Are Multiple Wives Righteous?

The Adono Yache, gave commandments in the Gospel concerning divorce, not multiple wives. He explained the proper grounds for divorce according the the original law [Gen 2:23] in order to abolish the precept that Moses gave for divorce, due to the hardness of the hearts of the Israelites, which was contrary to the original law of marriage. The topic was not about whether multiple wives were lawful or righteous because multiple wives were always lawful & righteous by evidence of Abraham, the perfect man,[James 2:22] who was righteous in all his deeds, and well pleasing in righteousness all the days of his life.[Jubilee 23:10] One of his deeds was taking Hagar as a second wife from his righteous wife Sarah.[Gen 16:3] These deeds were lawful and righteous by evidence of him being deemed perfect.
Jubilees 23:10
[10]For Abraham was perfect in all his deeds with AHAYAH, and well-pleasing in righteousness all the days of his life; and behold, he did not complete four jubilees in his life, when he had grown old by reason of the wickedness, and was full of his days.

  • Let's understand the original law:

Genesis 2:23-24
[23]And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because

she was taken out of Man.
[24]Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

  • When a man takes a wife, she becomes his bones and flesh, which is his body because they are inseparable. This is why Yache said "what therefore Alahayim hath joined together, let no man(human) put asunder"[Matt 19:6] this is the original law. The man's wife is now his own body by Alahayim joining them together, male and female.

  1. A man's wife is referred to as "his nakedness" because if one sees her flesh, it is no different than looking at the man's flesh since she is one flesh with her husband. That's why it is deemed as the husband's nakedness since it's his wife who is united to his body.

  2. A man's wife is also referred to as "his skirt" because a woman is the bones and flesh of her husband, so if one sees her flesh, then it is no different than lifting up the skirt of that man to see his flesh. Each wife a man takes becomes his flesh.

The law states, "a man shall leave his father and his mother" to cleave to his wife. The law does not state "a man shall leave his wife" to cleave to another wife because his wife is his flesh, so he cannot depart from her or else that would be divorce. So when he  takes another wife he also keeps the wife he had before. There is no transgression for taking another wife if one is still united as one flesh with one's first wife. The laws concerning fornication also attests to this fact in Leviticus 18:7-8. A man cannot see or approach the nakedness of his Father, that is abomination.[Lev18:22] His father's nakedness also means he cannot see or come near his own mother, {Lev 18:7} nor can he come near his father's wife, {Lev 18:8} which is his father's other wife that is not his mother, because both the man's mother and his father's wife are the bone and flesh of his father and they are considered his Father's nakedness.

Leviticus 18:6-8
[6]None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am AHAYAH.
[7]The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou
shalt not uncover her nakedness.
(A man can't come near his father or mother)
[8]The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. (Nor can a man come near any of his father's wives.)

A man's sisters are also the possession of his Father until his Father give them away in marriage, hence one
cannot approach them even if they are one of his Father's wife's daughters. They are still his father's possession because the other wives are his bone and flesh too..[Lev 18:9-11]

 

  • The laws of fornication and adultery in Exodus 20,22; Leviticus 18,20;Deuteronomy 22,27, nowhere states, infers, or eludes that it is fornication/adultery for a man that has one wife, to approach his other wife. The law states in Matt 19:6, that if a man puts away his wife and marries another it is adultery, which is true because the original law said "leave father and mother" not his wife, but it does not state that a man who has a wife he is with, and marries another unmarried marriageable woman has committed adultery. The laws shows a man is not committing adultery with his own wife, or else our fathers Jacob and Abraham would have been adulterers. Yache is not the minister of unrighteousness{Gal 2:17-18}, neither is Ahayah the author of confusion{1 Cor 14:33} and Ahayah gave our fathers his covenant because they were perfect.

Jasher 22:54
[54]And Ahayah said to Satan, Hast thou thus considered my servant Abraham?
for there is none like
him upon earth, a perfect and an upright man before me, one that feareth Alahayim and avoideth evil;
as I live,
were I to say unto him, Bring up Isaac thy son before me, he would not withhold him from me, much more if
I told him to bring up a burnt offering before me from his flock or herds.
(Abraham had multiple wives when this was said. He had already taken Hagar as a second wife.)
Genesis 26:4-5
[4]And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries;
and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
[5]Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my
laws.
(Ahayah said he kept his laws, which shows multiple wives are lawful.)
Jasher 26:17
[17]And the boys grew up to their fifteenth year, and they came amongst the society of men. Esau was a

designing and deceitful man, and an expert hunter in the field, and Jacob was a man perfect and wise, dwelling in tents, feeding flocks and learning the instructions of Ahayah and the commands of his father and mother. (Jacob's father and mother came from households of multiple wives.)
Jubilees 35:12
[12]And he is bitter against thee because thou didst
bless Jacob thy perfect and upright son; for there is no
evil but only goodness in him, and since he came from Haran unto this day he has not robbed us of aught,
for he brings us everything in its season always, and rejoices with all his heart when we take at his hands
and he blesses us, and has not parted from us since he came from Haran until this day, and he remains with us
continually at home honouring us.'
(Jacob had 4 wives when he was deemed perfect and upright by his mother, Rebecca.)

  • Now, Yache explained that only fornication is the grounds for divorce, [Matt 19:3-9] aside from not providing the 3 requirements of marriage [Exo 21:10-11], so we we look at how he corrected Moses' precepts.

Matthew 19:6-9

[6]Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore Alahayim hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Hence a man cannot be separated from his wife or wives, just as Jacob is not separated from any of his 4 wives. He did not leave Leah for Rachel, but he did leave his father and his mother to be with his wives as the original law stated he must do. Even Yache left his father and mother to be with the Church {Eph 5:31-32})

[7]They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

[8]He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but
from the beginning it was not so.
(Hence Jacob broke no law because he didn't put away any of his wives.)
[9]And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry
another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
(Abraham
didn't commit adultery because he divorced Hagar, but he did not marry another wife while she lived
because it would have been adultery. He only stayed with Sarah his first wife. He waited until Hagar and
Sarah died before taking another wife named Keturah.)

  • Now understanding multiple wives, divorce, and the righteousness of repentance, can be gotten from

understanding Yache.

A man's wife is "his skirt" because a woman is the bones and flesh of her husband, so if one sees her
flesh, it is fornication and adultery, because it is no different than lifting up the skirt of that man to see
his flesh. The law shows it:

Deut 27:20

Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife; because he uncovereth his father's skirt. And all the people shall say, Amen. (Any of a man's wives is his skirt.)

Deut 27:23 

Cursed be he that lieth with his mother in law. And all the people shall say Amen. (One's mother in law is any of the wives of one's father in law.)

  • The understanding of this was shown in Ruth, who asked Boaz to spread his skirt over her, which meant to take her as his wife, to confirm a woman being under a man's skirt means she is his wife.

Ruth 3:9 

And he said, Who art thou? and she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.

  • This is also exemplified in Yache, who has two wives in scripture, Israel and Jerusalem (Judah). When he spoke toward his second wife, Jerusalem, he spoke about taking her as his wife, saying He spread his skirt over her. 

Ezekiel 16:8
[8]Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love;
and I spread
my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant
with thee, saith the Adonoye Ahayah, and thou becamest mine
. (He took possession of her as
his wife [Sir 36:24] with the ransom/dowry of the Egyptians [Isa43:3], and they became one flesh by
covenant(marriage), hence she was under his skirt to cover her nakedness.)

​​

The original laws of Matt 19:3-9 are righteous because even Yache kept this law when explaining his relationship with Israel and Judah figuratively as his wives:

  1. Israel, the first wife, (Joseph is firstborn {I Chron 5:1-2}) did commit adultery and was put away by [Jer 3:14] divorce,[Jer 3:6-8,20] but Yache still remembered her as a wife in hopes she would repent. [Jer 3:14]
     

  2. Jerusalem, the second wife, did fornicate also, and went astray to her lovers [Eze 16] but she was

not given a bill of divorce by Yache. [Isaiah 50:1] She was sent away, because she left her husband
to commit adultery [Mark 10:12], but she was not given a bill of divorce by her husband, and still
considered his wife though he dwelt apart from her in hopes that she would repent.{Hermas Mandate 4 }

  • Yache was gracious and still kept Israel and Jerusalem in mind as his wives, [Jer 3:14] even begging them to return unto him. [Jer 3:4,7,12-14] As their husband, he did not marry any another wife,[Matt 19:9] but remained alone until his wives repented. [Hermas Mandate 4 {1:4-10}]. Let's look at the testimonies.

                                           

                                            Israel, the first wife

Jeremiah 3:1,6-8
[1]They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return
unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet
return again to me, saith AHAYAH.
[6]AHAYAH said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel
hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the
harlot.
(The first wife sinned against her husband by fornication)
[7]And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her
treacherous sister Judah saw it.
(He called her to repentance, but she did not hearken, and his second wife, Judah saw it.)
[8]And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and
given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister
Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
(The first wife, Israel, was divorced for adultery, and the second wife,Judah, went and committed fornication
also.)

Jeremiah 3:9-14,18-20
[9]And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed
adultery with stones and with stocks.
(This is in reference to Israel's fornications and adultery.)
[10]And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but
feignedly, saith AHAYAH.
(After seeing the first wife divorced, the second wife, Judah, did not cleave to her
husband with her whole heart.)

[11]And AHAYAH said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.
(Though both wives have sinned, the first wife is more justified because she had no prior example of what repercussions her deeds would cause, unlike the second wife who both saw the bad deeds, the repercussions for sinning, and still chose to go do the same thing.)
[12]Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith AHAYAH;
and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith AHAYAH, and I will not keep anger
for ever.
(The first wife being called to repentance because her husband has the fruits of the Spirit.)
[13]Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against AHAYAH thy Alahayim, and hast
scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green
tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith AHAYAH.
(As one can see repentance from dead works and confessing of one's sins is of old time.)
[14]Turn, O backsliding children, saith AHAYAH; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city,
and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
(Now he is calling to both his wives to repent and return to
him, their husband, because he is still married unto both of them. The first wife, though divorced and cast
away, is still his wife because she is given a space of repentance to return. Also the second wife, though
she left on her own accord and was sent away, she is still his wife because he never gave her a bill of divorce
and she is given a space of repentance while her husband dwells alone and does not take another wife, so that she may have opportunity to return.)

[18]In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out
of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.
(This is speaking
of when both the wives repent and return unto their husband.)

[19]But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of
the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.
(Both
his wives shall turn in obedience unto him, even referencing him as their father. This is, in part, why Yache shall be called the Everlasting Father [Isaiah 9:6])

[20]Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O

house of Israel, saith AHAYAH. (Now he is speaking to his first wife.)
Jeremiah 3:22
[22]Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art
AHAYAH our Alahayim.
(After all her transgressions, he still calls her to repent and return, and in the end she
will come back to her husband. This is a testimony of the long suffering of a husband toward his wife, the
weaker vessel{I Pet 3:7})

Jeremiah 4:1-2
[1]If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith AHAYAH, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations
out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove. 
(The wife must stop and put away her transgressions to return
to her husband because one has to bring forth fruit worthy of repentance.)

[2]And thou shalt swear, AHAYAH liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall
bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
(The repentant first wife, shall walk uprightly when she
returns to her husband)

                                      Jerusalem, the second wife

Ezekiel 16:3-9
[3]And say, Thus saith the Adonoye Ahayah unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.
(This shows Jerusalem was born in iniquity
from her idolatrous ways, which originated from the Canaanites)

[4]And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed
in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
(This is describing Jerusalem's
childhood, since foolishness is bound in the heart of a child {pro 22:15} and a babe is unskillful in the
word of righteousness. {Heb 5:13} So Jerusalem was not yet washed by the word {Eph 5:26})

[5]None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out
in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.
(The Egyptians loathed the
people.)

[6]And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in
thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.
(The blood of pollution {Lev 15:19-24}
is the tokens of her virginity, which shows she is now of marriageable age, because she has her period now and can bare children.)

[7]I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and
thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast
naked and bare.
(She has grown during adolescence as we see here. Now that she has the tokens of virginity
to confirm she is of marriageable age (virgin) which means she can bare children, she may be married
now.)

[8]Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread
my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with
thee, saith the Adonoye AHAYAH, and thou becamest mine.
(She became a wife unto him. He became her
covering in putting his skirt over her to show she is now his bone and flesh. They made a marriage
covenant {Duet 4:1327:9-10} when he humbled her in the wilderness. {Duet 8:2-3} Now she is his wife and
she shall not be put away {Duet 22:29})

[9]Then washed I thee with water; yea, I thoroughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed
thee with oil.
(He washed her with the word, the commandments, and baptized her in the red sea {I Cor
10:1-3} and a second time in the river Jordan for the next generation. {Joshua ch. 3})

Ezekiel 16:15
[15]But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and
pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.
(she committed fornication by laying
with strangers because she is the flesh of her husband and she exposed herself to other men.)

Ezekiel 16:20-23,30,32,38,59-60,62-63
[20]Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these
hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
(She had children
by him, yet took them unto other men to be devoured since she left the righteousness of being with her

husband according to the original law.)
[21]That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
[22]And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when
thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.
[23]And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Adonoye AHAYAH;)
[30]
How weak is thine heart, saith the Adonoye AHAYAH, seeing thou doest all these things, the work
of an imperious whorish woman;

[32]But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
[38]And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. (Adultery is bloodshed.)
[59]For thus saith the Adonoye AHAYAH; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised
the oath in breaking the covenant.
[60]Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto
thee an everlasting covenant.
(He didn't leave off his mercy toward her and take another wife, even though
she fornicated and polluted his children, which gave him every right to divorce her, but as a testimony of
long-suffering and righteousness, he gave her the opportunity to repent by remembering his covenant. He did abide alone as the law in Hermas Mandate 4 required, so that she may repent and return to him.)

[62]And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am AHAYAH:
[63]That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy
shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Adonoye AHAYAH.
(By
dealing in the righteousness of the powers of the fruits of the Spirit, his wife will be ashamed of her doings
when she acknowledges that he did not entreat her evil for all the evil she did unto him.)

  • When one reads Leviticus chapter 18 & 20/Deuteronomy 27 & 22, one can learn the laws
    pertaining to the lawful definition of fornication and adultery. None of these laws condemn a man
    approaching his own wife because that is not fornication or adultery.

  1. Adultery according to the law is the breaking of wedlock, which means a man has slept with
    the wife of any other man.[Let 20:11] It is also adultery if a married woman/betrothed virgin
    sleeps with any man besides her husband. [Duet 22:22-23] No woman can have multiple husbands,
    that is adultery because she is a married woman sleeping with another man.
    [Rom 7:3; Eze 16:32]

Leviticus 20:10

[10]And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery
with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
Deuteronomy 22:22-24
[22]If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the
man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
[23]If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with
her;
[24]Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that
they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his
neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
Eze 16:32
[32]But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
Romans 7:3
[3]So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if
her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another
man.

  • Fornication stems from lust. Fornication according to the law is as follows:

  1. The seeing or touching of the flesh of another man's wife.[Lev 20:10]

  2. A married woman/betrothed virgin laying with any male that is not her husband [Duet 22:22-23; Eze 16:32]

  3. The approaching to any that is near kin, to see or touch their nakedness [Lev 18:6]

  4. Seeing or touching the nakedness of one's father or mother (in-laws included) [Lev 18:7]

  5. Seeing or touching the nakedness of your father's wife, even though she isn't your mother, she is your
    father's nakedness [Lev 18:8] (This law is for household's with multiple wives and substantiates
    the fact that each wife is one flesh with her husband, because the law even stipulates that it is one's father's nakedness even though it is not one's mother.)

  6. Seeing or approaching the nakedness of one's sister, whether by one's father's other wife, or his
    wife that is one's mother. Regardless if one's sister be born by your father from one of his wives that
    were abroad or if it be a sister from your mother or father's other wife that lives at home with
    everyone else. This is a wicked thing if they see each other's nakedness. [Lev 18:9,11;20:17]

  7. One cannot uncover the nakedness of your children's daughters because they are your own flesh. [Lev 18:10]

  8. One cannot uncover the nakedness of one's daughter in-law because it is confusion. It's your son's wife [Lev 18:15; 20:12]

  9. One cannot uncover the nakedness of one's father's or mother's sister. She is one's parent's near kin. One will bear one's iniquity.[Lev18:12-13; 20:19]

  10. One cannot uncover the nakedness of one's uncle's wife, she is your aunt. The man and the woman shall die childless for this deed. [Lev 18:16; 20:20]

  11. One shall not uncover the nakedness of one's brother, it is an unclean thing, they shall die childless who commit such acts. [Lev 18:16; 20:21]

  12. One shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, nor her son's daughter, nor her daughter's daughter, it is wickedness, because they are her near kinswomen. It is very wicked. [Lev 18:17;20:14]

  13. One cannot marry the sister of one's wife while one's wife is still alive [Lev 18:18]

  14.  One cannot lay with any animal, it is abomination [Lev 18:23]


These are the laws concerning unlawful lusts:

  1. Don't approach to uncover the nakedness of woman while she is on her menstrual cycle [Lev 18:19; 20:18]

  2. Don't lie carnally with another man's wife to defile one's self with her. [Lev 18:20; Exodus 20:14]

  3. Don't lay with mankind as womankind, it is abomination [Lev 18:22; 20:13]

  4.  No person shall lay with any animals, it is confusion and abomination. [Lev 18:23; 20:15-16

 

  • Concerning the laws of fornication/unlawful marriages, in the days of Abraham and Jacob, the whole law was not revealed unto them. Hence Abraham married his brother's daughter, Sarah. Jacob married two sets of sisters for his 4 wives. Rachel and Leah were twins [Jasher 28:28] while Zilpah and Bilhah were sisters from the family of Abraham, Chaldeans, and near kin to Deborah, Rebecca's nurse. [Testament of Naphtali 1:9-12] Simeon married Dinah his sister. {Jasher 45:2} The full understanding of these laws weren't revealed until Moses received them on Mount Sinai.[Jubilee 33:16] So let no person think any iniquity was in our fathers hands or that we are permitted to do such things this day. [Jubilee 33:15]


Jasher 36:13-14
[13]And it was after the death of Rachel, that Jacob pitched his tent in the tent of her handmaid Bilhah.
[14]And Reuben was jealous for his mother Leah on account of this, and he was filled with anger, and he
rose up in his anger and went and entered the tent of Bilhah and he thence removed his father's bed.
Jubilees 33:1-9
[1]And Jacob went and dwelt to the south of Magdaladra'ef. And he went to his father Isaac, he and Leah his wife, on the new moon of the tenth month.
(He loved Leah too, even though He loved Rachel more,
Rachel had died less than 2 months ago during this time.)

[2]And Reuben saw Bilhah, Rachel's maid, the concubine of his father, bathing in water in a secret place, and he loved her.(A concubine is a wife, she was his wife also, just not of the same status as Rachel and Leah. She loved Jacob too and he loved her.)
[3]And he hid himself at night, and he entered the house of Bilhah [at night], and he found her sleeping alone on a bed in her house.
[4]And he lay with her, and she awoke and saw, and behold Reuben was lying with her in the bed, and she
uncovered the border of her covering and seized him, and cried out, and discovered that it was Reuben.
[5]And she was ashamed because of him, and released her hand from him, and he fled.
[6]And she lamented because of this thing exceedingly, and did not tell it to any one.
[7]And when Jacob returned and sought her, she said unto him: 'I am not clean for thee, for I have been defiled as regards thee; for Reuben has defiled me, and 
has lain with me in the night, and I was asleep, and did not discover until he uncovered my skirt and slept with me.' (We see the love Jacob had for all his wives, because he took Leah with him, and as soon as he got back he was looking for Bilhah his other wife whom he loved. We even see her sincerity toward her husband in the fact that she waited to tell her husband directly what happened in sincerity and not wanting him to be without knowledge of the matter. She felt ashamed, yet she was not willing to see her husband defiled by laying with her unknowing of what transpired.)
[8]And Jacob was exceedingly wroth with Reuben because he had lain with Bilhah, because he had
uncovered his father's skirt
. (This shows all Jacobs wives were under his covering, even his 3rd wife bilhah
was still his flesh and he cared about her by evidence of his reaction to what happened.)

[9]And Jacob did not approach her again because Reuben had defiled her. And as for any man who
uncovers his father's skirt his deed is wicked exceedingly, for he is abominable before Ahayah.

Jubilees 33:10-20
[10]For this reason
it is written and ordained on the heavenly tablets that a man should not lie with his
father's wife, and should not uncover his father's skirt
, for this is unclean: they shall surely die together, the
man who lies with his father's wife and the woman also, for they have wrought uncleanness on the earth.
[11]And there shall be nothing unclean before our Alahayim in the nation which He has chosen for Himself as a

possession.
[12]And again, it is written a second time: 'Cursed be he who lieth with the wife of his father, for he hath
uncovered his father's shame'; and all the holy ones of Ahayah said 'So be it; so be it.'
(The law was established among the Holy ones, so All the Patriarchs before were unaware of this part of the law until this time.)
[13]And do thou, Moses, command the children of Israel that they observe this word; for it (entails) a
punishment of death; and it is unclean, and there is no atonement for ever to atone for the man who has
committed this, but he is to be put to death and slain, and stoned with stones, and rooted out from the midst
of the people of our Alahayim.
[14]For to no man who does so in Israel is it permitted to remain alive a single day on the earth, for he is
abominable and unclean.
[15]And let them not say: to Reuben was granted life and forgiveness after he had lain with his father's
concubine, and to her also though she had a husband, and her husband Jacob, his father, was still alive.
[16]
For until that time there had not been revealed the
ordinance and judgment and law in its completeness for all, but in thy days (it has been revealed) as a law
of seasons and of days, and an everlasting law for the everlasting generations.

[17]And for this law there is no consummation of days, and no atonement for it, but they must both be rooted out in the midst of the nation: on the day whereon they committed it they shall slay them.
[18]And do thou, Moses, write (it) down for Israel that they may observe it, and do according to these words,

and not commit a sin unto death; for Ahayah our Alahayim is judge, who respects not persons and accepts not
gifts.
[19]And tell them these words of the covenant, that they may hear and observe, and be on their guard with
respect to them, and not be destroyed and rooted out of the land; for an uncleanness, and an abomination,
and a contamination, and a pollution are all they who commit it on the earth before our Alahayim.

Jubilees 33:20
[20]And
there is no greater sin than the fornication which they commit on earth; for Israel is a holy nation
unto Ahayah its Alahayim, and a nation of inheritance, and a priestly and royal nation and for (His own)
possession; and there shall no such uncleanness appear in the midst of the holy nation.


Now let's look at Yache's correction of the law of divorce:
Matthew 19:3-9
[3]The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? (The Topic is divorce, not how many wives can a man have or whether multiple wives are lawful. This was not something to question among Hebrews because our nation was built from multiple wives, and we reverence our fore parents by not looking down on multiple wives, because that would be a reproach to the very father's and mother's that we originate from.)
[4]And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made
them male and female,
[5]And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (The law says a man leaves his father and mother to cleave to his wife which is righteous. The law does not say a man shall leave his wife to marry his new wife, because the first wife is his flesh already, so he cannot separate from her because he has gotten another wife as well. He is married to both of them and they are both his flesh. Hence divorce is unrighteous from the beginning, save for the cause of fornication, because the wife who lays with stranger has actually left her husband for another man according to Sirach 23:22-23, which is breaking the original law. And the husband who divorced his wife for any other cause besides fornication and marries another woman, has broken the original law because he departed from his own flesh, his wife, who did not depart from him and unite herself to another man, so he was never truly separated from her since she didn't fornicate against him, but he dealt treacherously and divorced her.)[Matt 19:9]
Ecclesiasticus 23:22-23
[22]Thus shall it go also with the wife that leaveth her husband, and bringeth in an heir by another.
[23]For first, she hath disobeyed the law of the most High; and secondly,
she hath trespassed against her
own husband;
and thirdly, she hath played the whore in adultery, and brought children by another man.


            Were there Multiple wives in the New Testament?

                                              Yes absolutely

The new testament still had the practice of multiple wives. This is why Bishops and deacons had to be selected from men who didn't have more than one wife because there were people in the church who did have multiple wives. The particular example of a person with multiple wives is found in the Church of Corinth where a father had more than one wife and his son took one of his wives for himself to wife. We know from the law that approaching your father's wife is pertaining to the wife that is not your mother, which shows that the father in Corinth had multiple wives. The man fornicated because he took his Father's flesh(wife). If a man lays with another man's wife, it is fornication from the beginning of time.

1 Corinthians 5:1

1  It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. (The woman was not his mother, she was his father's other wife. Just like Reuben had laid with his father's wife. The law in Lev 18:7-8 shows one's mother is different from one's father's wife.)

Jubilees 33:10,12
[10]For this reason it is written and ordained on the heavenly tablets that
a man should not lie with his
father's wife, and should not uncover his father's skirt
, for this is unclean: they shall surely die together, the
man who lies with his father's wife and the woman also, for they have wrought uncleanness on the earth.

[12]And again, it is written a second time: 'Cursed be he who lieth with the wife of his father, for he hath
uncovered his father's shame'; and all the holy ones of Ahayah said 'So be it; so be it.'

(Now we can understand that the requirements for being a Bishop included having one wife because the people still had multiple wives in the congregation.)


Ecclesiasticus 23:16
[16]Two sorts of men multiply sin, and the third will bring wrath: a hot mind is as a burning fire, it will never
be quenched till it be consumed: a fornicator in the body of his flesh will never cease till he hath kindled a
fire.

1 Corinthians 6:18
[18]Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication
sinneth against his own body.
(As we know, a wife is the body of the man, so if a man commits fornication,
he not only sins against himself, but he also sins against his wife, because she is his flesh and bones.
On the other hand, a man cannot commit fornication by laying with his own wife, which is his flesh. Hence
though Jacob had 4 wives, he was not a fornicator or adulterer.)

Jacob didn't leave Leah for Rachel, he loved Leah as his flesh and he loved Rachel as his flesh. Rachel and Leah left their father and mother to be one flesh with their husband.{Gen 31:14-18}
Jasher 31:13
[13]And Jacob did so, and he also took Rachel for a wife, and he served Laban seven years more, and

Jacob also came to Rachel, and he loved Rachel more than Leah, and Laban gave her his maid Bilhah for a handmaid.
Jubilees 36:22-24
[22]and all her sons and his sons came to mourn over Leah his wife with him and to comfort him regarding
her, for he was lamenting her for he loved her exceedingly after Rachel her sister died;
[24]And he remembered all her deeds which she had done during her life and he lamented her exceedingly;
for he loved her with all his heart and with all his soul.

Concerning households with multiple wives, though one cannot commit fornication with one's own wife,
there are laws to keep one from committing uncleanness if one has multiple wives.

 

  1. One cannot approach one's wife while she is on her menstrual period. This law pertains unto a man regardless of how many wives he has:

Leviticus 20:18

[18]And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

   2. One cannot lay with more than one wife in one day because that is uncleanness since a man is unclean after his seed of copulation goes from him for that day. He must wash himself before even and will not be clean until after evening when the night comes. This prohibits laying with multiple wives in one day since one is unclean all that day which prevents one from committing an act of uncleanness.

 [Leviticus 15:16-18] 

[16]And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.[17]And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even.[18]The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even.

 

Concerning extra marital pleasures between an husband and wife, i.e "foreplay" the teaching is: "marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled;"[Heb 13:4] therefore a husband may lawfully be ravished in the love of his wife [Prob 5:17-18] with consensual and due benevolence seeing as though they belong to each other. [I Cor 7:3-5] So it is not unlawful  for an husband and wife to enjoy each other.

Heb 13:4  

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers Alahayim will judge. 

Pro 5:18  

Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. 
Pro 5:19  

Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

 1Co 7:3  

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 
1Co 7:4  

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 
1Co 7:5  

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 


Here are the Laws that Ahayah established for households with multiple wives


Exo 21:7

And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do. (Maidservants do not go out free in the 7th year like the menservants Lev 25:40 because the maidservant is sold to be a wife of the adono she is sold to and wives are bound to their husband as long as they live,{Rom 7:2} so she cannot leave the man she has been betrothed to. He has paid the price (dowry) for her and just has to consummate the marriage to complete the process.)
Exo 21:8

If she please not her master, H113 who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her. (If the man that bought her is not pleased with her, then she can be bought back by her family member. Lev 25:48-52 He cannot sell her to another family or nation, because he deceived her by paying the dowry for her, but not sleeping with her to make her his wife. She was supposed to be his, but he didn't do right by her, so Ahayah gave us law so that she can go back to her father or family by them redeeming (paying dowry) her because she did not get married to him by consummation, so she's free to marry once she has been redeemed by her dowry price. The redemption brings her back under the dominion of her family, so her father or near kin can give her away in marriage.)
Exo 21:10

If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish. (On the other hand, If he does lay with her to consummate the marriage, she will abide as his wife as was originally intended. Then if he takes him another wife as well, the first wife that he had purchased must receive food, raiment, and duty of marriage as is becoming of a wife. He cannot diminish her portion and care-giving because he has taken another wife. Ahayah’s law ensures that each wife is provided for in righteousness.)
Exo 21:11

And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money (If a man doesn’t provide the three requirements for his wife, he is showing that he doesn't love her and she is free to leave him though he has not committed fornication against her. His wife has a right by law to go free from him if he does not provide all three unto her  and marry a man who would love and take proper care of her. She cannot go free from her husband if he at least provides one of the three requirements though, because he did not commit fornication against her. {Matt 19:9; Mrk 10:12} If she marries or sleeps another man, though her husband provides, it is adultery. 
1Ti 5:8

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

 

  • The law also gives instruction not to defraud the first wife’s son of his birthright just as Ephraim is still counted as the firstborn though Judah is Ahayah’s preference to dwell in.

Deu 21:15

If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated: (Jacob had loved Rachel, his second wife, more than he loved Leah, but Reuben, the son of Leah, still had the birthright according to the law. When Reuben sinned, he lost it)1 Chron 5:1
Deu 21:16

Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn:
Deu 21:17

But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his

Examples of multiple wives in the law and Testimony:

  • Abraham, the father of the covenants of promise.

Gen 16:3

And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.

  • Jacob with 4 wives, of whom came the 12 tribes of Israel, According to the testimonies, The House of Israel, was built by multiple wives.{Ruth 4:11; Gen 30:4,9}

Heb 7:14

For it is evident that our Adono sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

  • This promise of the Seed who would be a blessing to the whole world, Jew and Gentile, comes from a lineage of multiple wives. To speak against multiple wives is to speak against the forefathers of Yache according to the flesh. 

  1. Hezron, son of Pharez, son of Judah, son of Jacob (multiple wives) {I Chron 2:9,21,24}

  2. Jerahmeel , 1st son of Hezron, son of Pharez, son of Judah, had multiple wives {I Chron 2:25-26}

  3. Caleb, 3rd son of Hezron, Hezron, son of Pharez, son of Judah (4 wives) 1Ch 2:18-19,46-48

  • Ahayah Alahayim had offered David more wives.

2Sa 12:8

And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

2Sa 12:9

Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of AHAYAH, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. (The evil was accounted for killing Uriah, and committing adultery by laying with another man's wife. His error was not having multiple wives because he already had wives before Bathsheba.)

 

  1. Nahor, Abraham’s older brother ( 2 wives) of which came Bethuel, the father of Rebecca. Thus making Isaac and Rebecca come from a Lineage of Households with multiple wives. {Gen 22:20-24}

  2. Simeon, son of Jacob (2 wives) {Jasher 36:1-3}

  3. Benjamin, son of Jacob (2 wives) {Jasher 44:21-22

  4. Manasseh, son of Joseph (2 wives) {I Chron 7:14}

  5. Gideon tribe of Manasseh (many wives) {Judges 8:28-31}

  6. Elkanah tribe of Ephraim, father of Samuel the prophet and judge of Israel (2 wives) {1Sa 1:1-20;7:15} 

  • Be aware and admonished dearly beloved, the spirit of lust is rampant in the world today. Guard your heart and your mind and let the testimony of Reuben , Judah, and example of Tobit guide in the getting of a wife, not for lusts sake, but according to the will of Ahayah in righteousness. 

Testament of Reuben 4:1

Pay no heed, therefore, my children, to the beauty of women, nor set your mind on their affairs; but walk in singleness of heart in the fear of AHAYAH, and expend labour on good works, and on study and on your flocks, until AHAYAH give you a wife, whom He will, that ye suffer not as I did.

Tob 6:10

The Angel said to the young man, Brother, to day we shall lodge with Raguel, who is thy cousin; hee also hath one only daughter, named Sara, I will speak for her, that she may be given thee for a wife.

Tob 6:11

For to thee doth the right of her appertain, seeing thou only art of her kindred.

Tob 6:17

And the devil shall smell it, and flee away, and never come again any more: but when thou shalt come to her, rise up both of you, and pray to Alahayim, which is merciful, who will have pity on you, and save you: fear not, for she is appointed unto thee from the beginning; and thou shalt preserve her, and she shall go with thee. Moreover I suppose that she shall bear thee children. Now when Tobias had heard these things, he loved her, and his heart was effectually joined to her. (They were instructed to pray because the deliverance was truly from Alahayim and the ashes were just the physical measure Alahayim appointed to rid of the demon. Here we also see that wives come by the appointment of Alahayim, therefore we should wait upon him to give us what he desires as Reuben admonishes us.)

Tob 8:6

Thou madest Adam, and gavest him Chiuwah his wife for an helper & stay: of them came mankind: thou hast said, It is not good that man should bee alone, let vs make unto him an aide like to himself.

Tob 8:7

And now, O AHAYAH, I take not this my sister for lust, but uprightly: therefore mercifully ordain, that wee may become aged together. (Thus are we admonished to take our wives uprightly.)

Tob 8:8

And she said with him, Amen.

To those of the bloodline of the Children of Israel, our fathers and mothers come from a lineage of multiple wives throughout the inception and building of our nation. If we are in disagreement with multiple wives, we are in disagreement with our own parents and transgressing the law, which states honor thy father and thy mother, because each one of us come from A man that had multiple wives. Furthermore our King, Yache's father according to the flesh, David, had multiple wives. It's a shame and a blot for us to speak against multiple wives when it is the very stock that we originate from. Yache never spoke against his servants Abraham, Jacob, and David about having multiple wives. We, his servants are no different. Rather we thank Ahayah for multiple wives because a lot of our women from the bloodline of Israel shall be saved by the righteousness of multiple wives in this end time according to Isaiah 4:1. If anyone of us is against multiple wives, we are against our own-selves seeing as though we would not be born if it had not been for multiple wives. We are also speaking against Yache, because he is the spirit of prophecy {Rev 19:10} and he will use multiple wives according to Isaiah 4:1, to save his daughters of Zion, so anyone who is against multiple wives is kicking against the pricks of Adono Yache.
