Let the man geve vnto the wyfe due benevolence. Lykwyse also the wyfe vnto the man.
The wyfe hath not power over her awne body: but the husbande. And lykewyse the man hath not power over his awne body: but the wyfe
Withdrawe not youre selves one from another excepte it be with consent for a tyme for to geve youre selves to fastynge and prayer. And afterwarde come agayne to the same thynge lest Satan tempt you for youre incontinencye.
This I saye of faveour not of comaundement.
For I wolde that all men were as I my selfe am: but every man hath his proper gyfte of God one after this maner another after that.
I saye vnto the vnmaried men and widdowes: it is good for them yf they abyde eve as I do.
But and yf they canot abstayne let them mary. For it is better to mary then to burne.
Vnto the maryed comaunde not I but the Lorde: that the wyfe separate not her selfe from the man.
Yf she separate her selfe let her remayne vnmaryed or be reconciled vnto her husbande agayne. And let not the husbande put awaye his wyfe from him.
To the remnaunt speake I and not the lorde. Yf eny brother have a wyfe that beleveth not yf she be content to dwell with him let him not put her awaye.
And ye woma which hath to her husbande an infidell yf he consent to dwell with her let her not put him awaye.
