But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they so continue, even as I.
But if they do not contain themselves, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to be burnt.
But to them that are married, not I, but the Lord, commandeth that the wife depart not from her husband.
And if she depart, that she remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And let not the husband put away his wife.
For to the rest I speak, not the Lord. If any brother hath a wife that believeth not and she consent to dwell with him: let him not put her away.
And if any woman hath a husband that believeth not and he consent to dwell with her: let her not put away her husband.
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the believing wife: and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband. Otherwise your children should be unclean: but now they are holy.
But if the unbeliever depart, let him depart. For a brother or sister is not under servitude in such cases. But God hath called us in peace.
For how knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
But as the Lord hath distributed to every one, as God hath called every one: so let him walk. And so in all churches I teach.
Is any man called, being circumcised? Let him not procure uncircumcision. Is any man called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised.
Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing: but the observance of the commandments of God.
Let every man abide in the same calling in which he was called.
Wast thou called, being a bondman? Care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
For he that is called in the Lord, being a bondman, is the freeman of the Lord. Likewise he that is called, being free, is the bondman of Christ.
You are bought with a price: be not made the bondslaves of men.
Brethren, let every man, wherein he was called, therein abide with God.
