1 Corinthians 7:3-13 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
3 Let the husband render her due to the wife, and in like manner the wife to the husband. 4 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. 5 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. 6 But this I say, as consenting [to], a not as commanding [it]. 7 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. 8 But I say to the unmarried and to the widows, It is good for them that they remain even as I. 9 But if they have not control over themselves, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn. 10 But to the married I enjoin, not *I*, but the Lord, Let not wife be separated from husband; 11 (but if also she shall have been separated, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband;) and let not husband leave wife. 12 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. 13 And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to dwell with her, let her not leave [her] husband. c
