1 Corinthians 7:1-7
1 “Now concerning the things about which you wrote, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 But because of sexual immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 3 The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise the wife also to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise the husband also does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 But this I say by way of concession, not of command.7 Yet I wish that all men were even as I myself am. However, each has his own gift from God, one in this way, and another in that.”
Concerning the things about which you wrote: Paul is quoting the Corinthian church. The Corinthians were evidently saying that it is good for a man not to touch a woman. Notice that Paul is responding to this excerpt from the letter from Corinthians. Paul is, therefore, responding to this in order to bring clarity. Marriage was esteemed by Paul because of the sexual immorality existent in the Greek culture. Husbands and wives can provide for one another’s sexual needs.
