Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers 15, 16 These are two very difficult verses, which should perhaps, be rendered as follows: And what is this [pair which is become] one? Therefore take heed to yourselves [literally, your spirit], and with respect to the wife of thy youth--Let none be faithless.
Pulpit Commentary Verse Yet had he the residue of the spirit. The passage has always been a crux, and has received many interpretations.

They made their lives bitter to them; yet, in the sight of others, they pretend to be tender of them. Consider she is thy wife; thy own; the nearest relation thou hast in the world. The wife is to be looked on, not as a servant, but as a companion to the husband. There is an oath of God between them, which is not to be trifled with.
Man and wife should continue to their lives' end, in holy love and peace. Did not God make one, one Eve for one Adam? Yet God could have made another Eve.
