All the words for this puzzle are in the article below. All words are of four letters, and share their first and last letters which are shown. There are several correct solutions to this puzzle. One solution is revealed as you click on the white squares.
The law of Moses permitted a man to issue his wife a deed of dismissal and send her from his tent. He could then take a new wife. At that time, men, in their lust and hardness of heart, tore apart what God had joined together and put his seal upon. They did not deal justly with their wives. They treated them like dirt.
Those who dare to do such things, who shut their ears to God’s word, are in dire danger of hell fire. The Bible says God hates divorce. When you take someone’s hand in marriage, you ought to remain ever true to that marriage —until that someone is dead. Marriage has but two exit doors. One is unlocked by God, the other by sin. Until a marriage ends by reason of death, the two should have eyes only for each other, live together in love, and never tire of it.
To be unfaithful is not a mere tort, but a breach of contract — a contract to which God is a party. A happy marriage depends on knowing that, as surely as the sun rises in the east, one’s partner never errs, but is committed to faithfulness every day for life.
