Matthew 19:7; Mark 10:4; Matthew 5:31; Isaiah 50:1; Jeremiah 3:8

They said to him, xWhy then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?


They said, dMoses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce and to send her away.


Divorce

31 hIt was also said, nWhoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.


Israel's Sin and the Servant's Obedience

50  Thus says the Lord:

Where is gyour mother's certificate of divorce,

with which hI sent her away?

Or iwhich of my creditors is it

to whom I have sold you?

jBehold, for your iniquities you were sold,

and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.


She saw that for all the adulteries of that faithless one, Israel, sI had sent her away with ta decree of divorce. uYet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear, but she too went iand played the whore.
