28 So, ought the husbands to be loving their own wives, as their own bodies,he that loveth his own wife, loveth himself,
29 No one, in fact, ever yet hated, his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it,even as, the Christ, the assembly,
30 Because, members, are we of his body;
Failed have my flesh and my heart, The rock of my heartand my portion, is God unto times age-abiding.
Therefore remove thou vexation from thy heart, and put away discomfort from thy flesh,for, youth and dawn, are vanity!
And they were both of them naked, the man and his wife,and put not each other to shame.
So then Yahweh God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed in his nostrils the breath of lifeand man became a living soul.
That ye should know, each one of you, how, of his own vessel, to possess himself in sanctification and honour:
Not with a passion of coveting,just as even the nations who know not God,
And besides, from them, my son, be admonished,Of making many books, there is no end, and, much study, is a weariness of the flesh.
Sons, are ye unto Yahweh your God,ye shall not cut yourselves, neither shall ye put baldness between your eyes for the dead.
For, a holy people, thou art unto Yahweh thy God,and, of thee, did Yahweh make choice, that thou shouldest become his people as a treasure, above all the peoples that are on the face of the ground.
Just as thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, when the body is in the womb of her that is with child, even, so, canst thou not know the work of God, who maketh all.
2 But, on account of fornications, let, each man, have, his own wife, and, each woman, have, her own husband:
3 Unto the wife, let the husband render what is her due, and, in like manner, the wife also, unto the husband,
4 The wife, over her own body, hath not authority, but the husband, and, in like manner, the husband also, over his own body, hath not authority, but the wife.
Or know ye not that, your body, is, a shrine of the Holy Spirit that is within you, which ye have from God? And ye are not your own;
For ye have been bought with a price! Therefore glorify God in your body.
I thank thee, in that fearfully was my being distinguished, Wonderful are thy works, and, mine own soul, is observing intently!
Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods; but, God, will set aside, both it and them. The body, however, is not for fornication, but, for the Lord,and, the Lord, for the body.
14 For, the body also, is not one member, but many:
15 Though the foot should sayBecause I am not a hand, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body?
16 And, though the ear should sayBecause I am not an eye, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body?
17 If, the whole body, were, an eye, where were the hearing? If, the whole were, hearing, where were, the smelling?
18 But, now, hath God set the members, each one of them in the body, even as he pleased.
19 But, if they all had been one member, Where had been, the body?
20 Now, however there are many members, yet one body;
Flee fornication! Every sin, whatsoever a man shall commit, is, outside his body, but, he that committeth fornication, bringeth sin into his own body.
21 So Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept,and he took one of his ribs, and closed up flesh instead thereof.
22 And Yahweh God builded the rib which he had taken from the man, into a woman, and brought her in unto the man.
23 And the man said, This, one, now, is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh! This, one shall be called Woman, for, out of a man, hath this one been taken.
For this cause, I say unto you: Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink ,or for your body, what ye shall put on: Is not, the life, more than, the food? And, the body, than, the raiment?
And, if, thy right eye, is causing thee to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from thee,for it profiteth thee, that, one of thy members, should perish, and not, thy whole body, be cast into gehenna.
And, if, thy right hand, is causing thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee,for it profiteth thee, that, one of thy members, should perish, and not, thy whole body, into gehenna, depart.
