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?
18 Was any man called when he was already circumcised? He is not to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? aHe is not to be circumcised.
23 aYou were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.
24 Brethren, aeach one is to remain with God in that condition in which he was called.
28 But if you marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have 1trouble in this life, and I am trying to spare you.
29 But this I say, brethren, athe time has been shortened, so that from now on those who have wives should be as though they had none;
32 But I want you to be free from concern. One who is aunmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord;
34 and his interests are divided. The woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, is concerned about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
35 This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but 1to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.
36 But if any man thinks that he is acting unbecomingly toward his virgin daughter, if she is past her youth, and if it must be so, let him do what he wishes, he does not sin; let 1her marry.
40 But ain my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
