1 Corinthians 7:38

Doeth well (kalw poiei). So Paul commends the father who gives his daughter in marriage (gamizei). This verb gamizw has not been found outside the N.T. see on Matthew 22:30 . Shall do better (kreisson poihsei). In view of the present distress ( Matthew 7:26 ) and the shortened time ( Matthew 7:29 ). And yet, when all is said, Paul leaves the whole problem of getting married an open question to be settled by each individual case.
