Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 7:11

_ _ But and if she depart — or “be separated.” If the sin of separation has been committed, that of a new marriage is not to be added (Matthew 5:32).

_ _ be reconciled — by appeasing her husband’s displeasure, and recovering his good will.

_ _ let not ... husband put away ... wife — In Matthew 5:32 the only exception allowed is, “saving for the cause of fornication.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 7:10-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 7:11

But if she depart — Contrary to this express prohibition. And let not the husband put away his wife — Except for the cause of adultery.
