Verse Navigation

add

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
