersub 2 But, because of fornications, let each man have his own wife and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband give to the wife her owed benevolence and likewise also the wife give to the husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband, and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife. 5 Do not deprive one another, except from agreement for some time, in order that you may occupy yourselves to fasting and to prayer, and you may come to the same again, in order that the Adversary may not tempt you because of your shortage of self-control. 6 But I am saying this according to concession, not according to commandment. 7 For I wish that all men were even as I myself am. But each one has his own gift from God, indeed the one is so and the one is thus.
8 But I am saying to the unmarried and to the widows, it is good for them if they remain even as I am. 9 But if they do not exercise self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to be on fire. 10 But I command to those who have married, (not I, but the Lord): the wife is not to be separated from her husband, 11 (but even if she is separated, let her remain unmarried, or let her be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband is not to leave his wife.
12 But to the rest I say, (not the Lord); if some brother has an unbelieving wife and she consents to dwell with him, let him not leave her. 13 And if a wife who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been made holy by the wife and the unbelieving wife has been made holy by the husband. Consequently, your children were unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbelieving spouse separates, let the one separate; the brother or the sister has not been enslaved in such things. Now God has called us in peace. 16 For what do you know O wife, if you will be saving your husband? Or what do you know O husband, if you will be saving your wife?
17 Except as God has divided to each one, as the Lord has called each, so let him walk. And so I myself am commanding in all the congregations. 18 Was anyone called being circumcised? Let him not be uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 20 Let each one remain in that calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called being a bondservant? Let it not be a care to you, but if you are also able to become free; use it rather. 22 For he who was called in the Lord, having been a bondservant, is the Lord’s freedman; likewise, the free one who was called, is Christ’s bondservant. 23 You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in this thing in which he was called.
25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment from the Lord, but I am giving my viewpoint, as one who has been shown-mercy by the Lord to be faithful. 26 Therefore I suppose this to be good, because of the present calamity; that it is good for a man to be thus. 27 Have you been bound to a wife? Do not seek divorce. Have you been loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you marry, you have not sinned, and if the virgin marries, she has not sinned. But such will have affliction in the flesh, and I would spare you.
29 But I am saying this, brethren, the time is limited, furthermore it is that both those who have wives may be as though they had none; 30 and those who weep, as though not weeping, and those who rejoice, as though not rejoicing, and those who buy, as though not having; 31 and those who use this world, as though not making full use of it; for the fashion of this world is passing away.
32 But I wish for you to be carefree. He who is unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, how he will be pleasing the Lord; 33 but he who is married is anxious for the things of the world, how he may please the wife. 34 He has been divided. The unmarried woman, (also the virgin), is anxious for the things is of the Lord, in order that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, but she who is married is anxious for the things of the world, how she will be pleasing the husband. 35 Now, I say this thing is advantageous for yourselves, not in order that I may cast a noose upon you, but a non-distraction toward the decent, and devoted in the Lord.
36 But if anyone supposes he is behaving improperly over his virgin, if she is beyond her prime and thus it ought to happen, let her do what she wills; she is not sinning; let them marry.
37 But he who stands, grounded in his heart, not having necessity, but has the authority concerning his own will, and he has decided this in his own heart to keep his own virgin, he does well. 38 So-then both he who betroths does well, and he who does not betroth is doing better.
39 A wife has been bound by law inasmuch time as the husband is living, but if the husband has fallen-asleep, she is free to be married to whom she wills, but only in the Lord. 40 But she is fortunate if she remains so, according to my viewpoint, and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

Matthew 19:5

5 And said, Because of this, a man will be leaving his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will be jointed into one flesh.

Ephesians 5:31

31 Because of this, a man will be leaving his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.

4 But he answered and said to them, Have you not read, He who made them, made them male and female from the beginning. 5 And said, Because of this, a man will be leaving his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will be jointed into one flesh. 6 So-that they are no more two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together; let man not separate.

Genesis 2:24

24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and will cling to his wife and the two will be one flesh.
