JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION 1 CORINTHIANS 7: 1-2, 5, 26, 29-33
Paul answered questions about marriage among those called on missions. (compare 1 Corinthians 7: 1-2, 5, 26, 29-33)
Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me saying, It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
Nevertheless, I say, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
* * *
Depart ye not one from 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.
* * *
I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, for a man so to remain that he may do greater good.
