Leave And Cleave. What On Earth Does That Mean?

Leave And Cleave. What On Earth Does That Mean?

When I first heard the word cleave, my initial thought was “What a strange word?”, What kind of language is this? It sounds so preachy!

But over the years I have come to understand it simply means this:

– as wife, I am now the most important person in my husbands life, after God, no longer his mother, father or family (he must leave them emotionally and cling to me tightly and I to him)
– I am one with him, closer than any one else must ever be (he must be faithful to me and I to him)

What a beautiful word : CLEAVE

Genesis 2:24 KJV
[24] Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Genesis 2:24 NIV
[24] That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
