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,
Beloved! I exhort you, as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly covetings, such as take the field against the soul;
Make dead, therefore, your members that are on the earthas regardeth fornication, impurity, passion, base coveting, and greed, the which, is idolatry,
And, they who are of Christ Jesus, have crucified, the flesh, with its susceptibilities and covetings.
Whether, therefore, ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do, all things to the glory of God.
For there will be a seasonwhen, the healthful teaching, they will not endure, but, according to their own covetings, will, unto themselves, heap up teachers, because they have an itching ear,
And, from the truth, indeed, their ear, will they turn away, while, unto stories, they will turn themselves aside.
For this cause, God gave them up unto dishonourable passions; for, even their females, exchanged away the natural use into that which is against nature,
In like manner also, even the males, leaving the natural use of the female, flamed out in their eager desire one for another, males with males, the indecency, effecting,and, the necessary recompence of their error, within themselves, duly receiving;
But, if they have not self-control, let them marry, for, better, is it, to marry than to burn.
Ye ask and receive not, because that, basely, ye ask, in order that, in your pleasures, ye may spend .
