Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, With whom you have dealt treacherously; Yet she is your companion And your wife by covenant. But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth. “For the Lord God of Israel says That He hates divorce, For it covers one’s garment with violence,” Says the Lord of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, That you do not deal treacherously.”
-During the time of Malachi, foreign intermarriage & divorce were prevalent. God gave breath (ruach) which is also the spirit to Adam & from Adam’s rib; Eve came to being, having a remnant of the Spirit, making them one in marriage. God also seeks a godly offspring for an unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, the unbelieving wife sanctified by the husband; who effectively sanctify their children (1 Cor 7:14). God instructs that He hates divorce which is opposed to the peace of Christ, the head of the church in which we marry (unite in Him).
Lord our Father, have mercy on the marriages all over the world. Bless all those who are yet to be united in marriage & help those in marriage. Answer the prayers of all those who are childless, uphold those marriages at the verge of divorce, hear the prayers of all those who are divorced & all widows. May Your peace which surpasses all understanding fill every household; forever. Amen
