1 G1161 Now G4012 concerning G3739 the things of which G1125 [G5656] ye wrote G3427 to me: G2570 It is good G444 for a man G3361 not G680 [G5733] to touch G1135 a woman.
2 G1161 But G1223 on account of G3588 the G4202 fornications, G2192 0 let G1538 each man G2192 [G5720] have G1438 his G1135 wife, G2532 and G2192 0 let G1538 each woman G2192 [G5720] have G2398 her proper G435 husband.
3 G591 0 Let G435 the husband G591 [G5720] render G1135 to the wife G3784 [G5746] her due G2133 benevolence: G1161 and G3668 likewise G2532 also G1135 the wife G435 to the husband.
4 G1135 The wife G1850 0 doth G3756 not G1850 [G5719] exercise authority G2398 of her own G4983 body, G235 but G435 the husband: G1161 and G3668 likewise G2532 also G435 the husband G1850 0 doth G3756 not G1850 [G5719] exercise authority G2398 of his own G4983 body, G235 but G1135 the wife.
5 G650 [G5720] Defraud ye G3361 not G240 one the other, G1509 G302 except G5100 it be G1537 with G4859 consent G4314 for G2540 a season, G2443 that G4980 [G5725] ye may give yourselves G3521 to fasting G2532 and G4335 prayer; G2532 and G4905 [G5741] come G1909 G846 together G3825 again, G3363 0 that G3588 the G4567 adversary G3363 may not G3985 [G5725] tempt G5209 you G1223 for G5216 your G192 lack of self-control.
6 G1161 But G3004 [G5719] I speak G5124 this G2596 by G4774 permission, G3756 and not G2596 as a G2003 commandment.
7 G1063 For G2309 [G5719] I would G3956 that all G444 men G1511 G2532 [G5750] were G5613 as G1683 I myself. G235 But G1538 every man G2192 [G5719] hath G2398 his proper G5486 gift G1537 from G2316 God, G3739 G3303 one G3779 after this manner, G1161 and G3739 another G3779 after that.
8 G3004 [G5719] I say G1161 therefore G22 to the unmarried G2532 and G5503 widows, G2076 [G5748] It is G2570 good G846 for them G1437 if G3306 [G5661] they remain G2504 0 even G5613 as G2504 I.
9 G1161 But G1487 if G1467 0 they G3756 cannot G1467 [G5736] control themselves, G1060 [G5657] let them marry: G1063 for G2076 [G5748] it is G2909 better G1060 [G5658] to marry G2228 than G4448 [G5745] to burn.
10 G1161 And G1060 [G5761] to the married G3853 [G5719] I command, G3756 yet not G1473 I, G235 but G2962 the Lord, G5563 0 Let G3361 not G1135 the wife G5563 [G5683] depart G575 from G435 her husband:
11 G1161 G2532 But G1437 if G5563 [G5681] she shall depart, G3306 [G5720] let her remain G22 unmarried, G2228 or G2644 [G5649] be reconciled G435 to her husband: G2532 and G863 0 let G3361 not G435 the husband G863 [G5721] put away G1135 his wife.
12 G1161 But G3062 to the rest G1473 I G3004 [G5719] speak, G3756 not G2962 the Lord: G1536 If any G80 brother G2192 [G5719] hath G1135 a wife G571 that believeth not, G2532 and G846 she G4909 [G5719] is pleased G3611 [G5721] to dwell G3326 with G846 him, G863 0 let him G3361 not G863 0 put G846 her G863 [G5720] away.
13 G2532 And G1135 the woman G3748 who G2192 [G5719] hath G435 an husband G571 that believeth not, G2532 and G846 if he G4909 [G5719] is pleased G3611 [G5721] to dwell G3326 with G846 her, G863 0 let her G3361 not G863 [G5720] leave G846 him.
14 G1063 For G571 the unbelieving G435 husband G37 [G5769] is sanctified G1722 by G1135 the wife, G2532 and G571 the unbelieving G1135 wife G37 [G5769] is sanctified G1722 by G435 the husband: G686 G1893 else G2076 [G5748] were G5216 your G5043 children G169 unclean; G1161 but G3568 now G2076 [G5748] are they G40 holy.
15 G1161 But G1487 if G571 the unbelieving G5563 [G5731] departeth, G5563 [G5744] let him depart. G80 A brother G2228 or G79 a sister G1402 0 is G3756 not G1402 [G5769] under bondage G1722 in G5108 such G1161 cases: but G2316 God G2564 [G5758] hath called G2248 us G1722 to G1515 peace.
16 G1063 For G5101 how G1492 [G5758] knowest thou, G1135 O wife, G1487 whether G4982 [G5692] thou shalt save G435 thy husband? G2228 or G5101 how G1492 [G5758] knowest thou, G435 O man, G1487 whether G4982 [G5692] thou shalt save G1135 thy wife?
17 G1508 But G5613 as G2316 God G3307 [G5656] hath distributed G1538 to every man, G5613 as G2962 the Lord G2564 [G5758] hath called G1538 every one, G3779 so G4043 [G5720] let him walk. G2532 And G3779 so G1299 [G5731] I ordain G1722 in G3956 all G1577 congregations.
18 G2564 0 Is G5100 any man G2564 [G5681] called G4059 [G5772] being circumcised? G1986 0 let him G3361 not G1986 [G5737] become uncircumcised. G2564 0 Is G5100 any G2564 [G5681] called G1722 in G203 uncircumcision? G4059 0 let him G3361 not G4059 [G5744] become circumcised.
19 G4061 Circumcision G2076 [G5748] is G3762 nothing, G2532 and G203 uncircumcision G2076 [G5748] is G3762 nothing, G235 but G5084 the keeping G1785 of the commandments G2316 of God.
20 G3306 0 Let G1538 every man G3306 [G5720] remain G1722 in G5026 the same G2821 calling G1722 in G3739 which G2564 [G5681] he was called.
21 G2564 [G5681] Art thou called G1401 being a slave? G3199 0 G4671 care G3361 not G3199 [G5720] for it: G235 but G1499 if G1410 [G5736] thou mayest G1096 [G5635] be made G1658 free, G5530 [G5663] use G3123 it rather.
22 G1063 For G2564 [G5685] he that is called G1722 in G2962 the Lord, G1401 being a slave, G2076 [G5748] is G2962 the Lord's G558 freeman: G3668 likewise G2532 also G2564 [G5685] he that is called, G1658 being free, G2076 [G5748] is G5547 Anointed's G1401 slave.
23 G59 [G5681] Ye are bought G5092 with a price; G1096 0 be G3361 not G1096 [G5737] ye G1401 the slaves G444 of men.
24 G80 Brethren, G3306 0 let G1538 every man, G1722 in the state in G3739 which G2564 [G5681] he is called, G3306 [G5720] continue G1722 in G5129 it G3844 with G2316 God.
25 G1161 Now G4012 concerning G3933 virgins G2192 [G5719] I have G3756 no G2003 commandment G2962 of the Lord: G1161 yet G1325 [G5719] I give G1106 my opinion, G5613 as G1653 [G5772] one that hath obtained mercy G5259 by G2962 the Lord G1511 [G5750] to be G4103 faithful.
26 G3543 [G5719] I suppose G3767 therefore G5124 that this G5225 [G5721] is G2570 good G1223 for G1764 [G5761] the present G318 necessity, G3754 I say, that G2570 it is good G444 for a man G3779 so G1511 [G5750] to be.
27 G1210 [G5769] Art thou bound G1135 to a wife? G2212 [G5720] seek G3361 not G3080 to be loosed. G3089 [G5769] Art thou loosed G575 from G1135 a wife? G2212 [G5720] seek G3361 not G1135 a wife.
28 G1161 G2532 But G1437 if G1060 [G5661] thou marry, G264 0 thou hast G3756 not G264 [G5627] sinned; G2532 and G1437 if G3933 a virgin G1060 [G5661] marry, G264 0 she hath G3756 not G264 [G5627] sinned. G1161 Nevertheless G5108 such G2192 [G5692] shall have G2347 affliction G4561 in the flesh: G1161 but G1473 I G5339 [G5736] spare G5216 you.
29 G1161 But G5124 this G5346 [G5748] I say, G80 brethren, G2540 the season G4958 [G5772] is short: G2076 G3063 [G5748] it remaineth, G2443 that G2532 both G2192 [G5723] they that have G1135 wives G5600 [G5753] be G5613 as though G2192 [G5723] they had G3361 none;
30 G2532 And G2799 [G5723] they that weep, G5613 as G2799 [G5723] though they wept G3361 not; G2532 and G5463 [G5723] they that rejoice, G5613 as G5463 [G5723] though they rejoiced G3361 not; G2532 and G59 [G5723] they that buy, G5613 as G2722 [G5723] though they possessed G3361 not;
31 G2532 And G5530 [G5740] they that use G5127 this G2889 world, G5613 as G3361 not G2710 [G5740] abusing G1063 it: for G4976 the fashion G5129 of this G2889 world G3855 [G5719] passeth away.
32 G1161 But G1511 G2309 [G5750] I would have G5209 you G275 without care. G22 He that is unmarried G3309 [G5719] careth G3588 for the things that belong to G2962 the Lord, G4459 how G700 [G5692] he may please G2962 the Lord:
33 G1161 But G1060 [G5660] he that is married G3309 [G5719] careth G3588 for the things that are G2889 of the world, G4459 how G700 [G5692] he may please G1135 his wife.
34 G3307 [G5769] There is a difference also between G1135 a wife G2532 and G3933 a virgin. G22 The unmarried woman G3309 [G5719] careth for G3588 the things G2962 of the Lord, G2443 that G5600 [G5753] she may be G40 holy G2532 both G4983 in body G2532 and G4151 in spirit: G1161 but G1060 [G5660] she that is married G3309 [G5719] careth G3588 for the things G2889 of the world, G4459 how G700 [G5692] she may please G435 her husband.
35 G1161 And G5124 this G3004 [G5719] I speak G4314 for G5216 your G846 own G4851 [G5723] profit; G3756 not G2443 that G1911 [G5632] I may cast G1029 a noose G5213 upon you, G235 but G4314 for that which G2158 is decorous, G2532 and G2145 that ye may attend upon G2962 the Lord G563 without distraction.
36 G1161 But G1536 if any man G3543 [G5719] thinketh G807 [G5721] that he behaveth himself unseemly G1909 toward G846 his G3933 virgin, G1437 if G5230 G5600 [G5753] she hath passed the flower of her age, G2532 and G3784 [G5719] need G3779 so G1096 [G5738] requireth, G4160 [G5720] let him do G3739 what G2309 [G5719] he will, G264 [G5719] he sinneth G3756 not: G1060 [G5720] let them marry.
37 G1161 Nevertheless G3739 he G2476 [G5707] that standeth G1476 steadfast G1722 in G2588 his heart, G2192 [G5723] having G3361 no G318 necessity, G1161 but G2192 [G5719] hath G1849 authority G4012 over G2398 his own G2307 will, G2532 and G2919 0 hath G5124 so G2919 [G5758] decreed G1722 in G846 his G2588 heart G5083 [G5721] that he will keep G1438 his G3933 virgin, G4160 [G5719] doeth G2573 well.
38 G5620 So G2532 then G1547 [G5723] he that giveth her in marriage G4160 [G5719] doeth G2573 well; G1161 but G1547 0 he that giveth her G3361 not G1547 [G5723] in marriage G4160 [G5719] doeth G2908 better.
39 G1135 The wife G1210 [G5769] is bound G3551 G1909 by the law G5550 as long G3745 as G846 her G435 husband G2198 [G5719] liveth; G1161 but G1437 if G846 her G435 husband G2837 [G5686] is dead, G2076 [G5748] she is G1658 at liberty G1060 [G5683] to be married G3739 to whom G2309 [G5719] she will; G3440 only G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
