    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 16:18

    Putteth away (or divorceth) his wife - See on Matthew 5:31, Matthew 5:32 (note); Matthew 19:9, Matthew 19:10 (note); Mark 10:12 (note); where the question concerning divorce is considered at large. These verses, from the 13th to the 18th inclusive, appear to be part of our Lord's sermon on the mount; and stand in a much better connection there than they do here; unless we suppose our Lord delivered the same discourse at different times and places, which is very probable.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 16:18

    See the notes at Matthew 5:32. These verses occur in Matthew in a different order, and it is not improbable that they were spoken by our Saviour at different times. The design, here, seems to be to reprove the Pharisees for not observing the law of Moses, notwithstanding their great pretensions to external righteousness, and to show them that they had "really" departed from the law.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 16:18

    16:18 But ye do; particularly in this notorious instance. Mt 5:31; 19:7.
