Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:14-18.


Luke 16:18

_ _ putteth away his wife, etc. — (See on Matthew 19:3-9). Far from intending to weaken the force of the law, in these allusions to a new economy, our Lord, in this unexpected way, sends home its high requirements with a pungency which the Pharisees would not fail to feel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:1-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 16:18

But ye do; particularly in this notorious instance. Matthew 5:31; Matthew 19:7.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 16:18

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her (g) that is put away from [her] husband committeth adultery.

(g) They that gather by this passage that a man cannot be married again after he has divorced his wife for adultery, while she lives, reason incorrectly: for Christ speaks of those divorces which the Jews had which were not because of adultery, for adulterers were put to death by the law.
