Marriage

Scriptural Support for the Covenant of Marriage

Genesis 2:21-23 (Old Testament)

“And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help mate for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof: And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Matthew 19: 4 – 6 (New Testament)
“And He answered and said unto them, Have you not read that He which made them in the beginning made them male and female. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder.”

Hebrews 13:4 (Amplified Bible) (New Testament)

“Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous.”
