Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 19:4

_ _ And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female — or better, perhaps, “He that made them made them from the beginning a male and a female.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 19:3-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 19:4

He said, Have ye not read — So instead of contradicting him, our Lord confutes them by the very words of Moses. He who made them, made them male and female from the beginning — At least from the beginning of the Mosaic creation. And where do we read of any other? Does it not follow, that God's making Eve was part of his original design, and not a consequence of Adam's beginning to fall? By making them one man and one woman, he condemned polygamy: by making them one flesh, he condemned divorce.
