1 Corinthians 7

  1 G4012 But concerning G1161   G3739 what G1125 you wrote G1473 to me; G2570 It is good G444 for a man G1135 [2a woman G3361 1to not touch]. G680  
  2 G1223 But because of G1161   G3588 the G4202 harlotries, G1538 [2each man G3588   G1438 4his own G1135 5wife G2192 1let 3have], G2532 and G1538 [2each woman G3588   G2398 4her own G435 5husband G2192 1let 3have]!
  3 G3588 [5to the G1135 6wife G3588 2the G435 3husband G3588 7the G3784 9owed G2133 8good-will G591 1Let 4render], G3668 and in like manner G1161   G2532 also G3588 the G1135 wife G3588 to the G435 husband!
  4 G3588 The G1135 wife G3588   G2398 [3her own G4983 4body G3756 1does not G1850 2exercise authority over], G235 but G3588 the G435 husband. G3668 And in like manner G1161   G2532 also G3588 the G435 husband G3588 [3his own G2398   G4983 4body G3756 1does not G1850 2exercise authority over], G237.1 but the G1135 wife.
  5 G3361 Do not G650 deprive G240 one another, G1509 except G5100   G302   G1537 for G4859 harmony's sake G4314 for G2540 a time, G2443 that G4980 you should relax G3588 in the G3521 fasting G2532 and G3588   G4335 prayer! G2532 and G3825 again G1909 at the same time G3588   G1473   G4905 you should come together, G2443 that G3361 [2should not G3985 3test G1473 4you G3588   G4567 1Satan] G1223 because of G3588   G192 your intemperance. G1473  
  6 G3778 But this G1161   G3004 I say G2596 according to G4774 allowance, G3756 not G2596 according to G2003 command.
  7 G2309 For I want G1063   G3956 all G444 men G1510.1 to be G5613 as G2532 even G1683 myself; G235 but G1538 each G2398 [2his own G5486 3favor G2192 1has] G1537 from G2316 God; G3739 one G3303   G3779 so, G3739 and another G1161   G3779 so.
  8 G3004 But I say G1161   G3588 to the G22 unmarried G2532 and G3588 to the G5503 widows; G2570 [2good G1473 3for them G1510.2.3 1it is] G1437 if G3306 they remain G5613 as G2504 even I.
  9 G1487 But if G1161   G3756 they do not G1467 control themselves, G1060 let them marry! G2908 [3better G1063 1For G1510.2.3 2it is] G1060 to marry G2228 than G4448 to be set on fire.
  10 G3588 And to the ones G1161   G1060 being married G3853 I exhort, G3756 not G1473 I, G235 but G3588 the G2962 Lord, G1135 that a wife G575 [3from G435 4a husband G3361 1not G5563 2separate].
  11 G1437 But if G1161   G2532 even G5563 she should separate, G3306 let her remain G22 unmarried, G2228 or G3588 [2to the G435 3husband G2644 1be reconciled]! G2532 and G435 a man's G1135 wife G3361 is not G863 to be let go.
  12 G3588 And to the G1161   G3062 rest G1473 I G3004 say, G3756 not G3588 the G2962 Lord; G1536 if any G80 brother G1135 [3wife G2192 1has G571 2an unbelieving], G2532 and G1473 she G4909 assents G3611 to live G3326 with G1473 him, G3361 he is not G863 to leave her! G1473  
  13 G2532 And G1135 a woman G3748 who G2192 has G435 [2husband G571 1an unbelieving], G2532 and G1473 he G4909 assents G3611 to live G3326 with G1473 her, G3361 she is not G863 to leave G1473 him!
  14 G37 [5is sanctified G1063 1For G3588   G435 4husband G3588 2the G571 3unbelieving] G1722 by G3588 the G1135 wife; G2532 and G37 [4is sanctified G3588   G1135 3wife G3588 1the G571 2unbelieving] G1722 by G3588 the G435 husband; G1893 since G686 then G3588   G5043 your children G1473   G169 are unclean, G1510.2.3   G3568 but now G1161   G39 it is holy. G1510.2.3  
  15 G1487 But if G1161   G3588 the G571 unbeliever G5563 separates, G5563 let him be separated! G3756 [3 is not G1402 4enslaved G3588 1the G80 2brother], G2228 or G3588 the G79 sister G1722 in G3588   G5108 such cases . G1722 But in G1161   G1515 peace G2564 [2has called G1473 3us G3588   G2316 1God].
  16 G5100 For what G1063   G1492 do you know, G1135 O wife, G1487 if G3588 [2the G435 3husband G4982 1you shall deliver]? G2228 Or G5100 what G1492 do you know, G435 O husband, G1487 if G3588 [2the G1135 3wife G4982 1you shall deliver]?
  17 G1508 Except G1538 to each G5613 as G3307 God portioned, G3588   G2316   G1538 each G5613 as G2564 [3called G3588 1the G2962 2Lord] G3779 so G4043 walk! G2532 And G3779 so G1722 in G3588 [2the G1577 3assemblies G3956 1all] G1299 I set an order.
  18 G4059 [3 while being circumcised G5100 1Who G2564 2is called], G3361 let him not G1986 become uncircumcised! G1722 [3in G203 4uncircumcision G5100 1Who G2564 2is called], G3361 let him not G4059 be circumcised!
  19 G3588   G4061 Circumcision G3762 is nothing, G1510.2.3   G2532 and G3588   G203 uncircumcision G3762 is nothing, G1510.2.3   G235 but G5084 keeping G1785 the commandments G2316 of God is .
  20 G1538 Each G1722 in G3588 the G2821 calling G3739 in which G2564 he was called -- G1722 in G3778 this G3306 let him abide!
  21 G1401 A slave G2564 being called -- G3361 let it not G1473 be a care; G3199   G235 but G1487 if G2532 even G1410 you are able G1658 [2free G1096 1to be] G3123 rather -- G5530 use it!
  22 G3588 For the G1063   G1722 [3in G2962 4 the Lord G2564 2being called G1401 1slave G558 7freedman G2962 6 the Lord's G1510.2.3 5is]. G3668 In like manner G2532 also G3588 the G1658 free one G2564 being called, G1401 [3slave G1510.2.3 1is G5547 2Christ's].
  23 G5092 With value G59 you were bought; G3361 do not G1096 become G1401 slaves G444 of men!
  24 G1538 Each G1722 in G3739 which G2564 he was called, G80 brethren, G1722 in G3778 this G3306 abide G3844 with G2316 God!
  25 G4012 And concerning G1161   G3588 the G3933 virgins, G2003 [3a command G2962 4of the Lord G3756 1I do not G2192 2have], G1106 but an opinion G1161   G1325 I give G5613 as G1653 one being shown mercy G5259 by G2962 the Lord G4103 to be trustworthy. G1510.1  
  26 G3543 I think G3767 then G3778 this G2570 [2 is good G5224 1existing] G1223 because of G3588 the G1764 present G318 necessity, G3754 that G2570 it is good G444 for a man G3588   G3779 so G1510.1 to be.
  27 G1210 Have you been tied G1135 to a wife, G3361 do not G2212 seek G3080 a loosening! G3089 Have you been untied G575 from G1135 a wife, G3361 do not G2212 seek G1135 a wife!
  28 G1437 But if G1161   G2532 also G1060 you should marry, G3756 you sinned not; G264   G2532 and G1437 if G1060 [3should have married G3588 1the G3933 2virgin] G3756 she did not G264 sin; G2347 but affliction G1161   G3588 in the G4561 flesh G2192 [2shall have G3588   G5108 1such]. G1473 But I G1161   G1473 spare you. G5339  
  29 G3778 But this G1161   G5346 I say, G80 brethren, G3588 the G2540 [2time G4958 4wrapping up G3588   G3062 1remaining G1510.2.3 3is], G2443 that G2532 also G3588 the ones G2192 having G1135 wives, G5613 [2as G3361 3not G2192 4having G1510.3 1should be].
  30 G2532 And G3588 the ones G2799 weeping, G5613 as G3361 not G2799 weeping; G2532 and G3588 the ones G5463 rejoicing, G5613 as G3361 not G5463 rejoicing; G2532 and G3588 the ones G59 buying, G5613 as G3361 not G2722 holding possessions .
  31 G2532 And G3588 the ones G5530 dealing G3588 in G2889 this world, G3778   G5613 as G3361 not G2710 abusing it . G3855 [5passes by G1063 1For G3588 2the G4976 3condition G3588   G2889 4of this world]. G3778  
  32 G2309 But I want G1161   G1473 you G275 to be free from care. G1510.1   G3588 The G22 unmarried G3309 is anxious for G3588 the things G3588 of the G2962 Lord, G4459 how G700 he is pleasing G3588 to the G2962 Lord;
  33 G3588 but the one G1161   G1060 married G3309 is anxious for G3588 the things G3588 of the G2889 world, G4459 how G700 he pleases G3588 the G1135 wife.
  34 G3307 [6are assigned a part G2532 7even G3588 1The G1135 2wife G2532 3and G3588 4the G3933 5virgin]. G3588 The G22 unmarried G3309 is anxious for G3588 the things G3588 of the G2962 Lord, G2443 that G1510.3 she might be G39 holy, G2532 both G4983 in body G2532 and G4151 in spirit; G3588 but she G1161   G1060 having married G3309 is anxious for G3588 the things G3588 of the G2889 world, G4459 how G700 she shall please G3588 the G435 husband.
  35 G3778 But this G1161   G4314 for G3588   G1473 your own G1473   G4851 advantage G3004 I speak, G3756 not G2443 that G1029 [2a noose G1473 1I should put] around you, G1911   G235 but G4314 [2to G3588 3the G2158 4decent G2532 5and G2145 6well-occupied thing G3588 7with the G2962 8Lord G563 1 be undisturbed].
  36 G1487 But if G1161   G5100 anyone G807 [2to be disgraced G1909 3over G3588   G3933 4his virgin G1473   G3543 1thinks], G1437 if G1510.3 she should be G5230 advanced in years, G2532 and G3779 so G3784 it ought G1096 to be G3739 what G2309 he wants G4160 to do, G3756 he does not G264 sin; G1060 let them marry!
  37 G3739 But the one who G1161   G2476 stands G1476 settled G1722 in G3588 the G2588 heart, G3361 not G2192 having G318 necessity, G1849 [3authority G1161 1but G2192 2has] G4012 concerning G3588 his own G2398   G2307 will, G2532 and G3778 this G2919 he has judged G1722 in G3588   G2588 his heart, G1473   G3588   G5083 to give heed to G3588   G1438 his own G3933 virgin, G2573 well G4160 he does.
  38 G5620 So that G2532 also G3588 the one G1547 giving in marriage, G2573 [2well G4160 1does]; G3588 and the one G1161   G3361 not G1547 giving in marriage, G2908 [2better G4160 1does].
  39 G1135 A wife G1210 is tied G3551 by law G1909 for as long G3745   G5550 a time G2198 [2lives G3588   G435 1as her husband]; G1473   G1437 but if G1161   G2837 [2should sleep G3588   G435 1her husband], G1473   G1658 she is free G1510.2.3   G3739 to whom G2309 she wants G1060 to marry, G3440 only G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
  40 G3107 But more blessed G1161   G1510.2.3 is she G1437 if G3779 so G3306 she should remain, G2596 according to G3588   G1699 my G1106 opinion; G1380 but I think G1161   G2504 I also G4151 [2spirit G2316 3of God G2192 1have].
