And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
6 But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female.
7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
8 and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.«
28 So husbands ought also to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,
30 because we are members of his body.
31 »For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.«
32 This is a profound mystery; but I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
33 However, each one of you must also love his wife as himself, and the wife must see that she respects her husband.
Therefore, laying aside falsehood, each one of you must speak truth with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
And he answered them, »Have you not read that he who made them at the beginning made them male and female,
and said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.«
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
Or do you not know that he who joins himself to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, »The two shall become one flesh.«
But he who unites himself with the Lord is one spirit with him.
