10:1-12 Wherever Jesus was, the people flocked after him in crowds, and he taught them. Preaching was Christ's constant practice. He here shows that the reason why Moses' law allowed divorce, was such that they ought not to use the permission; it was only for the hardness of their hearts. God himself joined man and wife together; he has fitted them to be comforts and helps for each other. The bond which God has tied, is not to be lightly untied. Let those who are for putting away their wives consider what would become of themselves, if God should deal with them in like manner.See this question about divorce explained in the notes at Matthew 19:1-12.CHAPTER 10

But from the beginning of the creation,.... Of the world, or of man: , "from the beginning of the creation of the world", is a way of speaking often used by the Jews (r): the phrase "of the creation" is left out in the Syriac and Persic versions; and so it was in Beza's most ancient copy, and it is only read, "from the beginning", as in Mat_19:4,8; see Gill on Matthew 19:4, See Gill on Matthew 19:8.

God made them male and female; the first that were created, Adam and Eve, the first parents of mankind, the first couple that came together were one male and one female; so that there could be no polygamy or divorce: Adam could not have more wives than one: nor could he put away Eve, and marry another; no provision was made for any such usages and practices; See Gill on Matthew 19:4. In the Complutensian edition, it is added, "and said", the following words.

(r) Bereshit Rabba, sect. 3. fol. 2. 3. & sect. 4. fol. 4. 1.

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

Mark 10:6. Ἀρχῇς κτίσεως, from the beginning of creation) Therefore there was not any creation anterior to the creation described in the beginning of Genesis.
