Art thou bound unto a wife?seeknot to be loosed . Art thou loosedfrom a wife?seeknot a wife.28Butandif thou marry , thou hastnotsinned ; andif a virginmarry , she hathnotsinned . Neverthelesssuch shall havetrouble in the flesh:butIspareyou.29Butthis I say , brethren, the time is short : it remaineth , thatboth they that havewivesbe as though they hadnone;30And they that weep , as though they weptnot;and they that rejoice , as though they rejoicednot;and they that buy , as though they possessednot;31And they that usethisworld,asnotabusing it: for the fashion of thisworld passeth away .
32But I would haveyou without carefulness. He that is unmarriedcareth for the things that belong to the Lord,how he may please the Lord:33But he that is marriedcareth for the things that are of the world,how he may please his wife.
