Nevertheless, 1 as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each person, so must he live. I give this sort of direction in all the churches.
Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.
Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk. And so I direct in all the churches.
You must accept whatever situation the Lord has put you in, and continue on as you were when God first called you. This is my rule for all the churches.
And don't be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God's place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there. God, not your marital status, defines your life. Don't think I'm being harder on you than on the others. I give this same counsel in all the churches.
Only, as the Lord has given to a man, and as is the purpose of God for him, so let him go on living. And these are my orders for all the churches.
However that may be, let each of you lead the life that the Lord has assigned, to which God called you. This is my rule in all the churches.
But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all the churches.
