Matthew 19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and they twain shall be one flesh? 

Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together let not man put asunder.

Matthew 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

Matthew 19:8 He said unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts.(humanity back then and also today didn't see much value in a relationship beyond sex).suffered you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so..
After being created (*), humanity quickly headed onto the road of self and has been on that road of destruction ever since.
Matthew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication.(unfaithfulness to the relationship).and shall marry another, commits adultery and whoso marries her which is put away also commits adultery.

Matthew 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

Matthew 19:11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

Matthew 19:12 For there are some eunuchs which were so born from their mother's womb.(had a special purpose to come here regarding the work of God and not much interested in other things). And there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men. And there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake.(not interested in sex). He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Matthew 19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them and pray. And the disciples rebuked them.

Matthew 19:14 But Emmanuel said, Suffer.(allow).little children and forbid them not to come unto me. For of such is the kingdom of heaven.
The disciples (students) of Emmanuel still had lots to learn from Him.
Matthew 19:15 And he laid his hands on them and departed thence.

Matthew 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why do you call me good? There is none good but one.(?), that is, God. But if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.
The Old Testament.Mosaic Law was still in effect at this time, because Emmanuel hadn't yet been crucified and resurrected.
Matthew 19:18 He said unto him, Which? Emmanuel said, You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness.(Proverbs 12:17),

Matthew 19:19 Honour your father and your mother and, You shall love your neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 19:20 The young man said unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up. What lack I yet?

Matthew 19:21 Emmanuel said unto him, If you will be perfect, go and sell that you have and give to the poor and you shall have treasure in heaven and come and follow me.
Comprehend this scripture in the light of.Mark 8:34.

Luke 12:33,34; 14:33. Emmanuel was showing this young man to step ahead in life by living in faith that God always provides.

Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.


Matthew 19:23 Then said Emmanuel unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Comprised with.Eclectic Notes: a proverbial phrase, probably in common use at the time, expressing the obstacle possession of riches has when trusted in, instead of God. 'Eye of the needle' was an expression referring to the equipment & paraphernalia camels often carried, where often it all would have to be removed in order for the camel to bend down to crawl through areas where a hole in the rock allowed passage through the mountains. The meaning in the verse being that of unloading oneself of the involvement possessions and constant accumulation of them can bring, burdening one down as the camel and making passage impossible for it to continue on the path without shedding some of its burden. Rich persons wealth is often too important to their ego to allow their attention to be on spiritual/eternal matters.
Matthew 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

Matthew 19:26 But Emmanuel beheld them and said unto them, With men this is impossible but with God all things are possible.
Well then, how is it possible?
Matthew 19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all and followed you. What shall we have therefore?

Matthew 19:28 And Emmanuel said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Matthew 19:29 And every one that has forsaken houses or brethren or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold and shall inherit everlasting life.

Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last and the last shall be first.
This verse should really be connected with the beginning of the next chapter.
