“But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
1Co 7:11 But and if she shall depart, etc. Provided, despite the prohibition, there is such disagreement that she leaves her husband, she must remain unmarried, or be reconciled. Let not the husband put away [his] wife. The wife "departs", because she leaves the home; the husband "puts away his wife", by sending her off. Both are equally prohibited. The same rules apply to each sex. Among the Jews, only the husband exercised the right of divorce; among the Greeks and Romans, the wife exercised it equally with the husband.
