“That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;”
King James Version (KJV)
4:4 That every one know - For this requires knowledge, as well as chastity. To possess his vessel - His wife. In sanctification and honour - So as neither to dishonour God or himself, nor to obstruct, but further, holiness; remembering, marriage is not designed to inflame, but to conquer, natural desires.
1Th 4:4 Each one of you should know how to possess his vessel. Should restrain his bodily desires, and make even his appetites holy.
