1 Corinthians 7:5

Context
7:5 Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a specified time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. 1  Then resume your relationship, 2  so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

1 tc Most later witnesses (א2 Ï sy) add “fasting and” (τῇ νηστείᾳ καί, th nhsteia kai) before “prayer.” But such an addition is motivated by ascetic concerns; further, its lack in Ì11vid,46 א* A B C D F G P Ψ 33 1739 1881 2464 al latt co argues decisively against its authenticity.

2 tn Grk “and be together again.”
