NowG1161 concerningG4012 the things whereofG4012 G3739 you wroteG1125 to me: It is goodG2570 for a manG444 not to touchG680 a woman.G1135
Nevertheless,G1161 to avoidG1223 fornication,G4202 let everyG1538 man haveG2192 his ownG1438 wife,G1135 and let everyG1538 woman haveG2192 her ownG2398 husband.G435
Let the husbandG435 renderG591 to the wifeG1135 dueG3784 benevolence:G2133 and likewiseG3668 alsoG2532 the wifeG1135 to the husband.G435
The wifeG1135 has not powerG1850 of her ownG2398 body,G4983 but the husband:G435 and likewiseG3668 alsoG2532 the husbandG435 has not powerG1850 of his ownG2398 body,G4983 but the wife.G1135
DefraudG650 you not oneG240 the other,G240 exceptG1509 it be with consentG4859 for a time,G2540 that you may giveG4980 yourselves to fastingG3521 and prayer;G4335 and comeG4905 togetherG1909 again,G3825 that SatanG4567 temptG3985 you not for yourG5216 incontinency.G192
But I speakG3004 thisG5124 by permission,G4774 and not of commandment.G2003
For I wouldG2309 that allG3956 menG444 were evenG2532 as I myself.G1683 But everyG1538 man hasG2192 his properG2398 giftG5486 of God,G2316 oneG3739 G3303 afterG3779 thisG3779 manner,G3779 and anotherG3588 afterG3779 that.
I sayG3004 thereforeG1161 to the unmarriedG22 and widows,G5503 It is goodG2570 for them ifG1437 they abideG3306 evenG2504 as I.
But ifG1487 they cannotG3756 contain,G1467 let them marry:G1060 for it is betterG2909 to marryG1060 thanG2228 to burn.G4448
And to the marriedG1060 I command,G3853 yet not I, but the Lord,G2962 Let not the wifeG1135 departG5562 from her husband:G435
But and ifG1437 she depart,G5562 let her remainG3306 unmarried G22orG2228 be reconciledG2644 to her husband:G435 and let not the husbandG435 putG863 awayG863 his wife.G1135
But to the restG3062 speakG3004 I, not the Lord:G2962 IfG1487 anyG1536 brotherG80 hasG2192 a wifeG1135 that believesG571 not, and she be pleasedG4909 to dwellG3611 with him, let him not putG863 her away.G863
And the womanG1135 whichG3748 hasG2192 an husbandG435 that believesG571 not, and if he be pleasedG4909 to dwellG3611 with her, let her not leaveG863 him.
For the unbelievingG571 husbandG435 is sanctifiedG37 by the wife,G1135 and the unbelievingG571 wifeG1135 is sanctifiedG37 by the husband:G435 elseG1893 G686 were yourG5216 childrenG5043 unclean;G169 but nowG3568 are they holy.G40
But ifG1487 the unbelievingG571 depart,G5562 let him depart.G5562 A brotherG80 orG2228 a sisterG79 is not under bondageG1402 in suchG5108 cases: but GodG2316 has calledG2564 us to peace.G1515
For whatG5101 knowG1492 you, O wife,G1135 whetherG1487 you shall saveG4982 your husband?G435 orG2228 howG5101 knowG1492 you, O man,G435 whetherG1487 you shall saveG4982 your wife?G1135
But as GodG2316 has distributedG3307 to everyG1538 man, as the LordG2962 has calledG2564 everyG1538 one, soG3779 let him walk.G4043 And soG3779 ordainG1299 I in allG3956 churches.G1577
Is anyG5100 man calledG2564 being circumcised?G4059 let him not becomeG1986 uncircumcised.G1986 Is anyG5100 calledG2564 in uncircumcision?G203 let him not be circumcised.G4059
CircumcisionG4061 is nothing,G3762 and uncircumcisionG203 is nothing,G3762 but the keepingG5084 of the commandmentsG1785 of God.G2316
Let everyG1538 man abideG3306 in the sameG5026 callingG2821 whereinG1722 G3757 he was called.G2564
Are you calledG2564 being a servant?G1401 careG3199 not for it: but ifG1499 you mayG1410 be madeG1096 free,G1658 useG5530 it rather.G3123
For he that is calledG2564 in the Lord,G2962 being a servant,G1401 is the Lord'sG2962 freeman:G558 likewiseG3668 alsoG2532 he that is called,G2564 being free,G1658 is Christ'sG5547 servant.G1401
You are boughtG59 with a price;G5092 be not you the servantsG1401 of men.G444
Brothers,G80 let everyG1538 man, whereinG1722 G3757 he is called,G2564 thereinG1722 G5129 abideG3306 with God.G2316
NowG1161 concerningG4012 virginsG3933 I haveG2192 noG3756 commandmentG2003 of the Lord:G2962 yetG1161 I giveG1325 my judgment,G1106 as one that has obtainedG1653 mercyG1653 of the LordG2962 to be faithful.G4103
I supposeG3543 thereforeG3767 that thisG5124 is goodG2570 for the presentG1764 distress,G318 I say, that it is goodG2570 for a manG444 soG3779 to be.
Are you boundG1210 to a wife?G1135 seekG2212 not to be loosed.G3089 Are you loosedG3080 from a wife?G1135 seekG2212 not a wife.G1135
But and ifG1437 you marry,G1060 you have not sinned;G264 and ifG1437 a virginG3933 marry,G1060 she has not sinned.G264 NeverthelessG1161 suchG5108 shall haveG2192 troubleG2347 in the flesh:G4561 but I spareG5339 you.
But thisG5124 I say,G5346 brothers,G80 the timeG2540 is short:G4958 it remains,G2076 3063 that bothG2532 they that haveG2192 wivesG1135 be as though they hadG2192 none;G3361
And they that weep,G2799 as though they weptG2799 not; and they that rejoice,G5463 as though they rejoicedG5463 not; and they that buy,G59 as though they possessedG2722 not;
And they that useG5530 thisG5127 world,G2889 as not abusingG2710 it: for the fashionG4976 of thisG5129 worldG2889 passesG3855 away.
But I wouldG2309 have you withoutG275 carefulness.G275 He that is unmarriedG22 caresG3309 for the things that belong to the Lord,G2962 howG4459 he may pleaseG700 the Lord:G2962
But he that is marriedG1060 caresG3309 for the things that are of the world,G2889 howG4459 he may pleaseG700 his wife.G1135
There is differenceG3307 alsoG2532 betweenG3307 a wifeG1135 and a virgin.G3933 The unmarriedG22 womanG1135 caresG3309 for the things of the Lord,G2962 that she may be holyG40 bothG2532 in bodyG4983 and in spirit:G4151 but she that is marriedG1060 caresG3309 for the things of the world,G2889 howG4459 she may pleaseG700 her husband.G435
And thisG5124 I speakG3004 for yourG5216 ownG846 profit;G4851 not that I may castG1911 a snareG1029 on you, but for that which is comely,G2158 and that you may attendG2145 on the LordG2962 withoutG563 distraction.G563
But ifG1487 anyG5100 man thinkG3543 that he behavesG807 himself uncomelyG807 towardG1909 his virgin,G3933 ifG1437 she passG5230 the flowerG5230 of her age,G5230 and needG3784 soG3779 require,G1096 let him doG4160 whatG3739 he will,G2309 he sinsG264 not: let them marry.G1060
NeverthelessG1161 he that standsG2476 steadfastG1476 in his heart,G2588 havingG2192 noG3361 necessity,G318 but hasG2192 powerG1849 overG4012 his ownG2398 will,G2307 and has soG5124 decreedG2919 in his heartG2588 that he will keepG5083 his virgin,G3933 doesG4160 well.G2573
SoG5620 thenG2532 he that gives her in marriageG1547 doesG4160 well;G2573 but he that gives her not in marriageG1547 doesG4160 better.G2573
The wifeG1135 is boundG1210 by the lawG3551 as longG5550 as her husbandG435 lives;G2198 but ifG1437 her husbandG435 be dead,G2837 she is atG1657 libertyG1658 to be marriedG1060 to whomG3739 she will;G2309 onlyG3440 in the Lord.G2962
But she is happierG3107 ifG1437 she soG3779 abide,G3306 afterG2596 my judgment:G1106 and I thinkG1380 alsoG2504 that I haveG2192 the SpiritG4151 of God.G2316
