32 But I say vnto you, whosoeuer shall put away his wife (except it be for fornication) causeth her to commit adulterie: and whosoeuer shall marrie her that is diuorced, committeth adulterie.

Matthew 5:27-28

27 Ye haue heard that it was sayd to them of olde time, Thou shalt not commit adulterie. 28 But I say vnto you, that whosoeuer looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath committed adulterie with her already in his heart.

John 8:4-11

4 And said vnto him, Master, we foud this woman committing adulterie, euen in the very acte. 5 Now Moses in our Law commanded, that such should be stoned: what sayest thou therefore? 6 And this they saide to tempt him, that they might haue, whereof to accuse him. But Iesus stouped downe, and with his finger wrote on the groud. 7 And while they continued asking him, hee lift himselfe vp, and sayde vnto them, Let him that is among you without sinne, cast the first stone at her. 8 And againe hee stouped downe, and wrote on the ground. 9 And when they heard it, being accused by their owne conscience, they went out one by one, beginning at ye eldest euen to the last: so Iesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the mids. 10 When Iesus had lift vp himselfe againe, and sawe no man, but the woman, hee saide vnto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Iesus said, Neither do I condemne thee: go and sinne no more.

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 Nowe concerning the thinges whereof ye wrote vnto mee, It were good for a man not to touche a woman. 2 Neuertheles, to auoide fornication, let euery man haue his wife, and let euery woman haue her owne husband. 3 Let the husband giue vnto the wife due beneuolence, and likewise also the wife vnto the husband. 4 The wife hath not the power of her owne bodie, but ye husband: and likewise also the husband hath not ye power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraude not one another, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may giue your selues to fasting and praier, and againe come together that Satan tempt you not for your incontinecie. 6 But I speake this by permission, not by commandement. 7 For I woulde that all men were euen as I my selfe am: but euery man hath his proper gift of God, one after this maner, and another after that. 8 Therefore I say vnto the vnmaried, and vnto the widowes, It is good for them if they abide euen as I doe. 9 But if they cannot abstaine, let them marrie: for it is better to marrie then to burne. 10 And vnto ye maried I comand, not I, but ye Lord, Let not ye wife depart from her husband. 11 But and if shee depart, let her remaine vnmaried, or be reconciled vnto her husband, and let not the husband put away his wife. 12 But to ye remnant I speake, and not ye Lord, If any brother haue a wife, ye beleeueth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not forsake her. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that beleeueth not, if he be content to dwell with her, let her not forsake him. 14 For the vnbeleeuing husband is sanctified to the wife, and the vnbeleeuing wife is sanctified to the husband, els were your children vncleane: but nowe are they holie. 15 But if the vnbeleeuing depart, let him depart: a brother or a sister is not in subiection in such things: but God hath called vs in peace. 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt saue thine husband? Or what knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt saue thy wife? 17 But as God hath distributed to euery man, as the Lord hath called euery one, so let him walke: and so ordaine I, in all Churches. 18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not gather his vncircumcision: is any called vncircumcised? let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and vncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandements of God. 20 Let euery man abide in the same vocation wherein he was called. 21 Art thou called being a seruant? care not for it: but if yet thou maiest be free, vse it rather. 22 For he that is called in the Lord, being. a seruant, is the Lords freeman: likewise also he that is called being free, is Christes seruant. 23 Yee are bought with a price: be not the seruants of men. 24 Brethren, let euery man, wherein hee was called, therein abide with God. 25 Nowe concerning virgines, I haue no commandement of the Lord: but I giue mine aduise, as one that hath obtained mercie of the Lord to be faithfull. 26 I suppose then this to bee good for the present necessitie: I meane that it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bounde vnto a wife? seeke not to be loosed: art thou loosed from a wife? seeke not a wife. 28 But if thou takest a wife, thou sinnest not: and if a virgine marrie, shee sinneth not: neuerthelesse, such shall haue trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. 29 And this I say, brethren, because the time is short, hereafter that both they which haue wiues, be as though they had none: 30 And they that weepe, as though they wept not: and they that reioyce, as though they reioyced not: and they that bye, as though they possessed not: 31 And they that vse this worlde, as though they vsed it not: for the fashion of this worlde goeth away. 32 And I would haue you without care. The vnmaried careth for the things of the Lord, howe he may please the Lord. 33 But hee that is maried, careth for the things of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also betweene a virgine and a wife: the vnmaried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy, both in body and in spirite: but shee that is maried, careth for the things of the worlde, howe shee may please her husband. 35 And this I speake for your owne commoditie, not to tangle you in a snare, but that yee follow that, which is honest, and that yee may cleaue fast vnto the Lord without separation. 36 But if any man thinke that it is vncomely for his virgine, if shee passe the flower of her age, and neede so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them be maried. 37 Neuerthelesse, hee that standeth firme in his heart, that hee hath no neede, but hath power ouer his owne will, and hath so decreed in his heart, that hee will keepe his virgine, hee doeth well. 38 So then hee that giueth her to mariage, doeth well, but he that giueth her not to mariage, doeth better. 39 The wife is bounde by the Lawe, as long as her husband liueth: but if her husband bee dead, shee is at libertie to marie with whome she will, onely in the Lord. 40 But shee is more blessed, if she so abide, in my iudgement: and I thinke that I haue also the Spirite of God.

Deuteronomy 22:22

22 If a man be found lying with a woman marryed to a man, then they shall dye euen both twaine: to wit, the man that lay with the wife, and the wife: so thou shalt put away euil from Israel.

Proverbs 6:24-29

24 To keepe thee from the wicked woman, and from ye flatterie of ye tongue of a strange woman. 25 Desire not her beautie in thine heart, neither let her take thee with her eye lids. 26 For because of the whorish woman a man is brought to a morsell of bread, and a woman wil hunt for the precious life of a man. 27 Can a man take fire in his bosome, and his clothes not be burnt? 28 Or can a man go vpon coales, and his feete not be burnt? 29 So he that goeth in to his neighbours wife, shall not be innocent, whosoeuer toucheth her.

Luke 16:18

18 Whosoeuer putteth away his wife, and marieth another, committeth adulterie: and whosoeuer marieth her that is put away from her husband, committeth adulterie.

1 Corinthians 6:18

18 Flee fornication: euery sinne that a man doeth, is without the bodie: but hee that committeth fornication, sinneth against his owne bodie.

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 There hath no tentation taken you, but such as appertaine to man: and God is faithfull, which will not suffer you to be tempted aboue that you be able, but wil euen giue the issue with the tentation, that ye may be able to beare it.
