fornication and forbidding to marry
1Ti 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats,
which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which
believe and know the truth.
Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like
manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange
flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of
1Th 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that
ye should abstain from fornication:
Col 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;
fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence,
and covetousness, which is idolatry:
Col 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the
children of disobedience:
Col 3:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
Eph 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it
not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath,
strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:
of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past,
that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
2Co 12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as
I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest
there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings,
2Co 12:21 And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among
you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have
not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness
which they have committed.
1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the
kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters,
nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1Co 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1Co 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the
body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
1Co 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you,
and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles,
that one should have his father’s wife.
1Co 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he
that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1Co 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have
judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so
done this deed,
1Co 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered
together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
1Co 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the
flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1Co 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven
leaveneth the whole lump?
1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new
lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed
1Co 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither
with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened
bread of sincerity and truth.
1Co 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
1Co 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or
with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must
ye needs go out of the world.
1Co 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any
man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an
idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an
one no not to eat.
Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and
he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he
a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Mat 19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying
unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
Mat 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that
he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
Mat 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and
mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Mat 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What
therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Mat 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a
writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
Mat 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your
hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it
was not so.
Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife,
except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth
adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
Mar 10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more
twain, but one flesh.
1Co 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is
one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit
against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so
that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
1Co 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is
good for a man not to touch a woman.
1Co 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his
own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
1Co 7:3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and
likewise also the wife unto the husband.
1Co 7:4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and
likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
1Co 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a
time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come
together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
1Co 7:6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
1Co 7:7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man
hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after
1Co 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for
them if they abide even as I.
1Co 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better
to marry than to burn.
1Co 7:10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let
not the wife depart from her husband:
1Co 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be
reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
1Co 7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a
wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him
not put her away.
1Co 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and
if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and
the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your
children unclean; but now are they holy.
1Co 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or
a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to
1Co 7:16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy
husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
1Co 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath
called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
1Co 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become
uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be
1Co 7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but
the keeping of the commandments of God.
1Co 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
1Co 7:21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if
thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
1Co 7:22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the
Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is
1Co 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
1Co 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide
1Co 7:25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord:
yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to
1Co 7:26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present
distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.
1Co 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou
loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
1Co 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin
marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in
the flesh: but I spare you.
1Co 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth,
that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
1Co 7:30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that
rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though
they possessed not;
1Co 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the
fashion of this world passeth away.
1Co 7:32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is
unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may
please the Lord:
1Co 7:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the
world, how he may please his wife.
1Co 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The
unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be
holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for
the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
1Co 7:35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a
snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend
upon the Lord without distraction.
1Co 7:36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely
toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so
require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
1Co 7:37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having
no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in
his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
1Co 7:38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he
that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
1Co 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth;
but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom
she will; only in the Lord.
1Co 7:40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I
think also that I have the Spirit of God.
