Does “Depart” (Choridzo) In 1 Corinthians 7:10,11 Mean “Divorce”?


First, notice in the context of 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 that (1) “depart” and “remain unmarried” are used to mean the same thing and (2) “depart” and “divorce” are used to mean the same thing. Second, the Greek word for “depart” (choridzo) is the same word found in Matthew 19:6; Mark 10:9 which refers to “divorce” (Matthew 19:7-9; Mark 10:11-12).
