1 Corinthians 7:9

9 But if they do not have self-control, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with desire.

1 Corinthians 7:9 In-Context

7 I wish that all people were just like me. But each has his own gift from God, one this and another that.
8 I say to the unmarried and to widows: It is good for them if they remain as I am.
9 But if they do not have self-control, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with desire.
10 I command the married-not I, but the Lord-a wife is not to leave her husband.
11 But if she does leave, she must remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband-and a husband is not to leave his wife.
