Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 7:13

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 7:13


7:11 But if she depart - Contrary to this express prohibition. And let not the husband put away his wife - Except for the cause of adultery.

7:12 To the rest - Who are married to unbelievers. Speak I - By revelation from God, though our Lord hath not left any commandment concerning it. Let him not put her away - The Jews, indeed, were obliged of old to put away their idolatrous wives, #Ezra 10:3|; but their case was quite different. They were absolutely forbid to marry idolatrous women; but the persons here spoken of were married while they were both in a state of heathenism.

7:14 For the unbelieving husband hath, in many instances, been sanctified by the wife - Else your children would have been brought up heathens; whereas now they are Christians. As if he had said, Ye see the proof of it before your eyes.

7:15 A brother or a sister - A Christian man or woman. Is not enslaved - is at full liberty. In such cases: but God hath called us to peace - To live peaceably with them, if it be possible.

    Start around page 50 and go forward. Scan for Genesis teachings.
  • My husband has converted to Islam. He told me that if I refuse to convert to watch my head of I am dead. He is a serial adulterer . He is violent. I locked him out to save my life. I don 't believe that God wants me to be abused or killed by my husband. We have been married for 46 years. I love the man I married but he is not the same man I thought I married. He has lost his mind!
