Tools specific to 1Co 7:31

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 7:31

and they that use the world, as not disposing of it as their own; for the fashion of this world passes.

Tools specific to 1Co 7:32

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 7:32

But I wish you to be without care. The unmarried cares for the things of the Lord, how he shall please the Lord;

So that he that marries himself does well; and he that does not marry does better.
