But as soone as I was a man, I put awaye childishnes. 12 Now we se thorow a glasse in a darke speakynge, but the shal we se face to face.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 Thus was heaue and earth fynished with all their hoost, 2 and thus in the seuenth daye God ended his worke, which he had made, & rested in the seuenth daye from all his workes which he had made: 3 And blessed the seuenth daye, & sanctified it, because yt in it he rested from all his workes, which God created and made. 4 These are the generacions of heaue and earth whan they were created, in the tyme whan the LORDE God made heauen and earth: 5 before there was eny twygg vpon earth, and or euer there grew eny grene herbe vpon the felde. For the LORDE God had yet sent no rayne vpon ye earth, nether was there eny man to tylle the earth. 6 But there arose a myst from the earth, & watered all the londe. 7 And ye LORDE God shope man eue of the moulde of the earth, & brethed in to his face ye breth of life. And so was man made a lyuynge soule. 8 The LORDE God also planted a garde of pleasure in Eden, towarde ye east, and set man therin whom he had made. 9 And the LORDE God caused to sprynge out of the earth all maner trees, pleasaut to loke vpo, and good to eate: and the tre of life in the myddest of the garden, and the tre of knowlege of good and euell. 10 And out of Eden there wente a ryuer, to water the garden, and there deuyded it selfe into foure heade waters. 11 The first is called Phison, which renneth aboute all the londe of Heuyla. 12 And there is founde golde, (& the golde of that countre is precious,) and there is founde Bedellion, and the precious stone Onix. 13 The second water is called Gihon, which runneth aboute the whole londe of ye Morias. 14 The thirde water is called Hydeckell, which runneth towarde the east syde of ye Assirias. The fourth water is Euphrates. 15 And the LORDE God toke man, & set him in the pleasaunt garden of Eden, to dresse it & to kepe it. 16 And the LORDE God commaunded man, sayege: Thou shalt eate of all maner trees in ye garden: 17 But of ye tre of knowlege of good and euell, shalt thou not eate. For loke in what daye so euer thou eatest therof, thou shalt dye the death. 18 And the LORDE God sayde: It is not good yt ma shulde be alone. I wil make him an helpe, to beare him copany. 19 And whan God the LORDE had made of the earth all maner beastes of the felde, & all maner foules vnder the heaue, he brought them vnto man, to se what he wolde call the: For as ma called all maner of liuinge soules, so are their names. 20 And man gaue names vnto all maner catell, & vnto the foules vnder the heaue, and vnto all maner beastes of ye felde. But vnto man there was founde no helpe, to beare him company. 21 Then the LORDE God caused an herde slepe to fall vpon man, and he slepte. And he toke out one of his rybbes, and (in steade therof) he fylled vp ye place with flesh. 22 And the LORDE God made a woman, of ye rybbe that he toke out of man, and brought her vnto him. 23 Then sayde man: This is once bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shalbe called woman, because she was take of man. 24 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, & they two shalbe one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Now are they not twayne the, but one flesh. 9 Let not man therfore put asunder that, which God hath coupled together. 10 And at home his disciples axed him agayne of ye same. 11 And he sayde vnto the: Who so euer putteth awaye his wife, & marieth another, breaketh wedlocke to her warde. 12 And yf a woma forsake hir hussbande, & be maried to another, she comitteth aduoutrie.

1 As concernynge the thinges wherof ye wrote vnto me, I answere: It is good for a man not to touche a woman. 2 Neuertheles to avoyde whordome, let euery man haue his awne wife, and let euery woman haue hir awne hussbande. 3 Let the ma geue vnto the wife due beneuolence: likewyse also the wife vnto ye man. 4 The wife hath not power ouer hir awne body, but the hussbande: & likewyse the man hath not power ouer his awne body, but the wife. 5 Withdrawe not yor selues one fro another, excepte it be with the consent of both for a tyme, that ye maye geue youre selues vnto fastinge and prayer, and the come together agayne, lest Sathan tempte you for yor incontynecye. 6 But this I saye of fauoure, and not of commaundemet.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Though I spake with the tunges of men and angels, and yet had not loue, I were euen as sowndinge brasse, or as a tynklinge Cymball. 2 And though I coulde prophecy, & vnderstode all secretes, and all knowlege, and had all faith, so that I coulde moue moutaynes out of their places, and yet had not loue, I were nothinge. 3 And though I bestowed all my goodes to fede ye poore, and though I gaue my body euen that I burned, and yet haue not loue, it profiteth me nothinge. 4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges. 8 Though prophecienges fayle, or tunges ceasse, or knowlege perishe, yet loue falleth neuer awaye. 9 For oure knowlege is vnparfecte, and oure prophecienge is vnparfecte. 10 But wha that which is perfecte, commeth, then shal the vnparfecte be done awaye. 11 Whan I was a childe, I spake as a childe, I vnderstode as a childe, I ymagined as a childe. But as soone as I was a man, I put awaye childishnes. 12 Now we se thorow a glasse in a darke speakynge, but the shal we se face to face. Now I knowe vnperfectly: but the shal I knowe eue as I am knowne. 13 Now abydeth faith, hope, loue, these thre: but the greatest of these is loue.

1 Corinthians 7:24-40

24 Brethren let euery one wherin he is called, therin abyde with God. 25 As concernynge virgins, I haue no commaundement of the LORDE, neuertheles I saye my goodmeanynge, as I haue optayned mercy of the LORDE to be faithfull. 26 I suppose it is good for ye present necessite: for it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bounde vnto a wife, seke not to be lowsed: Art thou lowsed fro a wife, seke not a wife. 28 But yf thou take a wife, thou synnest not. And yf a virgin mary, she synneth not Neuertheles soch shal haue trouble in the flesshe. But I fauoure you. 29 Howbeit this I saye brethren: the tyme is shorte. Farthermore this is the meanynge, yt they which haue wyues, be as though they had none: 30 and they that wepe, be as though they wepte not: and they that reioyse, be as though they reioysed not: & they that bye, be as though they possessed not: 31 & they that vse this worlde, be as though they vsed it not. For the fasshion off this worlde passeth awaye. 32 But I wolde that ye shulde be without care. He that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE,how he maye please the LORDE. 33 But he that is maried, careth for the thinges of the worlde, how he maye please his wife, 34 and is deuyded. A woman and a virgin that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE, that she maye be holy both in body & also in sprete. But she that is maried, careth for ye thinges of the worlde, how she maye please hir hussbande. 35 This I saye for youre profit, not that I wil tangle you in a snare, but for that which is honest and comly vnto you, that ye maye cotynually cleue vnto the LORDE without hynderaunce. 36 But yf eny man thinke that it is vncomly for his virgin yf she passe the tyme of mariage, and if nede so requyre, let him do what he lyst, he synneth not, let the be coupled in mariage. 37 Neuertheles he that purposeth surely in his hert, hauynge no nede, but hath power of his awne wyll, and determeth so in his hert to kepe his virgin, doth well. Fynally, he that ioyneth his virgin in mariage, doth well: 38 but he that ioyneth not his virgin in mariage, doth beter. 39 The wife is bounde to the lawe, as longe as hir hussbande lyueth. But yf hir hussbande slepe, she is at liberty to mary vnto whom she wil, onely that it be done in the LORDE. 40 But she is happier yf she so abyde after my iudgment. I thinke verely that I also haue the sprete of God.

1 Corinthians 13:4-6

4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth,

Romans 7:1-3

1 Knowe ye not brethren (for I speake vnto them that knowe the lawe) how that ye lawe hath power vpon a man as longe as he lyueth? 2 For the woman yt is in subieccion to the man, is bounde vnto the lawe whyle the man lyueth: but yf the man dye, then is she lowsed from the lawe that concerneth the man. 3 Yf she be now with another man, whyle the man lyueth, she shal be called a wedlocke breaker. But yf the man be deed, then is she fre from the lawe, so that she is no wedlocke breaker, yf she be with another man.

Isaiah 62:5

5 And like as yonge ma taketh a doughter to mariage, so shal God mary himself vnto yi sonnes. And as a brydegrome is glad of his bryde, so shal God reioyse ouer the.

Mark 10:12

12 And yf a woma forsake hir hussbande, & be maried to another, she comitteth aduoutrie.

2 But a Bisshoppe must be blamelesse, the hussbade of one wife, sober, discrete, manerly, harberous, apte to teach:

Hebrews 13:1-25

1 Let brotherly loue cotynue. 2 Be not forgetfull to lodge straungers: for therby haue dyuerse receaued angels in to their houses vnawares. 3 Remembre them that are in bondes, eue as though ye were bounde with them: and be myndefull off them which are in aduersite, as ye which are also in the bodye. 4 Let wedlocke be had in pryce in all poyntes, & let ye chamber be vndefyled. For whorekepers and aduouterers God wil iudge. 5 Let youre conuersacion be without couetousnes, and be content with that ye haue allready, for he hath sayde: I wyl not fayle the nether forsake the, 6 so that we maye boldely saye: The LORDE is my helper, and I wyl not feare what man maye do vnto me. 7 Remembre the which haue the ouersighte of you, which haue declared vnto you the worde of God. The ende of whose couersacion se that ye loke vpon, and folowe their faith. 8 Iesus Christ yesterdaye and Todaye, & the same cotinueth for euer. 9 Be not caried aboute wt dyuerse and straunge lernynges: for it is a good thinge that the herte be stablysshed with grace, and not with meates, which haue not profited them, that haue had their pastyme in them. 10 We haue an altare, wherof they haue no power to eate, which serue in the Tabernacle. 11 For the bodies of those beestes whose bloude is broughte in to the holy place by ye hye prest to pourge synne, are brent without the tetes. 12 Therfore Iesus also, to sanctifye ye people by his awne bloude, suffred without ye gate. 13 Let vs go forth therfore out of the tentes, and suffre rebuke with him: 14 for here haue we no contynuynge cite, but we seke one to come. 15 Let vs therfore by him offre allwayes vnto God the sacrifice of prayse: that is to saye, the frute of those lippes which confesse his name. 16 To do good and to destribute forget not, for wt soch sacrifices God is pleased. 17 Obey them that haue the ouersighte off you, and submytte youre selues vnto them: for they watch for youre soules, euen as they that must geue accoptes therfore, that they maye do it with ioye, and not with grefe: for that is an vnprofitable thinge for you. 18 Praye for vs. We haue confidence, because we haue a good coscience in all thinges, and desyre to lyue honestly. 19 But I desyre you ye more abundauntly, that ye so do, yt I maye be restored vnto you the more quyckly. 20 The God of peace (that broughte agayue fro the deed oure LORDE Iesus the greate shepherde of the shepe thorow the bloude of the euerlastinge Testament) 21 make you perfecte in all good workes, to do his wyll, workynge in you that which is pleasaunt in his sighte thorow Iesus Christ, to whom be prayse for euer and euer Amen. 22 I beseke you brethren, suffre the worde of exhortacion, for I haue wrytten vnto you in few wordes. 23 Knowe or brother Timotheus, whom we haue sent from vs, with whom (yf he come shortly) I wil se you. 24 Salute the that haue the ouersighte of you and all ye sayntes. The brethren of Italy salute you. 25 Grace be with you all, Amen.

1 Peter 3:1-11

1 Likewyse let the wyues be in subieccion to their hussbandes, that euen they which beleue not the worde, maye without the worde be wonne by ye couersacion of the wyues, 2 whan they beholde yor pure conuersacion in feare. 3 Whose apparell shal not be outwarde wt broyded heer, & hanginge on of golde, or in puttynge on of gorgious araye, 4 but let ye inwarde ma of ye hert be vncorrupte wt a meke & a quyete sprete, which before God is moch set by. 5 For after this maner in the olde tyme, dyd ye holy weme which trusted in God, tyer the selues, & were obedient vnto their hussbades: 6 Euen as Sara obeyed Abraham, and called him lorde: whose doughters ye are, as loge as ye do well, not beynge afrayed for eny trouble. 7 Likewyse ye men, dwell with them acordinge vnto knowlege, geuynge honor vnto the wife, as to the weaker vessel: & as vnto the yt are heyres with you of the grace of life, that youre prayers be not let. 8 But in conclusion be ye all of one mynde, one suffre with another, loue as brethren, be pitefull, be curteous. 9 Recopence not euell for euell, nether rebuke for rebuke: but cotrary wyse, blesse: and knowe that ye are called therto, euen yt ye shulde be heyres of ye blessynge. 10 For who so listeth to lyue, and wolde fayne se good dayes, Let him refrayne his tonge from euell, and his lippes yt they speake no gyle. 11 Let him eschue euell, & do good: Let him seke peace and ensue it.

9 But I saye vnto you: Whosoeuer putteth awaye his wife (excepte it be for fornicacion) and marieth another, breaketh wedlocke. And who so marieth her yt is deuorced, commytteth aduoutrye.

1 Peter 3:1

1 Likewyse let the wyues be in subieccion to their hussbandes, that euen they which beleue not the worde, maye without the worde be wonne by ye couersacion of the wyues,

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges. 8 Though prophecienges fayle, or tunges ceasse, or knowlege perishe, yet loue falleth neuer awaye.

Psalms 85:10

10 Mercy and trueth are met together, rightuousnesse and peace kysse ech other.

1 Corinthians 7:12-15

12 As for the other, vnto the saye I, not ye LORDE: Yf eny brother haue an vnbeleuynge wife, and she is content to dwell with him, let him not put hir awaye. 13 And yf a woman haue an vnbeleuynge hussbande, and he is content to dwell with her, let her not put him awaye. 14 For the vnbeleuynge hussbande is sanctified by the wife, and the vnbeleuynge wife is sanctified by the hussbande: or els were youre children vncleane, but now are they holy. 15 But yf the vnbeleuynge departe, let him departe. A brother or a sister is not boude in soch cases, but God hath called vs in peace.

Matthew 5:32

Malachi 2:13-16

13 Now haue ye brought it to this poynte agayne, that the aulter of the LORDE is couered with teares wepynge and mournynge: so that I will nomore regarde the meatofferynge, nether wil I receaue or accepte enythinge at youre hodes. 14 And yet ye saye: wherfore? Euen because that where as the LORDE made a couenaut betwixte ye and the wife off thy youth, thou hast despysed her: Yet is she thyne owne copanyon and maried wife. 15 So dyd not the one, & yet had he an excellent sprete. What dyd then the one? He sought the sede promised of God. Therfore loke well to youre sprete, & let no man despyse ye wife of his youth. 16 Yf thou hatest her, put her awaye, sayeth the LORDE God of Israel and geue her a clothinge for the scorne, sayeth the LORDE of hoostes. Loke well then to youre sprete, and despyse her not.

2 Corinthians 6:14

14 Set youre selues therfore at large.Beare not a straunge yock with the vnbeleuers. For what fellishippe hath righteousnes with vnrighteousnes? What company hath lighte wt darknesse?

1 Corinthians 13:4-10

4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges. 8 Though prophecienges fayle, or tunges ceasse, or knowlege perishe, yet loue falleth neuer awaye. 9 For oure knowlege is vnparfecte, and oure prophecienge is vnparfecte. 10 But wha that which is perfecte, commeth, then shal the vnparfecte be done awaye.

Matthew 19:2-9

2 & moch people folowed him, and he healed them there. 3 Then came vnto him the Pharises & tepted him, & sayde vnto him: Is it laufull for a man to put awaye his wife for eny maner of cause? 4 He answered & sayde vnto the: Haue ye not red, how yt he which made (man) at the begynnynge, made the ma & woma, 5 & sayde: For this cause shal a ma leaue father & mother, & cleue vnto his wife, & they two shalbe one fleshe. 6 Now are they not twayne then, but one flesh. Let not man therfore put a sunder, yt which God hath coupled together. 7 Then sayde they: Why dyd Moses then comaunde to geue a testimonyall of deuorsement, & to put her awaye? 8 He sayde vnto the: Moses (because of ye hardnes of yor hertes) suffred you to put awaye youre wyues: Neuertheles fro the begynnynge it hath not bene so. 9 But I saye vnto you: Whosoeuer putteth awaye his wife (excepte it be for fornicacion) and marieth another, breaketh wedlocke. And who so marieth her yt is deuorced, commytteth aduoutrye.

Proverbs 19:14

14 House & riches maye a ma haue by ye heretage of his elders, but a discrete woma is the gifte of the LORDE.

1 Corinthians 7:39

39 The wife is bounde to the lawe, as longe as hir hussbande lyueth. But yf hir hussbande slepe, she is at liberty to mary vnto whom she wil, onely that it be done in the LORDE.

Ephesians 5:25-33

25 Ye hussbandes loue youre wyues, euen as Christ loued the congregacion, and gaue himselfe for it, 26 to sanctifye it, and clensed it in the fountayne of water by the worde, 27 to make it vnto himselfe a glorious congregacion, hauynge no spot ner wrynkle, ner eny soch thinge, but that it shulde be holy and without blame. 28 So oughte men also to loue their wyues, euen as their awne bodyes. He that loueth his wife, loueth himselfe. 29 For no ma euer yet hated his awne flesshe, but norisheth and cherissheth it, euen as the LORDE doth also the congregacion. 30 For we are membres of his body, of his flesh and of his bones. 31 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, and they two shal be one flesh: 32 This is a greate secrete: but I speake of Christ and the congregacion. 33 Neuertheles do ye so, that euery one of you loue his wife euen as himselfe: but let the wife feare hir hussbande.

Proverbs 18:22

22 Who so fyndeth a wife fyndeth a good thynge, & receaueth an wholsome benefite of the LORDE.

Genesis 2:24

24 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, & they two shalbe one flesh.

Hebrews 13:4

4 Let wedlocke be had in pryce in all poyntes, & let ye chamber be vndefyled. For whorekepers and aduouterers God wil iudge.

Proverbs 21:9

9 It is better to dwell in a corner vnder ye house toppe, then with a braulinge woman in a wyde house.

Ephesians 5:22-33

22 Let the wemen submytte them selues vnto their hussbandes, as vnto the LORDE. 23 For the hussbande is the wyues heade, eue as Christ also is the heade of the congregacion, and he is the Sauioure of his body. 24 Therfore as the congregacion is in subieccion to Christ, likewyse let the wyues be in subieccion to their hussbandes in all thinges. 25 Ye hussbandes loue youre wyues, euen as Christ loued the congregacion, and gaue himselfe for it, 26 to sanctifye it, and clensed it in the fountayne of water by the worde, 27 to make it vnto himselfe a glorious congregacion, hauynge no spot ner wrynkle, ner eny soch thinge, but that it shulde be holy and without blame. 28 So oughte men also to loue their wyues, euen as their awne bodyes. He that loueth his wife, loueth himselfe. 29 For no ma euer yet hated his awne flesshe, but norisheth and cherissheth it, euen as the LORDE doth also the congregacion. 30 For we are membres of his body, of his flesh and of his bones. 31 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, and they two shal be one flesh: 32 This is a greate secrete: but I speake of Christ and the congregacion. 33 Neuertheles do ye so, that euery one of you loue his wife euen as himselfe: but let the wife feare hir hussbande.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Loue is pacient & curteous, loue envyeth not, loue doth not frowardly, is not puft vp, dealeth not dishonestly, 5 seketh not hir awne, is not prouoked vnto anger, thynketh not euell, 6 reioyseth not ouer iniquyte, but reioyseth in the trueth, 7 beareth all thinges, beleueth all thinges, hopeth all thinges, suffreth all thinges.

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 As concernynge the thinges wherof ye wrote vnto me, I answere: It is good for a man not to touche a woman. 2 Neuertheles to avoyde whordome, let euery man haue his awne wife, and let euery woman haue hir awne hussbande. 3 Let the ma geue vnto the wife due beneuolence: likewyse also the wife vnto ye man. 4 The wife hath not power ouer hir awne body, but the hussbande: & likewyse the man hath not power ouer his awne body, but the wife. 5 Withdrawe not yor selues one fro another, excepte it be with the consent of both for a tyme, that ye maye geue youre selues vnto fastinge and prayer, and the come together agayne, lest Sathan tempte you for yor incontynecye. 6 But this I saye of fauoure, and not of commaundemet. 7 Howbeit I wolde rather yt all me were as I am. Neuertheles euery one hath his proper gifte of God: one thus, another so. 8 To them verely yt are vnmaried and to wedowes I saye: It is good for the that they abyde also as I do. 9 But yf they cannot absteyne, let them mary. For it is better to mary, then to burne. 10 But vnto them that are maried, commaunde not I, but the LORDE, that the wife separate not her selfe from the hussbande: 11 but yf she separate her selfe, yt she remayne vnmaried, or be reconcyled to hir hussbande: and let not the hussbande put awaye his wife from him. 12 As for the other, vnto the saye I, not ye LORDE: Yf eny brother haue an vnbeleuynge wife, and she is content to dwell with him, let him not put hir awaye. 13 And yf a woman haue an vnbeleuynge hussbande, and he is content to dwell with her, let her not put him awaye. 14 For the vnbeleuynge hussbande is sanctified by the wife, and the vnbeleuynge wife is sanctified by the hussbande: or els were youre children vncleane, but now are they holy. 15 But yf the vnbeleuynge departe, let him departe. A brother or a sister is not boude in soch cases, but God hath called vs in peace. 16 For what knowest thou O woma, whether thou shalt saue ye ma? Or what knowest thou O man, whether thou shalt saue the woman? 17 But euen as God hath distributed vnto euery one and as the LORDE hath called euery man, so let him walke: and so orden I in all congregacions. 18 Yf eny man be called beynge circumcysed let him take no Heythenshippe vpon him. Yf eny man be called in the Heythenshippe, let him not be circumcysed. 19 Circumcision is nothinge, and vncircumcision is nothinge, but the kepynge of the commaundementes of God. 20 Let euery one abyde in the callynge wherin he is called. 21 Art thou called a seruaut, care not for it: neuertheles yf thou mayest be fre, vse it rather. 22 For he that is called in the LORDE beynge a seruaute, is a fre man of the LORDE. Likewyse he that is called beynge fre, is a seruaut of Christ. 23 Ye are dearly boughte, be not ye the seruauntes of men. 24 Brethren let euery one wherin he is called, therin abyde with God. 25 As concernynge virgins, I haue no commaundement of the LORDE, neuertheles I saye my goodmeanynge, as I haue optayned mercy of the LORDE to be faithfull. 26 I suppose it is good for ye present necessite: for it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bounde vnto a wife, seke not to be lowsed: Art thou lowsed fro a wife, seke not a wife. 28 But yf thou take a wife, thou synnest not. And yf a virgin mary, she synneth not Neuertheles soch shal haue trouble in the flesshe. But I fauoure you. 29 Howbeit this I saye brethren: the tyme is shorte. Farthermore this is the meanynge, yt they which haue wyues, be as though they had none: 30 and they that wepe, be as though they wepte not: and they that reioyse, be as though they reioysed not: & they that bye, be as though they possessed not: 31 & they that vse this worlde, be as though they vsed it not. For the fasshion off this worlde passeth awaye. 32 But I wolde that ye shulde be without care. He that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE,how he maye please the LORDE. 33 But he that is maried, careth for the thinges of the worlde, how he maye please his wife, 34 and is deuyded. A woman and a virgin that is syngle, careth for the thinges of the LORDE, that she maye be holy both in body & also in sprete. But she that is maried, careth for ye thinges of the worlde, how she maye please hir hussbande. 35 This I saye for youre profit, not that I wil tangle you in a snare, but for that which is honest and comly vnto you, that ye maye cotynually cleue vnto the LORDE without hynderaunce. 36 But yf eny man thinke that it is vncomly for his virgin yf she passe the tyme of mariage, and if nede so requyre, let him do what he lyst, he synneth not, let the be coupled in mariage. 37 Neuertheles he that purposeth surely in his hert, hauynge no nede, but hath power of his awne wyll, and determeth so in his hert to kepe his virgin, doth well. Fynally, he that ioyneth his virgin in mariage, doth well: 38 but he that ioyneth not his virgin in mariage, doth beter. 39 The wife is bounde to the lawe, as longe as hir hussbande lyueth. But yf hir hussbande slepe, she is at liberty to mary vnto whom she wil, onely that it be done in the LORDE. 40 But she is happier yf she so abyde after my iudgment. I thinke verely that I also haue the sprete of God.
