    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:8

    Les dijo: Por la dureza de vuestro corazn Moiss os permiti repudiar a vuestras mujeres; pero desde el principio no fue así.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 19:8

    Verse 8.
    Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts] It is dangerous to tolerate the least evil, though prudence itself may require it: because toleration, in this case, raises itself insensibly into permission, and permission soon sets up for command. Moses perceived that if divorce were not permitted, in many cases, the women would be exposed to great hardships through the cruelty of their husbands: for so the word sklhrokardia, is understood in this place by some learned men.

    From the beginning it was not so] The Jews named the books of the law from the first word in each. Genesis they always term Bereshith, tyarb , which is the first word in it, and signifies, In the beginning. It is probable that our Lord speaks in this way here, In Bereshith it was not so, intimating that the account given in Genesis is widely different. There was no divorce between Eve and Adam; nor did he or his family practice polygamy. But our Lord, by the beginning, may mean the original intention or design.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-12 - The Pharisees were desirous of drawing something from Jesus which the might represent as contrary to the law of Moses. Cases about marriag have been numerous, and sometimes perplexed; made so, not by the law of God, but by the lusts and follies of men; and often people fix what they will do, before they ask for advice. Jesus replied by askin whether they had not read the account of the creation, and the firs example of marriage; thus pointing out that every departure therefro was wrong. That condition is best for us, and to be chosen and kept to accordingly, which is best for our souls, and tends most to prepare u for, and preserve us to, the kingdom of heaven. When the gospel i really embraced, it makes men kind relatives and faithful friends; i teaches them to bear the burdens, and to bear with the infirmities of those with whom they are connected, to consider their peace an happiness more than their own. As to ungodly persons, it is proper tha they should be restrained by laws, from breaking the peace of society And we learn that the married state should be entered upon with grea seriousness and earnest prayer.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Because of (prov). Rev., for: having regard to.

    It was not so (ou gegonen outwv). The A.V. is commonly understood to mean, it was not so in the beginning. But that is not Christ's meaning. The verb is in the perfect tense (denoting the continuance of past action or its results down to the present). He means: Notwithstanding Moses' permission, the case has not been so from the beginning until now. The original ordinance has never been abrogated nor superseded, but continues in force.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    19:8 {For your hardness of heart} (pros ten sklerokardian h-mwn). The word is apparently one of the few Biblical words (LXX and the N.T.). It is a heart dried up (skleros), hard and tough. {But from the beginning it hath not been so} (ap' arces de ouk gegonen houtws). The present perfect active of ginomai to emphasize the permanence of the divine ideal. "The original ordinance has never been abrogated nor superseded, but continues in force" (Vincent). "How small the Pharisaic disputants must have felt in presence of such holy teaching, which soars above the partisan view of controversialists into the serene region of ideal, universal, eternal truth" (Bruce).
