Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:1 - And concerning the things of which ye wrote to me: good it is for a man not to touch a woman,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:2 - and because of the whoredom let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her proper husband;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:3 - to the wife let the husband the due benevolence render, and in like manner also the wife to the husband;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:4 - the wife over her own body hath not authority, but the husband; and, in like manner also, the husband over his own body hath not authority, but the wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:5 - Defraud not one another, except by consent for a time, that ye may be free for fasting and prayer, and again may come together, that the Adversary may not tempt you because of your incontinence;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:6 - and this I say by way of concurrence -- not of command,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:7 - for I wish all men to be even as I myself am; but each his own gift hath of God, one indeed thus, and one thus.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:8 - And I say to the unmarried and to the widows: it is good for them if they may remain even as I am;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:9 - and if they have not continence -- let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:10 - and to the married I announce -- not I, but the Lord -- let not a wife separate from a husband:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:11 - but and if she may separate, let her remain unmarried, or to the husband let her be reconciled, and let not a husband send away a wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:12 - And to the rest I speak -- not the Lord -- if any brother hath a wife unbelieving, and she is pleased to dwell with him, let him not send her away;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:13 - and a woman who hath a husband unbelieving, and he is pleased to dwell with her, let her not send him away;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:14 - for the unbelieving husband hath been sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife hath been sanctified in the husband; otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:15 - And, if the unbelieving doth separate himself -- let him separate himself: the brother or the sister is not under servitude in such cases, and in peace hath God called us;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:16 - for what, hast thou known, O wife, whether the husband thou shalt save? or what, hast thou known, O husband, whether the wife thou shalt save?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:17 - if not, as God did distribute to each, as the Lord hath called each -- so let him walk; and thus in all the assemblies do I direct:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:18 - being circumcised -- was any one called? let him not become uncircumcised; in uncircumcision was any one called? let him not be circumcised;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:19 - the circumcision is nothing, and the uncircumcision is nothing -- but a keeping of the commands of God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:20 - Each in the calling in which he was called -- in this let him remain;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:21 - a servant -- wast thou called? be not anxious; but if also thou art able to become free -- use it rather;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:22 - for he who is in the Lord -- having been called a servant -- is the Lord's freedman: in like manner also he the freeman, having been called, is servant of Christ:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:23 - with a price ye were bought, become not servants of men;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:24 - each, in that in which he was called, brethren, in this let him remain with God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:25 - And concerning the virgins, a command of the Lord I have not; and I give judgment as having obtained kindness from the Lord to be faithful:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:26 - I suppose, therefore, this to be good because of the present necessity, that it is good for a man that the matter be thus: --

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:27 - Hast thou been bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed; hast thou been loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:28 - But and if thou mayest marry, thou didst not sin; and if the virgin may marry, she did not sin; and such shall have tribulation in the flesh: and I spare you.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:29 - And this I say, brethren, the time henceforth is having been shortened -- that both those having wives may be as not having;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:30 - and those weeping, as not weeping; and those rejoicing, as not rejoicing; and those buying, as not possessing;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:31 - and those using this world, as not using it up; for passing away is the fashion of this world.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:32 - And I wish you to be without anxiety; the unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, how he shall please the Lord;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:33 - and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how he shall please the wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:34 - The wife and the virgin have been distinguished: the unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how she shall please the husband.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:35 - And this for your own profit I say: not that I may cast a noose upon you, but for the seemliness and devotedness to the Lord, undistractedly,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:36 - and if any one doth think it to be unseemly to his virgin, if she may be beyond the bloom of age, and it ought so to be, what he willeth let him do; he doth not sin -- let him marry.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:37 - And he who hath stood stedfast in the heart -- not having necessity -- and hath authority over his own will, and this he hath determined in his heart -- to keep his own virgin -- doth well;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:38 - so that both he who is giving in marriage doth well, and he who is not giving in marriage doth better.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:39 - A wife hath been bound by law as long time as her husband may live, and if her husband may sleep, she is free to be married to whom she will -- only in the Lord;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 7:40 - and she is happier if she may so remain -- according to my judgment; and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
