Ephesians 5:31 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Shall be joined (προσκολληθήσεται)

Only here; and Mark 10:7. See on Luke 15:15. The compound verb denotes most intimate union.

Shall be one flesh (ἔσονται εἰς σάρκα μίαν)

The A.V. overlooks the force of εἰς unto. Lit., shall be unto one flesh. Rev., shall become.
