1Corinthians 7:1,2 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.

1Corinthians 7:3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence.(keep her sexually happy).and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

1Corinthians 7:4 The wife has not power of her own body, but the husband. And likewise also the husband has not power of his own body, but the wife.

1Corinthians 7:5 Defraud.(original 'deprive, separate').you not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

1Corinthians 7:6 But I speak this by permission.(out of what I have learned).and not of commandment.

1Corinthians 7:7 For I would that all men were even as I myself.(?). But every man has his proper gift of God, one after this manner and another after that.

1Corinthians 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

1Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn..(to burn?)

1Corinthians 7:10-12 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband. But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband and let not the husband put away his wife. But to the rest speak I, not the Lord.(nothing here to do with one's spirituality), If any brother has a wife that believes not and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

In the Old Testament, because of the hardness of their hearts, that is, men just did not see deep realizing that women had a precious soul, probably because they weren't aware of their own and so they got rid of a woman when they wanted to and for whatever reason they could find:.Deuteronomy 24:1-4; Mark 10:2-9.

1Corinthians 7:13 And the woman which has an husband that believes not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

1Corinthians 7:14 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.

1Corinthians 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace.

1Corinthians 7:16 For what know you, O wife, whether you shall save your husband? or how know you, O man, whether you shall save your wife? 

1Corinthians 7:17 But as God has distributed to every man, as the Lord has called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain.(original adds 'to set this principle in order', that is, let each person follow what he feels he has of God:.Romans 12:3; in other words, live from where you're at).I in all churches.

1Corinthians 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

1Corinthians 7:19.Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God

Paul talks about circumcision (Galatians 5:6-11) being an issue to some converts to Christianity in this city of Corinth, Greece way back then; Paul is saying what is important now, since the Old Testament Mosaic Law has been abolished?

1Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called..(in other words, if you being a Jew were circumcised, so what? And likewise, if you were called being a Gentile and are uncircumcised, so what? See verse 19 above)

1Corinthians 7:21 Art you called being a servant? care not for it, but if you may be made free, use it rather..(it's saying just because you are now of God, it doesn't matter spiritually if you remain a servant to someone or seek freedom from being a servant)

1Corinthians 7:22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman. Likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant.

1Corinthians 7:22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant.(original for 'servant' is 'slave', 'bondman', 'a man of servile.condition'), is the Lord's freeman.(original for 'freeman' is 'released from separation', that is, now separate from the low consciousness ego level of the world that held him to the bondage of sin, the ego world having implemented many ways to enslave free people with its unlawful, thus unfair, but legal laws, holding them back from realizing their full potential in the freedom and free gifts the Creator has given mankind). Likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's.(understand what 'Christ' is).servant..(comprehend the difference between 'free man' and 'freeman')

1Corinthians 7:23 You are bought with a price, be not you the servants of men.

1Corinthians 7:23 You are bought with a price; be not you the servants of men.

In other words, relationship with the Father comes first; don't bind yourself to things of this life which can steal too much away from this relationship, including willingly placing yourself under anything that would tend to subvert spiritual direction:.1John 5:18 "We know that whosoever is born of God sins not, but he that is begotten of God keeps himself.(is on the qui vive).and that wicked one touches him not." Romans 6:17,20 "But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but now you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. For when you were the servants of sin you were free from righteousness." 1Peter 1:18-23 "Forasmuch as you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead and gave him glory, that your faith and hope might be in God. Seeing your souls are purified in harkening to the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides for ever."

1Corinthians 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God..(in other words avoid being sucked in by the ways of the world, the ways of low consciousness living)

1Corinthians 7:26,27 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. Are you bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

1Corinthians 7:29,30 But this I say brethren, the time is short. It remaineth that both they that have wives be as though they had none, And they that weep as though they wept not and they that rejoice as though they rejoiced not and they that buy as though they possessed not;

1Corinthians 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it, for the fashion of this world passes away..(?)

1Corinthians 7:32,33 But I would have you without carefulness.(original is 'anxiety'). He that is unmarried cares for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord. But he that is married cares for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.(that is, with his wife and family as important focus).

1Corinthians 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she that is married cares for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

1Corinthians 7:35 And this I speak for your own profit, not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely and that you may attend upon the Lord without distraction.

1Corinthians 7:36 But if any man think that he behaves himself uncomely toward his virgin.(speaking of a father, as in these times, it was to father who would approve or disapprove of his daughter marrying, as some should remain virgins, such as if they lacked an ability to be in a marriage {brain injury, etc.} or as in this case, there was distress, persecution upon Christians, as verses 26,27 show), if she pass the flower of her age.(getting older and wanting to have the pleasures of sex and children).and need so require, let him do what he will, he sins not; let them marry.

1Corinthians 7:37 Nevertheless he that stands stedfast in his heart, having no necessity.(doesn't see any issue with his daughter remaining single), but has power over his own will.(is responsible for standing by decisions made).and has so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, does well.

1Corinthians 7:38 So then he that gives her in marriage does well, but he that gives her not in marriage does better..(considering the distress prevalent at the time back then, it is better to not to allow a daughter to get into a new situation with someone not quite as well known to her as her family)

1Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband lives, but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord..(2Corinthians 6:14)

1Corinthians 7:40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
