Marriage and Divorce

(Matt 19:1-9)

10:1 And He arose went from there to the region of Yehudah, and  beyond the Yarden and the people gathered around to Him again; and according to His custom, He taught them again.

10:2 And the Prushim came to Him, and asked Him:

Is it mutar (permissible) for a man to put away [his] wife? tempting Him.

10:3 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) answered and said to them:

What did Mosheh command you?

10:4 And they said:

Mosheh suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put [her] away.

10:5 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) answered and said to them:

For the hardness of your heart He wrote you this precept.

10:6 But from the beginning of the creation Elohim made them male and female.

10:7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

10:9 What therefore Elohim hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

10:10 And in the house His Talmidim asked Him again of the same [matter].

10:11 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Yehoshua  (יהושע) Blesses little children

(Matt 19:13-15; Luke 18:15-17)

10:13 And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them: and [his] Talmidim rebuked those that brought [them].

10:14 But when Yehoshua  (יהושע) saw [it], He was much displeased, and said to them,

Suffer the little children to come to Me,

and forbid them not: for of such is the Malkut Elohim.

10:15 Truly I say to you:

Whosoever shall not receive the Malkut Elohim as a little child, He shall not enter therein.

10:16 And He took them up in his arms, put [his] hands upon them, and blessed them.

10:17 And when He was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good Teacher (didaskalos), what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

10:18 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to Him:

Why callest you Me good?

[there is] none good but one, [that is], Elohim.

10:19 You knowest the Mitzvot, (Aseret Hadiberot- Dekalogos)

Do not commit adultery,

Do not kill,

Do not steal,

Do not bear false witness,

Defraud not,

Honour your father and mother.

10:20 And he answered and said to Him,

Teacher (didaskalos), all these have I have shomer mitzvot from my youth.

10:21 Then Yehoshua  (יהושע) beholding him loved him, and said to him, One thing you lackest: go your way, sell whatsoever you hast, and give to the poor, and you shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the stauros (stake), and follow Me.

10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

With Hashem all things are possible

(Matt 19:23-30; Luke 18:24-30)

10:23 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) looked round about, and said to His Talmidim, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Malkut Elohim!

10:24 And the Talmidim were astonished at His words.

But Yehoshua  (יהושע) answereth again, and said to them:

Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Malkut Elohim!

10:25 It is easier for a gamla (large rope, camel, bestow) to go through the eye of a needle, than for a oisher (rich man) to enter into the Malkut Elohim.

10:26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

10:27 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) looking upon them saith:

With men [it is] impossible, but not with Elohim: for with Elohim all things are possible.

10:28 Then Kefa began to say to Him, Behold, we have left all, and have followed you.


And Yehoshua  (יהושע) answered and said:

Truly I say to you:

There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the Good News,

10:30 But He shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, batim, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

10:31 But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last first.

10:32 And they were in the way going up to Yerushalayim; and Yehoshua  (יהושע) went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And He took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen to Him,

10:33 [Saying], Behold, we go up to Yerushalayim; and Son of man shall be delivered to the Rashei Hakohanim , and to the Sofrim; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Goyim:

10:34 And they shall mock Him, and shall scourge Him, and shall spit upon Him, and shall kill him: and the third day He shall rise again.

10:35 And Yaakov and Yochanan Ben Zavadai, come to Him, saying:

Teacher (didaskalos), we would that you shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

10:36 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

What would you that I should do for you?

10:37 They said to Him:

Grant to us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the other on your left hand, in your glory.


But Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

you know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with?

10:39 And they said to Him:

We can.

And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the immersion that I am immersed withal shall you be immersed:

10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but [it shall be given to them] for whom it is prepared.

10:41 And when the ten heard [it], they began to be much displeased with Yaakov and Yochanan.

10:42 But Yehoshua  (יהושע) called them [to him], and said to them:

you know that they which are accounted to rule over the Goyim exercise masters over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

10:45 For even Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

10:46 And they came to Yericho: and as He went out of Yericho with His Talmidim and a great number of people, blind Bar-Timai [Ben Timai], sat by the highway side begging.

10:47 And when He heard that it was Yehoshua  (יהושע) ha Natzaret, He began to cry out, and say:

Yehoshua  (יהושע), [you] Ben David, have mercy on me.

10:48 And many reproving Him that He should to be silent: but He cried the more a great deal, [You] Ben David, have mercy on me.

10:49 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) stood still, and commanded Him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying to Him, Take courage, arise; He calleth you.

10:50 And He, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Yehoshua  (יהושע).

10:51 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) answered and said to him:

What wilt you that I should do to you?

The blind man said to Him:

Rabboni, that I might receive my sight.

10:52 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to him:

Go your way; your faith hath made you whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Yehoshua  (יהושע) in the way.
