3 For this is God’s will,ab your sanctification:ac that you keep awayad from sexual immorality, 4 that each of you knows how to control his own bodyE in holiness and honor, 5 not with lustful passions,ae like the Gentiles, who don’t know God. 6 This means one must not transgress against and take advantageaf of a brother or sister in this manner, because the Lord is an avenger of all these offenses, as we also previously told and warned you. 7 For God has not called us to impurityag but to live in holiness. 8 Consequently, anyone who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.ah
Or to acquire his own wife; lit to possess his own vessel
