1 Corinthians 7 KJVA

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless *, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
9 But if they cannot contain , let them marry : for it is better to marry than to burn .
10 And unto the married I command , yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11 But and if she depart , let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away .
13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
15 But if the unbelieving depart , let him depart . A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.a

                  34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

                  38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
                  39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth ; but if her husband be dead , she is at liberty to be married to whom she will ; only in the Lord.
