Deuteronomy 24:4

Context
NETBible

her first husband who divorced her is not permitted to remarry 1  her after she has become ritually impure, for that is offensive to the Lord. 2  You must not bring guilt on the land 3  which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance.

XREF

Le 18:24-28; Jos 22:17,18; Jer 3:1

NET © Notes

tn Heb “to return to take her to be his wife.”

sn The issue here is not divorce and its grounds per se but prohibition of remarriage to a mate whom one has previously divorced.

tn Heb “cause the land to sin” (so KJV, ASV).
