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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
