28 so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he does love;
29 for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but does nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- the assembly,
30 because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones;
that each of you know his own vessel to possess in sanctification and honour,
not in the affection of desire, as also the nations that were not knowing God,
2 and because of the whoredom let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her proper husband;
3 to the wife let the husband the due benevolence render, and in like manner also the wife to the husband;
4 the wife over her own body has not authority, but the husband; and, in like manner also, the husband over his own body has not authority, but the wife.
Have you not known that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit in you, which you have from God? and you are not your own,
for you were bought with a price; glorify, then, God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
the meats are for the belly, and the belly for the meats. And God both this and these shall make useless; and the body is not for whoredom, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body;
14 for also the body is not one member, but many;
15 if the foot may say, 'Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, not of the body;
16 and if the ear may say, 'Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where the hearing? if the whole hearing, where the smelling?
18 and now, God did set the members each one of them in the body, according as He willed,
19 and if all were one member, where the body?
20 and now, indeed, are many members, and one body;
flee the whoredom; every sin -- whatever a man may commit -- is without the body, and he who is committing whoredom, against his own body does sin.
'Because of this I say to you, be not anxious for your life, what you may eat, and what you may drink, nor for your body, what you may put on. Is not the life more than the nourishment, and the body than the clothing?
'But, if your right eye does cause you to stumble, pluck it out and cast from you, for it is good to you that one of your members may perish, and not your whole body be cast to gehenna.
'And, if your right hand does cause you to stumble, cut it off, and cast from you, for it is good to you that one of your members may perish, and not your whole body be cast to gehenna.
