No verse in the Bible specifically forbids a person of one race to marry another. The Bible itself speaks of only one race—the human race. Acts:17:26 tells us that God “hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” However, God has drawn a distinction between the saved and the lost: “Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?” (2 Corinthians:6:14). With respect to Israel, the Lord commanded Israel to make no marriages with other nations, as they were to be a special and distinct people for the purpose of God (Deuteronomy:7:3–4; 1 Kings:11:2; etc.). But these commands were strictly for Israel.

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?"
