2  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

3  Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

4  The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

5  Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

6  But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

7  For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

8  I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

9  But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

10  And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
