|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 There's more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact. As written in Scripture, "The two become one."
16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
