Overview - 1 Corinthians 7
He treats of marriage;
shewing it to be a remedy against fornication,
10 and that the bond thereof ought not lightly to be dissolved.
20 Every man must be content with his vocation.
25 Virginity wherefore to be embraced;
35 and for what respects we may either marry, or abstain from marrying.

1 Corinthians 7:36  (King James Version)
But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
 


his virgin
Some interpret this of a man's continuing in a state of celibacy, and render [parthenos ,] not a virgin, but virginity; but such a construction of the original appears without example. It appears most obvious to explain it of a parent, or guardian, who had the charge of a virgin; and Kypke has shown that [ten parthenon autou ] is an elegant phrase for his virgin daughter.
