1 Corinthians 7:1-7:5

1. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

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.
