1 Corinthians 7:29-35
But z this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none,
those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess,
and those who use this world as not a misusing it. For b the form of this world is passing away.
But I want you to be without care. c He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord - how he may please the Lord.
But he who is married cares about the things of the world - how he may please his wife.
There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman d cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world - how she may please her husband.
And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.
