Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 19:5
- Shall cleave (kollhthsetai).
- First future passive, "shall be glued to," the verb means.
- The twain shall become one flesh (esontai oi duo eiv sarka mian).
- This use of eiv after eimi is an imitation of the Hebrew, though a few examples occur in the older Greek and in the papyri. The frequency of it is due to the Hebrew and here the LXX is a direct translation of the Hebrew idiom.
