Directions concerning Marriage
1 Corinthians 7:1-16
1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me, It were good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband give unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not the power of her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the husband hath not the power of his own body, but the wife.
5 Defraud not one another, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and again come together, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
6 But I speak this by permission, not by commandment.
7 For I would that all men were even as I myself am. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
8 Therefore I say unto the unmarried, and unto the widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I do.
9 But if they cannot abstain, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn.
10 And unto the married I command, 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 unto her husband, and let not the husband put away his wife.
12 But to the remnant I speak, and not the Lord, If any brother have a wife that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not forsake her.
13 And the woman which hath a husband that believeth not, if he be content to dwell with her, let her not forsake him.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband, else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not in subjection in such things, but God hath called us in peace.
16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or what knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
