“All the troubles men find in marriage…”

Yesterday at Pembroke we looked at Genesis 16.

On Genesis 16:5, regarding the “domestic broil” between Abram and Sarai, John Calvin says this:

As to domestic broils, we know that the principal part of social life, which God honored among men, is spent in marriage; and yet various inconveniences intervene which defile that good situation as with spots. It benefits the faithful to prepare themselves to cut off these occasions of trouble. For this purpose, it is of great importance to reflect on the origin of the evil; for all the troubles men find in marriage they should account to sin.
