3 The Sanctity Of Marriage Sanctity defined: The state of being sanctified; Holy; Sacredness, Solemnity. The sanctity of marriage means it is a solemn and sacred relationship. Enter it with respect as we would view a private room with a do not disturb sign on the door.

10 Be Reconciled (I Cor. 7:1 1) KATALLASO – Be reconciled to God (2 Cor. 5:20) DIALLASSO – Mutual concession (Matt. 5:24) And this is the reason why the Apostle never uses diallasso [a word used only in Matt. 5:24, in the N.T.] in this connection, but always katallasso, because the former word denotes mutual concession after mutual hostility [frequently exemplified in the Sept.] and idea absent from katallasso ( Vine, p. 261; quote of Lightfoot; Notes On The Epistles of Paul, p. 288)
