Dear fellow Greek students, I am a bit perplexed about an issue I came across recently. In Matthew 19:9, MH is used rather than EAV MH. Many English translations use "except" in this verse. This is not a proper translation of MH. Is this something that can be justified? I also find it interesting that in Mark's parallel account of this passage, the "except clause" is left out entirely (Mk. 10:11-12). Jesus also mentions that his intent is to restore the principals from Creation. The "except clause" wasn't in God's original plan. In addition, Romans 7:2-3, a passage that obviously permits remarriage on the grounds of a spouse's death, is very clear. What is the significance of the unclear language in Matthew19:9?
