Give or Recieve?

“Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 7:3-6).

I’m more struck by the first sentence.
‘thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.’

Marriage is a lifelong event. There is no turning back. God’s word instructions are very clear. Do not give your daughters away, or give your sons to others who are not in the same faith. These day’s same faith is so diluted. I’d like to emphasize, seriously in the same faith.

God guide us always.
