Let the husband render her due to the wife, and in like manner the wife to the husband.
The wife has not authority over her own body, but the husband: in like manner also the husband has not authority over his own body, but the wife.
Defraud not one another, unless, it may be, by consent for a time, that ye may devote yourselves to prayer, and again be together, that Satan tempt you not because of your incontinency.
But this I say, as consenting [to], a not as commanding [it].
Now I wish all men to be even as myself: but every one has his own gift b of God: one man thus, and another thus.
But I say to the unmarried and to the widows, It is good for them that they remain even as I.
But if they have not control over themselves, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn.
But to the married I enjoin, not *I*, but the Lord, Let not wife be separated from husband;
(but if also she shall have been separated, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband;) and let not husband leave wife.
But as to the rest, *I* say, not the Lord, If any brother have an unbelieving wife, and *she* consent to dwell with him, let him not leave her.
And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to dwell with her, let her not leave [her] husband. c
