{1 Corinthians 7:7} For 1063 I would 2309 z5719 that all 3956 men 444 were 1511 z5750 even y2532 as 5613 x2532 I myself. 1683 But 235 every man 1538 hath 2192 z5719 his proper 2398 gift 5486 of 1537 God, 2316 one 3739 3303 after this manner, 3779 and 1161 another 3739 after that. 3779
I would:
St. Paul evidently gave this advice in reference to the necessities of the church, or what he calls ("I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, [I say], that [it is] good for a man so to be." {1Co 7:26}) the present distress; for it would be perfectly absurd to imagine that an inspired apostle would in the general, discountenance marriage, since it was of the greatest importance to the existence and happiness of future generations, and expressly agreeable to a Divine institution. "Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and [as] the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?" {1Co 9:5} + "But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for [it were] better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void." {1Co 9:15} + "And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds." {Act 26:29}
But:
"But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will." {1Co 12:11} + "But he said unto them, All [men] cannot receive this saying, save [they] to whom it is given. ... For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from [their] mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive [it], let him receive [it]." {Mtt 19:11-12}
