1 Corinthians 7:1–16
1 Now concerning the things about which you wrote, it is agood for a man not to touch a woman.
3 The husband must 1fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.
5 aStop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and 1come together again so that bSatan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
6 But this I say by way of concession, anot of command.
9 But if they do not have self-control, alet them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not 1divorce his wife.
13 And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she must not 1send her husband away.
16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will asave your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?
