World English Bible
1 Corinthians 7 (WEBP)
 Now concerning the things about which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman.
 But, because of sexual immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
 Let the husband give his wife the affection owed her,° and likewise also the wife her husband.
 The wife doesn’t have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise also the husband doesn’t have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
 Don’t deprive one another, unless it is by consent for a season, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and may be together again, that Satan doesn’t tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
 But this I say by way of concession, not of commandment.
 Yet I wish that all men were like me. However, each man has his own gift from God, one of this kind, and another of that kind.
 But I say to the unmarried and to widows, it is good for them if they remain even as I am.
 But if they don’t have self-control, let them marry. For it’s better to marry than to burn with passion.
 But to the married I command—not I, but the Lord—that the wife not leave her husband
 (but if she departs, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband not leave his wife.
 But to the rest I—not the Lord—say, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she is content to live with him, let him not leave her.
 The woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he is content to live with her, let her not leave her husband.
 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
 Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us in peace.
 For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
 Only, as the Lord has distributed to each man, as God has called each, so let him walk. So I command in all the assemblies.
 Was anyone called having been circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised.
 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is keeping God’s commandments.
 Let each man stay in that calling in which he was called.
 Were you called being a bondservant? Don’t let that bother you, but if you get an opportunity to become free, use it.
 For he who was called in the Lord being a bondservant is the Lord’s free man. Likewise he who was called being free is Christ’s bondservant.
 You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men.
 Brothers, let each man, in whatever condition he was called, stay in that condition with God.
 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who has obtained mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy.
 Therefore I think that because of the distress that is on us, it’s good for a man to remain as he is.
 Are you bound to a wife? Don’t seek to be freed. Are you free from a wife? Don’t seek a wife.
 But if you marry, you have not sinned. If a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have oppression in the flesh, and I want to spare you.
 But I say this, brothers: the time is short. From now on, both those who have wives may be as though they had none;
 and those who weep, as though they didn’t weep; and those who rejoice, as though they didn’t rejoice; and those who buy, as though they didn’t possess;
 and those who use the world, as not using it to the fullest. For the mode of this world passes away.
 But I desire to have you to be free from cares. He who is unmarried is concerned for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord;
 but he who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife.
 There is also a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband.
 This I say for your own benefit, not that I may ensnare you, but for that which is appropriate, and that you may attend to the Lord without distraction.
 But if any man thinks that he is behaving inappropriately toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of her age, and if need so requires, let him do what he desires. He doesn’t sin. Let them marry.
 But he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no urgency, but has power over his own will, and has determined in his own heart to keep his own virgin, does well.
 So then both he who gives his own virgin in marriage does well, and he who doesn’t give her in marriage does better.
 A wife is bound by law for as long as her husband lives; but if the husband is dead, she is free to be married to whomever she desires, only in the Lord.
 But she is happier if she stays as she is, in my judgment, and I think that I also have God’s Spirit.
1 Corinthians 7:3 NU and TR have “what is owed her” instead of “the affection owed her”.

1 Corinthians 7 (KJVS)
 Now G1161 concerning G4012 the things whereof G3739 ye wrote G1125 (AorActInd) unto me G3427: [It is] good G2570 for a man G444 not G3361 to touch G680 (PresMidInf) a woman G1135.
 Nevertheless G1223 G1161, [to avoid] fornication G4202, let G2192 every man G1538 have G2192 (PresActImpr) his own G1438 wife G1135, and G2532 let G2192 every woman G1538 have G2192 (PresActImpr) her own G2398 husband G435.
 Let G591 the husband G435 render G591 (PresActImpr) unto the wife G1135 due G3784 (PresPasPtc) benevolence G2133: and G1161 likewise G3668 also G2532 the wife G1135 unto the husband G435.
 The wife G1135 hath G1850 not G3756 power G1850 (PresActInd) of her own G2398 body G4983, but G235 the husband G435: and G1161 likewise G3668 also G2532 the husband G435 hath G1850 not G3756 power G1850 (PresActInd) of his own G2398 body G4983, but G235 the wife G1135.
 Defraud ye G650 (PresActImpr) not G3361 one the other G240, except G1509 G302 [it be] G5100 with G1537 consent G4859 for G4314 a time G2540, that G2443 ye may give yourselves G4980 (PresActSubj) to fasting G3521 and G2532 prayer G4335; and G2532 come G4905 (PresMidPasDepSubj) together G1909 G846 again G3825, that G3363 Satan G4567 tempt G3985 (PresActSubj) you G5209 not G3363 for G1223 your G5216 incontinency G192.
 But G1161 I speak G3004 (PresActInd) this G5124 by G2596 permission G4774, [and] not G3756 of G2596 commandment G2003.
 For G1063 I would G2309 (PresActInd) that all G3956 men G444 were G1511 (PresInf) even G2532 as G5613 I myself G1683. But G235 every man G1538 hath G2192 (PresActInd) his proper G2398 gift G5486 of G1537 God G2316, one G3739 G3303 after this manner G3779, and G1161 another G3739 after that G3779.
 I say G3004 (PresActInd) therefore G1161 to the unmarried G22 and G2532 widows G5503, It is G2076 (PresInd) good G2570 for them G846 if G1437 they abide G3306 (AorActSubj) even G2504 as G5613 I G2504.
 But G1161 if G1487 they G1467 cannot G3756 contain G1467 (PresMidPasDepInd), let them marry G1060 (AorActImpr): for G1063 it is G2076 (PresInd) better G2909 to marry G1060 (AorActInf) than G2228 to burn G4448 (PresPasInf).
 And G1161 unto the married G1060 (PerfActPtc) I command G3853 (PresActInd), [yet] not G3756 I G1473, but G235 the Lord G2962, Let G5563 not G3361 the wife G1135 depart G5563 (AorPasInf) from G575 [her] husband G435:
 But G1161 and G2532 if G1437 she depart G5563 (AorPasInd), let her remain G3306 (PresActImpr) unmarried G22, or G2228 be reconciled G2644 (Aor2PasImpr) to [her] husband G435: and G2532 let G863 not G3361 the husband G435 put away G863 (PresActInf) [his] wife G1135.
 But G1161 to the rest G3062 speak G3004 (PresActInd) I G1473, not G3756 the Lord G2962: If any G1536 brother G80 hath G2192 (PresActInd) a wife G1135 that believeth not G571, and G2532 she G846 be pleased G4909 (PresActInd) to dwell G3611 (PresActInf) with G3326 him G846, let him G863 not G3361 put G863 her G846 away G863 (PresActImpr).
 And G2532 the woman G1135 which G3748 hath G2192 (PresActInd) an husband G435 that believeth not G571, and G2532 if he G846 be pleased G4909 (PresActInd) to dwell G3611 (PresActInf) with G3326 her G846, let her G863 not G3361 leave G863 (PresActImpr) him G846.
 For G1063 the unbelieving G571 husband G435 is sanctified G37 (PerfPasInd) by G1722 the wife G1135, and G2532 the unbelieving G571 wife G1135 is sanctified G37 (PerfPasInd) by G1722 the husband G435: else G686 G1893 were G2076 (PresInd) your G5216 children G5043 unclean G169; but G1161 now G3568 are they G2076 (PresInd) holy G40.
 But G1161 if G1487 the unbelieving G571 depart G5563 (PresMidInd), let him depart G5563 (PresPasImpr). A brother G80 or G2228 a sister G79 is G1402 not G3756 under bondage G1402 (PerfPasInd) in G1722 such G5108 [cases]: but G1161 God G2316 hath called G2564 (PerfActInd) us G2248 to G1722 peace G1515.
 For G1063 what G5101 knowest thou G1492 (PerfActInd), O wife G1135, whether G1487 thou shalt save G4982 (FutActInd) [thy] husband G435? or G2228 how G5101 knowest thou G1492 (PerfActInd), O man G435, whether G1487 thou shalt save G4982 (FutActInd) [thy] wife G1135?
 But G1508 as G5613 God G2316 hath distributed G3307 (AorActInd) to every man G1538, as G5613 the Lord G2962 hath called G2564 (PerfActInd) every one G1538, so G3779 let him walk G4043 (PresActImpr). And G2532 so G3779 ordain I G1299 (PresMidInd) in G1722 all G3956 churches G1577.
 Is G2564 any man G5100 called G2564 (AorPasInd) being circumcised G4059 (PerfPasPtc)? let him G1986 not G3361 become uncircumcised G1986 (PresMidPasDepImpr). Is G2564 any G5100 called G2564 (AorPasInd) in G1722 uncircumcision G203? let him G4059 not G3361 be circumcised G4059 (PresPasImpr).
 Circumcision G4061 is G2076 (PresInd) nothing G3762, and G2532 uncircumcision G203 is G2076 (PresInd) nothing G3762, but G235 the keeping G5084 of the commandments G1785 of God G2316.
 Let G3306 every man G1538 abide G3306 (PresActImpr) in G1722 the same G5026 calling G2821 wherein G1722 G3739 he was called G2564 (AorPasInd).
 Art thou called G2564 (AorPasInd) [being] a servant G1401? care G3199 G4671 not G3361 for it G3199 (PresActImpr): but G235 if G1499 thou mayest G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) be made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) free G1658, use G5530 (AorMidDepImpr) [it] rather G3123.
 For G1063 he that is called G2564 (AorPasPtc) in G1722 the Lord G2962, [being] a servant G1401, is G2076 (PresInd) the Lord’s G2962 freeman G558: likewise G3668 also G2532 he that is called G2564 (AorPasPtc), [being] free G1658, is G2076 (PresInd) Christ’s G5547 servant G1401.
 Ye are bought G59 (AorPasInd) with a price G5092; be G1096 not G3361 ye G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) the servants G1401 of men G444.
 Brethren G80, let G3306 every man G1538, wherein G1722 G3739 he is called G2564 (AorPasInd), therein G1722 G5129 abide G3306 (PresActImpr) with G3844 God G2316.
 Now G1161 concerning G4012 virgins G3933 I have G2192 (PresActInd) no G3756 commandment G2003 of the Lord G2962: yet G1161 I give G1325 (PresActInd) my judgment G1106, as G5613 one that hath obtained mercy G1653 (PerfPasPtc) of G5259 the Lord G2962 to be G1511 (PresInf) faithful G4103.
 I suppose G3543 (PresActInd) therefore G3767 that this G5124 is G5225 (PresActInf) good G2570 for G1223 the present G1764 (PerfActPtc) distress G318, [I say], that G3754 [it is] good G2570 for a man G444 so G3779 to be G1511 (PresInf).
 Art thou bound G1210 (PerfPasInd) unto a wife G1135? seek G2212 (PresActImpr) not G3361 to be loosed G3080. Art thou loosed G3089 (PerfPasInd) from G575 a wife G1135? seek G2212 (PresActImpr) not G3361 a wife G1135.
 But G1161 and G2532 if G1437 thou marry G1060 (AorActSubj), thou hast G264 not G3756 sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd); and G2532 if G1437 a virgin G3933 marry G1060 (AorActSubj), she hath G264 not G3756 sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd). Nevertheless G1161 such G5108 shall have G2192 (FutActInd) trouble G2347 in the flesh G4561: but G1161 I G1473 spare G5339 (PresMidPasDepInd) you G5216.
 But G1161 this G5124 I say G5346 (PresInd), brethren G80, the time G2540 [is] short G4958 (PerfPasPtc): it remaineth G2076 (PresInd) G3063, that G2443 both G2532 they that have G2192 (PresActPtc) wives G1135 be G5600 (PresSubj) as though G5613 they had G2192 (PresActPtc) none G3361;
 And G2532 they that weep G2799 (PresActPtc), as G5613 though they wept G2799 (PresActPtc) not G3361; and G2532 they that rejoice G5463 (PresActPtc), as G5613 though they rejoiced G5463 (PresActPtc) not G3361; and G2532 they that buy G59 (PresActPtc), as G5613 though they possessed G2722 (PresActPtc) not G3361;
 And G2532 they that use G5530 (PresMidPasDepPtc) this G5127 world G2889, as G5613 not G3361 abusing G2710 (PresMidPasDepPtc) [it]: for G1063 the fashion G4976 of this G5129 world G2889 passeth away G3855 (PresActInd).
 But G1161 I would have G1511 (PresInf) G2309 (PresActInd) you G5209 without carefulness G275. He that is unmarried G22 careth G3309 (PresActInd) for the things that belong to G3588 the Lord G2962, how G4459 he may please G700 (FutActInd) the Lord G2962:
 But G1161 he that is married G1060 (AorActPtc) careth G3309 (PresActInd) for the things that are G3588 of the world G2889, how G4459 he may please G700 (FutActInd) [his] wife G1135.
 There is difference [also] between G3307 (PerfPasInd) a wife G1135 and G2532 a virgin G3933. The unmarried woman G22 careth for G3309 (PresActInd) the things G3588 of the Lord G2962, that G2443 she may be G5600 (PresSubj) holy G40 both G2532 in body G4983 and G2532 in spirit G4151: but G1161 she that is married G1060 (AorActPtc) careth G3309 (PresActInd) for the things G3588 of the world G2889, how G4459 she may please G700 (FutActInd) [her] husband G435.
 And G1161 this G5124 I speak G3004 (PresActInd) for G4314 your G5216 own G846 profit G4851 (PresActPtc); not G3756 that G2443 I may cast G1911 (Aor2ActSubj) a snare G1029 upon you G5213, but G235 for that which G4314 is comely G2158, and G2532 that ye may attend upon G2145 the Lord G2962 without distraction G563.
 But G1161 if any man G1536 think G3543 (PresActInd) that he behaveth himself uncomely G807 (PresActInf) toward G1909 his G846 virgin G3933, if G1437 she pass the flower of [her] age G5230 G5600 (PresSubj), and G2532 need G3784 (PresActInd) so G3779 require G1096 (PresMidPasDepInf), let him do G4160 (PresActImpr) what G3739 he will G2309 (PresActInd), he sinneth G264 (PresActInd) not G3756: let them marry G1060 (PresActImpr).
 Nevertheless G1161 he G3739 that standeth G2476 (ImpfActInd) (PerfActInd) stedfast G1476 in G1722 his heart G2588, having G2192 (PresActPtc) no G3361 necessity G318, but G1161 hath G2192 (PresActInd) power G1849 over G4012 his own G2398 will G2307, and G2532 hath G2919 so G5124 decreed G2919 (PerfActInd) in G1722 his G846 heart G2588 that he will keep G5083 (PresActInf) his G1438 virgin G3933, doeth G4160 (PresActInd) well G2573.
 So G5620 then G2532 he that giveth [her] in marriage G1547 (PresActPtc) doeth G4160 (PresActInd) well G2573; but G1161 he that giveth [her] G1547 not G3361 in marriage G1547 (PresActPtc) doeth G4160 (PresActInd) better G2908.
 The wife G1135 is bound G1210 (PerfPasInd) by the law G3551 G1909 as long G5550 as G3745 her G846 husband G435 liveth G2198 (PresActInd); but G1161 if G1437 her G846 husband G435 be dead G2837 (AorPasSubj), she is G2076 (PresInd) at liberty G1658 to be married G1060 (AorPasInf) to whom G3739 she will G2309 (PresActInd); only G3440 in G1722 the Lord G2962.
 But G1161 she is G2076 (PresInd) happier G3107 if G1437 she G3306 so G3779 abide G3306 (AorActSubj), after G2596 my G1699 judgment G1106: and G1161 I think G1380 (PresActInd) also G2504 that I have G2192 (PresActInf) the Spirit G4151 of God G2316.
Young’s Literal Translation
1 Corinthians 7 (YLT)
 And concerning the things of which ye wrote to me: good it is for a man not to touch a woman,
 and because of the whoredom let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her proper husband;
 to the wife let the husband the due benevolence render, and in like manner also the wife to the husband;
 the wife over her own body hath not authority, but the husband; and, in like manner also, the husband over his own body hath not authority, but the wife.
 Defraud not one another, except by consent for a time, that ye may be free for fasting and prayer, and again may come together, that the Adversary may not tempt you because of your incontinence;
 and this I say by way of concurrence-not of command,
 for I wish all men to be even as I myself am; but each his own gift hath of God, one indeed thus, and one thus.
 And I say to the unmarried and to the widows: it is good for them if they may remain even as I am;
 and if they have not continence-let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn;
 and to the married I announce-not I, but the Lord-let not a wife separate from a husband:
 but and if she may separate, let her remain unmarried, or to the husband let her be reconciled, and let not a husband send away a wife.
 And to the rest I speak-not the Lord-if any brother hath a wife unbelieving, and she is pleased to dwell with him, let him not send her away;
 and a woman who hath a husband unbelieving, and he is pleased to dwell with her, let her not send him away;
 for the unbelieving husband hath been sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife hath been sanctified in the husband; otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.
 And, if the unbelieving doth separate himself-let him separate himself: the brother or the sister is not under servitude in such cases, and in peace hath God called us;
 for what, hast thou known, O wife, whether the husband thou shalt save? or what, hast thou known, O husband, whether the wife thou shalt save?
 if not, as God did distribute to each, as the Lord hath called each-so let him walk; and thus in all the assemblies do I direct:
 being circumcised-was any one called? let him not become uncircumcised; in uncircumcision was any one called? let him not be circumcised;
 the circumcision is nothing, and the uncircumcision is nothing-but a keeping of the commands of God.
 Each in the calling in which he was called-in this let him remain;
 a servant-wast thou called? be not anxious; but if also thou art able to become free-use it rather;
 for he who is in the Lord-having been called a servant-is the Lord’s freedman: in like manner also he the freeman, having been called, is servant of Christ:
 with a price ye were bought, become not servants of men;
 each, in that in which he was called, brethren, in this let him remain with God.
 And concerning the virgins, a command of the Lord I have not; and I give judgment as having obtained kindness from the Lord to be faithful:
 I suppose, therefore, this to be good because of the present necessity, that it is good for a man that the matter be thus:-
 Hast thou been bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed; hast thou been loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
 But and if thou mayest marry, thou didst not sin; and if the virgin may marry, she did not sin; and such shall have tribulation in the flesh: and I spare you.
 And this I say, brethren, the time henceforth is having been shortened-that both those having wives may be as not having;
 and those weeping, as not weeping; and those rejoicing, as not rejoicing; and those buying, as not possessing;
 and those using this world, as not using it up; for passing away is the fashion of this world.
 And I wish you to be without anxiety; the unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, how he shall please the Lord;
 and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how he shall please the wife.
 The wife and the virgin have been distinguished: the unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how she shall please the husband.
 And this for your own profit I say: not that I may cast a noose upon you, but for the seemliness and devotedness to the Lord, undistractedly,
 and if any one doth think it to be unseemly to his virgin, if she may be beyond the bloom of age, and it ought so to be, what he willeth let him do; he doth not sin-let him marry.
 And he who hath stood stedfast in the heart-not having necessity-and hath authority over his own will, and this he hath determined in his heart-to keep his own virgin-doth well;
 so that both he who is giving in marriage doth well, and he who is not giving in marriage doth better.
 A wife hath been bound by law as long time as her husband may live, and if her husband may sleep, she is free to be married to whom she will-only in the Lord;
 and she is happier if she may so remain-according to my judgment; and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
