So it becometh husbands to love their wives, as their own bodies. For he who his wife loveth, himself he loveth.
For no man ever hated his own body, but nourisheth it, and taketh care of it; so also the Meshiha (taketh care) of the church.
For we are members of his body, and of his flesh are we, and of his bones.
and that every man of you know to possess his vessel in sanctification and in honour,
and not in the passions of concupiscence, as the rest of the Gentiles who know not Aloha.
but, because of fornication, let a man take his wife, and let a woman take her husband.
And let a man render the love that is due unto his wife;
so also the wife to her husband. For the wife hath not authority over her body, but the husband; so also the man hath not authority over his body, but his wife.
Or, know you not that your body is the temple of the Spirit of Holiness, who dwelleth in you, (even) Him whom you have received from Aloha? And you are not your own,
for you are bought with the price; therefore glorify Aloha in your body and in your spirit, which are of Aloha.
Food is for the belly, and the belly for food; but Aloha will abolish them both. But the body was not for fornication, but for our Lord, and our Lord for the body.
14 For the body also is not one member, but many.
15 For if the foot should say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself?
16 And if the ear should say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself?
17 For if the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? And if the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?
18 But now hath Aloha set all the members severally in the body as he willed.
19 But if all were one member, where would be the body?
20 But now the members are many, but the body one.
Flee from fornication: for every sin which a man committeth is without his body; but he who committeth fornication against his own body sinneth.
WHEREFORE I say unto you, Let not your souls be anxious what you shall eat and what you shall drink, and for your bodies what you shall wear. Is not the life more excellent than food, and the body than raiment?
But if thy right eye cause thee to offend, root it out and cast it from thee: it is better to thee that one of thy members should perish, than that thy whole body should fall into gihano.
And if thy right hand cause thee to offend, cut it off and cast it from thee; for it is better to thee that one from thy members should perish, rather than thy whole body should fall into gihano.
