Q. 71

 

1 Corinthians 7:2–3, 5, 34, 36  (ESV)                    Back

2But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. 3The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.

5Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

34and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband.

36If anyone thinks that he is not behaving properly toward his betrothed, if his passions are strong, and it has to be, let him do as he wishes: let them marry—it is no sin.

 

 

1 Corinthians 7:2-3, 5, 34, 36  (KJ3)                    Back

2 but because of fornication, let each one have his own wife, and let each one have her own husband.

3 Let the husband give due kindness to the wife, and likewise the wife also to the husband.

5 Do not deprive one another, if not by agreement for a time, that you may devote yourselves to fasting and to prayer. And come together again on the same place, that Satan may not tempt you through your lack of self-control.

34 The wife and the virgin are different. The unmarried one cares for the things of the Lord, that she be holy in both body and spirit. But the married one cares for the things of the world, how to please the husband.

36¶ But if anyone thinks he acts unseemly toward his virgin (if she is beyond her prime, and so it ought to be), let him do what he desires; he does not sin; let them marry.

 

 

1 Corinthians 7:2–3, 5, 34, 36  (NASB95)                    Back

2But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 3The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.

5Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

34and 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.

36But 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 her marry.

 

 

1 Corinthians 7:2-3, 5, 34, 36  (WEB)                    Back

2 But, because of sexual immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

3 Let the husband give his wife the affection owed her,* and likewise also the wife her husband.

5 Don’t deprive one another, unless it is by consent for a season, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and may be together again, that Satan doesn’t tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

34 There is also a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband.

36 But if any man thinks that he is behaving inappropriately toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of her age, and if need so requires, let him do what he desires. He doesn’t sin. Let them marry.
