第10段

中文 至于那已经嫁娶的,我吩咐他们,其实不是我吩咐,乃是主吩咐,说,妻子不可离开丈夫。
英文 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

第11段

中文 用世物的,要像不用世物。因为这世界的样子将要过去了。

第32段

中文 妇人和处女也有分别。没有出嫁的,是为主的事挂虑,要身体灵魂都圣洁。已经出嫁的,是为世上的事挂虑,想要怎样叫丈夫喜悦。
英文 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.

第35段

中文 我说这话,是为你们的益处。不是要牢笼你们,乃是要叫你们行合宜的事,得以殷勤服事主,没有分心的事。

英文 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.

第37段

中文 倘若人心里坚定,没有不得己的事,并且由得自己作主,心里又决定了留下女儿不出嫁,如此行也好。 #
英文 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.

第38段

中文 这样看来,叫自己的女儿出嫁是好。不叫他出嫁更好。
英文 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.

第39段

中文 丈夫活着的时候,妻子是被约束的。丈夫若死了,妻子就可以自由,随意再嫁。只是要嫁这在主里面的人。
英文 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.

第40段

中文 然而按我的意见,若常守节更有福气。我也想自己是被神的灵感动了。
英文 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
