Thus ought men to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself,
for no one ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,
for we are members of his body.
to have each of you know how to take a wife for himself in holiness and honor,
not in the passion of lust, as the Gentiles do who know not God;
But because of the prevailing unchastity, let each man have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
Let the husband pay his wife conjugal dues and the wife her husband.
The wife has not power over her own body, but her husband has. In the same way the husband has not power over his own body, but his wife has.
Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own?
For you were bought with a price. Glorify God then in your bodies.
Food of all kinds is for the stomach and the stomach for foods. But God will end the function of one and the other. The body is not for unchastity, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand I am not of the body," it is not for that reason not of the body.
16 And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye I am not of the body," it is not for that reason not of the body.
17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?
18 But now God has placed the members each one of them in the body as he pleased.
19 If all were one member, where would be the body?
20 But now the members are many, but the body is one.
Shun unchastity. Every other sin that a man does is apart from the body, but the unchaste sins against his own body.
"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your physical life \'97 what you are to eat or what you are to drink; nor about your body \'97 what you are to wear. Is not the life more than the food and the body more than the clothing?
If your right eye is a snare to you, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is better for you that one of your members should be lost and not your whole body be cast into Gehenna.
And if your right hand is a snare to you, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you that one of your members should be lost and not your whole body go into Gehenna.
